About Areli

Hello, thank you so much for stopping by my blog! My name is Areli and I'm just a girl who loves Jesus and using God's gift to transform paper into little works of art.

My husband and I live in Michigan. We have been married 33 years. After raising our three children and only a couple of years of an empty nest, we are living a "life redirected" as we are raising our grandsons. I love the boys with all my heart. Every day that He chooses me to care for them is truly a blessing. And, on those days that are tougher than others, I rely on the strength of our Lord and hold on to His promise that "We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." ~Romans 8:28

With boys around, it's pretty obvious that my house is never lacking in things that make loud noises or covered in dirt. Which is why I take refuge in my crafting, my girly place.

It is such a blessing to have this opportunity to share with you some of the things I have learned while on my crafting journey. So pull up a chair and stay a while! And be sure to click the subscribe link over to the right so you'll get my blog updates right in your email and don't miss a thing!

Thank you, again, for stopping by!

With His Gifts,
