Pillowcases with a purpose.

I have thoroughly enjoyed making and sharing scrap banners with this sweet little IG/FB and blog community over the past two months. Y'all are great! I will continue to sell scrap banners in my shop and take custom orders time to time but I want to share with you a new little crafting journey that I am about to embark on and would love for you to come along with me. My mom and I are now creating standard size pillowcases that are completely inspired by and in memory of a friend. Her name is Sara. After a long battle with cancer- multiple surgeries, hospital stays, chemo treatments, hair loss and pain- she went home to be with her Savior.  Sara was PURE joy. Throughout her battle, she wanted God's love to be shown through her.  During her frequent stays at UCSF Medical Center, one way she chose to serve those around her was to deliver fun pillowcases to children that were spending the majority of their time in bed.  I want to remember the joyful sweetness that she radiated, so for every three pillowcases I sell, one will be delivered to children at Seattle Children's hospital. Sara inspires me and I hope her story can continue to spread joy and love; one pillowcase at a time.

 More pillows will be in the shop next week! {the olive grove shop}

the olive grove shop

I don't have much time to post let alone get a shower in these days (though I do miss blogging and hope to be back at it in due time)! The story of my life these days. So, I will keep this short as I have one kiddo down for a nap, one jumping on the couch and one about to make his way home from school. I have been busy creating a little shop on etsy and selling fabric banners and about to dive into pillow making (I'll be back with more details on that!). I have thoroughly enjoyed crafting and creating and meeting a sweet little community of momma crafters! Here is the link to my shop: THE OLIVE GROVE SHOP ...and some fun pictures from our little photo shoot by my friend Cassie at Simply Cherished Photography. Stay tuned for more!

Capri Isla

She goes where I go. She does as I do. She eats what I eat. She delights in touching my eyelashes. She watches me blow dry my hair. She finds comfort in sitting on my lap. She celebrates laughter with squeals and flapping of her arms. She hums along with my singing. She is a bringer of joy to this home of ours. She is incredibly loved. She is my daughter Capri, the sweetest little thing I ever did meet.

the E.Conlee's

Sometimes you are so blessed in this life that you have friends that become like family. Friends that know exactly how to love you. Friends that will take your children off your hands because you are on the verge of a mommy meltdown. Friends that will not only take your kids but feed them, explore the outdoors with them and take pictures of them and then give them freely. These friends are precious to us. They are auntie and uncle status in our books. We love you Emily and Eli!...and miss you dearly.
