AncaLogy Update!

Hey everyone! Hope you’re staying warm on this super chilly day today! (However, if you’re in a warmer region right now…I envy you. Not really. Okay, maybe a tiny bit).

🌚 ANYWAY.

I wanted to let you all know that I’ve decided to leave the Etsy platform, and will now be selling any merchandise, product, etc. DIRECTLY from this website now. EXCITING, I KNOW.

Head on over to the new Shop tab! There’s already a few pieces of merch you can purchase that will directly benefit Blankets of Blessings. Other products from AncaLogy will be added at a later date.

I hope you enjoy the new changes, there are more to come! God Bless!

2020 – A New Direction

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to starting the new year and decade off with big dreams and goals!

Speaking of big dreams and goals, Blankets of Blessings will be headed in a new direction for 2020 and beyond. In preparation for this, custom orders for blankets will no longer be accepted. I am also excited to share that AncaLogy and Blankets of Blessings will also be leaving the Etsy platform and migrating any remaining products to this site! Blankets that are made in the future will be donated to efforts that are focused on improving and enriching the lives of the people in their surrounding communities. More information on this is soon to come. If you’ve already placed a custom order before this announcement, your order will be fulfilled by January 10th, 2020. 

While I’m still absolutely working on incorporating Blankets of Blessings as a Nonprofit, I realized that I may have haphazardly started this project. As a result, I am taking a step back and revamping to learn more about various resources that I can utilize to have my project finally come into fruition. This will look like: partnering/volunteering with other Nonprofits that have already been operating, so that I can get a first hand look at how things should be done. It is vital to have a solid foundation when embarking on something like this, and I want to ensure that I am prepared.

On occasion, it is necessary to press pause and/or start over. There’s nothing wrong with starting over (and getting help), especially if it means you’ll be more successful the next time around. The most important thing is to not give up, even more so when you’re passionate about what you’re planning.

Be encouraged, be blessed and don’t stress!

Also, don’t forget, registration for the Confab of Respite opens tomorrow on the site. Looking forward to new connections!

Confab of Respite

Good morning everyone! I have some GREAT news!

Starting on January 23rd, Blankets of Blessings will be hosting its very first IBD Support Group called the “Confab of Respite”

Registration opens up December 28th! Space will be limited to about 10-12 people, so I highly encourage you to register ASAP, especially if you are living with an IBD condition like myself, you’re friends with someone or have someone in your family that has an IBD condition, or you’re taking care of someone with an IBD condition.

This will be a chance to not only learn more about what we experience on a daily basis, as IBD can sometimes be an invisible illness, but also a chance to learn more about how you can become a part of the “CoR” of Blankets of Blessings!

I’m looking forward to seeing new faces and seeing some familiar ones as well. God Bless and Happy Holidays!

Blankets of Blessings

Hello everyone!

I know lately, it’s been pretty quiet around here. More is explained in my other blog post Season of Sacrifice.

There are several changes occurring, including going back to the basics of the original location of my initial website on WordPress. Here I will have separate locations for AncaLogy and Blankets of Blessings. These separate pages will house updates for both entities.


In other more exciting news…

I wanted to officially announce the plans I have for Blankets of Blessings! I have been making preparations to transform Blankets of Blessings into a Non-Profit. My original plan was to have this part completed by the end of the year, and there may still be time God willing, but everything happens in its own time, so I am not rushing anything.

Starting a Non-Profit does of course require the payment of several fees, etc. This is the main reason I’ve been on hold for the past month, especially with just having moved into my new, incredibly humble, but extremely cozy, apartment. Most of my finances had to be diverted to that. I was also dealing with a few, minor health issues, but I am feeling better now!

To assist with the fees I just mentioned, I’ve also applied for a start-up grant, being offered by Buy From a Black Woman. November is their 2019 Buy From a Black Woman Awareness Month!

This grant has served to help many outstanding Black Women kick-start their dreams and propel them to success while making a difference in their communities. I couldn’t have been happier to come across it and apply for it. Whoever receives this grant coming up on the 19th, their Buy From a Black Woman Awareness Day, I pray for prosperity in your endeavors!

Please, please check out Buy From a Black Woman and support them as well!

As I gear back up for the holiday season, please remember that every blanket that is purchased helps to fund Blankets of Blessings’ startup fees, while also supporting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.IMG_1481

Surprise someone with a nice, cozy and warm blanket, the weather is starting to get colder for sure!

Each blanket comes with an optional prayer request should you need prayer for anything. This is indicated by a different color yarn embedded in the blanket.
