Anyway, I found some wonderful vintage twine on etsy and have been happily stringing lots of garlands with little squares that I've been sewing with vintage fabric. I asked my Aunt Kathy (who lives in CA) if she'd like to draw the card. She is an amazing artist, and I knew she would come up with something just beautiful! I received the cards yesterday in the mail, and I love them! They're exactly what I was envisioning! And the neat part too is that whoever buys the garland will also get a wonderful scripture card to frame or put on their refrigerator or whatever. :)
I've got about five made so far, but I want to make about 20 total for Harvest Fest. I've got some really cute ideas in my brain for the others. I bought some cute autumn leaf fabric last night and I'm going to pair it with burlap for a fall garland. And I also have some adorable schoolhouse/ABC fabric that I'm gonna use to make a school themed garland. I thought that homeschooling moms might like to have one to put in their schoolroom. And the best part of all in these little garlands is that they can be a constant reminder of GRACE. And also how important it is to seek the wisdom of God in your life. I've been praying as I sew them up that they would be a tangible reminder of just that.
