Feels Like Fall

I haven't felt too crafty lately but with fall approaching and the weather changing I'm having that itch.

I bought these lamps below a couple weeks ago and was just going to do some typical burlap lampshades until I was browsing through Pottery Barn and saw the amazing lampshades below.

I adore these lamp shades but definitely do not adore the $40.00 a piece price tag.

I've read online a few different tutorials so I'm going to give it a shot this week.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Rain vs. Shine

It has been way too long my friends....

I apologize for being MIA but I've been overwhelmed with work and life.

I'm not going to lie and say that everything has been great,
but I will say that once you've been in some deep dark valleys the sunshine feels that much warmer.

I've always been a firm believer that everything happens for a reason,
but I know there are days when that is hard to see as a truth.

I have been there...

I have had those dark days when I couldn't see further than the teardrops and pain...

I've had those days where I felt stuck and didn't think I could handle one more thing...

But I've also come through that and am standing and here to say that I am genuinely happy.

There is life beyond the tears,

There is life beyond the pain,

There is life greater than you ever imagined....

I am thankful for the trials,

For without the rain, you can't appreciate the sun...

Cling on, press forward, and look for the rainbow.

I promise there are brighter days ahead.

"I know God will not give me anything I can not handle, sometimes I just wish He didn't trust me so much."
