Suncatcher, gift, and collage

I got my suncatcher from My Forever Child in the mail the other day. It's beautiful and it looks great in my van!! Anthony has a suncatcher in his work car too. (Excuse pics-taken with cell.)

Along with the suncatcher, Sue sent me a couple pens. Yay! I love pens! I took them to work to use but put them up otherwise they'd prolly get stolen by our usual pen thief (whoever that may be). She also sent me a little coin with foot prints on it. On the opposite side of the coin it says: Follow the footprints of the Lord. They will lead you through troubled times and brighten your life. Thank you, Sue!

I got a surprise in the mail from Celia. She send me a wooden cross keychain. It's really nice! I put it right on my keys (well, after I took the picture lol). The side that you can see says Faith 2 Corinthians 5:7. The other side says For we walk by FAITH not by sight. Thank you so much, Celia, for thinking of me!!

Have you checked out Franchesca's new blog called Abiding Hope collages? (If not, you should.)



She created a collage for my precious Carleigh and I just love it. I gave her words that made me think of Carleigh or had some meaning to them and she put them together in a beautiful collage of words. If you want one for your baby, just click the button above and it will take you there. Thank you Franchesca!

Such wonderful gifts! I love the suncatchers! Such a beautiful idea! I will definitely look at Abiding Hopes collages, Carleigh's is really nicely put together. Any idea what you will do with it? I could almost see it printed on vellum paper, frames and hung in a window to let light pass through all the "layers" of collage. It may give it a dimenional feel. Just a thought. :) Have a great weekend Holly!

They're all so sweet. . . . I think my favorite is the collage. I really like April's idea on the vellum paper with it. If you do that, be sure to share it with us.

My Daddy's my shining star. Beautiful!!!

Your new suncatcher is great and I love the Faith keychain you got! The link for the collage website isn't working (404). The fonts she used in Carleigh's collage are perfect. ~Debbie
