welcome to 2015! a hope-filled year, for sure!

Hope2

Right now, I'm listening to my youngest two children singing as loud as they can in the kitchen while they bake together!

This sound is a frequent one in my house. And it reminds me of how thankful I am that I take some time to listen…really listen to what is going on around me. 

This past December, I chose to listen, look, and think about the little things in my life. And this was a huge blessing from the Lord. It was the first year in many, many years that I had more time to invite people over for parties, to sew a LOT more than usual in December (you'll see the results of that soon!!), and to just hang with the fam and in the man cave with Mr Gorgeous. 

It was glorious!!

Our crafting focus is changing around here a little…so don't be surprised when you see a lot of wedding-y crafts here!
