Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday Sale

We are beginning our sale for the "big" shopping weekend that runs from Black Friday to Small Business Saturday to Cyber Monday. (What it should officially be called is something along the lines of "best deals of the shopping year weekend," but that's not nearly as catchy.)

Items on sale will include our gift bags, denim bucket bags, doll clothes, knitted trivets, and jewelry holders, through December 3rd. Not valid on custom orders. All our sale items are 20% off, and can be seen here, or in our regular shop sections.

Daylight fades into the ground...

Listening to the family music library while working on Etsy listings can only lead to one thing - treasury inspiration. This treasury was inspired by Brandon Heath's "Red Sky" and the multitude of gorgeous sunset photos from the CAST team.

'Cover me with the red sky...' by HandiworkinGirls

There's a man on my street
He reminds me everyday
Better take what you can get
Cause there's nothing more than this
Daylight fades into the ground,
Oh Lord I need you now

Cover me with the red sky tonight
The promise of a better day to come
Sing over me an angelic symphony
Tell me everything will be alright
With the red sky tonight

Don't forget...

Watching music videos on YouTube leads to one thing every time - treasury-making compulsion! Today was no exception, and the inspiration came from Group 1 Crew's single "He Said." Not only is it a catchy title, the theme is perfect for showcasing a handful of our favorite Scripture art finds.

'What He Said...' by HandiworkinGirls

So your life feels like
It don't make sense
And you think to yourself
I'm a good person
So why do these things keep happening?
Why you gotta deal with them
You may be knocked down now, but don't forget
What He said, He said

I won't give you more
More than you can take
And I might let you bend
But I won't let you break
And no, I'll never ever let you go
And no, don't you forget what He said

Never said this before...

Deep fall shades of orange and aqua seemed like the perfect complementary combination for our latest treasury. Paired with the lyrics of Chris August's song "Want To Be Real" (perfectly suited to handmade items, don't you think?), we collected our favorite CAST finds for your viewing pleasure.

'I want to be real...' by HandiworkinGirls

I've never said this before
I've never opened that door so wide
No one else is around
There is no good reason for me to hide
And I, I want to be real

There’s too much at stake
And I’m tired of fakin’
I just want to be real
I want to be real
There’s too much at stake
I don’t care if I break
I just want to be real

Do I belong to you?

Fall colors plus Sanctus Real's "Dear Heart" can only mean one thing - treasury inspiration! While browsing the CAST team's offerings, we discovered these beautiful items in rich shades of rust, orange, red, and brown. All that is left to make the perfect fall experience to add is a cup of hot apple cider and maybe a fresh scone (or two).

'Dear heart, do you belong to me?' by HandiworkinGirls

Dear heart,
Do you belong to me
Or do I belong to you
Just look at all the trouble
You dragged me into
I've heard it said
To follow your heart
But I'm starting to wonder
If it's gone too far

Heart, you let me down
Chasing love when it can’t be found
And heart, we’ve fallen out
All of your emotions have led me to doubt
Only Jesus can save us now
