I got some awesome Father’s Day card ideas on this page but I liked too much of them so I decided to make a special keepsakes box big enough to fit a lot of pages with lots of different messages. The kids had already made Dad special match boxes at a play group we attend so I thought I’d make it big enough to fit different kinds of objects. This project was so much fun and the kids loved it too!   Read the rest of this entry

Guest Post by Alise from Papilio Prints

Everybody has that one piece of fabric that’s connected too emotionally to throw away yet too old to be worn. They are mostly stacked at the bottom of the dresser drawers or in the darkest corners of the wardrobes, where it is most likely to be never seen again.

Holding on to clothes that we do not use prove to be a complete waste if one doesn’t believe in donating or selling them. So let’s bring out the old pieces of fabric and try some crafts.

Below are the most practical and innovative ways to transfigure a Read the rest of this entry

I got this awesome shirt from In The Gap Clothing for my son and I love it! Local is surely lekker and to top that, this is a growing family business to watch!

Wearing Christian clothing is not everyone’s cup of tea but for some people it can be a great opportunity to share their faith and answer questions around the clothing they wear. It can be a whole ministry field on your way to work or at the shops. I think its awesome!

About In the Gap:

“Well,  it all started with a dream. When my husband awoke one morning with several designs still in his mind, he realized that the dream of printing Christian t-shirts was from God. More than a year later (in God’s perfect time) the opportunity came to start our Christian Clothing Company and countless details fell into place within a matter of weeks. We were amazed at our King, knowing that this step and the timing was from Him.

In the Gap Clothing is situated in Mossel Bay, South Africa, and we seek to design and distribute quality Christian clothing aimed at promoting Kingdom life.”
