Something a Little Different

I took a short break from stamping last week to make a special gift for a friend. A Pastor at our church has been working with children & youth for 20 years and is celebrating that milestone today. That's 20 years in Children's Ministry and Youth Ministry at.the.same.church! I think that is pretty remarkable and I have loved seeing him mature from an Intern with children's church to leading hundreds of children & youth in their walk with Jesus Christ.

He has a lovely family and his wife asked if someone could take the sweatshirts from nearly a decade of Youth Winter Retreats and make a quilt. I was happy to take this on and along with some blue jeans from his closet "clean out" I cut, ironed, snipped, sewed, layered, and completed a special keepsake full of memories.



In the earlier years of creating sweatshirts for the Winter Retreats Blaine was the Middle School Youth Pastor so there is one sweatshirt design for each of those years. In 2014 he became the Pastor for both Middle School & High School students so there are sweatshirts with the same design in different color schemes since then.



I consider it a privilege to have been able to sew this quilt and know that Blaine and Jen will keep plenty warm under it's HEAVY weight. (I overheard that the 1 & 3 year old boys will not be touching it for awhile) #keepitclean 



Enjoy Blaine!

June Paper Pumpkin + Broadway Bound Suite

What could be better than receiving a fun Paper Pumpkin Project Kit in the mail? How about one that coordinates with the new Broadway Bound Suite?!?! The Paper Pumpkin kit will be a great project on its own AND contain it will get you started on fun alternative projects to make! 

Here is the Broadway Bound Suite as featured on pages 68 & 69 of the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog...




I love Lemon Lime Twist and Lovely Lipstick with accents of Basic Black & Gold! It's SO bright and cheery.

We don't know exactly what will be in the June Paper Pumpkin Project Kit but if you love these colors and have any birthdays to celebrate in your future, you need this kit!




Please don't wait until June 10th to make sure your Paper Pumpkin subscription is in active status - it is very likely that this kit will sell-out early.
