Craft Hope

You know that place where your gifting intersects with a need? That place where joy and excitement surge at the thought of how you can serve? That's how I felt looking at this website.
Sign me up for the next project. I'm so there!

a challenge and a change

Challenges have been coming my way fast-and-furious style lately. So, I've been doing some thinking. Thinking and praying and reading and writing. Lots of relationship issues, but also some deep personal imbalances that I'd like to overcome. I've been reading Captivating by Stasi and John Eldredge. It's brought up many fascinating and undiscovered aspects of my role as a woman and has given me courage as a single woman to step into the life that God has called me to. Although there are criticisms and many items can be taken out of context, the book, as a whole, is a beautiful view of downplayed aspect of Christianity--how God reveals Himself through His creation.
I also came across this blog post at
It really made me stop and give some serious thought to my disgusting apathy and self-centerness in recent years. Apparently, Russian journalists think that apathy is a more widespread problem that just with me. My question is--what now would God have me do with this knowledge?

Quick update; latest craft!

Really, I'm still around. I've just been busy. Here's one of my latest projects...a Gratitude Wrap from SouleMama. I really like her stuff & her book just came in the mail. I can't wait to sink my teeth into it.
This was for an 8 year old girl's birthday. She seemed to really like it because she immediately went and wrote me a thank you note and put a fairy sticker on it. :-)
Pink and Green--such a happy color combo! I did this patchwork style because I didn't have any fabric large enough.
