Falling into the Idea...

As I am sure you all know by now, I have started my own Etsy Store, Greeting Cards for Our Garden, to help me raise enough money to pay for our third IVF procedure. You can check it out on my sidebar to the right. I have truly enjoyed making all the cards so far...such a great way to destress after a long day at work :) Tonight I came home and started working on Fall/Thanksgiving cards...I love fall and the weather right now is just perfect!



I just can't help but believe that God is really speaking to me right now...about the cards, about the generous friends that have been so willing to help me with this journey, as well as the outpouring of support. I know that I was meant to be a mother, maybe not in the way I had planned, but a mother nonetheless.



I am certain that this is part of His plan and I am definitely falling for the idea...






These are just a few samples of the fall cards I have made so far...they are really putting me into the Thanksgiving season :)

I forgot to mention that my friend Angela at Three at Four is doing a giveaway and one of my card sets is the PRIZE! Please comment on her blog to enter the giveaway!

What an awesome idea to create something to sell in order to raise enough money for your IVF!

Thanks for checking out my blog. My journey through infertility has on ly lasted 7 months but it has still been extremly difficult. Please check out my posting today and it will give you alittle information into my journey. I love your cards and plan on checking out your store. I send cards for everything and still think that snail mail is the greatest.

Wow, those look great...

I also wanted to say that I completely know the emotional sacrifice that comes with saying the words "I know that I was meant to be a mother, maybe not in the way I had planned, but a mother nonetheless"...that said, I'm really proud of you and hope that I can get there sooner than later!

Praying for you!
