The Macs

Tuesday, December 15, 2009


I just posted a few more Christmas items (sorry it is not much).
If you order today, I will get your order in the mail tomorrow morning.

We were hoping to post one more time before Christmas, but it is not looking like that will happen.
We have some great new stuff in the works...
Look for it sometime in late January after Baby Mac is born!

Hello. I got one of your barrettes in the past for my friend who has a daughter and I love it!

Btw I know this is totally random and you have no clue who I am but I told my same friend (who is pregnant with another little girl) about your blog in a passing conversation. And she loved the name Cora and she is naming her daughter that. :)

Hi Jess, it has been awhile since I commented last, but I wanted to just share this. I know that it is somewhat out of context as Jesus was preparing his Diciples for His death. But, I hope and pray that this birth will help to rejuvenate your soul, and bring you gladness that no one can take away from you. Much the same as the gladness you feel knowing that one day you will be reunited with your precious Cora.

When a woman is about to give birth she is sad because her hour of suffering has come; but when the baby is born she forgets her suffering because she is happy that a baby has been born into the world. That is how it is with you; now you are sad, but I will see you again and your hearts will be filled with the kind of gladness that no one can take away from you [John 16:21-221
This has nothing to do with Etsy... BUT I was reading my bible last night and after I read this verse, I thought of you... I prayed for you and Joel and precious baby Mac.
What must birth seem like to babies? Their world is dark, but safe and secure. All of their needs are filled automatically; they are cushioned from shock and prevented from feeling pain. If they were given a choice, they would probably choose to stay right where they are, in the warm, watery environment which is familiar and safe to them.

But one day they feel their world caving in. The walls begin to push and crowd them into the birth canal and for the first time they feel pain and know fear. Then after the pain comes light, and children are received into the world by comforting hands and given into the loving care of their mothers and fathers, who have been waiting for them, expecting them, hoping for them.

Perhaps death is like that. Perhaps birth -- death -- life, -- the past -- present -- future are all twined together in the intricate web which is our hope. Our hope is in the one who gives life, takes away life, and gives new life. Our hope is that one day we will be born -- again -- into the very life of God.

I missed this round of goodies again, but I'm hopeful to pick one up in the next round whenever that might be. I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers this holiday season.

I think my Molly will be 12 by the time I can get ANYTHING for her!!

Maybe, you can do a random number generator and choose a few people to get first pick every time you post.

I think I have better odds that way :)

Ummmmm, Trasie Bressler is using naughty words on your blog!

I'm telling.

LOL! They are all funny.

But they are also correct.

My granddaughters will be grown if I don't move a lot faster.

Or check in sooner in the day.

Or just plain sit here, day in and day out, hour after hour, waiting for your post in January!


Ah well.

I was able to snag one of your OH SO CUTE Christmas skirts for my little girl the last time around, and I have to tell you, she adores it!

Can't wait until you put up more, as we have just discovered that I am expecting and would LOVE some of those burpies!

hey, it's tiffany, i was cora's nurse at wesley when she was admitted. i just want you to know that you guys have touched so many lives, and that we just lost a little boy a couple of weeks ago and i referred his parents to your blog for comfort and guidance. i sure hope it helps them. i'm not an overly religious person but i want you to know that your blog brings me peace when life is hard, which i always think is a gift from cora as well as God. we all think of you at wesley and are so excited for baby mac! god bless you guys!

Darn! I would love to get a Cora's item to have for one of my children. My daughter will soon outgrow your usual sizes. You and your mom make beautiful pieces!

I suppose we should cut you some slack since Baby Mac is coming soon, but I agree with Trasie...Poop Stain! Tee hee....

I love all of your items and think you are doing such an amazing job! You are truly an extraordinary woman making all of these dresses and such after your precious and sweet little angel Cora went to heaven. I pray for you and your family daily and am so excited for the arrival of your second bundle of joy in January! Cora is going to be such an amazing heavenly big sister and you and Joel are wonderful parents!

God Bless you all!
