I'm now on Art Fire!

Hi all! Well I'm not sure how many people will see this this week because of Thanksgiving here in the States but I wanted to let you in on a little secret called Art Fire! I've only been a member for 1 day but I'm loving it so far. It is a handmade market place similar to Etsy but has some other cool features like 1 page listing set ups, shop stats and much much more! Check out the side by side comparison between Art Fire and Etsy here. I signed up as a verified member. I will still be selling on Etsy but sales have been slooooooooow as molasses so I thought I would give Art Fire a try. It's really seamless between both sites, I've basically copied and pasted listings over to Art Fire it's gone really smoothly. I still need to add more to it but have a little under 40 listings. My Grand Opening special is buy 2 bookmarks get one free. Check it out! I will have a link on the right to my new shop!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones! I'm so very thankful for many things and have truly been blessed from above.

Have a wonderful week!

The BEST handmade soap EVER made!!!

I just wanted to spotlight the BEST handmade soap I have ever tried. I am so blessed to have found Lauren AKA Sunbasilgarden on Etsy. She is the sweetest Etsy seller I've met and she's a good friend. I've been lucky to work with her on her banners and it all started with a trade after we met in a trading chatroom on Etsy.

I am IN LOVE, yes, IN LOVE with her soaps!!!!! I smile everytime I get ready to use it in the shower (no lie). I inhale the wonderful scents and let them clean me with their cute suds. OK that sounds weird but I do inhale their wonderful scents multiple times while showering. Right now I'm loving her Winter Wonderland soap which is the blue striped one in the photo. It has my favorites Yankee Candle scent Jack Frost which is a mix of vanilla and peppermint! YUM! If you have never been to her shop you NEED to pick up multiple soaps!!! She is having a few shipping deals of multiple soaps right now. These would make wonderful Christmas gifts for your loved ones. I'm planning on getting more.

So what are you waiting for!? Go get some wonderful soaps from my friend Lauren!!!!!! You can keep up with her at her blog as well.

Never Changing

This was written by my friend Russ and I wanted to share it because it's how I feel as well.

There is a lot of anxiety and uncertainty about our future, as a Nation. Obama. McCain. People are held captive by their fears of what they may be waking up to November 5.

As a Nation, it seems like we are walking on a tight rope, hanging in the balance. But as children of God, we have to realize something -

God's kingdom will come.

One man cannot stop it. God's kingdom will not change. Christ is King of all kings. Do you know that God is the one who chooses? The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes (Prov 21:1). Friends, let us not limit God.

Our next President may hold the saber of power over this Nation, but we are the ones who have the keys to the Kingdom of heaven: "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." (Matthew 16:19)

There is no other king but Christ. Obama will one day bow. McCain will one day bow... to our King. Our freedoms as Christians can never be taken away. The unction and power we have... that seed in us, can never be taken away. If anything, and as history has it, the Church always thrives - even under oppression.

The Nations will rage, but God is still God. The gates of hell will never prevail against the true Church. Cast the ballot of your life on the One who cannot fail, the Christ who holds the keys to death and hell itself. And if we are joint heirs, and He desire to give us His kingdom - it is within - then we have nothing or no one to fear. Death itself is powerless.

This is what God is saying to us today, November 2, 2008:

'According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!'

"For thus says the LORD of hosts: 'Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 'and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,' says the LORD of hosts.

'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says the LORD of hosts.

'The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,' says the LORD of hosts. 'And in this place I will give peace,' says the LORD of hosts."

HAGGAI 2:5-9

Who then is in control? Are you found in Him?

Read Psalm 46 and may you find rest and confidence in God this day.

- Russ
