Signed, Sealed, Delivered!

So, here's a little peak into the random package I put together for the winner of my little package giveaway...

I love re-purposing glass baby food jars for use as little tealight holders.  I used brown bags to cover the outside and then a cool feather insignia stamp I found on Etsy to spruce up the brown paper a bit and then glued buttons on at the seams.  I felt the need to spruce up a few paper clips, too, so I glued some buttons on them as well.  I threw a bag of Guittard semi-sweet chocolate chips into the mix (my favorite) and a few odd postcards and such.  Voila!  Random package ready to go!

I then delivered it all in that awesome bag that Grace and I found at this amazing yarn shop downtown called "Cast Away."  Enjoy your package, Jessica!

P.S.  While searching for links, I stumbled upon this old post with this verse...  Hope it encourages you as it did me!

"My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.  He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved.  In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God.  Trust in him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us."  Psalm 62:5-8

And if you're in need of an extra dose of encouragement...  Check out these verses, too:

Psalm 46:1-3
Psalm 73:22-26
Psalm 52:8,9
Psalm 55:22
