We are the only ones in our circle of friends who never get around to making Christmas cards. My intentions are good, but the reality is that it just never happens. Never. This year, however, I am quite pleased to announce that not only will we have Christmas cards, they’re already made and ordered in mid-November!

Studio DaySpring makes ordering your cards easy. You can create your own or start with their design templates, which is what I did. I’ve been given a coupon code to share with you for 15% off your purchase with coupon code: CHILDREN15. The best part? 6% of your sale goes to Compassion International automatically! {You can read the story of our Compassion sponsored child here.}

Here is our card. Just ignore the messy spot under the picture, where I erased all of our personal info. If you get one of these in the mail, just forget you ever saw this, okay?


Did you know that (in)courage is not only an inspiring website, but has a line of handmade products, too? I love jewelry. Two of my favorite new pieces are from the Lisa Leonard line at (in)courage.

If you see me, chances are you’ll see either the “by grace alone” or “(in)courage” designs around my neck. Not only are they lovely, but a visible testimony to your faith.

posyThese pins from the Pleated Poppy line are whimsical and individually designed. Mine has been worn on clothes, but I’ve also seen them attached to purses. Hmmm, mine would actually match my camera bag nicely…

They’re an instant dress up wherever you pin them and currently on sale for 15% off at the DaySpring store, just in time for Christmas (can you believe it’s almost here?).

[These products were provided to me as an author at (in)courage, but I would love them just as much even if I’d paid for them. In the immortal words of The Eurythmics, “Would I Lie to You?” I think not.]
