French Market Bag

Typically, I pretty much have self control when it comes to shopping. I only buy what I need. That was until I spotted this beautiful cotton yarn by Yarnbee at Hobby Lobby. I fell for the “I will make something with this” excuse to justify my purchase!

Well, it wasn’t really a bad excuse! Recently, I’ve fallen in love with low waste living. This movement to be creative with the intention of saving our beautiful planet is incredible. When I think about how my careless actions can destroy the homes of our wildlife gives me discernment. I believe the Holy Spirit has been dealing with me on reducing wasteful living and use my creativity to support the cause of zero waste living!

So, I decided to use this beautiful yarn to crochet a colorful French Market bag. The colors are so much fun!

I hope to make many of these available for sale in the future! This bag was very therapeutic to make and watching the colors transition was actually exciting!

Quiet Spirit

It’s taken many years of walking and obeying the Lord, yoga, meditation, prayer, and simplifying every aspect of my life to truly embrace my inner self and achieving a quiet spirit. In fact, I still am a work in progress, but I have come a long way!

While this does please God, I believe that He wants us to achieve this for ourselves and for those around us.

Why hold onto anger, anxiety, stress, and worry when we can achieve peace of mind and help those around us?

Even in the tangible sense, why hold onto clutter when we can live in peace and simplicity and free ourselves from maintaining and drowning in stuff?!

Make an effort to simplify every aspect of your life. You can start small with cleaning out that junk drawer and eliminating social media at night. Every small effort will make a difference in your overall health so that you can be your best and help others!

Pause

Before you blurt out your opinion, purchase that item, make that decision…

Pause

Does your opinion help others or hurt others? Do you really need that item? Did you carefully ponder your decision?

Pausing prevents us from impulsive decisions. Pausing can even promote peace. Be mindful in all of your decisions!

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!

Heart of Gratitude

I’ll be honest, I’m prone to complaining. This is probably due to growing up with anxiety.

So several years ago I decided to start my day thanking The Lord for waking up, for being healthy, for waking up in a beautiful home, etc., while I was lying in bed.

Soon enough, I realized that I didn’t wake up dreading the day ahead of me. I stopped letting out a heavy sigh and groaning “I don’t want to get up” or “Why do I have to go in?”.

It was obvious because I had focused on the positive aspects of my life and God’s blessings that I no longer had room for complaining. It chased Satan’s voice away!!

I encourage you to spend some time expressing gratitude and thank God every morning, especially before reaching for your phone to scroll through your social media. It will make an amazing change in your life! This won’t be an instant change, but the more you make an effort of it, God will meet you halfway and bless you tremendously!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
