Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:8. I just LOVE the hope and peace that this verse brings me! It is one of my favorites. As a matter of fact, I really wanted to write it on the back of these crosses that I have finally finished! I tried....really! Then, the minwax that I used as a sealer sorta smeared the words together! I was so bummed! So, I cam up with an alternative! I will simply add this scripture to the little cards that are attached to the cross!! The devil won't have his say-so today!
There is a darling man in our church who does woodwork. When I asked him about making some crosses for me, he asked a few questions and presto, beautiful pieces of work!! You should see some of his intricate ones that he simply stains. Lovely!
Anyway, I have two of these wooden crosses that are hand painted and stained and then decorated with sea glass. Sea glass is a piece of glass that has been washed over and smoothed down by the ocean and the sand and shells. Now REAL sea glass is quite costly, so I found some less expensive--at the beach--to keep my cost down! They measure 11.5 in. by 7.5 inches. I loved the twine on each end!
I plan on giving these a birthday and Christmas presents...maybe even for wedding showers! I am not sure how many I will actually be able to sell. Have to make sure that my cross maker is willing!! If you would like to order one, hop over to my etsy shop! It's Sweet 'Tater Designs (sweettaterdesigns). If I run out and you want one, please let me know! I would love to create one for you!
For those oh, so smart people who have items in their etsy shops and have them displayed on cute little buttons on their blogs...I do not know how to do that!! Please help me if you so feel the spirit move you!! I do hope the spirit moves you!
