Soaps and Such By Katrina
I like snow days for several different reasons. The most important reason is that each time it snows and it is so clean and pristine it reminds me that when I asked JESUS into my life and HE SAVED ME that he also WASHED ME AS WHITE AS THE SNOW. No good in me but all that I am is BECAUSE OF HIM.
Another reason I like the snow is because GOD creates beautiful art and none can compare to the beauty of fresh fallen snow and the quiet solitude that it brings. The covering which makes all things look new and undisturbed. Which is where I desire to be in my Christian walk---ever aware of the greatness of God and the awe of that still small voice, while discovering the new blessings that he showers into my life every hour of every day.
Then last it brings me to a place within myself where I am focused and productive to the planning needed to work and process business ideas for new projects and patterns. This quiet solitude and beauty can really stir up the thinking process.
So as you can see I like the snow because I realize it comes from my Heavenly Father and he knows what is best for me and for the land. I consider it one of HIS BLESSINGS and I choose to enjoy it.

With that being said...These patterns and their photos are property of Hoyle's Son-Shine Greenhouse and More and www.hoylesoaplantstitchery.com and are intended for personal use only. Please do not copy, sell or reproduce these photos or these patterns in any way. We THANK YOU for your support, encouragement and respect shown to us and our products.
Just in case you did not know, we thought that we would share with you our growth from 2007 until 2014. Our business has grown to include several categories and we are super excited about this growth. We are known as HOYLE'S SON-SHINE GREENHOUSE AND MORE and our website address is a descriptive summary of what this includes. We are made up of 4 sub-categories which includes: Breads By Katrina...Soaps By Katrina...Plants by Katrina and Stitchery By Katrina. As you can tell from the titles I manage to stay very busy. And if you know me personally then you know that I am OCD about organization and planning. I read a book by a successful person who I thought offered some great advice to every breathing human being. Here is a quote from that book. "If you are going to DREAM, you are going to have to put some WINGS on those dreams, and some FEET and some FINGERS and some HANDS. You can't just sit around and THINK of all the things you WANT TO DO and expect success to come to you." written by Dolly Pardon
2014 was a wonderful year for us. We managed to stay connected with our customers while adding new customers to our growing list of friends. We are most THANKFUL to our Lord for his many blessings, protection and providence. We are also THANKFUL to each one of our customers for your continued support and encouragement. Your friendship and support is what keeps us going year after year. Thank You again and we look forward to seeing you soon as we continue to travel this pathway called life and continue to grow and improve the business of HOYLE' SON-SHINE GREENHOUSE AND MORE that the Lord has so richly blessed us with.
As we sit and reflect back over the events of 2013 we are amazed with how our business has grown and the blessings that the Lord has showered on us. At this time we would like to say Thank You Lord for your blessings on us and Thank You to our customers who supported us throughout the year. We could not do what we do without the Lords guidance and direction and you our customers. We want to say THANK YOU AND HAPPY NEW YEAR to each one of you. We look forward to seeing you in 2014 at the Historic Marion Tailgate Market and at local events in McDowell and surrounding counties. From Hoyle's Soap Plants and Stitchery to you...God Bless Each One of You in 2014.
