{12 days of Christmas – day 10 – 2012 edition}



It's Friday!!!!!


Only three more days (counting today!!! eeeeep!!) left of my 12 days of Christmas. 

Yesterday, my little girlies and I took down almost ALL of the Christmas stuff and put it away. (I totally forgot about the stuff in the front porch and yard! oops!) It was super cathartic for me! 

I need a fresh start…often!! How about you????

I talk about fresh starts a lot! Every Monday, in fact!! But for me, every morning is a fresh start for me. A time to really get it right!


{pic from HERE}

And a new year is even a BIGGER fresh start for all of us…Thus the New Years Resolutions, the gym memberships, diet books, lists and lists and lists, etc!!!

But for me, this year, I'm going to have ONE, just one resolution….and that is to "Let God…"

Our wonderful Pastor talked this last Sunday about how we all strive to do better, making our lists in the new year, expecting to do better in the year with "doing." (my paraphrasing…LOL!!) But what we need to be doing is letting GOD do the doing! in us!! and through us!!


{pic from HERE}

This doesn't mean to just sit around watching life pass us by waiting for an invisible hand to reach down and move us from one spot to another…no siree bob!!! This means to get up off of our couch and get out there so that God can nudge us in the direction He wants us to go. 

It's an exciting prospect for me…to let God…I'm super excited to see how much more abundant my life will be! Abundant in His Grace and His Mercy…and especially His Love!! 

Just a minute ago, there was this annoying chirping ouside…not the normal beautiful bird singing, but annoying short staccato chirping. Three weeks ago, I probably would have starting pounding on the window for it to stop! But Mr Gorgeous grabbed me one day out of my craft studio and took me to our bedroom window and showed me what it was that was making that annoying chirping that had been waking us up each morning (a bit too early for musicians, I must say!!). It was a GORGEOUS Cardinal. I adore cardinals, and when I found that annoying sound was coming from him, it immediately wasn't annoying!!

{pic from HERE}

So, just a minute ago, I couldn't keep blogging without stopping and looking at the beauty of that cardinal. I looked all around the bushes around my window and finally found him. Sooooo beautiful! This is how God changes our hearts…how He moves us…with us leaning into Him and His plans for us…

…it's my fresh start!!!


and for a fresh start for you, I have a Fabric Giveaway from my darling wonderful friend, Julie over at the Intrepid Thread!!!! yay!!!

Here's what she's giving away today!


a fat quarter pack of Blomma designed by Jessica Swift from Blend Fabrics !! (find it here in her shop!!)

To win this pack of fabric, all you have to do is just leave a comment on this post!! No other hoops, just leave a comment!! yay!!

I can't wait to hear from you!

The giveaway closes Monday morning (same as yesterday's bunting pack giveaway!) when I get up and get on the computer! Mr Random will pick a winner! Be sure and leave your email address so Julie and I can contact you! Yay!!!


One last thing…

be sure to sign up for my newsletter. It will be filled with inspiration, links and ideas for your creative soul! And it won't be everyday, by any means!! 

In my next newsletter (which hopefully will go out tomorrow!!!), you will receive the link to a free embroidery pattern. I hope to have one in each of my newsletters!! And this one is right along the lines of what I was talking about today…


I'm praying for you and your new year that God would bless it abundantly and lead you to new heights and adventures…and I'm praying that you hear that beautiful chirping and get inspired to see what God has for you! 

It's pretty amazing!!! blessings!!!

    Cardinals abound out here and in Missouri where I grew up ( not talking baseball team haha). They are my favorite, but they can make some noise.

    In GA, we had cardinals that nested near our kitchen every year – their chatter is certainly distinctive. I guess we all have our positives along with those other traits that those who love us accept graciously.

    Just found your blog – so awesome to read your reflections on how God can speak to us also through his creation – cardinals are indeed a beautiful bird. Having recently moved away from Ontario to Northern BC, cardinals are one of the things I am really missing this winter. We do have deer grazing in the backyard instead and have also seen the occasional pilliated woodpecker instead – so who’s complaining! God shows his splendor no matter where we are! Have a blessed New Year!

    I agree with you about the Cardinal – it was always such a rare but very welcome sight (and sound) when we would glimpse our wee red friend in the cedar hedge in our backyard. And amazing giveaway – thank you to you and Julie! amycav at hotnmail dot com

That He will help to get us where He wants us if we are open to it. Can’t wait to read your newsletter, too. 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway, and for the devotional thought. I try always to remember this idea, which I’m paraphrasing: God does indeed answer prayers, and most often He uses other people to do that. So many times I have seen strangers and friends step in and be the very answer to prayers they have no way of knowing were being uttered. I want to be, as you say, out there, ready to be nudged, so I can be someone else’s answer–not because I am wise or virtuous, but because our Heavenly Father knows he can count on me to act when I’m prompted to do so.

What a super lovely fabric bundle Julie has put together!

    Wonderful post. All beautiful ideas. I’ve always loved Cardinals myself and I attribute that to my Mother who loved birds and gardening. In fact, I have a bird feeder 3 feet from my kitchen sink outside a huge window there and I have Cardinals all year long feeding there as well as Goldfinches and another favorite, the Baltimore Oriole when they come through. Those are just gorgeous birds as well.

    My home now is the Mohave Desert in Northwestern Arizona. A lovely place but no cardinals. Most of our birds are tan or brown. I miss the brightly colored birds. There is compensation however. We saw a pair of golden eagles a few days ago and the hummingbirds will be back in a few months.

    I am so glad I found your blog, (through Julie) I have been looking at your wonderful creations. I have added you to my goggle home page so I can see any new activity. I love Cardinals also, what a beautiful creation the Lord has made with them. We live in Idaho and I have never seen one here.
    Thanks for the chance to win the lovely fabrics!

    I usuallly to have a hard time putting away all my Christmas decorations but this year I was glad to de clutter and reorganize this past week. It feels so fresh and clean. Hubby and I put up pictures that have been stacked in 3 large plastic bins since we remodeled, 2 years ago! I was excited to see how they looked without all the Christmas around. The house looks good. Love the cardinal. Sometimes I see a blue jay around here. Thanks.

    Thanks for the giveaway. I found you through Intrepid Thread a blog I follow. It is my experience that living a life of faith requires trust…trust in God, not in what folks might say or do…just one to trust, that’s where my heart and mind and spirit live every day.

    Thank you for the opportunity you offered with this give away. I love cardinals and have a few that I search for when I hear them singing. They do remind a person to look at the beauty He has given us in the world.

    Cardinals are soooo gorgeous! It has been a life long freak of mine to actually see one. I live in California and, sadly, we don’t have any here. Love your embroidery piece! We do have many, many beautiful birds that I adore watching.
