Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails.
I will believe the Hand which never fails,
From seeming evil, worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered:
I trust in Thee.
--Ann Kimmel

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labor of the olive shall fail and the fields shall yield no meat, the flock shall be cut off from the fold and there shall be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17-18

A Family Affair




This is how running an Etsy shop can affect family dynamics.

No one is immune from being pressed into service as a model.


My youngest kid is my favorite subject because, like his mom, he revels in absurdity.

And this groovy old chick puts in an appearance now and then. Not often, though, because a certain someone cannot seem to figure out how to take a decent photograph.

Some years back, I came across a blog post entitled The Men of Etsy, sharing various photographs of guys modeling for the Etsy shops of their significant others. It was quite entertaining. I may have to revisit this subject for myself.

Meanwhile, keep on shopping!
