Attention Hoarders. . .

I have some exciting news for all you paper craft hoarders out there! On the 5th of every month,  beginning TODAY a fantastic group of hoarding crafters will be participating in an inspirational Monthly Blog Hop!

We will share projects with you, show you how we are using up our hoarded supplies, and encourage you to dig into your own stash! Our goal is to inspire you to USE IT UP!

Each month, you will start at Gloria Stengel's Blog and hop through 20 amazing blogs. The participating crafters will share projects in all styles and media types, using both old and new product! Some designers will share tutorials; some will share storage solutions; some will share how to use your scraps and leftovers; some will share videos. There is a wealth of experience and creativity among these crafters! Many of the designers are on popular manufacturing teams and a few are part of exceptional challenge blogs. I hope you will take the monthly journey with us, and DE-HOARD your supplies!

  Welcome to September!

 Welcome to the September Craft Hoarders Anonymous Hop! You should be coming to my blog from Kathy Clement. After visiting me, hop over to Barbara Rankin next! To start at the beginning of the hop, and for the full list of Bloggers, go to Gloria's Blog or the Craft Hoarder's Blog. 

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, who, if his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone; or if he shall ask for a fish, will give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Matthew 7:11

I made this card for my dear father for his birthday and I dug so deeply into my stash that I can't even remember where everything is from. . .The main image panel is from Crafty Secrets' Childhood Images and Journal Notes. In case you can't see it clearly, the sentiment reads:
 "A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty."  

Some of you know that just over three years ago, we relocated to be near my parents. I am so thankful to my husband for uprooting and replanting me in a new place (a place within walking distance of my parent's home) and to the Lord for the goodness and mercies He daily shows in his watchcare and provision; His good gifts! What a blessing it has been!

Thank you for stopping by. . .and now off to Barbara Rankin!

Blessings! jme ~ SDG
