Hello Hello! Y'all, it is less than 95 degrees here in Alabama.  It must be a record or something for this time in August.  Sadly, the skeeters are still out so we can't stay outside for long.  Take what you can get, right?

Anywho, I have a special announcement to make.  After a good month of contemplation and prayer, Raleigh and I have decided to open up an Etsy shop called nothing2something.

And, because we love our blog followers THIS MUCH {insert giant squeeze hug} we are offering y'all a 10% discount with your purchase.  When you check out, just type in this coupon code:


To make life a little easier, we have made the shop easily accessible from the blog.  There is a button on the right side bar that you can click on and also if you go to Home + Made/nothing2something shop.  If you are going straight to Etsy it is this: nothing2something.etsy.com

For those of you who have been following Christen's Crafts & Cutie Patootie, it will have most of those items on there.  Also, I am so stinkin' excited to announce that my wonderfully talented computer nerd husband is starting his own line of printables.  Isn't this one cute?

To purchase this announcement, click here

So, you will be able to purchase items such as:

  • Monogram & Applique Baby Tees, Bibs, & Burp Cloths
  • Printable Invitations for birthdays, birth announcement, save the date, wedding, and much more (really, he has some cool ideas up his sleeve)
  • Fabric Bows, Sock Monkeys, & other fun kid accessories
  • Nursery & Digital Art

The shop is ever-evolving so be sure to check it out daily to see what's new!  Speaking of new, I will have tons of cute football stuff on it soon so check it out before you buy your kiddos gear anywhere else!  Here are some stock images that can be customized:

Sweet friends, the name of our shop means so much to us.  We found this version of Psalm 139 in The Message and just knew it was going to fit: You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.

You know, God is truly humbling us right now with the start of this shop.  I feel like this is the right time in our lives to be doing this and it is so neat to see an idea that started as nothing turn into something.  I hope you can take that and apply it to your own life....give your idea to the Lord and let Him plant it in fertile ground.  You never know what He is going to turn that idea into...it just takes some trust and time to see the fruit of your labor.

If you have any questions or a particular idea in mind, feel free to e-mail us at n2sshop@gmail.com.  All orders will need to be placed through Etsy, but we can go ahead and start on the design of what you had in mind.

I hope you take time to look into our shop's windows.  Thank you in advance!  Don't forget to use the coupon code uncontaintruth811 to receive a 10% discount!!!  Who doesn't love a sale!

Till next time, let your light shine!

Blessings, christen
