sharing from my heart to yours
Whispers of Joy
There's lots happening at Whispers of Joy this week!
What do you think of the new look on the site? I decided we needed a facelift...something a little brighter. Think spring! I'm also hoping it's a little more readable and organized.
There are new prices on many items and a new gift set on the Specialty page!
There's also another giveaway at the Treasure Chest for you to enter!
Also check out the blog post about it for more chances to enter!
You can also get your little darling's picture on the site and qualify to enter to win a Gift Certificate at The Secret Gallery!
You've probably noticed the new picture in the heading logo. Aren't they cute?! They are actually my little cousins and they look so adorable in the spring setting there! I did a photo contest through Facebook when I started this site and received some fun pictures of little Whispering Kiddos! :) I decided to keep that up here and give everyone a chance to 'make the page' and win a gift certificate. Check out more details at the Secret Gallery.
VOID[Then if you hunt really hard and really fast... you could win another great prize (only the first 5 qualifty)!
Basically, I have a hidden webpage that you can only find through ONE link on this entire site. Do some browsing and find it...cuz it's a secret and I'm not gonna tell you where it is! But if you're one of the first 5 people to find it AND fill out the form there, you'll win a special gift! Better start hunting! :)]VOID
Five people have found the link- I have now removed it!
I will contact the winners and soon! :)
So I'm finally posting another project!
I've made a couple of these so far, and am in the middle of another right now.
They are so much fun to make, but somewhat time consuming as well.
They make awesome gifts and are so versitile and customizable!
I may be adding some to my shop in the near future so check back often! :)
I love the 'spring-iness' of this fabric!!
Isn't the texure amazing!? The colors just peek through the main fabric to add a little depth and fullness.
Makes a great phot prop!

I made another quilt specially for my friend Eunika's baby girl.
Little Jade deserved a special blanket just for her that was warm enough for the chilly midwest where they live.
I had finished it before my little Rystin was born and I was tempted to save it for myself in case I had a girl. Guess I don't have to wish I did now! :)
Please pray for the little princess, Jade, as she is currently in the hospital recoverying from a serious case of bacterial meningitis. The Lord has bless them so much already as she seems to be improving greatly after the scare they had last week. Please spary for healing for Jade and for the family.
Love you, Jade!
Aren't these blankets fun!?
The possibilities are andless and I'm anxious to keep making them.
The one I'm working on now has a unique twist to it so check back soon to see the details. Interested in one for a child you know? Contact me and I will take custom orders! Thanks for checking up on us at Whispers of Joy
The 5th Annual Artisan Fair
will be held at
16320 Ne 202nd Ave
Brush Prairie, WA
(may end up being only the 4th)
Here's a preview of some of the products that will be there from Whispers of Joy...
There may also be a giveaway for all those who stop by and say hello!
Come back for more details!
Hope to see you there!
I've gone in 'business'!
Actually, I just plan to take orders for bakery such as bread, rolls, and so on from local neighbors and friends who would like to place orders for homemade goodies. On Thursday this week and next week I plan to have a road side stand near our home to introduce myself to locals and get people interested.
If you are interested in stopping by and would like to know where I'll be located, send me an email!
You may have noticed the new link on the side bar 'Local Baking'. This is where info on my weekly schedule, pricing, and other info will be located for those planning to order.
I look forward to getting some regular customers. I enjoy baking, so I'm hoping it will be a lot of fun and not too overwhelming! If you have questions or are interested in learning more, let me know!
So if you haven't noticed, I am behind on my color challenges again this month, as I've been out of town. Decided I'd post this for a yellow project and introduce a new Sort-n-Stash Pocket style at the same time!
This new choice will be added to the Sort-n-Stash Pockets page soon for you to purchase for your purse, diaper bag, suitcase (just discovered they work great to organize that too!), car, or whatever else you can think of!
Pictures updating you on my MIA status the last couple weeks coming soon!
Did you notice?! There are some *NEW* things here in the shop!
Personalize your Paci!
What fun!! :) With many different styles
to choose from, you can make your little darling's
Perfect Paci Set even more perfect!
These look great on the new Solid Color Paci Sets.
I'm looking forward to having lots of fun with this new line!
But wait...! There's more... coming soon!
During the month of March (hopefully!), there will be
some MORE new products, as well as a contest &/or giveaway!
Sign up for the Newsletter to receive a heads up notice and to stay updated!
I'm excited about all the new things coming!
Let me know what you think of these Personalized Pacis!
Email me with questions or comments, or post them below!
Just thought I'd share the Name that Frame that I did for a friend's bridal shower. These have made great shower gifts in the past, so if you're ever stumped, check out the options from Whispers of Joy!
This particular frame is one that I bought with my friend in mind, and it's not available to purchase here. But I do special orders, so if you have a frame at home and would like me to create something similar to this to put in it, send me an email and I'll see what we can work out!
Babies, babies, and more babies. Oh what fun! :) A friend (and cousin!) of mine is due for her first next month. Her baby shower was last night, and like most baby showers, was full of oohs, ahhs, tissue paper, and yummy goodies! I also got to meet my newest little cousin, Gretchen, who was born in December (SO adorable!!). My gift to the mommy-to-be…
The bag is reversible; the other side is green with a similar pocket in brown. Inside the bag I had a matching set of Sort-n-Stash Pockets. The largest had some covers for the diaper bag with the two different print choices… Eventually there will be a bag (or maybe more!) similar to this set for sale, so keep watching!
The second pocket had a wipe container inside. She gets to add the diapers! And the smallest pocket had some colic tablets inside (though I told her she shouldn’t need those!).
She seemed to be excited about the bag so I’ll mark it off as a happy ‘customer’. ;) Like the bag? Place a special order for yours today!
Admit it. You do too! They stick out, cover the cute stuff, and pretty much look tacky! Pacifiers! Yuck. I mean seriously... who wants to see this big green thing...
...hiding half your darling child's face when you could see this...
(Yeah that's my baby... and I think he's cute! So what?! hehe)
But really... I DO realize that some babies like to have their pacis (mine included!) So I had to break down and get one... but most of them are SO ugly! So I opted for the clear paci that wouldn't hide my darling boy's sweet smile:
Yeah... so it worked... but it was still boring and ugly!
Thus... PERFECT PACIS were born! (Drum Roll Please!) ... ... ...
Aw... just... Perfect! :)
Just humor me...
CHECK THEM OUT!
So I've been looking for ways to make my site better. Any ideas? I'm welcoming anything you can come up with! One thing I know everyone loves are freebies! Am I right?? Not many of those in the world these days, hey? Well Whispers of Joy is going to have them! Yay! :)
One thing I plan to do is have sweepstakes drawings, early bird discounts, and seasonal sales. So make sure you sign up for the newsletter, as much of the information on these bonuses will come through email.
Another thing I plan to start doing is having specialty items. Gift baskets, single quantity products, regular merchandise made unique, or one-of-a-kind treats will be posted on the Limited Specialty Items page. Many of these will also be made known through the newsletter. Check up on this page often, as there will be lots of fun stuff posted, but many times limited availability. I look forward to coming up with different ideas for this new page!
Hello and Welcome!
