The Launch of Redeeming Creations!

We have been working on this site for a month now.  Collecting, writing, and sorting all of the blog posts so that you will have a nice little collection to look through when we launch.

If you spend much time on the Better Life Bag Facebook page, you already know about this project.  It was born as an idea in my head about a year ago and I'm so excited to see it take fruition!

And today... we launch it into Internet World!

What is Redeeming Creations?  Well, when you first get to the blog, you'll see these scrolling images - that tell a story:

I wanted to create a place in blogland where the crafty and the spiritual come together.  Because deep in the heart of God is a creative nature.  He created the world, after all.  {Talk about the ultimate DIY!} I can't help but look at creativity as the greatest gift from Him.

And re-purposed, up-cycled, and re-used crafts are my favorite because they remind me of myself.  And of you.  People who are screwed up, messed up, and sinful.  And a God who takes that and creates something beautiful and useful.

I worry that this crafty blog-land is taking glory away from God - the ultimate creator.  So, this is my attempt to make God famous.

The blog will focus on featuring crafty ladies who re-purpose old, broken, or dirty everyday items and turn them into works of art.  {If you have a repurposed tutorial, submit it to be featured!  I'll drive all traffic to your post.}

But probably more important than the awesome crafts, will be the redemptive stories.  There are already a few listed.  Stories of love, and loss, and forgiveness.  {Each one making my eyes tear up.}  All sharing how God took a broken heart, broken life, or broken circumstance and made it whole again.  

Want to help me make God famous?

Share!  Share!  Share!  Share the blog, share the Redeeming Creations FB page, share the Twitter account, put a button up on your own blog, or rent an airplane with a banner flying behind it saying "".  {ok, that last one is kinda extreme}
