Philippians 1:3-7

I Hold You In My Heart — Bible Journaling

 

Bible journaling is so much fun! This one is based off of the letters from Paul to the church of Philippians.

Philippians 1:3-7

 

“3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,

always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy,

because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart…”

 

A few things that you will need to do Bible Journaling:

-Bible with wide margins and room to write/draw. (Amazon has some great options)

-Fine tip pen and pencil

-Markers, colored pencils, sticker etc

How to get started:

  • Find a passage of scripture that stands out or you want to remember in the future and use that for inspiration.
  • Find keywords you can emphasize with a cool font so your entry will “pop”… look up fun fonts and try to mimic those if your having trouble finding inspiration — It also can help to pair a plain font along with a fancier one so that there isn’t too much competition on the page.
  • Pencil in your idea first so you can make changes as you go.
  • Go over your design with a fine tip pen and add any colors you may like with colored pencil, markers etc.
  • If you love washi tape and stickers pull them out bc this is your time! This is a great alternative if you don’t love drawing.

Another fun idea is to listen to the bible as you work on your journal entry!

(For this post we used prisma color watercolor pencils and a mambi planner fine tip pen.)

We hope you have tons of fun recreating your own bible journal entry! Make sure to tag us @thevintagepearl and #biblejournalwiththevintagepearl so we can see what you created!

Sterling Silver vs. Pewter

STERLING SILVER VERSES PEWTER

Sterling Silver vs. Pewter – what is the difference

One of the questions we get asked most often here at thevintagepearl.com is “What is the difference between sterling silver and pewter”?  While this is not meant to be a definitive list we want to be able to answer this question with what most often concerns our customers.

There are a few things to consider when choosing sterling silver vs. pewter.

Pewter

  • Our fine pewter is unique in that it does not tarnish.
  • It is a mixture of different metals, including mostly tin, a small amount of  copper, and sometimes even has a bit of silver in it.
  • It also has that beautiful shine similar to sterling silver but it will start to naturally dull over time. You can easily bring back it’s shine with a few wipes of one of our jewelry polish pads.
  • It is a lower price point which is always nice when you can purchase a beautiful necklace for a little less, and makes it a great option for younger girls.

Sterling Silver

Precious metals like Sterling Silver will require a little more maintenance.

  • Sterling silver will naturally tarnish over time, but it is easy to clean up with one of our polish pads.
  • It has a higher price tag, but it also has a higher quality to it that makes it a piece of jewelry that you can keep for a lifetime.

Disney 3v3 Soccer Championship Tournament

TSC '08 Crushers soccer team playing at Disney World 3v3 soccer tournament

Eden’s 3v3 soccer team had the opportunity to play in the Disney 3v3 soccer tournament! Their team is called the TSC ’08 CRUSHERS (and yes, they picked their name, very intimidating.) They played their games at the Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando. Our team stayed at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, which I would highly recommend.

Merry Christmas! (the big reveal…)

Just like last year we assigned a Disney character name to label the kids presents so they had to guess which character they were… it drives them nuts not knowing and makes it a fun guessing game. Caleb guessed them all correctly and Jonah was THRILLED (sarcastic) to be a princess again (last year he was Elsa)… this year Caleb was Eeyore, Jonah was Ariel, Tessa was Olaf and Eden was Tinkerbell…

This has become a fun Christmas tradition we will continue over the years!

Merry Christmas, friends!

Our 2016 Fall jewelry Collection is here and I am so thrilled with every piece! 

  a fall jewelry collection favorite is our custom hand stamped silver crescent necklace

One of my absolute favorites in our fall jewelry collection is our handstamped “crescent” necklace. It is a beautiful organic charm, handmade in your choice of sterling silver or gold filled. Handstamp any name, date or word of inspiration. All text is justified to the left, and can be worn in the front or the back. The letters are left natural, they are not antiqued, giving the piece a more subtle and organic feel.

Our “family links” necklace is created with beautiful handmade organic circles that are linked together. Wear a circle for each child or member of your family. A beautiful piece that looks great dressed up or with jeans and has special meaning to it.  The sterling silver circles are hand created in different sizes and they are imperfectly perfect, just like our families!

Our “Wanderlust” ring set uses longitude and latitude to pinpoint the place that celebrates your life journey!  A beautiful set of 2 sterling silver rings: one compass ring and one message ring handstamped with any coordinates or text.
