More Braggin' Rights

Oh, do I ever wish I had permission to post some pics! We just received our commissioned banners and stole from Carrot Top Studio - Owner/Artist Jenny is a RevGalBlogPal and I've got to say, she does EXQUISITE work! We could not be happier. She designed and made a wedding set for us, just in time for this coming weekend's wedding of a third-generation member's wedding. Sister Pastor and I have been turning back our wedding fees from church-related weddings (when people have insisted on our accepting them) so that we had just enough in the fund for Jenny's VERY reasonable prices, and she whipped them out in next to no time.

Super, super beautiful! If your church needs/wants either of these items (stoles or banners), you really MUST contact Carrot Top Studio! Don't go anywhere else. I mean this--can you tell?

As soon as Jenny posts the pictures on their website, I'll link to them.

(Trying very hard to remain mature here and not do the "nanny-nanny-boo-boo, we have pretty church things and you don't" dance. --GRIN!)

I'm really glad to look at this link. I've been collecting links to liturgical fiber art. I have a friend who has done this full time for over 20 years.

I have been asked to make an ordination stole for my daughter. My friend has been advising me. I'm even stuck on the type of material to choose.

By all means, contact Jenny. Her prices for commissioned stoles begin at $90. Ours is pretty "fancy," and was $95. You cannot touch that price for custom-made stoles. She took my first e-mailed list of ideas/requirements and came up with an absolutely perfect result.

I'm tellin' ya, you WILL NOT be disappointed!

And no, she's not paying me to say these things. Honest!

Oh, P.S., I didn't read your comment carefully enough, did I? (hanging head)

Cool thing to be making your friend's ordination stole! YOU GO!

Hi Psalmist!
I just had another blog-friend contact me and she's been "going to MY church for the past 9 months!" We're going to meet for coffee. Can you believe this stuff? I wish my feet had been better when I was DFW, so I could meet you.

The new friend is one of the writers of "More than Serving Tea" about Asian Women in America and their faith.

More later...keep up the inspiration. I come here to be lifted up!

Hi, Paisley!

Now I'm super-embarrassed; I didn't realize you'd commented. Apparently my e-mail notification didn't work.

How too cool about your blog friend/church friend! Let me know how your meeting goes. Wish we'd been able to get together.

Blessings to you!

Related to your last comment: my comment notification doesn't work either. I thought it was because my blogsend address stopped working. I would get bounce emails. So I changed the blogsend to an alternate address, but I don't get notifies about comments. Darn. I can't find a blogger address for a real person to fix this problem. The blogger comment group thing perplexes me, so I don't know what to do.

ps to my PS comment. I now see that the blogsend and comment notification are two different things. But blogger won't use my real email address; aparently it bounced once.
