Welcome To The Jane Eyre Collection! {a giveaway too}

We launched the Jane Eyre Collection at 5pm MST on Saturday night and the response was amazing!

***

Thank you for loving the new bags and jewelry and for selling out some bags so quickly.

Our collections are about storytelling and the gathering of vintage fabrics, new fabrics, vintage buttons, embellishments and vintage findings for the jewelry is one of the beautiful and exciting parts about offering our two collections a year.

I appreciate so much that we have customers that equally appreciate the attention to detail in each bag and the vintage elements that go into our collections.

I am so excited that our brand new Matilda Art Bag sold out within only 1 1/2 hours!

We will be bringing the art bag back next collection and making sure we have even more to offer next time.

{My seamstresses spend months making each collection and they are already busy working on the next collection (you will flip out over the fabric in the next line)}

After seven years we still make bags because the response is so beautiful to them!

Thank you!

How Are You In The Waiting?

There is one place we are all at again and again in our lives.

You would think with this much practice we would be so much more graceful handling it and learning from it.

No matter your age or where you are at in your life we are constantly in a state of waiting.

Waiting to grow up

Waiting to leave home

Waiting to love someone

Waiting to figure out your calling

Waiting to find the person to spend your life with

Waiting for a relationship to heal

Waiting to have a family

Waiting for a promotion

Waiting to start your own business

Waiting to forgive

Waiting to travel

Waiting to use your gifts

Waiting to say goodbye

The list could go on and on.

What my younger self never understood is that the waiting…is all about getting you ready.

I know so much more about myself and this waiting than I have in the past.

I have known for many years now that there is a calling on my life and I believe it will be in a specific area.

When I look back over the past 7 years of my business I can in hindsight see what each step has prepared me for.

Only through experience, trust and knowing myself and the Lord better do I now know that it hasn’t happened yet because I am not ready yet.

I am in the waiting.

But, aren’t we always?

I trust that when I am ready that the next door will open and that in the waiting I am getting ready for what is next.

In the waiting we don’t need to rush it, get anxious or doubt that we have a path.

Take a deep breath and be ready for it.

Don’t be so anxious and controlling about what is next that you aren’t being present in what can be learned today.
