Well we have survived whatever stomach bug is sweeping the nation - all four of us got it, but Erik definitely had it the worst. And, being the generous people we are, we decided to share it with my brother and sis-in-law last week when they were visiting from Oklahoma.
Now that things have returned to normal, I'm hoping to do a much better job of updating the blog.
And the first thing I need to post about is an amazing deal being offered by Rebecca at Better Life Bags! If you've followed the blog for even a short amount of time, you know who Rebecca is. She makes beautiful bags, has donated some to my shop (they're there now - check them out!) and is a huge cheerleader for Radical Crafts.
So when she emailed me a couple of weeks ago and said she wanted to offer her customers a discount for supporting Radical Crafts, I was so humbled and encouraged. The truth is that I've been a little discouraged about things with the shop - I had contacted some people about donating things and not heard back and just felt like I was on my own. Which is ridiculous and just reveals (once again) how horribly prideful I am.
Because it's not my shop. It's not for me to be proud.
So He can do whatever He wants with it, and I'm learning that if I would just pray and give it up to Him, that I will experience the freedom of knowing that it's not about me and will just be used for His glory.
So the deal is:
Rebecca will offer a 10% discount on one of her bags for each item donated to or purchased from the Radical Crafts shop (up to 5 items for a 50% discount!).
People, this is really amazing. She is totally sacrificing for this, and I'm just floored that she wants to do it.
So please - check out her Etsy shop. She just got some gorgeous new fabrics in, and all her bags are fully customizable.
