The past two weeks in crafts! (pt Zwei, that's two in German)

So, the last post was getting pretty long and had lots of pictures.  This post will probably be equally as long.  Hope you're up for that God has called us to be stewards of this Earth, so I've been trying to reuse the things that I have right now instead of buying more fabric.  I have plenty of fabric here that I can use for various things.  YAY!!!! I'm so thankful for Free Cycle also.  I got a glue gun and some glue sticks from Free Cycle, Praise God since I can't find mine anymore.  I've looked and looked, no luck.

Without further ado here are some more of the crafts that I've whipped up this weekend:

I've made this group of bracelets, (again, only from used t-shirt material and some hot glue).  Let's separate those and get a closer look. 

These are the blue set.  

Red set

Two different perspectives of the green bunch. 

Pink and a random blue one that I forgot to put in with the other blues for some reason. 

I don't know what to do with these yet.  I've made them, just not sure if I'm going to turn them into hair pieces or pins or maybe headbands.  Just not sure.  Ideas???

A bowl of mini rosettes.  I didn't want to throw out scraps so I made these.  They are just waiting to be turned into something.  :) :) :) 

And then there is this bobby pin.  Isn't it cute???

I love it! 

I also made this pin. . .

to go with this skirt.  I couldn't get a good picture by myself and hubby was doing homework.  Sorry guys!  The top was from a skirt I bought at the thrift store to make a purse for my sister.  And the bottom is from quilting scraps leftover from that same sister's quilt I made I think in December '08.  

A few more things:  I might think of starting to sell some of the things that I make (not sure yet) but would you be willing to purchase any of the things you've seen on the blog??? If you are what would be a good price range?  I just have no idea yet.  Please help me out.  We are trying to trust God right now with our finances, but it looks like I might not be able to have my job much longer if we can't get tax stuff figured out.  Right now, I pay about 15% of my income to taxes.  It's a bit rough when I didn't realize half of that would be due now since I paid estimated taxes already this year.  I'm not worrying thought, Jesus promised to provide for our needs.  We have food on our table, a very nice apartment to live in, and are able to pay our bills.  God is good.  I leave you with this passage (emphasis added): 

Proverbs 31:10-31
 A wife of noble character who can find? 
   She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
   and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
   all the days of her life.
She selects wool and flax
   and works with eager hands.
She is like the merchant ships,
   bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still dark;
   she provides food for her family
   and portions for her servant girls.
She considers a field and buys it;
   out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously;
   her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable,
   and her lamp does not go out at night.
In her hand she holds the distaff
   and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
She opens her arms to the poor
   and extends her hands to the needy.

When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
   for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
She makes coverings for her bed;
   she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
Her husband is respected at the city gate,
   where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them,
   and supplies the merchants with sashes. 

She is clothed with strength and dignity;
   she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
   and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
   and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
   her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things,
   but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
   but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. 

Give her the reward she has earned,
   and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.



I'd would love to know you stopped by. Leave us a message and I'll get back to you!
