Exciting News!!!

It has been killing me to not be able to share with the world my most recent news. As some of you know I am terrible at keeping secrets lol. I love inspiring people, it is just something I truly enjoy. So when I decided to start applying for design teams over the summer, it was a series of downs, downs and more downs. I wasn't truly prepared for rejection. I had no idea it would feel much like when I did not make the cheer team in junior high, but like all things, if you strive for it you will make it!! I am super excited to announce that I am part of a brand new team over at Sketches in Thyme... their project life sketch design team!!!! 

For those of you that have been wanting to follow sketches or that are new to project life, as sketches are announced you will be able to see my designs based off those sketches. I hope that they will inspire you to create beautiful things. You will be able to see my first card launch in November <3

A wonderful gift

I received such an amazing gift from an angel the other day. First let me explain the reason for lack of posts lately. I have started working full time. I am just starting to adjust to work life as I have not physically worked outside of my home in over 5 years. It has been a challenge , but we are making it work. A few days ago I had posted one of my hand lettering images on the journal bible group.

I was so excited to share the picture as I have been wanting a journal bible for quite some time. While waiting for the chance to purchase one, a woman messaged me. She wanted to send me a bible. I was shocked and in awe. It was by far one of the greateadt gifts a girl could ask for.

Upon opening my bible I felt lost. Where would I even begin to start? It felt foreign to me, but I knew it was time. Its been time for quite a while now. Like a rebellious little child I was mad at God, mad at what he put me through. Mad at what he put my children through, but in the end he would make me see that it was necessary, that it would make me stronger and open my eyes to a world where I was needed. A world of homeless children and families, men that fought for our country and the elderly that were left in their last days without family. He opened my eyes and helped me to be a voice, a voice for all those less fortunate. And even though , in my weakest times when I could have taken the "easy" way out and gone down a dark path of emptiness and false happiness, he still held me tight and somewhere deep inside the light was shining once again.
