New Blog Look ~ Guest Post ~ Projects to Share

What must I do to ensure peace of mind?
Is the answer I'm seeking too hard to find?
How can I know what God wants me to be?
How can I tell what's expected of me?
Where can I go for guidance and aid
To help me correct the errors I've made?
The answer is found in doing three things
And great is the gladness that doing them brings-
Do justice, love kindness, walk humbly with God-
For with these three things as your rule and your rod,
All things worth having are yours to achieve
If you follow God's words, have faith to believe.
~ Helen Steiner Rice ~

Thanks for stopping by today my friends.  I wanted to share with you today that my sweet online friend Holly from 2911 Jeremiah Avenue Blog has asked me to be a guest on her blog today as a “Woman of Hope”.  

Each month she features someone different.  I was humbled by her request.  You can find her interview with me here:  Abby as Guest at 2911 Jeremiah Avenue

Do you like the new look of my blog?  I know I sure do.  I felt congested before in my little blog space and feel like I’ve moved from a tiny apartment to a spacious cottage by the sea.  The credit for this beautiful blog design and header goes to Susan at Starsunflower Studio. 

When I saw her work, I knew I had found what I was looking for.  Susan offers so many different templates, brushes, digital stamps, blogger backgrounds, tutorials and so much more.  Many of the items she has are free, and others are reasonably priced in her Starsunflower Studio Digital Goods Shop.  She’s a pro!!  Thank you Susan for all your hard work!  I love it.  

It makes me so happy when I see projects that others have made using images I’ve offered.  Here are a few that I’ve seen recently.

I have just started a new Pinterest Board and will be pinning projects that have been made using my free digital images.  If you have made something using my images, please send me an email with a link to your project and I will add it to the board.

You can check out the board here, I’ve already added some projects that I knew about. Projects made from my free graphics.   

You can view all my pinterest boards here Little Birdie Blessings on Pinterest

If you have a project you’ve made using scripture from the Bible, I’d love to have you consider linking it up each Thursday right here at Little Birdie Blessings.  This week’s Scripture Thursday Linky Party is still open.  You can see the previous post or click here:  Scripture Thursday.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Aww, thanks so much for mentioning me Abby! You definitely are a woman of hope and have a very strong gift of encouragement. It's so interesting how we connected right at a time when I was going through one of the most difficult phases of my life. It's awesome how God is working through you in such wonderful ways. You are a true blessing for all of us. ♥ ::hugs::
