Over the past several weeks I have teetered between burying that talent deep in the earth and working harder at the gifts God purposed me to use. Currently, the working harder side is winning out.
Which brings me to the point of this post...my solution to my struggle with obviously wanting to sell the items I made but hating to contribute to the culture of spending around this time of year. So here it goes...
Even better, DON'T BUY an item from my shop and instead gift an amount equivalent to your favorite item to World Vision on behalf of the person you're shopping for. If you do this, come back here and tell me about it and I will send you a note card created by me for you to print out and give to the person you shopped for and let them know about your donation. I'll be working on the design of the card this week and will share when it's completed, but here's a peek at the picture I did for one of the designs:
my shop to someone you love, consider making a donation to World Vision for the same amount as the item you purchased, come back and tell me about it and I'll include the donation note card along with your item.
This may be crazy, it may miss the mark completely, but I hope it may lead to our being able to help lift a woman out of poverty.
