    beautiful decorations, lisa! i especially love the advent calendar – it’s inspiring me to take some pictures of my own :-)

    i didn’t blog about it but today i am saying “hello” to a renewed sense of purpose. we’ve been going through a rough period but God has continued to bless us in the midst of it. we’re learning & growing and even though it’s uncomfortable and we may not like it, we’re so much better for it!

    you truly are an inspiration to me, lisa – as a mom, wife, artist & business owner. just wanted to let you know :-)

    I found a plastic, unbreakable nativity set to put out for little hands to play with. I try to put some things out that are okay to touch since so many things have to be put out of reach. good luck w/ your decorating! I know it’s a challenge!
