It’s Our Blog Birthday!!!


Today marks one year since this blog launched!  
Over this past year, I’ve learned so much.
I’ve published over 150 posts sharing about my handmade business, tips for running a business, hosting giveaways, hosting guests, sharing heartbreak, attempting a few projects, using up a bunch of fabric, lamenting about small spaces, purging small spaces, trying to figure out what to eat, vlogging {weirdest word to type ever}, saying a lot of Hello’s and plenty of other stuff too…but my very favorite thing that has happened this year?


“Meeting” you guys.  


This blog is very much intended to be a conversation and not a monologue so the conversations I’ve had with you here or on facebook or instagram or twitter or real life have been the heartbeat of why I write.  Those interactions, whether in private or public, have stirred the passion and desire that God has given me to write so that we can connect on a deeper level.  


{I have big dreams for this space}


So thank you for taking the time to read here.  Thank you for taking the time to comment.  Thank you for sharing a little bit of yourself with me.


A few fun facts:


–the busiest day of this blog’s existence so far was March 25th:  The Launch of My New Line!!! {shop talk}

What a year!  It’s so easy to let yourself go on to the next thing without looking back, but what beauty there is in remembering what God has done!

    Happy day! I’m going to have to go back and read some of those craft posts. its funny ive made a table runner with that but never considered a pillow cover, love that idea!

    Thanks, Jessica! Looking back, I think using a thinner fabric (maybe cotton) is better than the thicker fabric I used. Good luck!
