I Spy Free Stuff

I spy with my little eye...some gifts for you! Let's get started, shall we?

Bob and I were so in tune with each other this season, we both gave each other this CD for Christmas. Rather than go through the hassle of sending one of them back to Amazon, I thought it would be fun to give the extra one to you! 'Cause you should have this thing! I received other Cd's for Christmas, but I cannot stop listening to this one long enough to pay attention to the others. Michael Gungor and his band have a unique sound. I love their choice of instruments, including a glockenspiel, horns, strings, banjos, a melodica, and a toy piano. And, oh yeah...foot stomping. These people are fun, funky, and they love Jesus. I find the lyrics of their songs floating through my head throughout the day. 

There are some things I want to know about their album picture: What deeply hidden meaning lies behind the rapidly beating wings of the hummingbirds? Do the two hummingbirds in the foreground know that they're not supposed to eat seed? Does the guy in the back know that we can see him slurping the nectar? Is that shirt borrowed? Does he need some Spray 'N Wash?

This is getting really deep. Let's move on. 
I gave these SEEDS Cd's to my kids for Christmas. Please stop and say "SEEDS Cd's" ten times fast. Ready? Set. Go... now stop. You sound like an insect calling for its mate in the summer.

This music is pretty much straight Bible verses, which I love, because it's the easiest way to memorize Scripture. But what I really love about these SEED people, is that the songs are actually enjoyable. They are not verses set to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and "Old MacDonald". We have those already. They serve their purpose, but they do not make you tap your toe, unless you just really dig nursery tunes.

Inside the album, the SEED people tell the story of how God inspired them to create the packaging in such a way that a duplicate copy could be torn off at the perforated crease and given away, further spreading the seeds of God's Word. I just know you must be quite charmed by my stubby finger pointing out the second CD.

Just tear off, and you have two Cd's. Pretty cool! I'm including this extra one in my gift to you. Bible songs are for grown-ups, too!

And that's not all! If you win, you will also receive this pile of fabric scraps! Somebody stop me! This giveaway just got insanely awesome!

I'm just joking.
I actually took that pile of scraps and made this cute little pouch.

AND..it has a back, too! I know, how much more can you take?

Let's pause for a moment and look at this fabric together. What does this mean? Does it mean, "Thumbs down on Mary Poppin. We don't like her. We are superior to her in our umbrella flight skills." Or does it mean, "We are going to fly around the sky until we see Mary Poppin and then scare the daylights out of her by saying boo." If you can't figure this out, you may not deserve this gift. Did that scare you? I'm just joking! I love you! Of course you deserve this gift!

Okay, that's it. Here's my stubby hand putting your Cd's in your cute new bag. It's all ready to mail.

But to whom shall I mail it? Leave me a comment, and it might be you!


  1. Love the Mary Poppin Boo fabric. I was tickled when I thought you were getting rid of scraps, but this pouch is even better.

  2. This might just be the "giveaway" of yours that I would wish for the most! I love the Michael Gungor band & have seen them in person a few times, I love their hearts for the Lord & His People. That Seeds cd my kids would LOVE so if another one of your wonderful friends gets this prize I will have to order it for my kiddies someday! & the bag, well your God given creativity is amazing: probably, no definately- because you mirror an amazing Creator!

  3. Love it all, as always. You are just so creative and fun...I wish we lived closer and could spend more time together. I am not familiar with Michael Gungor, but would be willing to broaden my musical horizons. And the Seeds CD would of course have to go to my grandson.

    Speaking of grandsons and children's music...(See that great transition I did there??), you should go to You Tube and search for the ABC song by the LMNOPs. That is our son-in-law's brother and friends doing kids music that doesn't drive parents crazy. It is way fun.

  4. Me,me,me...mail it to me! Or better yet, give it to me the day after tomorrow when I am at your house cozily sipping hot tea and resting in your chair chatting over the events of the past year. Yeah that sounds better, do that.

  5. Rachelle, love the goodies. btw, hope your hair turned out alright on that bad hair day. :)

  6. Hey I think I know who "anonymous" is and I just want to sit and sip hot tea and chat too. But I do like the Michael Gungor band.

  7. I would LOVE to win this giveaway, not only because I love all sorts of music and enjoy discovering new bands, but because my family is newer to the Christian life and I would love to share that CD with my children who are soaking up Christ everyday in this new life of ours!!! :) Love following your posts!! :)

  8. Rachelle, it's me, your mom. I love you so much! Have I told you that lately? The gifts look awesome!!! What a cute creation you made out of that heap of rumpled, wrinkled scraps. Reminds me of what God does with us! I promise if I win, I will put these things to VERY good use. Bless you!

  9. I love that bag. I love that pig fabric. You sure are a good one. You're so givey. I like that.

  10. Yeah - I'll play as the CD sounds AWESOME! Thanks for sharing your blessings with others. :)

  11. i love what you are doing for others with what God has blessed you with. the world needs more wonderful people like you and your family in it. you and holly are incredibly talented. i wish i had the talent that you have just in your pinkie. Lol. i have a favor to ask of you. i have three wonderful children. two teenage daughters, kelsee(17), breanna(13), and skyler(8). would you please pray for them? you know the song, it's a slow fade? well, im afraid that i am losing them to the world. i pray over them every day but i need extra help. i love them so much. i know God wont start something he wont finish. anyway, i pray Gods blessings on you and your family. keep up the wonderful work for Christ!!!

  12. You are such a nice giver awayer lady! You mail it to me? And I never thought you had stubby hands.

  13. I love children's music as much as adult music. It's the happiest stuff around. And I like children's books pretty much more than I like adult books. Adults are too serious. However, I think my cat prefers adults.

  14. Hey, flakeyjane! Thank you so much for sharing with me and asking me to pray with you. I consider it a privilege. I have been praying for you and your children, and I will continue to do so. Be encouraged that the Lord is leading you as you mother them. "He tends his flock like a shepherd; he gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young." Isaiah 40:11
