Half full, always

I’ve toyed with the idea of sharing our Christmas décor sooner, but right now my house is covered with flooring, padding and wooden trims.

Yup. We are about to redo our floors, and to top it off there were signs of termite, so our terminator pulled some of the trim around our french doors and they found a new home in the middle of the tv room.

It’s a dream come true.

But now that the time is coming to take my decor down I refused to let it go before documenting it.

That’s called a glass half full..

And it wasn’t that full at the end of 2014. So I’m thinking there was some improvement done, right?

Here are some snipets of our home, decorated for the most wonderful time of the year.

I loved how I was able to use some of my art to decorate our house. It warms my heart when I see all the decor out and I see how much love went into creating all of these pieces.

I can’t wait to get into all the renovating downstairs, and to see the final piece. Let’s hope I can say I stayed Half-full minded throughout the process..

Each Lovely Thing

Sorry about the cobwebs, and quietness around these parts.

There have been some great things in motion that I’m super excited to share with you. As of the past week, each lovely thing became it’s own thing.

It’s no longer just my personal blog. I’ve prayed, studied and thought over and over about where I wanted this brand to go. About what I really wanted to do with my life. It started as a thought, it became reality when I created this blog, and after so much encouragement, thought, time, and love, I’m so very happy and proud to show off the fruits of our labor.

Yes, our. This place was built initially by me, but without my husband’s, family and friend’s contribution this would not truly have happened. You guys are amazing, each and every single one of you.

This dream of mine is only possible because of your faith in me. Because of the love and care that you have given me. Thank you for keeping up with me and my blog through my other social media outlets, and for your support.

So, in this mindset, I present to you the new and improved each lovely thing site. I hope you stick by me as I unfold this dream of mine, and I appreciate your support, as always.

To celebrate this step (and my birthday week) I’m giving you a 15% off promo code! When  you buy at least $20 in products you can take 15% off of your total! Just use the promo code LAUNCH15!

Thank you for all your love and support! I can’t wait to see where this dream of mine takes me!

Encouragement is key

Life is made of trials. Life is made of choices, and you hope you pick the right one for you and your family, if you at all have a choice.

When it came down to which path to take, I’ve been very, very blessed to have so many encouraging voices around me. A family that cares for me, our struggles, and most of all, loving voices that support our choices and guide us through our journey.

And I’ve needed a lot of guidance.

I’ve been feeling “out of it” lately. There’s not much I do when that happens. I have no inspiration, no energy, no willpower. I go to work, come home exhausted, watch tv, go to bed.

By day 3, the hubs sat down with me.

He held my hand, looked into my eyes and asked me to share the burden. Asked me to open up, share my struggle, find some peace.

He listened, he heard me. And he gave me what I needed most: encouragement.

I never realized how much I need his support. How much his encouragement and having him on my team matters to me. And I thank God every day ( I truly do) for giving me the chance to share a life with this guy.

Plus our amazing friends also have our back, and it’s funny how much encouragement comes from the most unexpected places too. I am so very thankful for all the love and support I’ve gotten lately.

And just like that my energy came back. That fire within me started burning bright and my passion for art and lettering was increased ten fold. I am stepping out of my comfort zone, and trying to work with mediums and techniques I haven’t used as often.

And can I confess..

 

I’m loving it!

 

I don’t know where that will take me, or if there’s a future there at all. But I am having a blast connecting with my inner creativity and letting my passion flow through my pen + brush.

So if you have a minute, please check back to my shop and check out the new items. It means the world to me. And I’m very thankful for each of you for your support.
