More dollies!

Hi everyone! It's snowing like mad here today! I'M TIRED OF SNOW!!! I woke up this morning praying, "Lord, thank you for this day, praise your holy name. Thank you for the snow, even if I am sick of it!".
Here's a little doll I have on eBay right now. She's an Iddie Biddie, which means she's no more than 9 inches tall. I've been enjoying using the lovely words to old Hymns lately on the doll's ornies. Judie's ornie says, "His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me." Isn't that a wonderful truth?

Sharon's ornie is a very special scripture. "For we walk by faith, not by sight." 2 Cor. 5:7.
Years ago when I first started making primitive dolls and selling at Craft Fairs and online, I promised God that I would tell people about Him. I would use the dolls I made (the work of my hands) to share His love and His Word. He has truly blessed me. He has sustained me through these little, simple dolls. He NEVER FAILS!

I pray for all who read this to experience these truths for themselves. God is so Good and He loves you more than anything.

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

This little sweetheart says what I feel. She is listed on eBay right now, and she is holding a little ornie that says, "Turn your Eyes Upon Jesus", (here's the rest of the song...) Look full in His Wonderful Face, And the things of Earth will Grow Strangely Dim, In the Light of His Glory and Grace.

Gosh, that song is one of the very first praise and worship songs I learned when I first found the Lord Jesus. I was a teenager, a Hippie and very, very lost. Jesus broke through all my darkness and brought me into His light.

I hope that you are in His light today and are experiencing His love & grace.

Praise His Holy Name!

Lemonade Award

Good Morning all!
I was given an award! It's the Lemonade Award. I am honored to receive this. Debbie of Willowtree Treasures gave me this award. HOW SWEET! Thank you Debbie. She was interviewed by Linda from I Love Crafts & Craft Blogs. Take a peek, it's a great article.

I am definitely accepting this award, and will post the little graphic, but alas, nearly all of my blogging friends now have an Award Free Blog. They've all been awarded so many times that they would spend all their time and use up all their blog space to post about them. So... for now, I can't Award anyone else.

I do appreciate your kindness Debbie. Bless your sweet heart! I am truly honored.

God Bless,

GOTTA ADD THIS ONE... guess what???? Linda of Grama's Gourds and Primitives awarded me that Lemonade Award too! Such a small world. Thank you Linda!

Raggedys, Easter, and St. Patty's Day

Hello everyone! Hope your day is just LOVELY. It's sunny and nice today here in Kansas, but watch out... tomorrow it's supposed to rain,storm & snow!

Athena Bunny is such a cutie pie. They're smaller than the bunnies I have been making prior to now. I just love them.

Francesca is the same size as Athena, about 11 inches. They are so much fun to make, and each one comes with a "Make you Smile" guarantee. They always make me smile, sometimes giggle out loud!

Kirrily is a darling little redhead. The cookie cutter is a real one, shamrock shaped. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My prayers are with Australia. The Lord God keep you safe, all my Aussie friends!

Hope everyone's weekend is filled with love, laughter, and blessings.
