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

Thinking of you...

handstamped cards brown white aqua navy blue by HandiworkinGirlsFrom our custom work over the summer...

Crisp white and natural kraft brown cards make our hand-stamped card sets both versatile and classy. Stamped butterflies, dots, and flowers in a variety of styles keep our designs looking playful and unique, while simple greetings lend themselves to several occasions. The color palettes vary from subdued navy blue and tan to bright green and berry and from rich plum and chocolate brown to retro-inspired soft yellow, moss green, and aqua.

Shine on me...

Fall is here, and so are fantastic autumn-hued pieces from our CAST team mates. Today’s theme is shadow and sunshine, inspired by the lyrics of the song “The Shadow Proves the Sunshine” by Switchfoot. (And yes, "Sunshine and Shadow" is also one of our favorite quilt patterns.)

'The Shadow Proves The Sunshine' by HandiworkinGirls

Sunshine, won't you be my mother
Sunshine, come and help me sing
My heart is darker than these oceans
My heart is frozen underneath

We are crooked souls trying to stay up straight,
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sunshine

Oh Lord, why did you forsake me?
Oh Lord, don't be far away
Storm clouds gathering beside me
Please Lord, don't look the other way

Shine on me,
Let my shadows prove the sunshine

Don't look around...

Time to take the plunge back into treasury making. Our summer's break became an early fall break as well, but that is probably a good thing. We are now back with a file full of ideas. For starters, we are using Francesca Battistelli's single from this spring, "Strangely Dim," as our treasury inspiration. Pretty robin's-egg blue, olive green, and silver fit together beautifully with the lyrics of one of our favorite songs of 2013.

'Strangely Dim' by HandiworkinGirls

I've had all these plans piled up sky high
A thousand dreams on hold
And I don't know why,
I Got a front row seat
To the longest wait
And I just can't see
Past the things I pray

But when I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade
And fall to the ground
Cuz when I seek Your face
And don't look around
Any place I'm in
Grows strangely dim
