If you know me at all, you know I'm creative. Art, photography, graphic design, writing, crafting, decorating - all of it. I love it. And while there are very few days that I miss being in the work force, I do miss having a daily, creative outlet. Now that I'm home full-time with my sweet boys, one way I keeping my creativity alive amidst the diapers, laundry and baby-talking is by making and selling beaded crosses. 

Since Easter is coming up in just a couple of weeks, I thought I'd offer a special deal on some crosses that I currently have in stock. The handmade, beaded crosses are 3.5" tall, come in a gift box and include a ribbon for hanging. They are normally $30.00 each (shipping included for U.S. addresses), BUT if you order one of the crosses below before March 31st, I'll drop the price to $25.00 and have it shipped to you in time for Easter (U.S. addresses only). You can email me your order and payments can be made via PaypPal. Please mention this Easter Sale in your email and include your mailing address. First come, first served.

  1. I LOVE my "We're All in This Together" cross!

    1. That one is my favorite as well. Obviously I love the purpose and story behind that cross, but I also love the bright fun colors.

    2. I am so glad that I ordered "Wer'e All in This Together" crosses from you. It pleased me to gift one to the hostess of a baby shower I attended. Your crosses are boxed so attractively.

  2. We just gifted the "We're All in This Together" one to a single mom with 5 adopted (biracial) children. I just felt compelled to give it to her on Valentine's Day as an "I love you" gift from God. She had just finished reading Katie's book and was blown away that God had blessed her with Katie's beads at that very time when she was yearning for a piece of Africa again (she had traveled to Kenya with Mark and Moriah 2 years ago). She said multiple times "you have no idea what this means to me" and then a mutual friend came up to me the next week and said "you have no idea what that meant to her!" I guess that was definitely a God thing!

    Thanks for being a blessing and ministering to so many with your gifts and talents....

    (And keep the baby pics coming--that one on your dad's facebook of them sleeping was SO PRECIOUS. Sharing them with us is a huge blessing as well...children are a gift from the Lord! :)

    1. Oh wow Kim, what a beautiful story! That is amazing how God wove all the circumstances together. I'm honored to have been a part in encouraging her. Wow. There are no words.
