My Favorite Things August

I know I’m a day late, but I am excited about this month’s My Favorite Things post! BTW, I can not believe I am posting August’s post already. How is July over? So, this month is sadly my last month that I will be doing a My Favorite Things box. Though, I am sad to see this series go, I am excited about sharing another giveaway with you all that I’ll be sharing next month. I have plans to hopefully do a creative giveaway that will help you all feel inspired and still connect here at SLL. If you are new here or a new subscriber then luckily you have one more shot at one of my, “My Favorite Things Box.” it’s easy to enter all you have to do is be a subscriber here, comment on this post, and have a US address.

This month’s giveaway I have this adorable Tumbler from Craftee by Design and this stencil from A Maker’s Studio with paint. I love the idea that you can make what you want and then enjoy coffee from this cute tumbler when you’re on the go.


Also, if you’re still curious about joining a Maker’s Studio, let me know…I’d love to share more with you all!

Good, luck I’ll be selecting my winner in a week!

  3. Hello, this is my first time seeing any of your ‘favorite things” and especially in times likes the ones we live in, to see anything with a Reverent reference to God is most refreshing and needed. We seem to live in a world of godlessness, so Hooray for your mentioning the Creator!!!!

  17. Honestly I have to say, when I saw that tumbler I thought to myself, “this is what I should say to myself everyday” since I currently have cancer and am on chemo and need every little inspiration I can get. I think I’ll write it on my mirror. That’s another reason I look forward to your emails, feeling creative has been a huge factor in my process.
    Thanks so much,

    1. Praying for you Sherry! I’m so glad this brings that distraction to your life. Creating is so powerful when we are going through tough times. Also, starting our day with God is how he envisions us starting our day and we can’t get through the day without him!
