instafriday

since i didn't do this last week, i have a few extra photos this time around. hope that's ok :)

a package sent off to a lovely customer. a wreath. 
this is how i gift wrapped it for her. it's not the normal way i package things. 
cute, but it would get pricey with all that lace.


i quite enjoy this little corner of my kitchen, don't you? 
also, i'm obsessed with owls. they are everywhere in my house.


this is how my daughter's 6-week old sparkly toms are holding up...
at least a pair of shoes went to a child in need
hopefully they're better quality than these!


in case you missed it, i've been working on some new products.
if you're a creative type, you know what i mean when i say i stayed up at night dreaming of this.
and immediately the next day i had to try it.
and, unlike most projects i try, it turned our cuter in real life!


its sister hoop


a little pinterest inspiration. originally i pinned this lamp
but then i thought how cute it would be on canvas.
so i tried it. and i love it! for the new big girl's room :)


i made some homemade bread. inspired by the nester.
i used this recipe. honestly it's pretty good. the loaf wasn't huge but it was tasty.
i felt very domestic.


here's my collection of frames that are currently unused. 
if you read my last post, you know i have plenty of ideas on how to use these babies.
so i'm banning myself from buying any more frames until these are used.


this is my sweet girl, who wipes her face and hands after every bite. 
i love it. 


drawing trains with chalk while mommy spray paints. looks like a good day to me!


these are my favorite shoes. i've had them for probably 4 years, got them at target, 
and still love them a lot. they look really neon in this photo, but they're mustard.


doesn't really need a caption:

well there you have it! 
have a good weekend friends.
mine will be filled with the Queen Bee Market.
i'm not selling anything, but i just can't stay away.
i plan to go friday night and saturday morning :)

hope spoken 2014 | a little recap

well. it feels weird to be back here in this space. i haven't regularly blogged for over a year. i'm feeling like it's time for a redesign but that's beside the point. i'm really here to tell you about Hope Spoken conference that i attended in dallas 2 weekends ago. everyone has been saying how they need time to process everything. i'm no exception. what i'm about to share is really an email i wrote to casey and danielle a few days after i got home, but i've edited and expanded a little. there is still so much more in my heart and mind that's not quite ready to come out:

i'm finally sitting down to pour out my heart after such an amazing weekend. the first thing that's hitting me is these three girls went with a dream and a mission and a calling from Jesus, and were brave to walk through the door and keep going, as danielle describes it. i'm sure they imagined how beautiful it would be but i don't think they could have imagined just …

the idol self-sufficiency

"O God of mine, I'll have no idols..." played over Pandora. "O God of Mine", an old song by Rita Springer, is a beautiful hymn-like melody with soothing vocals and peaceful piano music. deep in thought, as i always am, i was struggling with feelings of fear and shame that had been pulling me under the last few months. i'm determined to be free from its grip, so i'm digging in to find the roots and i'm arming myself with Truth and with practical tools. as that phrase sang form the speakers, it just flickered across my mind -- the idol of self sufficiency. i had never named it before, but i finally understood it as a huge aspect of my struggle with fear and a huge aspect of the burden of shame that i carry. (i wrote a little bit about that here)

now you're thinking i must be a planner, a doer, and get-things-done kind of gal. you're thinking i must run a pretty tight ship, i must be type-A.

and you'd be wrong. self-sufficiency is a idol f…

because He became a man

recently i had one of those days where my to-do list consisted of six different super-quick errands. seems simple enough to most people. before kids you could knock them all out in less than an hour and go about your day. but with kids, forget about it. you dread the outing for two days and put it off until you have no more food or toothpaste and your husband is wondering about the dry-cleaning and the alterations.

when you have to strap and unstrap three kids into their carseats for six different super-quick errands, it's a whole new kind of monster. it takes longer to get them in and out of the car than the amount of time we actually spend inside the post office, or the dry cleaner, or the bank. multiply that by six and we're all going crazy.

truly, there needs to be a drive-through dry cleaner, drive through full-service post office window, drive through banking (not just ATM but actually denominations-other-than-twenty banking), and a drive-up pre-order Target service woul…
