Change for the GOOD

Dear Friends,
When we started this blog almost a year ago, we had NO idea what we were getting into or what we were doing. I convinced my "artisitic partner in crime" to join me on this journey of making our private creativity public, and so we started to post!

It was with true intentions that we hoped to post regularly and offer you great ideas. Our real purpose behind the blog was to become a community board for many of you to showcase your creativity too! Well... some, but most of that didn't happen.

While Rachel and I talk about creative things on a daily basis, we also have a deeper relationship that is grounded in Christ Jesus. Lately, our conversations have become more intentional about making sure that things in our lives are purposeful and that time spent with Him comes FIRST in our lives. We both still have little ones around the house that consume our time and blogging has just not been a priority. Mutually, we decided that keeping up with this site was becoming something that wasn't a priority, or something that was of utmost importance to us.

SO..... as of today, Rachel and I will no longer be blogging together. We ARE BREAKING UP THE BOY BAND! She is painting quite a bit, so who knows, she may suprise us with a site of her own down the road. I am still going to keep this site open for my painting projects because I have received some really good feedback from so many of you! THANKS!

If you are willing to "hang in there" with just me (Amy), come back often... not everyday! I will have some neat Christmas things to share with you this month.

CHANGE IS GOOD! Especially when it is out of obedience God... the one who gave us our gifts and abilities.

Blessings!
Amy & Rachel

Hi...just found your blog, for I am a new blogger...it does take time, but fun to share thoughts, ideas and God's love through the blog. My family is not near, so my blog helps in that way too.

Bless...Shell
