My Favorite Bible Verse Printable Etsy Shops

Happy hump day friends!!! How has your week been so far? I've got lots of exciting things coming up, getting closer to being finished up!!!

You've heard of the statement wall trend right? So many awesome ideas!!! What I'm liking the best is a variation of printables in different colors, but all with a similar pallette. I found some lovely Bible verse printables that I wanted to share with you! These shops all have more prints besides what I shared here. You can also follow some of them on IG for specials (and maybe even freebies!)

A Few Favorites: Crafty Supplies

What are some crafting supplies that you cannot live without?  You know, the ones that you always reach for when you're making that last minute gift?  Here are a few that I am always digging for in my craft supplies.
  1. Ribbon: I love ribbon.  You can use it for absolutely everything.  I even save the ribbon off of paper shopping bags.  This particular ribbon comes from the Anastasia Marie Shop on Etsy.  She is actually the older sister of a friend of mine!  If you haven't checked out her shop, I definitely recommend that you stop by.  She has such awesome crafty goodies!
  2. Fold-over Elastic (FOE): I've only made one purchase of FOE and I bought a bunch at the same time.  You know those cute little hair bands that you see at Anthro (3 for $12)?  Well, I got enough to make a dozen headbands plus a gazillion little hair bands.....for less than that.  Can't be beat, right?
  3. Clothespins: particularly those with glitter.  Because glitter makes everything better right?  Remember the autumn garland that I showed you?  Having clothespins in my crafty bins came handy with a last minute project.  But now I'm wishing I had glitter-ified them!
  4. Gift tags: Can't you see it?  You're running out the door for a birthday with your quickly-put-together gift and realize there's no tag!  Well guess what? PROBLEM. SOLVED.
  5. Decorative Embroidery Hoop: I have a bunch of little pretties all embroidered up and ready to be given as gifts.  But just when I need them the most, I realize that I don't have any embroidery hoops except for the cheap plastic ones.  It would be super handy to have a pretty one like this on hand.
  6. Baker's Twine: ahh.  This really doesn't need a description.  Everyone knows all the different things you can do with baker's twine, right?  Wrap gifts and embroidery hoops, make Christmas trees.....the options are endless.
  7. Washi Tape: I saw a giveaway a little bit ago for 72 rolls of washi.  My first thought was "What would I do with 72 rolls of washi?!?!?!?"  Haha.  My next thought?  "What WOULDN'T I do with 72 rolls of washi?"  You can literally put washi on anything.  ANYTHING.  Your phone, your keyboard, your door, cards, gifts, pictures, puppies (ok. maybe no puppies).  The sky is the limit.  (#washibombinganyone?)
  8. Thread Scissors: for all those embroidery and sewing projects.  And everything is better vintage right?

Phone Backgrounds

A little bit ago, I stumbled upon a website that publishes Bible verse graphics for free in the format of an iPhone background (Hand Lettering Co).  I quickly downloaded a few and put them on my phone (right now I have the "LOVE" graphic, but I just might rotate through a few of them).  It is such a good reminder to have Bible verses surrounding you and such a blessing to hide God's Word in your heart!!!
With that in mind, I created a few backgrounds of my own (using the Rhonna Farrer app).  Because of the size, I wasn't able to fit whole verses on the picture, but just a few short reminders.  Feel free to download them and share them as much as you want!!!
Click on the link.  You can then download the image from that site. (If you are on your phone, it should save directly to your camera roll and you can go from there.  If you are on your computer, you can then email the picture to your phone and save it.)

[The lighting on the my phone was a bit lighter, so hopefully it is the same for you.  Let me know if there are any problems!!!]

Are there any verses or phrases that you would like to be reminded of constantly?  I'd definitely be willing to try my hand at a few more!!!


Photo a Day: weeks 1-2

Well hello there!  It's me, Kelsey.  Remember me?  It's been a while;-D
Before Christmas was my last post.  I didn't wish you Merry Christmas (so here's a belated Merry Christmas) and didn't post any totally sparkly NYE ideas (sickness and busyness were running rampant).  But alas, I am back!  And pretty excited for this new year, because I've got some fun stuff lined up!  I can't wait to show you!!!!
In the meantime, today's post.  On the first day of 2014, I challenged my sister (@ladylarza) to the #fmsphotoaday challenge.  I hope to do a post every two weeks with the pictures that we've taken.  If you've got Insta, you can follow along with our hashtag #fancyladyphotoaday (my handle is @fancythatnotion).  If not, you can just follow on here!
