I'm in the Blog Spotlight :o)

I'm the featured blogger?!?!  Oh wow!  No way!  Yes way!  I was chosen as one of  the "Spotlighted Blogs of the Week" over at Kristin and Jaime's Take It From Me blog.  Can you believe it?  Awww shux - I'm blushing. 

Let me extend a big WELCOME to all of the new visitors, followers and bloggers.  Thanks for stopping by.  Let me tell ya a little bit about the blog and myself... 
I enjoy making inspirational gifts:  I hand-pour soy candles and hand-craft journals, notepads and greeting cards.  And I love what I do! The most exciting part is to watch the transformation of my raw materials - sheets of paper, embellishments, o-wire, glue and ink, somehow become journals and more.  In additon to my crafts, I enjoy encouraging and motivating others with the Word of God. So, I figured, why not combine the two and incorporate the mighty Word of God with products that uplift, encourage and inspire. In my blog, you'll find posts that contain items that I've created and that are actually in my shop. You'll also find random d.i.y. crafts that I've tackled, and other creations that I've made just for myself. There are other days when there may be only an encouraging "Word" posted.  My goal is to encourage you and share my love for God, His Word and paper-crafts with you... here, in my blog.  
What I've Been Up To

I actually went out yesterday looking for new paper with Fall colos and here's what I came up with.  More "little bitty" Positive Notes.  Let me know what ya think.

Scripture 1:  Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4
Scripture 2:  The joy of the Lord is your strength.  Nehemiah 8:10

 New Tabs

I've added new tabs to the blog too.  Visit the ::shop:: tab to find out more about my boutique, The Scent of Heaven Candle Co., and see what goodies I have in store.

Happy hopping,


P.S. Be sure to make your way over to the "Welcome Wednesday" blog hop at Take It From Me to list your blog, visit others and make new friends. :o)
