Vintage Valentines: The Homemaking Party


Hello Friends! Welcome to The Homemaking Party! Hope you're all having a happy week so far. I've been busy setting up a second Etsy shop---one dedicated to letter writing and mail art to complement my Victorian Letter Writers Guild.

Tonight I listed four of these antique reproduction paper fan Valentine's Day cards. They are so adorable and unique! I'm sure they will sell out fast.

I've also got a card for sale with a full letter written on the back of it. The letter dates to 1964 and is good for a couple of laughs!

I've also got these bits of vintage Valentines that need a little TLC. I thought they'd be fun to incorporate into a junk journal or other mixed media project. I'm selling them as a set.

I've got this cute elephant Valentine, as well. He's so sweet and is used as a finger puppet for little hands. Adorable!

You can visit my shop here: VictorianLetters

What kinds of fun Valentine's crafting do you have planned for this season? I'm hoping to get out some cards to my Guild members and a few other special people. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Lynzie's Turning 19 Tomorrow!! The Homemaking Party

Hello everyone!
This week we're celebrating a very special lady---my oldest daughter, Lynzie, is turning 19 tomorrow!

It's hard to believe at her age I was married and almost expecting her. Time goes by so fast...

Last night I took her out to dinner and to see the new Mary Poppins movie. We loved it! It was just as good as the original. Just fabulous!

Of course, she had to go in costume. This girl is one of a kind, for sure! I sure do love her. If you've got a minute, stop by her blog, Elegant Homemaking, and send her some birthday love!
Happy Birthday Lynzie Mae!

Thanks for stopping by The Homemaking Party! Hope you're having a lovely week!

The Homemaking Party: An Important Devotional for Women Making Goals


Hello Friends! Welcome to the Homemaking Party!

Wow! I don't know about you but this year seemed to completely fly by for our family! We made lots of great friends and special memories---but there's a big part of me that is saying, slow down! So, New Year Resolution Number One is: stay home more!

Do you make New Year Resolutions? Some years I make an elaborate categorized list of my goals for the upcoming year. Other times, I just pick one thing. However you do it, the important thing is to assess why you feel the need to make a change and then start taking simple, doable steps toward that goal.

I hope you'll check out my devotional for women, Now: Purposeful Steps Toward a More Abundant Life, available in paperback and on Kindle. It's all about taking the steps needed to start living the way you want to and to stop making excuses about why you think you can't. Sound simple? It is! It's a simple little book that you can read through in a day for encouragement or spend time going through it more slowly as a study toward change. It features study questions and prayer topics and is a great gift for yourself or another woman in your life who wants to live a fulfilling life right where she's at!

 Many blessings for your new year! I'm looking forward to great things!
