Bring on Fall

Hello friends!

Fall has finally arrived in Tennessee.  Today was so cool I had to cozy up in a sweater and that exciting for me.  The leaves on the trees are turning shades of red, yellow, and copper. We don't live in the Eastern part of TN where the mountains display the trees in grandeur but our Western part is still beautiful nonetheless.

As the temperatures drop, I am even more inspired to knit. The shop has a few colors leaving because I am sold out so that means new ones will be showing up!

Here is one I am excited to show you.

It is called Truffle Shuffle. I am thinking the word 'rejoice' for this cuff. What do you think?

I have to say you guys design the best bracelets.  Some of my best sellers are the ones You designed. I am grateful for each of you helping me in this creative journey.  hAndmade knits by trAcy would not be what it is if I did not have faithful friends like you returning to the shop and encouraging me.  I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The other things happening around here is that I have started a new bible study. It is called the Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer.  If you read last months post  where I read her book Fervent , then you know how powerful a message it is.  I highly recommend one or both books.  I know the power of prayer works and am excited to dig deeper into God's Word about it.

Will you be joining me in bible study? Or have you already done it? Please share with me.

Just for my blog readers you can receive 10% off your order in the SHOP

Talk Soon Friends!

Mid Week Refreshment

Hello Everyone!

This week I was lead to read through Psalm 23. This chapter has 6 powerful verses of comfort and refreshment.  I have never been a early morning riser but this week God nudged me to get up at 5:30am.  Yes I said 5:30 AM.  LOL!  Now this is something that isn't easy for me but I knew this was something I need to do in obedience to His calling.  You see the last few weeks I know I have been doing everything in my own strength and letting things such as work control my thoughts and leaving me feel exhausted.  You know the feeling right?

So Sunday night, I knew Psalm 23 would be a perfect way to restore my weary soul by reading through this chapter taking the next 6 days to focus on each verse and writing out the scripture.
God's word really sticks when you read, read and read it again plus writing it down.
So if you want to follow along each day I am recording Live Audio over on my Facebook Page where I keep you updated better of what is happening at Handmade knits by tracy 

Today is day 3 and I already can see walking in obedience to His Word has given me joy and a revived feeling.  May we as women not grow apathetic to the Word of God and forget how it truly satisfies our thirsty souls. 
I would love for you to share what book of the Bible you are reading through and what God is teaching you. If you are reading along with me please share with me what God is teaching you.

Bless you friends

New Things Coming

Hello Friends!

It has been too long since I have posted what's new around here.  I thought I would let you all know what's been happening.  First, I have been working on new photos with photographers and a New Website in addition to my Etsy Shop.

There is always more to improve on the site and it seems to be a work in progress.  I am new to all the techy stuff but I figured it out!  I am still trying to improve in business and creating encouraging accessories for you is still my passion.

Fall is upon us and everyone seems to love the new Fall colors I have in the shop.
Here is look at just a few favorites.

Faith over Fear cuff shown in "Green Leaf Hut " 

Keep in  mind all my cuff colors are limited so when they sell out I can not get them again (most of the time)

If you follow me on Facebook you can find more encouragement and video updates of what I am reading. Right now I am reading the book Fervent  by Priscilla Shirer.  I shared my initial thoughts on it there if you want to see and tell your thoughts on the book if you have already read it.
Are you praying strategically in your life too?  Or have any tips for a fellow praying mom:)

I hope you guys have a great Labor Day holiday weekend! I will be celebrating my birthday so I am sharing a 15% off coupon with my followers so if you are reading this you get to use it! The code is MYBIGDAY use this at checkout in either shop. Offer is only good until 9/4 midnight CST.

Rainy Days

Hello friends!

I have been enjoying the Fall weather here in Tennessee. The trees have finally started to turn beautiful shades of orange, red, and gold.  I can turn off the air conditioning and raise a few windows which I love to do.   The football season so far for the TN Vols has been a little crazy for us fans but we still are hanging in and are hopeful. 

News in the Shop

The holiday season is coming soon and I am gearing up for it.  Lots of new things already in the shop and I am organizing for upcoming holiday shows. 

The rusty ornaments are in the shop now and you can choose from a heart, cross, or a star. They all can be customized with words and can be silver or rust finish. You decide:) 
I love them and think they will make great gifts this Christmas!

Fall is Coming!

Are you ready for Fall?  I know I am. I am loving the cooler days and nights.  Fall also means it is football time in Tennessee and the orange is out on Saturdays.  So whichever team you root for on the weekends, you probably enjoy Fall.  Fall also means pumpkin spice lattes, yellow leaves falling and who doesn't need a cuff to wear with those jeans!

Shop News:

I have thought about bringing  back a few scarfs in the shop but I am not sure if that is going to be my focus going forward this season.  I really love the cuffs and want you guys to love them too.  Tell me what you would like to see as far as colors.  I am thinking about multiple color cuffs (pinks,reds, and greens)   Feel free to give me suggestions.  I am considering the 2 inch cuff not as popular as well. It
seems to me the majority of ya'll like the 1.5 inch wide better.  These are just a few ideas I am throwing around in the business. 
Thanks friends for supporting my shop and sharing your cuffs with others.  I am looking for a few Brand Reps to advertise for the shop on Instagram so if you can make great stylish photos and can show my cuffs in the Best possible way, send me an email at tracypatterson72@yahoo.com 
or got to the Shop HERE

Have a Blessed day friends!
