2nd Helping of Handmade Goodness

Here is the second scoop of handmade goodness I promised you.
With sprinkles on top :) 

1.  Something I made for others.
These little hats and gloves for my girls.
Super easy.  Super  cheap.  Super fun designing them to match their unique personalities.

Lydia is into cameos {see here}

 Lauren is my bling girl.  She's into anything sparkly..
(i didn't make these gloves though...dirt cheap $2 specials)

And my  Elizabeth, the busy mother of 3 and  probably why I didn't get a pic of her, is my more classic with a touch of funky girl. 



2. Something that was made for me.
This is a dishtowel my sis in law made for me that I absolutely adore!  Ain't it just precious?!  I could just eat the little yellow pom poms :) Thanks Heather. You did good girl :)

3. Something handmade that I bought for others.
I love sentimental keepsake stuff. And when I saw these vintage baby spoons on easy. 
I knew I had to get them for my grandchildren.  






These were made by Jessica of jessica n designs who I have had the pleasure of ordering several things from.  She is so pleasant to work with when ordering custom pieces and ALL of her work is lovely.  I even won some super cool spoon ornaments from another bloggers giveaway.  I adore them!  Go check out her shop.  She has jewelry too....I'm  thinking Valentines Day...hmmmm...



And while we are talking Valentine's Day...I have to share another lady with a shop that I have grown to love and appreciate so much....Lora and her beautiful shop, Eager Hands.

I have had the pleasure of not only buying her lovely jewelry but also getting to know her,  and her heart has made me love the pieces she creates even more.
She prays over each piece while she makes them and 
each one has a scriptural meaning behind the inspiration.
This is the one I bought for my daughter.
It's to remind Elizabeth of how much she is loved by us, her family.  But even more so by her Savior.  
One of her favorite verses is Psalm 63:3
"Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You."
My hope is that whatever a day may bring in her often hectic life, that perhaps she will catch a glimpse of this around her neck and be reminded of just that..... that His love for her is greater than all the goodness in her life and His love is greater than anything bad that may happen. And regardless of which one she may be experiencing  at the time...to praise Him. 

I may need to have Lora make me one too as a reminder.


Hope y'all are having a Wonderful Wednesday.
Stephanie :)
ps.  there is more handmade goodness coming soon. Mmmm  mmmm good!
