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 :)

on embracing disappointment

sometimes it's the hardest thing we'll ever do to pause our ever-moving-forward agendas long enough to see another person. to have compassion and grace and understanding for them, especially when it interferes with our desires, when it means laying down our own needs in order to meet theirs.

our own motives and our own agendas can feel so important and forefront, so that moment of yielding to someone else can feel almost impossible. like a death of sorts.

because you know what? it hurts to die to self. it just does, no matter how insignificant it may seem to an onlooker.

but i'm learning to embrace all of the emotions that come with disappointments like this, not to ignore them or feel shame for experiencing them (probably the hardest part for me). to feel them, acknowledge them, let them sit there while i figure out the next right thing.

it's hard work to live in the tension of wanting to be healthy and magical and able to live above the waves - while still being very…

here and there

ah, the joys of spray painting. i literally have a hundred picture frames. i've just collected them over the years. usually black or some sort of dark metallic. but since that doesn't really fit my decor style anymore, i'm embracing the spray painting addiction trend that's taking hold of the [mostly blog] world. my husband thinks i'm nuts, until i place everything back into the house and he loves me again because it looks perfect. i even spiritualized spray painting/repurposing here. yes, i really did.

this is my little bookshelf. given to me by my mom. the corkboard is from Homegoods. the other items i've had for years [except the lantern which is a $1 Goodwill find, painted black]. the "a" holds up my books, "j" holds my husband's, and "r" holds my daughter's. she knows that she can only touch her shelf but she always talks about ours. 
i'm thinking i should probably replace the two-moth old baby shower invitation with…

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 …
