A Little of this and a Little of That

I'm honored and happy to be the featured artist this week at Papercraft Memories.   Karen has a delightful blog where she creates digital WORDart from scriptures and offers them free.  I was delighted when I discovered her scripture art which perfectly complimented my vintage images and photography.  I'd love to have you stop by her blog and say hello, where today she's featuring some of the things I've made using her WORDart.   Featured Artist Abby ~ Little Birdie Blessings
Below is a digital scrapbook page I made using some of Karen's WORDart.  This is free to you for personal use or sharing.

Here are a few vintage postcards I scanned yesterday, fresh from my pile of vintage goodies.  Hope you enjoy them.

I wanted to introduce you to three facebook pages that I started recently.  I've always had a heart for encouraging women, moms of little ones, and tweens - teenage girls.  These facebook pages are an outreach to that community.  My only motive is to make someone's day brighter, to offer encouragement, or a helpful tip or devotion I found, or a good idea.   Here are the links below.  Please "like" if you have any interest in them.

Little Birdie Blessings ~ Quotes, scripture, links to other devotions, encouraging and helpful thoughts, vintage images, photography, scripture graphics.

Little Birdie Blessings for Moms ~ Humor, devotion, graphics, helpful ideas, encouragement and so much more.  Geared for mothers, but all welcome ~ grandmothers, caregivers, aunts, people who work with children.

And... Graceful Guidance for Girls ~ based on 1 Timothy 4:12.  A place for tweens, teens and young women to gather encouragement and know that God loves them, that they are special.  I welcome anyone to join - moms, grandmothers, women who work with teen girls or anyone that would find this page useful.  Thank you.

The other day, I discovered that Proverbs 31 ministries had used on of my scripture graphics on their facebook page.  Having over 180,000 people following their page, you can imagine that this got a little bit of attention.  My scripture graphic (shown below) was "shared" over 1600 times, and most likely branched out from there.  When I made it, I had no idea how far reaching it would go, but God did.

Thank you all for visiting, I appreciate each and everyone of you, and your comments and emails.  They are all read and each one of them appreciated.
