Why "Joy"

Joy is a choice you make each and every day! Joy is a gift from our Heavenly Father! It is your weapon! When you smile at someone...they smile back. When you laugh...others will laugh with you. When you think happy thoughts...you feel better. Come on...Do some "Joy" things...kick the devil where it hurts! Defeat him!! Psalm 28:7 "The Joy of the Lord is my Strength and my Shield, my heart trusts in Him and He helps me. My heart leaps for Joy, and with my song I praise Him"

I'm sorry I've not posted in awhile...I struggle so much with blogging that I get frustrated and just quit.  I can't seem to make it be like I want..and can't afford to pay what the fees are for a professional so I'm trying to find someone to help me now...please be patient with me.  In the meantime..here's a few of the latest items I've worked on....
I sooo love waiting for my inspirational blogs...one of my fav's is Shanty2Chic...
check out their project gallery...You'll see something similar to my LOVE sign....these sisters are amazing!
This is my version of a "Texas" Dresser...If you look real close you can see the star created with
upholstery tacks-  I used ASCP in Emporer's Silk, Old White and Napoleonic Blue with a dark wax.  It was such a cool dresser...one I wanted to keep!  

I wish this was a better pic...I have gotten a new Iphone now..so hopefully future pics can be clearer.
The heart is made with rosettes I created with vintage muslin. 

I'll do my best to post more often...finally learned how to create a page on facebook...so maybe 
you can check out The Joy Booth and "Like" me...
Thanks for looking....Loads of blessings to ya!


  1. Thanks for stopping in at my blog Jamie. So what sort of stuff do you want to do to your blog? Ask me some questions, I'll help you if I can and i'm free.


  2. I love your signs, Jamie! And I love the way you took an ordinary dresser and transformed it into something special. You never fail to inspire me and my wheels are turning...
