{sew inspiring - karen davis}

One thing that I wish I had more time to do is to blog hop.  My days are so incredibly busy that I rarely ever get to sit and just relax let alone read for pleasure.  But one of the blogs that I try to visit at least every few weeks is one that always brings a smile to my face.

My "sew inspiring" friend I want to introduce you to this week is Karen Davis and her blog Celebrate Life.  Karen is a military wife and mom living in Korea.  She is a photographer, sewer and faithful servant of God - and truly, every time I open up her page, I leave there with a true smile on my heart.

Her husband has recently deployed and before going, she made him this amazing photo book full of scripture and loving words...such a touching momento that I really wanted to share it all with you.  I think it makes such a great gift for so many different purposes.  When I was on bedrest with Sprout, one of my twins Moms friends sent me a package full of index cards with verses on them that really lifted me up.  This is that same concept done so, sew, beautifully.

As is everything with Karen, and all that she does.  Beautiful.

She and her husband adopted a sweet girl 7 months ago and watching her journey from the pre-adoption phase to her "gotcha day" to her girls amazing development because of the love and care of Karen and her husband, is a joyful thing.

Her photos are always so colorful and tell amazing stories.

And she sews...sweet things most often for her daughter.  But she has an etsy shop too.

I know you will fall in love with her story as much as I have.  She is...sew inspiring...in so, sew many ways.  Be sure to hop over to her blog and say hello - tell her I sent you.  She doesn't even know yet that I'm featuring her today!
