Hey, what’s up with that name?

Do you like it? For some reason when I was trying to think up a name for my blog, this name came back to me time and time again. Amazing Grace is one of my favorite hymns and runs through my head astonishingly often. Layer on that the fact that my Grandmothers name was Amaza – soooo unique. Then recently I saw the movie, Amazing Grace, not knowing anything of what it was about. Let me tell you, if you have not seen it — you should — it’s a great movie. But more so I think the name means something to me because the past year of my life has been so very difficult. The grave sickness of a loved one has brought everything in my life into scrutiny. My faith has strengthened and grown beyond measure. Somewhere in the hustle of sickness and service, I began to lose myself – this is where crafts and stamping come in. It’s just a little piece of me that I want to save. After prayer, taking care of my husband and taking care of my family – this is what I need to do for me….to keep my head above the water. I’ve been a stamper for more than ten years, and I was basically a crafter at birth. All during my working years, I collected and collected and collected, always too busy to use the things I had purchased. My vow for this year is to use and enjoy the things that I have. LOL, that doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t get more but I want to use and savor the things that are right here under my nose. My hope is that this blog will help me be productive, inspire me to create, keep my hands busy so that I don’t stress over the things I can’t change and help me find ways to give everyday. My journey to being right here, right now, typing this first post is no mistake. Even it it’s just for me and no one in the world sees this…..it is a blessing.

We have ordeered alot of the new folders and now can’t wait to get them. You have made the field so large and there are so many uses that we never thought about. Thank you so much for that and all you do. You are turely blessed. Thank you ,MerrilyReplyCancel

  • Virginia AndersonJuly 31, 2008 - 9:48 am

    To think you started your blog in February of this year…..You are doing a super job. Hope the stresses are less and your loved ones are doing well. Stamping also got me through difficult times while caring for sick loved ones. It is such a portable craft. I was able to make many stamped items on the hospital window ledge. The view out the window also gave me encouragement during difficult times of waiting and staying near-by.
    Blessings, Becca.

    I have been an admirer of your work for some time and have come to this blog and never read your reason for blogging. I just watched the video to create a circle with border punches and I’m so glad I did. My comment really has nothing to do with your stamping, but one of the statements you made.

    “After prayer, taking care of my husband and taking care of my family – this is what I need to do for me…”

    This so impressed me. The Lord has laid down His desire for us and you have it so very correct. Your husband and children surely call you blessed. Thank you for sharing a part of yourself and for blessing my life with yours.ReplyCancel

    You know how ever so often God sends just what you need, just when you need it? Well, I thank the Lord you letting me find your blog. This has been a difficult year in my life too. My mother was diagnosed with cancer right before Christmas last year and two months later my youngest son’s wife announced that she didn’t want to be married anymore (when their newborn daughter was only 3 months old). It has consumed so much of my time, that I find very little time for myself or my husband. I stopped crafting for about 8 months but thank you for your blog because I think the Lord has used it to let me know that it is OK for me to have some Me-Time without feeling so much guilt. Thank you so much!! Your projects are so beautiful and thank you also for teaching me new techniques! You have truly blessed my life.

    Dear Becca,

    May your road be shared with friends, laughter lighten your load and your heart be joyful even in the dark and tired times.

    As I used to tell my husbands doctor – come the end of the world there will be time enough to sleep!

    It sounds like you have learned to bend with the winds and gather strength from God who shelters us more than we know.

    Crafts of one kind or another have carried me through many kinds of need. And I learned a long time ago in Hospice that it is never selfish for caregivers to take time to recharge their “giving” batteries and openess of heart leads to openess of spirit.

    My prayers are with you and all who you love. – Jean

    Blessed be the name of the Lord and…
    Blessed be the sisterhood of the traveling stamps!
    Creativity is after all, a sure sign that the God who created the world also Created Us.ReplyCancel

  • Sharyn DavisNovember 3, 2008 - 9:04 pm

    Your story made me smile and I think I know you, not because we’ve personally met, but because I “understand” where you are in your life. Me too.
    And for buying, and buying and buying some more. What’s up with that? I wish someone would study us to figure it out. We also love to straighten out our space and orgainize it ……….again and again, right?
    Glad to have found a place to rest awhile. thanks!

    After reading your entire blog, I see that our crafting paths are very similar. I too have been collecting for years and years. Whenever I’d purchase something, I’d say if I don’t use it now, I will when I retire. I retired in December and I am now beginning to use the embarassing amount of collected treasure. I’ve told myself I will not purchase another item until all have been used. I know that’s not going to happen, but happily, I am using many of the things I already have.

    I want to thank you for inspiring me. Your blog is one I look for every day and I can’t wait to see what you’ve created. You are such a talent and I thank you for being out there in cybespace….Keep up the great work and know your work is loved by many.ReplyCancel

    It is when we are on our knees in prayer that our light shines more brightly. It is often when Christians suffer that we become more intimate with our Lord because He loves when we trust and depend on Him. I am sorry for all the pain that you went through, but am grateful to know that a Sister Friend in Christ was strengthened through surrender to the Lord.
    Praise God for His mercy and grace.

    Thank You for sharing your talent with the world. What a BLESSING you have been to everyone who follows your blog.

