Think On These Things

Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Philippians 4:8

To think is: To have the mind occupied on some subject; to have ideas, or to revolve ideas in the mind. This scripture is a great reminder of what our thoughts really are and do.

Whatever is true… thoughts that are accurate or exact. Truth.
Whatever is noble… thoughts with high moral principles and ideals. Righteousness.
Whatever is pure… thoughts free of any contamination. Clean.
Whatever is lovely… exquisitely beautiful, delightful. Jesus.

Can you imagine what our days and world would be like if we truly “thought on these things” everyday? Is it easy to let your thoughts become distracted and not think on these things? Need a reminder?

This collections is a beautiful way to help us keep our focus.

Insert Last Name

Our last name! From little on, we learn that our last name connects us to family and gives us a belonging. It proudly shows our nationality and our heritage. It tells us who we are and shows others who belongs to us! We write our last name so people know us from others and display our last name on our mailbox so people know where we live. But what about inside our homes, do you have your last name there? We all want our children feel unique and loved, and a last name does just that, so displaying your last name inside a home is powerful, and… the reason why personalization is popular.

Let’s look at a few wall hangings and insert a last name.
1. Family Rules Canvas

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 12.16.09 PM

This chalkboard look canvas comes in a wrapped canvas, or white, black, or gold frame. It not only reads the last name but declares the loving rules of the home, and shows it’s faith reminders too. Pray, forgive, love God, and others statements that provide the basis of a strong family.

2. God’s Sweet Grace Canvas

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 12.15.40 PM

 

This canvas looks like wood, and has a stamped look. It also comes in a wrapped canvas, or white, black, or gold frame. It reads the last name, and gives the establishment date, which makes this a wonderful wedding gift for the new couple! And reminds us of God’s Grace, which we need daily!

3. State of Mind Canvas

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 12.15.56 PM

 

On this canvas you can pick your state, choose your color, and add your name. It also comes in a wrapped canvas, or white, black, or gold frame. The fine print under the word mine reads: As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15. Have you lived in several states? Would be fun to make a wall collage of all the states you’ve called home!

How could you use these wall hangings in your home?

  • How about making a gallery wall of several pieces that are meaningful to your family. This picture is an example.

  • Or give a gift that is personalized! By adding a name to a gift makes it makes it meaningful, thoughtful, and one they will treasure. Years to come it will still hold their name and the loving gesture of receiving when they received it and who gave it lives on!

What item do you have in your home with your last name on it?

I get so many compliments of how I made this rustic photo display, I wanted to show you how easy it is to make with this DIY project! Look for my next blog post on the many uses this Blessings Cardholder has, especially as a photo display!

1. Purchase a Blessings Cardholder. It is on sale in July for only $22.

2. Purchase a board such as this one, and ask the store to cut it 37″. I got mine at Menards for about $4.  Also purchase some 2 1/2″ burlap ribbon. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for about $8.

3. Lay the burlap ribbon the length of the board and staple it down with 2 staples on the reverse side. Stretch it tight and staple the other end with 2 staples also, then cut to trim. Repeat this process again to cover the other half of the board. The front and back of your should look similar to these pictures.

4. Place the cardholder on top of the burlap board. The bottom has a notch that fits right around the board, and the top has a hanger to hang onto the wall (hanging hardware included with he cardholder). When the cardholder is hung onto the wall, the board will hold in place. To make pretty I added a jute bow at the top, but this is optional!

This DIY project using the Blessings Cardholder makes it look a bit more rustic and give is a vintage look.

I hope you enjoy creating it, and comment below, what are you going to hang on it?

 

Ampersand Meaning

Do you have something with ampersand on it you’d like to give as a gift?
Here’s is a little sentimental poem you can include in the card, connecting the importance of & in our lives, making it more meaningful and loving gift!

The Ampersand Meaning

The & symbol simply means, together or and,
but it has more power, than we realize it can.

It connects those decisions, we make in our life,
like who will be our spouse, husband or wife.

The people we spend time with,  friends that we make,
the things that we do, actions we take.

But there’s something it does, that’s oh so much more,
is when we include & in our life with Christ our Lord.

Your Kitchen Table

If your kitchen table is like ours, it’s where everyone gathers. It seems to be the place to not just sit and eat, but read the paper, look at your smart phone, do your homework, make a craft, and pray.  But it’s also the place to talk about each others day, organize schedules, make decisions, play games, laugh, have fun together… or cry, listen, and console each other.  The kitchen table is where some of the best conversion, stories, and memories are made. It’s an important part of a home.

Would it be nice to give a gift a that helps emphasizes your kitchen table, and all that happens in our lives around it? Something that encourages people to gather there, create those memories, live life together, and with God.

The large Lazy Susan is a gift item that does just that.  It reads: May our table be a place of plenty….a place to share….a place for love. The Lord surrounds His people both now and forevermore.

It’s a big 23″ and is made of mango wood. The detailing on it is makes it blend with a lighter oak or darker table too.
