makingallthingsnew's Shop Announcement

When I create, I am often inspired by old things, such as T shirts, to make new things, but not always. Sometimes, new fabrics and materials inspire me as well. I mostly make things for children--cloth diapers, diaper covers, fleece training pants, and knit wool play food--but occasionally you'll find an adult hat, pair of knit socks, or a Christmas ornament here as well.

I'm inspired by my faith in Jesus Christ and by what he can do with old, tossed out things. My friendship with Him and the work He did for me on the cross define me as an individual. At the end of Revelation, after John describes the Apocalypse, God shows him heaven and says, "I am making everything new!" In 2 Corinthians 5:17 we read, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." It gives me hope to know that even when I mess up or when life gets bad, God can make a beautiful new creation from my mess and rags.

I hope that in my life, as well as in my Etsy shop, I am a reflection of the God who went through death and hell so that I wouldn't have to.
