This is my mom’s latest creation! I think she did an amazing job on this beautiful walking stick! It has such a classic, antique look to it and the colors are so rich! This walking stick is in my Dad’s Etsy shop, since he’s more on the walking stick end of things. ;) You can check it out for further details Here: http://stinnettstudio.etsy.com.

Here’s my other latest necklace! This fancy snail was a little bit harder to make with all of his designs. I almost wish that I could keep all of my necklaces, but I would rather sell them. ;)

a woman that fears the Lord 3 blog copy

Pro 31:30  Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

This is a card I made for one of my friend’s birthday. I hope she’ll like it and that it looks enough like her; I’m having to go by memory. :)

New Year, New Hand Carved Necklaces! 2016

Standard

 

Here are my latest necklaces! I really enjoyed making these whimsical pieces.  In order to create their rustic, antiqued look, I had my dad wire brush them for me. I really like how the wood grain pops out. I then painted them and put a clear finish. I recently bought some beautiful glass beads on sale and was able to add them to some of my necklaces. The winter light doesn’t seem to be doing my pendants justice. The purple is much more vivid in real life on my butterfly. but oh well… ;)

These Necklaces can be found in our Etsy shop at: Cottage Made Gifts

Happy New Year! 2015 Year in Review

Standard

Happy New Year! This is my year in review for 2015.

This year was very busy and full of new experiences both good and bad. This summer, Me and my family evacuated for the first time from our house, because of the wild fires that swept through our community; destroying many of our distant neighbors houses. We are very thankful that when we returned, our house was spared and our neighborhood was kept safe. Through different challenges that we faced this year, God was there through it all and keeps strengthening our faith every day. We just continue to turn and put our trust in Jesus. God has blessed us with the different tools and abilities to start our little shop on Etsy.com, and are having a lot of fun creating new things to put in it.

My New Year’s Resolution is to have a closer relationship with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; following his will for my life and obeying his commands. And like everyone else, I want to lose the weight that I have put on during the Holidays!

I’m hoping that as we continue to make handmade things that we can eventually sell enough to make a living. I also hope to keep my illustration blog going and perhaps illustrate people’s stories, blog banners, etc… My other dream is to make graphic novels and finish illustrating my own story.

Thank you all for your encouraging support and sticking with me these years of blogging!

Wishing for a blessed New Year!

Heather
