New Plates, New Techniques!!!

Untitled LoveUntitled Love 2

Due to Shielding the identities of my friends, I’ve blanked out the names, as well as the picture. But this is a plate I made for a friends wedding. All of it is hand painted, apart from the neutral colored background and the picture of the couple. Want something crafted especially for you or someone you know? Let me know! 🙂

‘The Chain of Love’

Chain Mail doesn’t work. I know that for sure. The only chain similar to that, that does work, is the Chain of Love. So let’s drop the emails, texts, messages….all chain mail, and start something beautiful. Help someone, with anything, don’t expect anything in return, just continue the chain. Even if its something small. It helps. I know for a fact.
“You don’t owe me a thing, I been there too. When someone Once helped me out, just the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here’s what you do; don’t let the Chain of Love, End with you.” – Clay Walker

Do you have a story to go with this? I’d love to hear about it. I know a lot of things have happened to me that’s worth passing along. Could you imagine if everyone was touched by this chain? The reaction would be beautiful. Can’t wait to continue helping people! ❤

Teach Me, Lord ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

christian-poetry-by-deborahann-open-the-eyes-of-my-heart-ibible-verses

Teach me Lord to be calm,
when fear comes around
let me learn to stand firm
not on shaky, rocky ground.

Teach me to believe,
to trust when I’m troubled
let me have a single mind
not one bent and doubled.

Teach me to know,
my times are in Your hands
let me see lush green valleys
not the shaky, faulty lands.

Teach me to understand,
the reasons for my trials
let my faith in You . . .
be not full of denials.

Teach me to love You,
with eyes open wide
so that into my heart
You’ll come to reside!

Ephesians 3:17

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted and grounded in love”

Bonjour! (A Check up From Fall ‘N Love)

Bonjour Everyone! And a big, happy hello from Fall’N Love Crafts! Just a quick check up on my decorative plates: No longer do I use Etsy.com to sell my plates. In case any of you are interested, you’ll have to contact me here, on Facebook, or by email. And if you have something special in mind, I’d be happy to make it for you! I’ve recently done some decorative plates for a local wedding, and I failed to remember to take pictures, but business has been slow….Unlike anything else in this hectic universe! Between my education, work, and any other everyday chaos, my life is in full swing! But thankfully I have a wonderful host of friends and family to keep me on my feet. They may be few, but they are greatly appreciated. I am thankful everyday. ❤ And thank you everyone on WordPress. And for anyone out there that needs a helping hand in any way, I’m here. I may not know you yet, but I’m willing to give a helping hand and a prayer to boot. All I have in this heart is Love, and I’m willing to share with ya’ll!!! And remember, no matter what it takes, Fall’N Love!!!

Beautiful…

Ok, so I’m not a professional photographer, for sure, but this rose is a simple hello from me to you. Its beautiful, yes? My boyfriend gave it to me. And not only is it beautiful, but this rose reminds me of all the beauty packed within us. And I just wanted to mirror that beauty to all of you. Because sometimes, its hard to see the beauty within people, when we’re so focused on an outside appearance. Its hard sometimes…but today, I want you to look at yourself in the mirror, and look deeper than just your skin, eyes, and hair. I don’t care if you’re a model or as insecure about yourself as I am, You Are Beautiful. Inside and Out. And as a side note, if you’re feeling extremely insecure about how you look today, I want you to look in the mirror for a while. And this time, try to criticize yourself as much as possible. Even if it brings tears. After you’ve got that done, take another look. But this time, imagine that it’s not your face in the mirror, but another person. Truly believe this. And try to criticize this person standing before you. Imagine trying to point out all those ‘hidious flaws’ you see on yourself, on another person. Is it harder? Please let me know if you see someone different next time you look in the mirror. And if not, just remember that you are beautiful. Maybe not to yourself, but to someone else. I promise. God bless! And happy Sunday ya’ll!   image
