Changes!

When we have our plans set out, The Lord usually will show us a new (and approved) thing that changes everything.

Kind of like this blog and my social media. I had started these with the intention to talk about the online crochet shop that I was going to open. However, I suddenly became so booked with special orders! I always put my customers first and make sure that their orders have my full attention. This tossed my shop’s designs to the side.

Unfortunately, I did feel lost and all over the place with my social media. This has caused me to really think about the direction I intend to go in now since I’m still booked with my special orders. And that direction is Simplicity.

Simplifying my life has changed me in so many ways. My simple life still includes my crochet and herbalism! I intend to share so much about the various ways to enjoy a simple life. I pray that you will be inspired!

Oh yeah, the online shop will open this year. The designs will be different from what I had planned. But they will be perfect for The Desert Sparrow! My website and social media will go through some changes. Expect more simplicity, turquoise, and mustard yellow!

Baby Garden Shoes

Making these shoes have given me some serious Spring Vibes! These were an order I had received and made them in size 6-12 mos.

What I love about crochet is that I get to be a part of the slow and sustainable fashion/product movement. I’m completely against fast fashion! Plus I get to personalize each product as I please!

Happy Monday!

Groundhog Day!

I love February! I love seeing the colors of pink and red nearly everywhere I go. Plus, it means that Spring is near. Spring is my favorite season (despite how dusty it gets here in Southern New Mexico)!

Speaking of Spring, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow. That means we should expect an early Spring!

In my early crochet years, I made this tiny Punxsutawney Phil. He doesn’t really look like a groundhog, but I still love him so much!!!

Be A Blessing

“If I knew how to crochet, I would make myself….”

This is what I constantly hear when people learn that I know how to crochet. This is followed by a list of accessories that they would hypothetically make for themselves.

I do have many aspirations of what I would like to make myself. But the joy of being able to crochet is that I can bless others with thoughtful gifts!

Before I learned how to crochet, I prayed to The Lord and asked him to help me to learn so that I can bless others. Sure enough, He helped me to quickly learn this craft by myself with YouTube videos!

Now that I make gifts for others, I truly have grasped Genesis 12:2. He has blessed me with this wonderful gift and now I use it to bless others. We are blessed to be a blessing!!!

Lies of Satan

To be very honest, I spent most of my life in insecurity. I had poor self image and hardly believed in myself.

The past couple of years, the Lord opened my eyes and I learned that all of those negative thoughts that I had about myself were lies. Lies of the enemy. Lies of Satan.

Satan’s easiest way to deceive us is to put those bad thoughts in our mind. He reminds us of these lies over and over again, which causes us to meditate and eventually believe these lies.

But we can defeat Satan by reminding him of God’s truths. When we feel like we are not pretty enough, we remind him that we are beautifully and wonderfully made. When we don’t feel smart enough, we remind him that we can do all things through Christ. The more we saturate the Word, the more we can defeat Satan and his pathetic lies!

So remember, you are amazing because you are a child of the most high!
