If you want to be happy, be. ~Leo Tolstoy

Today is a day of announcements.

Or rather, one very exciting announcement that I am beyond delighted to share with all of you.

And it's all because of God.

In all honesty, I've had a really rough week so far. It's been a complicated couple of days, flooded with a lot of emotions that I despise.

I feel as though I'm being tested...refined...pruned from something simple into something great by His hand.

It hurts. But it's worth it, in the long run. This much I can assure you.

This morning, He turned my mourning into dancing, and my tears into fountains of joy.

This morning, He gave me love most abundant...and He answered a long-awaited prayer.

Because of the glory of God, and the love of my amazing followers and supportive friends, I am overjoyed and thrilled to announce...

...DramaticElegance's "Inspired Monthly Giveaways."

My delight knows no bounds at this moment.

Each month, we are going to have a new giveaway featuring an amazing Etsy shop, some beautiful items, and ways for you all to receive these amazing gifts straight from the hearts of these incredible artists.

Each one will run from the first to the second-to-last day of the month, and the giveaway winner(s) will be announced on the last day of the month...obviously pending any major life-issues that might get thrown into my path at that point.

If you know someone, or if you yourself would like to see your Etsy shop featured in a monthly giveaway, contact me for more information. Also, if you have any feedback, words of wisdom, or just have any questions whatsoever, don't hesitate to ask.

I cannot wait to see where God continues to take this family and beautiful followers...and my life as His daughter.

Today is a lovely day.

The grey clouds are parted, the joy is rising.

The dream has ended...and this is the morning.

Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne


  1. Sounds like fun!!! (and that picture at the top...xD We must have been on Weheartit around the same time. I saw that one and immediately made a header with it. It's totally going up on my blog as soon as I get tired of the one I have now.)

  2. I love love LOVE this! And you!! I'm praying for you so very often- be strong! You are an amazing encouragement to others, and your blog is just one of the many means through which you help others (like me). I can't wait for the first giveaway!


I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know there's nothing but light when I see you. :: Shinji Moon
