Raising Up Rubies
One of my favorite blogs is Raising Up Rubies. Jaime loves the Lord and loves to make cute things. She shares how to make her adorable creations on her blog. Her craft room alone is more eye candy than I can take in at one setting. Recently Jaime opened an Etsy shop and I was ever so eager to do some shopping.
Jaime's attention to detail is fantastic. Her use of color, texture and pattern just sings to me.
Each item came individually wrapped. It felt like Christmas morning and I was a child again opening the gifts from my stocking. Do you see the ruler the tape is rolled on? Adorable!
Vintage trims rolled on to vintage spools and clothespins. I will have a hard time removing them to craft with, they are just so pretty!
I had my signature tidal wave nightmare last night. It's the one I get when life is overwhelming and I can't seem to get a handle on things. I'm going to use one of the sparkly clothespins to clip the sweet confetti clouds (made by Jaime's daughters) on to the visor of my car. This will remind me that I have an awesome God in heaven who is seated on the throne. He is more than able to manage every aspect of my life from the upcoming house selling, to relocation and to ever after. Thank you, Jaime for the reminder and for the joy a package in the mail can bring to another. Blessings today!
