shamrocks and a rainbow

pitching these ideas for a book, but no luck this time... maybe you'll see these somewhere else, but for now... I'll show you here!

Shamrock Topiary
I used more sturdy, green felt and cut out MANY hearts with a heart punch. Then, I used green pins to put the hearts together into a shamrock and to make the topiary! tfl!

Rainbow purse.
got this purse from target dollar spot a while ago. lots of ribbon, some white felt, flocking, buttons. tfl!

know... God is Real. Jesus is Gods Son. God loves us!
Alexander really soaked up a lot this week... he learned new songs, he talks about missions a lot now! sooo cool! he's been singing "Teach me what is right, oh, God, and I will do it!" and "I've got good news for you!" too sweet!
