Overflowing with Creativity 3/2

Last month, my baby sister’s hubby was diagnosed with a brain tumor — they have three sweet babies.  The situation is definitely ugh in all caps, but they are holding tight to the promise that God is always trustworthy!  We’ve been blown away by tons of awesome donations from 40+ families for a HUGE yard sale we’re hosting at my older sister’s house this weekend.   We are praying God raises an unbelievable amount of money to help offset medical expenses!  Their story and yard sale updates will be posted here.  As for me, here’s what I’ve been up to this week…