    Peace in Christ,

  • Carol WestMarch 27, 2009 - 9:46 pm

    Why I haven’t clicked on this link before is beyond me because I try to read everything on your blog. It is through God’s Amazing Grace that I found your website. Last year was the worse year of my life, but through it all I found our Savior again and restored my faith. My husband was diagnosed with inoperable and incurable cancer due to Agent Orange and given less than a year to live, our basement flooded, I broke my leg and ankle 2 days before he was scheduled for surgery after his radiation treatments, my aunt that lived with us passed away, and it just goes on and on. If it hadn’t been for a friend introducing me to scrap-booking and card making I have no idea how I would have kept my sanity. Your blog was one of the first I found and I am so thankful for the inspiration, the confirmation of faith, and the beautiful work that you do. Thanks be to God that my husband is still with us and doing better for now. May God Bless you and your family, know that you are loved for who you are, and for what you share and give to others.ReplyCancel

    Don’t know why I never clicked on this before….I come to be amzaed and inspired nearly every day…Amazing Grace is a perfect title. I too am one of those who would laugh about my craft stash and say….just as soon as I retire…..Well, 65 was 5 years ago and still have not managed it. I have cut back on the little that I did due to financial constraints (the story of our lives, huh? ) but am renewed in my determination to take some creative time for myself. Thanks you, as always, for sharing your work!ReplyCancel

  • Ms. DonnaMay 20, 2009 - 7:13 am

    I truly like the name. I am a crafter, but not so much a scrapbooker, greeting card maker, stamper. Although I have all the tools to create a lot of the latter, I can’t seem to get inspired to make anything. I look at the blogs, the websites with the beautiful greeting cards at cricut.com and wonder, how they come up with so many ideas. I have a Cricut Expression, paper, two cartridges, (maybe that’s it, I need more cartridges) and I really want the Cricut Design Studio and Sure Cuts a Lot software programs, but can’t afford them. I started out with floral arrangements, then jewelry making and now I have scrapbooking. I think I put toooooo much thought into making things and that’s why I get so discouraged. I need to wait for the inspiration from God to make the cards. Like I do with floral arrangements, He picks the flowers, the containers, how they are placed and what scripture verses to incorporate in them.ReplyCancel

    I left a response on your blog today re buying the Quietfire caligraphy stamps you have used this past week. Well I tried on their site but couldn’t complete the order form because I live in the UK. I then emailed them about my dilema and Suzanne Cannon emailed me back and sorted things out for me – but why I’m telling you all this is she tells me she once lived in my area, now isn’t it a small world!!!

    Hi Becca,

    I just found your website and blog recently and am addicted! I wish I had the talent you have. Your cards are probably the prettiest I’ve ever seen.

    I love making cards and sending them to family, friends and the older ladies at church who are having health problems. I had two ladies from church call me after receiving their Christmas cards to tell me how much it means to them to open my cards and to know that I made their card especially for them. One of the ladies was even crying. I hated to hear her cry but it warmed my heart that it meant so much to her.

    Thank you so much for sharing your God given talent with all of us and for giving such great witness to the Lord. God bless you and your family.

    Becca, I have finally gone through every single one of your blogs…! Each and every one is inspiring, heartfelt, and full of beauty. Of all the many blogs I’ve passed through, yours is always at the top of my list for your creativity and your perception of beauty. I love the way you think outside the box (or circle if you prefer) while you explore all the many pathways of your imagination. You aspire all of us to find our (sometimes hidden) artistic visions and remind us that there is no limitation to ones concept of beauty. Thank you so much for sharing your God-given talents with us—you are a blessing for sure! Hugs, DebraKReplyCancel

    Hi Becca ! I’ve just discovered your blog through one of the Christmas hops some weeks ago. I subscribed to your newsletter because I loved your work.

    Becca, I have loved visiting your blog for quite a wee while now and I wanted to visit at the beginning. I’ll enjoy going through the lovely inspiring creations and uplifting thoughts from your blog through the years.
    Amazing Grace is one of my favourite hymns too, my mum loved it too.
    She was a beautiful singer and one of my earliest memories is of her singing along to this on the radio (Amazing Grace with the bagpipes) whilst doing housework. It was lovely. “The old rugged cross” was another favourite I always think of her singing when I hear it.
    My mum passed away in the Spring of 2005, now whenever I hear this
    I get very emotional & well up with tears, but it’s tears of happiness of the beautiful memories of my mum’s smile while she sang her heart out and the knowledge that our faith gives us strength, no matter what life may bring to us.
    God bless you,

    It was no “accident” that I came to this blog. The Lord clearly led me here. Your work is beautiful and I know that you are, too. I am thankful to have your influence and inspiration in my life and will be visiting often. I most make cards and it’s so great to Spellbinders products to assist me. Wow! My card making has become so much easier and more fun.
    Have a blessed, Holy Spirit filled day!

    Hi Becca,
    I have been inspired by your web site. I have only been paper crafting for about 2 years, my daughter got me interested in it. Your web site was the first that impressed me the most. I know this time of the year is very difficult for you, but God thru Jesus Christ does bless us. My prayers are with you.
    Love in ChristReplyCancel
