Counting Our Blessings - Linkup

It's been a wonderful week of warmer weather. I'm welcoming Spring with open arms! I have actually spent some time on my deck, soaking up the sun, feeling the warm breeze on my face and praying to God as I enjoy His creation.

I've been working on a Lent study using this book

and creating an art journal with Scripture, stickers and die cuts. I love this little journal and how personal it feels. It focuses on Jesus and the promises of God.

I added a tip in to this page and here it is with it on top of the page

I created this little book using the journal and printable stickers from the Etsy shop, Praise and Pray. She's having a 30% sale right now as it's her 3rd anniversary on Etsy, so if you're interested in her things,, this is a good time to get some of her beautiful printables. The link to her shop is HERE.

I bound the journal myself using my binding machine but you could use a disc binding system (like for the Happy Planner) or even take it to an office supply store and let them bind it. The book and doing the journal with it, has been just wonderful.

I've also been stitching a lot and have an update on my Desert Santa. Here's the kit for him

and here's what I have stitched at this point

I usually don't do my beading until the end, but I just had to add my beads to the little donkey and see what he was going to look like finished. I'm absolutely loving this kit!

I also purchase something special and fun from 123 stitch. I have had my name in for an email notification to get the beautiful Mouline Special Etoile threads. I finally got my email and ordered them right away.

These threads are amazing with a touch of glittery type thread running through it. I have seen so many people adding them to their projects for a pop. I'm definitely going to try it on my Queen Elizabeth project I'm working on.

It's hard to see the shimmery threads running through, but they are there and gorgeous!

Share your own blessings on the linky below! Share something that blessed you this week, something you made, a recipe, or anything that blessed you and would bless others.

Blessings - Julie
