Proverbs 31:25

A Little Mom Inspo

She is clothed with strength and dignity,
    and she laughs without fear of the future

– Proverbs 31:25 (NLT)

I’m sure many of you have heard this before, or have seen it on a poster or somewhere online. I was playing around with my Over app on my iPhone trying to do just that (create a cute image with one of my favorite verses – for Instagram, of course!), so I opened up my Bible and started reading Proverbs 31, “The Sayings of King Lemuel…which his Mother taught him”

Let me share the whole passage with you starting at 31:10:

A Wife of Noble Character

10 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
    She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
    and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.

13 She finds wool and flax
    and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
    and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.

16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
    with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She is energetic and strong,
    a hard worker.
18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
    her lamp burns late into the night.

19 Her hands are busy spinning thread,
    her fingers twisting fiber.
20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
    and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
    for everyone has warm clothes.

22 She makes her own bedspreads.
    She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
    where he sits with the other civic leaders.Proverbs 31:25
24 She makes belted linen garments
    and sashes to sell to the merchants.

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
    and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
    and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
    and suffers nothing from laziness.

28 Her children stand and bless her.
    Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
    but you surpass them all!”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
    but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.
    Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

How beautiful is that?! Now you know where that famous verse comes from.

As a Wife and a Mother this passage is breathtaking — and it speaks to me even more as a Maker.. not that I’m sitting here spinning wool or anything, but it is truly inspiring. Not sure my husband sees me exactly this way but hey, I try. #wifegoals

I’ve put together a few new products in my Stickelberry Shop on Zazzle with Proverbs 31:25 on them to help inspire us. May we all raise our standard a bit higher and be as noble as we can today and everyday.

Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

Valentine, I’m Stuck on You

February. Love Month. Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

You know I love it!

I couldn’t wait to get started on this year’s Valentines for the boys, but I wanted to make it easy and do something personal that I know everyone would love.

I went with my favorite custom shop, Zazzle, to design and print these adorable business card-sized Valentines with stickers featuring my boys! Bonus: They can help me put them together so they can tell all their little friends that they helped make them.

Everyone loves stickers…. and my boys sure do love seeing themselves on a sticker. Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

This is a perfect project if you have multiple kids that you need to shell out Valentine’s for, because you’re ordering a whole box of business cards. I get all my business cards through Zazzle – the quality is great and it’s such a great value!

With my two boys and their classes and friends, we will use most of the box. If you don’t need THAT many cards, consider going in together with another mom — that’s an even better deal and you could have a valentine-making party! Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

The stickers are great – I opted for the heart-shaped stickers, since it is Valentine’s day, but you can get them in circles as well. You could also use regular store-bought stickers, but I think the personal touch makes these cards wayyy more cute and fun! Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

The only supplies you’ll need are some kind of adhesive, such as scrapbooking tape or a tape runner or sticky dots. I had this Scotch double-side tape on hand and it did the trick just fine. Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

I cut out my stickers — you can cut squares or make the effort to cut out around the heart (I did NOT have the patience for that on this day…). Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

My cutie.Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

Place the adhesive on the back of the sticker and then put the sticker on the card where it says “Place Sticker Here” (convenient, right?). Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

Then just have your little one sign his or her name, or do it for them, and you have a super cute Valentine with a sticker that their friends can play with. Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

Everyone loves stickers! Valentine, I'm Stuck on You Cards

You can find the cards here and design your own stickers here.

Oh Hey, it’s a Giveaway!

Don’t you love getting a new iPhone? I look forward to it every time it’s my turn to upgrade. But what I love even MORE is getting a new case (or two…or three?). Phone cases have become an accessory themselves nowadays. No longer are you limited to just a few single-color boring options; now, you can put anything on your case — it’s a blank canvas. iPhone7 Cases from ZazzleI always get my cases through Zazzle because I can design my own!

Transparent Flair

iPhone 7 Cases from ZazzleI love the concept of the transparent case — peek-a-boo, I see you! I love the art on the clear case for it’s subtlety, it’s barely there but still apparent beauty. iPhone 7 Cases from ZazzleBonus if you got a white or rose gold phone with this one. Isn’t she lovely? iPhone 7 Cases from ZazzleReminds me of a nice glass of Rose! You can find and purchase this and other clear cases HERE.

Marvelous Marble

iPhone 7 Cases from ZazzleI mean come on – this is gorgeous! Is it marble? Is it a satellite image of an ice cap? Is it a pool of marbled paint colors mixing together? So pretty! iPhone 7 Cases from Zazzle

This case has a matte finish which I happen to really like because it shows less wear and tear. You can find and purchase this and other marbled cases HERE.

Motivated Marble

iPhone 7 Cases from ZazzleAnother marbled beauty, but this one has a lovely motivational message on it! “It always seems impossible until it’s done” — that’s sure to get you going, especially given how lovely the script is.

iPhone 7 Cases from ZazzleI LOVE this one – I wish I had an iPhone 7 to put it on but I’m not due for an upgrade just yet! You can find and purchase this and other inspirational cases HERE.
