I’m Stacey. I’m a child of God. A wife to Anthony. A mom to Parker and Tyler. A daughter. A sister. A friend. A business owner.
Most of you probably think of me as “a crafter” and that’s fine…because I am! I love to craft, decorate, shop and do all the things! And I know that’s a lot of what you see from the outside looking in.
When I first started this business I had no idea how it would shape and mold or just what God had in store for me. I had no idea he was going to give me the platform I’ve been given to inspire so many ladies to create and decorate. But guess what?!
IT IS SO MUCH MORE THAN CRAFTING!! THIS IS BIGGER!
A couple years ago I got a FB message from a follower that I will NEVER forget. It was the first time someone had reached out to me to tell me the story of how they had been battling cancer and how I had helped them find their JOY again.
Those were words I will never forget and it hit me right then and there, that I wasn’t put here to just share crafts and decor…I was also put here to spread JOY!
There have been so many things that have happened like that over the past couple years that constantly remind me that THIS IS BIGGER! So many God winks and touching moments and I’ve always tried to lead with Joy.
Then, in rolls 2020. The Pandemic. Suddenly this became even bigger and more important to so many, including myself. Crafting and decorating have been an escape, an outlet, a distraction, a positive light in a crazy world…the list goes on and on.
It was hard to navigate at first. Do I go live and just pretend like things are normal when they are NOT NORMAL? But, I carried on. I kept crafting, decorating and spreading joy as best as I could. And I hear from people daily how much it has helped them during this time.
GUESS WHAT?! It has helped ME more than you know too! Truly, it has. And it makes my heart happy to know it has helped a lot of you too.
Last night during my Rolling into Christmas craft night, there was a huge GOD MOMENT (If you were there, then you know)! God showed up during that craft night and he showed up big! He showed up for us and we all stopped and prayed for a fellow crafter who is losing her husband to cancer and needed prayers. We cried together, we don’t know each other in person…but it didn’t matter.
Because this is bigger. It’s more than the crafts, the cute red trucks and the buffalo check. It’s a community, a true community who I care about SO SO very much. God is here and he is working within us all.
I guess my whole point of this is to let you know that I know and I SEE YOU. I know that some of you are hurting and suffering, and I know many are dealing with all kinds of additional stress this year during the pandemic. I hope I can put a smile on your face when you need it- because you put a smile on mine right back!
I am here for you…to share cute craft and decorating ideas, take you whisper shopping…whatever the case may be!
I can’t fix this crazy world, but I can keep spreading Joy. And that is just what I intend to do! I pray for this community all the time and I pray that God will continue to use me for his will and I thank him for putting me on this path and journey. I don’t take it lightly and I love y’all SO, SO much!
This was on my heart big time and I just had to share!
BIG HUGS TO ALL OF YOU,
