Part one of our recent trip to Haiti. I don’t have words to describe how wonderful this trip was. More coming on the work we did during the two weeks there. Just a few shots of some of my favorite memories.

Peace

This year has wrecked me in every way. By far the hardest and equally most incredible year of my life. I feel as if I’ve been turned upside down, emptied and filled back up. I’m stronger and more content than I ever could have imagined. Although circumstance consistently seem bleak I know faith more intimately with each passing day.

My life is the most tragically beautiful story of grace I’ve ever seen written. Words can’t express the gratitude in my heart.

All the blessings to you this holiday can offer my friends!

I’m so excited to be announcing a collaborative project with my dear friends and founders of Fait La Force. It’s been in the makings for a few months now. I met Josh and Chandler through social media and was for obvious reasons really drawn to their story and work. Many emails and skype calls later the boys and I will be traveling to Haiti next month. I will be working with a small group of ladies they employ to help teach some sewing technique and some of my own pattern/designs.

To kick off our brands working together Madewell has graciously agreed to hosting two trunk show events for us!

Thursday, Decmber 19th 6-9pm
Madewell at the Domain
Austin, TX

Friday, December 20th 6-9pm

stay close to natures heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. wash your spirit clean.

-John Muir

wow wow wow wow wow wow wow. BLESSED HUMBLED and GRATEFUL have been the most frequently used words since monday. my heart is so full and overwhelmed.

SOLD OUT is the theme over on my new shop. I wasn’t planning on a restock till the first of NEXT month. rethinking my strategy currently while I fill orders for all my special pieces. hoping to have some new things up in the next few weeks.

(bitter) to see all these labors go out my door. (sweet) to think of all the projects to come…

photos were taken by my incredibly supportive friend Whitney at Whitney Neal Photography

a MILLION thanks to you who have supported in any way.

I’m speechless.
