Tackling Life with My Heart, Hands, and Faith

"Why do I make things?
Well because I enjoy it, of course...
but it also somehow helps me remember who I am and who I belong too.

I have been an avid crafter for as long as I can remember.
Crafting is something I've just always done, something I've always loved...

Being creative is not a single act, but the act of living itself.

It's being on fire with imagination, ignited by the certainty of my relationship with a living God ...

It’s knowing that my life has been crafted and built on a foundation that is true.

It's knowing that I have a purpose and that I have been fearfully and wonderfully made by the greatest creator of all.

I do what I love...and I love what I do....

 Keep calm and craft on!

  1. This is lovely. Sometimes its so great to step back and ask ourselves why we do what we do... and why we love it! Thank you :)

  2. Thank you Amanda for your sweet thoughts :)

  3. My crafting has certainly helped me to keep grounded since losing my dear husband (of nearly 43 years) last may. The Cuddlies have been a real boon.

    Just dropping by from the Etsy Blogging Buddies team to follow you: invite you to do the same by visiting us at www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com. See you there?


  4. Thank you Isobel for sharing your story.
    Your cuddlies are very cute :)
