I have so very much to be thankful for this year!! God is good and has been so good to me! This week, though, I was torn between preparing food and getting ready for my first craft show! Strong Roots Handmade will be at the Fleur de Lis Craft Show in Natchitoches, LA this Saturday. I started making jewelry a few years ago and it has morphed into wind chimes, bookmarks, sun catchers, etc. . . When I had to go to part time in my “real” job I began to wonder if I could make some extra money by selling my work. I guess we’ll find out Saturday! When this idea came to me I began to pray earnestly for God’s will and direction. I knew I wanted this venture to glorify and honor Him, so I enlisted my sister and friends to help me think of a name. I, also, knew from the very beginning what I wanted the logo to look like – weird how that works! I believe my sister, Debbie, was the one that found the scripture that now serves as the border for my logo. “Strong Roots” . . . that’s what I want for my life and my family’s lives. Strong, deeply planted roots that are drowning in the hope and confidence of the Lord.
Since I am a newbie to this business I’m sure I will make plenty of mistakes. I have read so much about starting an online business that my head just might explode! But – I will do the best I possibly can and continue to learn along the way. I hope you will watch my site and my Facebook to keep up with new additions once things are up and running. If you have any questions or comments, please email me at email@example.com. I also ask for your patience as I get everything set up. Don’t give up on me! 🙂 Hope to see or hear from you soon!!
