It is my husband’s desire that I use a pen name on the internet, and since White is a name from my family tree, I generally use Sharon White. But I also use “Snow White”, so please don’t be confused if you see this in the comments or postings. I have been linked to Snow White for so long that it has become a kind of nickname . Numerous people (even a child as young as five!) have stopped me in public places to say, “Do you know who you remind me of?”, and most of the time I know the answer before it comes out of their mouths! It does not seem to matter what I wear or how long or short my hair is, something about me causes people to think of Snow White (I hope it is not my voice!). It has sort of become a family joke. But in another respect, Snow White is an accurate reflection of who I am. The Bible says in Isaiah 1:18, “though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow”. Since I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior, the Bible assures me that the blood He shed on my behalf has removed from me the stains of my sin, and I can now stand before God “as white as snow”. In this, I am truly “Snow White.” Since I believe that He gave me all the talents that I have, it is my desire to use those talents for Him. I could not do any of the things posted in this blog were it not for Him. 1 Corinthians 10:31 is my goal –-“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God”.
While I have been a crafter in some sort or other all my life, crafting with trash has been a wonderful experience because it has allowed me to work with free materials to create things that my family needs, and it has kept all that trash out of the landfill. I realize that there is not a way for me to up-cycle or re-purpose all the trash that my family can generate, so I still believe in taking the overflow to the re-cycling center, but it is a great thing when I can make something worthwhile out of items that would normally be tossed out. I do not possess the computer skills to create an incredible blog with personalized backgrounds and the latest technological gadgetry so this blog will have to stand on its content. I have no aspirations of building a huge Internet presence! 🙂 My purpose in blogging is simply to share my ideas with others in the hopes that they too will be able to live more frugally and creatively, and to be an encouragement and a blessing to others.
