Be the Light

“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.” – James Keller

Right now, I’m enjoying day two of the Creative at Heart Conference at the Hotel Roanoke. It has been so much fun already. Yesterday was completely amazing! I can’t wait to share more with y’all about my experience later. There is a lot to talk about. Be sure to check back later on in the week! 🙂

Today’s post is actually inspired from the first Creative at Heart. When I attended back in January, this idea was placed on my heart. There are so many incredible people in this creative industry. So many of them have impacted me and my business in one way or another. I was racking my brain for a way to give back to them for inspiring me and giving me the courage to pursue my dreams.

I was brainstorming with Jess of Jess Creates, after finally meeting her at the conference (YAY!). She helped create these prints with a quote that has really been speaking to me. I think I first heard this quote from Mary Marantz and it really hit me hard. It’s so true and I genuinely believe all of the people who have impacted me are the embodiment of this quote.

Lifting someone up, doesn’t take away from your sunshine at all. I’m so thankful to everyone in this community who believes this. That’s why I wanted to send out a little box of sunshine to everyone. I wish I had a limited supply of money so I could send a piece of encouragement out to everyone. Maybe one day! 😉

I also wanted to include a candle (for obvious reasons haha) and a fun journal to write down your dreams in! I even snuck in some yummy chocolate too! No, these weren’t the fanciest packages, but I wanted people to open them and just feel loved. Ya know?

These are all of the amazing people who helped make these packages so fun! Thank you!!! <3
