Keep These Commandments On Your Hearts

Deuteronomy 6:5-9 says:  "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.  These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.  Impress them on your children.  Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.  Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.  Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates."

When our friend Sharron ordered two of these 5x7 wooden plaques, one for beside her front door and one for beside her back door, we realized that this would be a great way to surround yourself with God's Word.  Misty still has in her memory every Bible verse that was on wall art in her childhood home, because she looked at them so often.  We hope you will want to surround yourself and your family with scripture in this way too!                       

We would love to put whatever scripture you want on a 5x7 plaque for you.  For information on prices please e-mail us at willowway

Whooo Pig Soooie!!

We are Arkansans and enjoy rooting for the Razorbacks especially during football season!  These little pigs are cute embroidered on baby clothes or on tea-stained muslin and framed.


This onesie is shown with a hat, 
but bibs 
and burp-cloths 
are also 
available.  Our 
are newborn 


We thought we would break out the sewing machine and make some pillows!  These pillows are burlap on one side, a fun fabric on the other, with matching yarn balls on the edge.  The above pillow patterns are (from the bottom) "Red," "Girl," "Cowboy," and "Yellow."


If you have any questions about colors or pricing please e-mail us at willowway handicrafts@

Don't Rush Me

We like to put things off till the last minute, thus the quote on this canvas!  If you have a quote you would like put on canvas we would be glad to customize one for you.


Below is a close-up of a design we embroidered on a pink baby onesie.


 A few weeks ago we created "Antique Trees."  This is the same piece customized for a friend, who requested art with earthtones and a little orange.

If you like this, we would love to make one for you
in your own color choices.


Our friend's spring baby shower was bird themed of course!  Trees adorned with long ribbons and bird ornaments stood on the tables and created a whimsical atmosphere.

We spray painted branches white and used white
sand to stand them up in glass cylinder vases. 

These are the birds that hung on the branches at the baby shower.   After the party we made them into a garland and the new mom hung the "Bird Garland" over her baby's crib.  (See earlier post entitled "We Love Canvas Art!)
