A small life update

Thanks so for all your comments on my party. I hope to have more pictures sometime soon.

So a few things are happening in my life right now. I don't really get into too much detail because I don't think I'm comfortable enough sharing really intimate details of my life. Although I do divulge more in personal emails and letters.

Here's a small life update...

♥ My oldest brother got remarried at the registry office yesterday! They will have a ceremony later on in the year.
♥ My new nephew Micah will be born towards the end of this month! So I will be an aunty for the third time!
♥ Jason's car got side swiped (by a truck we presume) while it was parked at the train station. It's not worth fixing as it's really old but we were wanting to get a new car by mid year. Instead we have to get one now (and I will be able to drive it at least since we will get an automatic - looking at a Mazda 3)
♥ I really need a new job because I'm getting no hours at my current job and it's making it difficult to do anything.
♥ Trying not to get all the negative things get me down so I'm holding onto God even more (and I feel it's a test of faith at the moment).
♥ Heartened by all the encouraging thoughts and messages I receive.

And I'm finally making items for my shop again. Concentrating on making things keeps me focused.

I haven't decided how I will use these. On a headband but maybe a thicker elastic one or a hard headband? 

A few with my new fabric. 

A new lot with coloured skinny elastic headbands. 

I hope you like them. I might have a shop coupon code soon once I start putting more things back into the shop. 

Have a wonderful rest of week.

Hi Gracie!! First of all, very sorry to hear about the truck and the job. It sucks either way, but I hope something good comes out of it all.

Secondly, your yummy etsy items look fab and I am going to check out more as soon as I am done typing this.

And last but not least... your Wonderland Party looks amazing!! I love that first photo and your dress is divine. You look gorgeous as always, and you did such an amazing job on the decorations. Loving all the wonderful little details!!

Sweet Gracie, I really hope that things get easier for you soon! They always do, but sometimes it's hard to be patient. And you should know how much I love my valentine's headband I ordered from you. :)

Good luck with the new old car, and I hope you are able to find a new job quickly.

Congratulations to your brother!

That sucks about Jason's car. Did they leave a note or anything? I guess the upside is, you'll have a car you can drive soon!

Love the new stuff for your shop!
