First I just want to thank everyone for all your ideas on naming my newest design. I honestly had no clue and wow you all just had some wonderful suggestions. I don't know if it was harder to think of a name on my own or to choose from all the great ones you thought of. Oh the dilemmas, LOL. Anyway the window door theme seemed to be the most popular and the one that just clicked when I saw it, you know the AHA moment, was "Windows of my Soul" There were a few variations of that idea, and I thought I'd slightly adjust it to "Windows of Heaven" to go with the scripture...
Mal 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that [there shall] not [be room] enough [to receive it].
God has truly blessed me with great friends and family, and His blessings never stop. Even when life is hard and things aren't going as I think they should, still He blesses me. This dishcloth will be a constant reminder to me of that.
Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and started up the ESTY shop. Shelly and I are partners, and we are really excited about getting this up and running. We are starting out slow but hope to build it up soon. I added a few things yesterday and she will be adding some more this week as well. And this is where I will put any patterns I am selling. My other pattern blog will still have free patterns available and more free stuff added there as well too. So if you are interested in the pattern for "Windows of Heaven" or for "Sprinkled Lace" they are both there and the pattern is only $1.00. There is a link on my side bar to our store, and one on Shelly's blog as well.
Wow I had 28 comments yesterday, amazing. I don't think I've ever had that many in one day. Today's contest mission... is a question.

This weeks Cocoa Swap topic:
What is the most 'random' memory you have from your childhood?
Well the first thought was a family vacation we took in Baja, I was 10, and my sisters were 8 and 3 years old. We stayed on this beach in a lean to, and I remember the three of us in a blow up raft type boat rowing out into the deep waters crossing over to another island to go digging for crabs. I still to this day wonder what my mother was thinking we were so young to be in the bay like that alone, it sure was a different era. But it was an awesome vacation, we were there 15 days. I still remember catching a conch and trying to get it out of the shell so we could cook it, and it was the first time this CA native ever had a sunburn. We had quite and adventure getting there too... I think our car broke down, we had to stay in a hotel overnight while it got fixed, no one spoke English, and I only knew a few basic Spanish words. Of course my mom and dad fought, they always fought, but my sisters and I, we stuck together and I'll always hold onto those memories. I have more if you're interested, LOL... like the time we needed Santa to save us from the snow storm, remember we were CA kids we had never seen snow... or the Flintstone village we found by accident... or... yeah so many.
I am sure I had more I wanted to blog today but this already seems pretty long and I don't want to overwhelm you so I'll save it for tomorrow.
Praying today that you all can know the blessing of the Lord as well, that He opens up the windows of heaven for you today and overflows your life with blessings more then you can receive.
