A Little Bit of Blog Housekeeping

Tuesday, August 25, 2020


Happy Tuesday, My Lovelies!

I don't really know what to do with my plans this week because we might have family evacuate if things get messy in Southern Louisiana.  We might have house guests!  I will keep you posted.

I've had several emails about the ribbons and pens I've posted on Instagram and the blog(s), so I thought I would share the Etsy Shops from whence they came.

I love looking at Etsy....the creativity on that site blows me away!  The pretty peony pens are from Whimsy Charm Boutique.  I needed something to brighten my desk, and these pens do just that!  They look like real flowers.  I am very pleased with them!

My desk in the kitchen.  
I hear it's a trend to take the desks out of kitchens, but I still love and use mine.  What about you?

I also bought ribbon for projects:

The pale pink Paris ribbon and the floral shabby chic ribbon is from Perri Ann's Arts and Things.
The hand-stamped muslin ribbon is from BeQueath.

Perri Ann also included these extras:  coordinating craft papers and the pretty little stamped bag.

I am thinking of something fun to do with the paper.

I also want to thank y'all for reading my Jesus Is Calling devo blog.  Y'all are the best!

Also I sent out my TinyLetter newsletter yesterday afternoon.  Here is a LINK to the TinyLetter if you're interested.  If you like what you read, you can use the form at the top of the sidebar to subscribe.  

Until next time...
