A Brand New Day

Welcome! I've missed you! I have been busy (like everyone) and got out of the rhythm of posting. I have news! It's great big, giant, scary news for me! Have a minute for a short story? Pull up your coffee!

Many of you know I moved back home to live with my Dad in Texas a few years ago. He developed lung cancer and passed away last March. It was an adventure that brought us closer together and introduced me to the Church I serve even now.

I was constantly busy with Dad, but after his passing, I found myself looking for the "what's next." It's a change of seasons, a new focus, an old passion, and a big stamp of approval. I am launching my very precious, tender, and long-awaited baby -- welcome to BunnyNest Ministries! Ta-da!!

Oh my word - I am saying this out loud! That comes with a lot of pressure. Don't worry - God's got this. Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing my testimonies. God has blessed me and directed me over and over. I spent every day of the last 4 months pestering Him for His appointment and listening to His reply.

God has shown me my next assignment. I'll be going on national and international mission trips, and, (I'm so stinking excited!) I'll be building a scholarship fund so that another person can go with me to learn how missions work. I believe my whole life has prepared me for this, and the next step is His perfect foot stone of my path.

From here forward, all purchases and donations (see my new missions support button upper right) will go into a fund that pays for mission trips and incidental supplies, along with that scholarship. If you buy a card or stamping supplies, pay for a lesson/class, finished artwork, camera stands, or anything else I can come up with -- it will all go toward missions funding (aside from shipping fees and replacing consumable supplies).

I'm going to need lots of prayers, too. I know it will be hard, sometimes dangerous, and exhausting. But I also know it will be worth it. So there you have it. My crazy, scary-big news. I promise you updates once the trips are scheduled and reports on where, what, who, when, etc. For now, I have to get busy making and selling things. I cannot do this without your love and support. I hope you're as excited as I am!

To celebrate this big, scary news - I made this darling card for a friend's birthday. I hope she likes it. She loves the bunnehs I bring to choir practice. Who doesn't?

And here's a tip - use a thin layer of glossy accents over any eyes on your project. That makes them come to life!

Ok - it's a long post and I know you have lots of important things to do. Thank you for spending a little time with me, and sharing in my news!

I drew my personal logo (bunneh!) and Bossy Joscie did the honors of creating it. She did a fantastic job!! She makes all kinds of custom stamp - please visit her!


  1. Awww ~ I Love you Ky! You have such a heart for God and others ~ I am so blessed that He put you in my life!

  2. How amazing!!! Since the moment we became friends, I knew that God made it so. I felt that very special connection with you then and it has grown into a friendship that I cherish so much and thank God for daily. And so, it's no great surprise that God has called upon you to walk with Him in this new and exciting life venture! I can feel the fearlessness and enthusiasm in your words and it's contagious!!! Look at that awesome business card, eep!!! That's yours, Ky!!! What a blessing it is to have such inspiring friends in my life--friends like you who motivate me in my everyday life to be kind, happy, to smile at a stranger, to send an rak to someone, to hold a door open, to love one another, and to love and serve God to my best ability. Thank you for all you do, for all you are and for being a beautiful light in this world when it can often seem so dim. What a beautiful example of living your best life as a child of God you are!!! Nothing can stop you now, sister!! Love you so much!!! xoxo


I adore comments. Make my day brighter and leave me some love!

Welcome to the Bunny Nest! I host rescued animals in a small in-home setting. Currently, I host 3 bunnies and 2 kitties. These animals will be socialized and housed for the entirety of their lives in my home. They inspire my crafts, and I use any proceeds to pay for their needs. Thanks for visiting!
