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

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

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!
