Three Happy Things

It's a Happy Friday, friends! Super Woman didn't show up and I wasn't able to have the Christmas Open House I hoped to host today, but my heart has been so encouraged by three things that have happened since my last post.

Here are my three happy things:

1. A fresh eucalyptus wreath for my studio door to replace the rotting fall decor I showed you in the last post. And one more hanging on my kitchen armoire for now:

The sweetest part: Scherry (who I met here) sent her daughter to deliver these to me since I was too overloaded with work to leave my studio (which always happens this time of year). An unexpected blessing for sure. I didn't even know she was coming!

2. This dream card client and very talented interior designing friend has texted me several times a day for the last few days telling me about all the rave reviews she's receiving on her card.

{I hope you like my little vignette, Jenny J!}

I seriously LOVE this card!

My goal is always for my clients to love their cards, but when their friends and family fall in love, it's really excites my clients...and blesses me to hear about it! Thank you, sweet Jenny, for sharing your excitement with me. It has totally energized me as I try to give my all to these last few clients!

3. Help from a stranger and help from a friend. A Sweet Reader of my last post (someone I don't even know...amazing!) emailed me with this:

Now if that isn't God providing in unexpected ways, I don't know what is! Today, I'm letting her go to the grocery store for me, which is especially important because I have a sick child. Thank you to my newest friend! And a huge thank you to a sweet friend who is shopping for some little Advent calendar goodies for my girls even as I write this! Amazing grace.

Happy Friday to you, Sweet Readers!


  1. Ahh, you sound so much less stressed! Amazing grace, indeed! Your wreaths & home look lovely too. And the card!!! THE CARD!!! Oh my, it is beautiful. If I could afford you I would! Have a great weekend!

  2. i never had one doubt that the card would be rock star, but all the calls and emails about the card was overwhelming!! never never never received so many compliments on my christmas card...NEVER! You are so awesome...i can barely stand it!!

  3. Love the card!

    And what a sweet surprise from a new friend. God is so good!

  4. Nothing like making a new friend.....who comes to the rescue!

  5. wow. you know i am not really a commenter...but i cried for some reason at this post! could be the seriously misaligned night of sleep (or lack of) last night, but how HUMBLING! that is very sweet. people are good. i am continually convinced of that.

  6. You get what you give.
    YOU give us the love in all your posts.
    And honor God in all you do.
    Therefore, "friends" come out of the woodwork.
    Or Blog World. Isn't blogging the bomb?
    So glad you are able to relax.
