A Giveaway! {A Handmade Quiet Time Set}


It is giveaway day at "Sew, Mama, Sew"! "Sew, Mama, Sew!" is a neat site that has lots of fun ideas. They are also great at spotlighting blogs that have the neatest sewing projects. It is a very fun place to visit. Anyway.... I thought it would be fun to join in on the giveaway fun and offer a giveaway here at my blog. If you are visiting for the first time thanks to "Sew, Mama, Sew!" Welcome! If you are here because you visit my blog regularly than I hope you know you are always very welcome too!
I have been loving all the flowers that are now blooming around here! (Like the apple blossoms that I took a picture of today at the church building.) Spring is really here! Because I am enjoying the flowers so much they are showing up in my crafting as well. I have made a couple of floral inspired sets lately and I am going to give one away here today. I hope you like it!

My Giveaway is a Quiet Time Set. I love having my quiet time alone with God every morning and I want to encourage all of you to grow in your relationship with God as well. So I made this set with that in mind.

The set includes:
  • A notebook- it is simply a regular notebook that I decorated the front cover of. I like to use a notebook to journal my prayers in. It helps me to stay focused and it is fun to look back and see how God answers prayer.
  • 12 floral cards to write your memory verses on. Memorizing is such a wonderful way to keep God's word with you and helping you throughout the day!
  • A bookmark. Made with beads and ribbon and it will look so pretty marking your place in your Bible.
  • A Bag to keep everything in.

    The Bible is not included - I hope you have one of your own- If you don't I really recommend getting one!
Obviously you could use all these items for things other than a quiet time but that is what I had in mind when I made them. I hope they are a blessing to whomever wins them!

Definately lilacs are my favorite. I love their smell and the abundance of them on a bush. I like that they grow wild as well as cultivated. Thank you for hosting this give away.

What a great idea for a giveaway! I certainly could use something nice to help remind me to slow down in my quiet time.

My favorite flower....tough one. Dogwood blossom, Indian blanket, and Bluebonnet I can't seem to pick one over the others.

MamaPPod said...

so it's not really a flower, but my favorite this spring has been the redbud trees, because they remind me of my mom, who died last summer. seems like i have seen them more this spring than any other.

love this giveaway idea. i think i need to make these for all of my girls!
