Valentine tee shirts and dresses

It's almost Valentine's Day, and I have been scrambling to get gifts done for the grandkids. There are many advantages to having 12 grandchildren, and as far as I can tell, only one disadvantage. And it always raises its ugly head on holidays. The disadvantage? 12 kids to get gifts for! I always have many ideas for the 9 girls, but the 3 boys are a mystery to me. I usually buy them something, although I could have made tees for them. I just don't know if they would have liked them. This time I bought match box cars and sticker books and drawing books. I hope they like them......I never know.

These are the tee shirts and dresses that I did for the girls, minus the 2 that have already gone to their respective homes.

My oldest granddaughter taught me how to make the flowers. And to think that I used to be the one who taught her!

Don't you love the little bird? I'm quite partial to birds. The Lord promises to care for me as He does the sparrow. Matthew 10:29-31 tells me: "Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows."

These children have definitely stolen my heart!

Notice the zipper flower. Isn't that cute?

Lilly, the 7 year old, designed this one.

The butterfly reminds me that God is in the business of changing us into a
beautiful butterfly as we allow Him to control our lives.
Romans 12:2 says, "And do not be conformed to this world,
but be transformed (metamorphosis) by the renewing of your minds
that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."
Just like a lovely butterfly is metamorphosed from a not-so-lovely worm,
we can be changed as well.
I encourage you, sweet ladies, to spend time in God's Word, the Bible.
Renew your minds with what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
Love to all who read,
