Laugh with (estatic-al) JOY!

 . .. . . . . .. . . . . ..

Oh boy, I won! 

I never seem to win anything... so imagine my surprise when sweet, creative and the very inspirational Becky, from Farmgirl Paints, let me know that I was one of the winners for her recent giveaway.  Yay!!

I was ecstatic-al. ;)  Is that a word??  In my book... yes, it is!

The three winners got to choose which Pendant or Key chain they wanted, out of her Etsy Shop.  So, I chose this one.

Love the packaging...it's fun & pretty!

What's really funny is that, recently another friend and I were talking about Proverbs 31:25, which says.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, she can laugh at the days to come. 

I so desperately need to grow in laughter.   Choosing to laugh over and within the stressful things of my life rather then to bemoan them all of the time. 

So, this will be a great daily reminder for me.  Thank you, Becky!


PS:  Oh, by the way, did y'all notice the little card with the house on it?

Those are her business cards.  Becky painted that picture!  You'll have to check out her blog where she talks more about doing custom paintings of your home, for a fair price.  It's on her sidebar.

I just love her artsy, funky & whimsical style, and she didn't ask me to say anything about it - I just thought I would.

.:*:.: *:.:*:.:*:.

Another thing I recently participated in was this ~  J * O * Y swap. 

I had so much fun, creating planning and packaging my "shoebox" for this sister swap.  Thank you, Carrie and Monica, for inspiring JOY to flow, from one heart ~ one home, to another, this season.

To Jennifer C. from VA:  In case you're reading this, your JOY box left our house yesterday.  It's on it's way....

Have a Wondrous, JOY-ous Christmas, Jennifer!

And, if that isn't all....

I had the most crazy - AMAZING - experience of having a total of 5 bags and 1 pocket pouch leave my shop yesterday.  Plus two bag orders placed...  all in one day.... you'd think it's Christmas, or something.

Once again... talk about estatic-al!!!
