Good luck to your hubby in finding employment out there. I know this is scary for you but it is so true that when one door closes another one opens. It sounds cliche but those cliches exist for a reason.

Sarah said...

Sending hugs and prayers. I love your new creations - keep crafting!

He who clothes the lilies and feeds the sparrows cares more for you than you know. Keep faith. Possibly something better is around the corner.

I just discovered your lovely work via Craft Gossip. I have bookmarked your designs to mention in a Valentine's Day post on Funky Finds next week. Also, I am very sorry to hear about your husband being laid off. I know how scary that can be. Jessica

Kate said...

I will definately be praying for you and your family. I am so sorry.

I ask for your prayers for my hubby too. He still has a job, but things are the most stressful I have ever seen. It's Saturday. He is at work (I know... be thankful). Please pray that this next release goes perfectly.

(((hugs)))

My husband just lost his job of 11 years. I know just how you feel and it's so so hard..... hoping things go well for you... I'm really believing this is for the best in the long run, especially for my husband. That's all I can do to sorta stay above water.. I hope you find comfort in all the support you are getting!

I'm so sorry to hear your bad news you are most def. in our prayers. So many friends and family in the same situation it's very sad and fustrating.


I love these! They are so cute! I did sewed fabric patches like that in birdhouses onto heavy cardstock for a few scrapbook pages but I'm itching to try them on wearables or pillows or something. You're fabric choices are so pretty. I'm eyeballing those adorable trees in your shop,I may have to get some for the pillow project :)
