Inspirational Gift idea - for a great Cause!

Nitasjoy is an Etsy shop for my youth group - J-Club.  They are a great group of tween & teen girls that do Beautiful Beading!

They have been making beautiful Anglican/Episcopal prayer beads for over a year now.  These are protestant prayer beads, (Great for any denomination really) made up of "four weeks" rather than the traditional Catholic rosary which has "five decades,"  So they are much shorter, but they can be made to wear over the head.

They also make Prayer "Chaplets" which is one week - Unlike a "one decade" rosary that is usually worn as a bracelet, a "one week" Chaplet can be worn around 1 or 2 fingers and held in the palm of your hand. The kids also make Catholic rosaries upon request.

These make great Christmas gifts for that "hard to buy for" person on your list - great Stocking Stuffers - great gift of encouragement for someone who is going through a difficult time - great gift of Baptism for the young as well as the adult - great for a wedding - or the birth of a child.......

They have many listed in their shop "Nitasjoy" but here are a few of my favorites!  Visit them today!

HOPE - give the gift of hope to someone...

I am very excited to share my new Inspirational Doll, “Hope.”

What does “Hope” mean to you?

Emily Dickinson said, "HOPE is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all"

The Bible says, Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."

To some HOPE is simply believing that there is something better out there for their lives: to find that new job, fix a relationship, find that perfect house, recover from a loss, heal from a hurt, find that perfect mate, find comfort from desperation…

For me it’s knowing that I will overcome my health issues and live a normal life again. Some days my HOPE is as big as the Sun is bright. Other days it’s difficult to find.

I created this doll for those days when my HOPE seems far away. She is a TANGIBLE reminder for me of a SUPERNATURAL expression that I BELIEVE things WILL be better. She also reminds me that I am loved and that people are praying for me.

Do you know someone who is holding onto their HOPE? Someone who needs to be reminded that they are loved? She is the perfect gift.

Look to this doll and know that people love you, people are praying for you, and there is something much better in store for you.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, 'declares the LORD,' plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a future."

More Christmas Ornaments!

Here are some more photos of my little Christmas Sweater ornaments.  Someone left a comment asking how big they are, so some photos have a ruler in them to give you an idea of the size.

I also have little Stocking ornaments with presents in them, and decorated Wreaths.  I'll post some pictures of those before the end of the week.

Hopefully I'll begin to list them on Etsy by Friday-Saturday.  My grandmother is ill, so things are a little hectic.  They will be listed for $5.00 each, with some sets listed with a price break for multiples.
