I have been working! Please pray!

So everything has been crazy around the Black house! Since camp, we have gone to Savannah for the weekend, done a baby shower, decor will be posted later...had a parental visit, gone to see a friend in Macon, been helping to plan two weddings...and trying to start a business on etsy, while also trying to clean out Tupperware by selling whats left on Ebay...and that has been aggravating! :(

Anywho, I'll try to catch up with posting pics soon. I delved into glass etching with great results so far. I did some very cute duck stand ups for the shower and I am dying to show you. You also need to see our pillow case dresses and what we call "UnderCover Mother Wraps" which are for breastfeeding privacy. You'll love them!

Pray for my cousin Mandy's son Kaden. He fell into some ashes that had been burning the night before, and burned his hands and feet. He is in the burn center in Chapel Hill, NC. He made good progress on his feet though the night, now just praying for his hands.

Also pray for some friends, the Kilstroms. They were in a head on collision last night in Charleston while on vacation. The father, Tor had a pin put in his leg today, he broke his femur, thumb, I believe collarbone/ribs, and had lacerations. Hope, his wife had knee replacement today and elbow surgery. I am not sure what else. She is the pianist at the church I grew up in, so I am also praying for a speedy recovery for her arm so she can return to her ministry. Tor is the headmaster at the Christian school, due to start back in September. They have four children. Emma Claire and Noah the eldest have broken collar bones but are doing well. Cherith is two years old and in ICU in a drug induced coma. She has a skull injury and a lacerated liver among other things. We are praying for a full recoery. She is currently on a ventilator but doing better than last night. I feel for Hope as a mother not being near her baby! Gideon is a few months old, but so far has had no found injuries. Please lift this dear family up in prayer. We are thankful that they are safe, but they have a long road ahead!

Busy, busy...

So I've been super busy, a trip to NC to see my mom and go to an old friends wedding and a yard sale to boot. Then we took our teens at church to camp in the mtns of NC. I've been busy making things for my mother in law and my new business, Black Oak Designs, check out our etsy shoppe, I have also been a listing fool on ebay trying to clear out some tupperware I've been storing for a while. The good news is, the auctions are almost over, and after I get all this unpacking from camp done, I should have time for some new cards and challenges. :)
