To all who mourn in Israel, He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory. Isaiah 61:3

Blogiversary Giveaway Drawing!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the Giveaway!  I loved reading all of your costuming stories and getting to know you a little bit better!  I believe that that's what the costuming community is all about!  Enjoying each other's company, learning from each other and admiring others creations!!

Colton and I did a live filming of the drawing on my Beauty from Ashes Facebook account and I will link to that below.
