My Holiday Home Pt.1

First off I must confess what a bad blogger I've been(but you knew already). I've been working like a mad woman(gleefully mad) on new projects and getting ready to go to the 
Dallas Market next month.
Come take a peek at part#1 
of my holiday home...
This is my dining room, its my very favorite room in the whole house. I hope you enjoy your visit.

I will post part 2 soon. 
Have a sugar plum filled day!

Loved More Than You Know

My sweet friend Julie told me about about a book she is reading, "Grace: More than we deserve, greater than we imagine" by Max Lucado. So I thought I would take a peek at it. 

I have to admit there are so many sticky sweet books out there regarding the Christian walk that I had a bit of skepticism....But I must be honest with you and with myself. I only got a few pages in before I was suddenly taken (again) with the power of God's grace and how incredibly small I am. It touched so deep within my very soul that I had to stop reading it. You know why? 1. It scared me and 2. because Max Lucado gets it, its raw. He doesnt wrap up how hard it is to be human in this world (whether you are a believer or not) in a bunch of empty faith filled words. You know the kind, youve heard them before from well meaning friends even your pastor. But they leave you empty and hopeless feeling as though youve missed the mark yet again. Not this book. Its refreshing to know that we are all in the pressure cooker together, trying to navigate our way through life doing the best we can *and* we are all H.U.M.A.N.! God is big enough to deal with it all and more-so with each of us right where we are. We are enough, you are enough, I am enough. Say it to yourself, "I am enough". But it gets even better...God loves you right where you are. In the midst of your own personal storm. Ive been in one for months, like a boat on the ocean in the middle of a small craft warning, the waves are crashing over my head and Im bailing with a bucket that has holes. I used to have a boat and have been out during a small craft warning, its not pretty! But then again, in so many ways life isnt pretty. Its hard. Damn its hard. Ive always wanted to be bluntly honest about how I see things no matter how unpopular my take may be. Im finding that when I am honest its much better received than a candy smile. Do you remember those big wax lips from the early '70's? Thats is precisely the fake candy smile I mean!

Take heart precious ones, you matter and you are greatly loved.

Boo to you!

What started out as a nice walk around Balboa Island with my 
sweet friend Debi Ward-Kennedy  turned nothing short of creepy!

Really, we're here for lunch, that's it! (what is that on the bench watching us?)

Ive got the creeps, something isn't quite right!
So we left!
And then I came back to explore a bit more, in the D.A.R.K.
I shouldn't have, I knew better!
The monsters were out....

I was invited to stay for a drink...I'll pass...
I think it's past my bedtime...
So I high-tailed it outta there and 
hid under the covers!

A Perfectly Inspired Day!

On Sunday afternoon I had the sheer pleasure of meeting with some of my fabulous panelists  at the fabulous French Garden House.
I have to say that this event is shaping up to be nothing short of amazing! The women that will be presenting are the most inspirational, kind, generous, savvy, strong and brilliant group you can imagine. Each so willing to share and inspire.
Jenny Doh, Tara Wilson, Sharon Hughes, Lidy Baars, Deb Kennedy and Cheryl Turner
Beth Livesay
The day was filled with laughter and wisdom as only this group could dish! A few of the speakers were not able to join us and were so missed! 

Don't miss the event next April, tickets are already selling and seating is limited.

Register here NOW!
