Thirty Years of Being Sarah!

So, it's my Birthday. My thirtieth to be exact. Surprisingly the number hasn't really scared me or made me anxious. Twenty-nine was pretty great, so I have high hopes for my thirties! (1984-1987: Shortly after I was born to my Third Birthday) I have been feeling a little nostalgic though and over the last week I've been combing through old photos. I was having such a great time I decided to scan some from each year of my life and make a little pictorial timeline. I might be the only … [Read more...]

Goal Setting for the New Year

Instead of just jumping right into things this year I've decided to slow down and re-focus during the month of January. With a very busy Holiday season and being out of town for a week, I haven't had the time or head-space to really think about my goals for 2014. But, I received Lara Casey's Powersheets for Christmas (thank you Danielle!), and I've been working on them this past week and hope to finish before the weekend. I love them so far! They are hard work, but can't wait to see how they … [Read more...]

A Little Bit of Christmas Cheer

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday this year. The lights didn't go out on Christmas day, so ours was a little less adventurous than last year's, but still very nice. Sean had to work for a few hours Christmas day, which was kind of a bummer. However, we decided to push back Christmas dinner to 5'ish instead of the usual 1 or 2, which made cooking dinner seem less stressful than it had in years past. Or, it might just have been I have one more year of cooking Christmas dinner … [Read more...]

Welcome 2014!

Don't get me wrong, 2013 was a pretty great year, but I'm really looking forward to 2014. I'm planning on sharing a lot more about my goals for the year throughout the next few weeks, but I'm currently on vacation and am enjoying some much needed family time. So till then, Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for making 2013 wonderful, and stick around for more great things to come in 2014! … [Read more...]

Thanks Apartment Therapy!!!

Woohoo! I was super excited last night when a friend informed me my DIY Paper Mache Fox Head Tutorial was featured in one of Apartment Therapy's recent posts! Above is a more detailed photo of my most recent fox before he went on to his new home. The fox, giraffe and lamb where definitely the most talked about heads at the Art Market. I'm so grateful for all of the positive feedback I've gotten! I'll be working on some new heads over the holidays, so stay tuned for updates on my … [Read more...]

Art Market Awesomeness!

Last Saturday I had a wonderful time at the Elder Street Art Market!  I have gone to this market for the last few years and have always thought to myself, "I should do this."  So, this year I took the plunge and reserved my booth in October.  I think I really decided to do the market after I went to the Influence Conference in September though.  Seeing what others had created and listening to their inspiring stories at the conference helped me stop making excuses and start moving … [Read more...]

T-minus 4 Days Til the Elder Street Art Market

Preparations are going well, but I still have lots to do for the up coming Art Market! Tomorrow, and over the next few days I hope to post some previews of what I'm going to be selling at the Elder Street Art Market here in Houston. First I wanted to share the "Why" behind me doing this art market. This video pretty much sums it up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IN0W3gjnNE 20% of all the proceeds made at the Art Market will be going to Advent Conspiracy that in turn goes to Living Water … [Read more...]

Gifts That Give Back – 2013

The Holidays are here and I've rounded up some of my favorite stores that also give back to others. Over the last year I have found so many new companies selling great products that empower others and finically support some wonderful non-profits. Many of these shops are also having Cyber Monday Sales, so take a look around for some wonderful gift ideas! She Does Justice - Megan over at She Does Justice makes fun accessories for women and children. Each month a different charity or … [Read more...]
