February’s 30 Acts of Kindness Roundup!

This month I had fun doing my acts of kindness during National Random Acts of Kindness Week. I started out the week with a Starbucks treat for my Instagram and Twitter friends. I had seen some others do this before and thought it was a great idea. All you have to do is purchase a gift card, register it online with the Starbucks App, and then take a screen-shot of the barcode. Then post that screen shot on Instagram and you can gift coffee to your friends across the country! I really … [Read more...]

Random Acts of Kindness Week!

Next week, February 10th through the 16th, is Random Acts of Kindness Week. What a great opportunity for me to work on my 30 Acts of Kindness! I heard about RAOK week over at Lil Blue Boo. I just love what she and her daughter did last year to spread joy and kindness in their community. Head over to her site to see the awesome video of what they did. Need some more ideas? Here are some of my favorite sites I've found that are inspiring me to act in kindness! Check out these 26 … [Read more...]

January’s 30 Acts of Kindness Roundup

This month I purposed to do two acts of kindness. First I decided to write thank you notes! There have been many people in my life that have loved, encouraged, or pushed me, molding me into the person I am today. I often think of them in certain situations and am filled with gratitude for the time they invested in me. But, rarely do I get the chance to tell them. So instead of just thinking about how thankful I am for their influence in my life, I decided to write them thank you letters. … [Read more...]

30 Acts of Kindness

One of my goals for this year is to be more deliberate in serving others. Turning thirty, going through old photos, and being nostalgic has really reinforced how blessed I am. There have been many times when others have done small (and big) things that have made my day and brought me so much joy. I really want to share those same things with others. So, I have to decided to decree this Sarah's 30 Acts of Kindness year! I was just going to make it 30 acts of kindness for the month … [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...]

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...]

More Gratefulness!

I just finished my third week of practicing daily gratitude and it's amazing how I've started to look for the good in my everyday life. I've always been blessed and I thought I was good at recognizing it, but I feel even more cognizant of it now. Little details, small moments and big gestures, they are filling my life more joy now that I am looking for them. Here's the run down on #GratefulNovember week 3! Day 15 Last weekend was full of photography sessions and the weather … [Read more...]

A Grateful November Update

I'm so glad I decided to take the #GratefulNovember challenge. Some days I feel thankful for practically everything, and other days I have to dig deep. But, the longer I practice, the easier it is to be filled with gratitude! Day 8 I'm grateful my in-laws take the time to schedule dinner dates with us! It's always nice to share a meal and catch up with them. Day 9 Sean and I both have busy evening schedules right now, so it's nice when we can both slow down and relax … [Read more...]
