Bible Journaling

I thought I would share this morning about bible journaling. I first started last year during my quiet time. While reading my bible, maybe a verse or a truth stood out to me and I would draw or write it out in my journal. 
Of course, I should say I love journals and always have one handy to write notes in so you will need to start by choosing a fabulous one that suits you. There are many to choose from and I started with a Tuesday Morning find with a verse I hold close to me. 

I also write out my prayers inside as well. I find that writing out scripture and my prayers helps me not to be so rushed in praying. I stay focused because I don't know about you but I am scatter brained sometimes. The busy life makes me that way and I need to slow down most of the time. This quiet time helps center me and I have fun with it by journaling. Jesus is my friend and giving Him time is exactly what He wants from us. 
He shows me what this life is about and today Jesus isn't just first in my life, He is my life! 
'He is the image of the invisible God, firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities all things were created by him and for him.' Colossians 1:15-17 NIV 

Have a great Saturday friends!

Hello Tuesday

Hi Friends!

I had a great time yesterday with family. The rain here has been forever long and making the days seem very long.  I should not complain because those gardens are very happy!

Knitting wise not much happening. I closed the shop this morning after running a week long 20% off sale.  I haven't sold very much online but I am hopeful with more of an online presence hAndmAde kNits by trAcy will flourish.  I have ideas and will be working hard on some new cuff designs. That makes me excited and I think you will like them too.

I will reopen the Shop soon. I am hoping by July if not sooner.

Have a great week:-)

Happy Memorial Weekend

The past few months have been filled with inspiration and creating new items for my Etsy shop.
I have not been consistent in blogging but today is the first day of starting something new! 

I want to get to know more makers and knitters so why not start by letting you know about me.
I am a knitter, spinner, and this year I learned to crochet.  I am always wanting to learn something new so I am sure I will keep adding to the list of skills. Ha! 

Here is one of the recent cuff designs I came up with but creating these are evolving everyday. Tweaking the construction and design are being done daily.  I am happy with them and believe they are pretty unique because most cuffs are leather or a sewn fabric. These are knitted cuffs and then I add a custom blank.  If you want to see all the designs in my shop?
You can visit HERE

I also can create a cuff with your own message or word on your choice of blank. Just pick one and message me. Here are the choices...
I hope you will leave comments about what you think about these cuffs and keep me accountable to blog about the happenings around here. I hope you have a Happy Memorial Day🇺🇸
