2019 Hearts & Flowers Crafty Tea Event
Updated: May 13
My third tea event gave me such a blessing after a difficult week. Although Valentine's Day made RSVPs a challenge and started shaking my resolve to have the tea, I reminded myself that no matter who came, my goal is still the same - to connect, encourage and inspire creativity. The two beautiful ladies that came out were a huge blessing, lifted my spirits and gave me the encouragement I needed to keep moving forward.
Cookies and tea a plenty along with an uplifting devotional by Sarah Young started the event. Buttons (lots of them), fabric hearts, and creative canvas art decked out in buttons and jewelry finery topped off the afternoon! And the new product I introduce of fragrant heart sachets (in four different essential oil scents) were such a hit, that I have decided to make more and add them to my store.
I love connecting and swapping creative ideas. Here is an example: a couple of my canvas projects were lacking something and by talking and sharing ideas, the light bulb came on and my friends and I added a bit of accessories to the pieces an Voila! Perfect!
The thought that I can use this creative outlet, that God has gifted me with, to glorify Him is pretty awesome! Since life was so difficult growing up, I never dreamed that I could be hosting events to just create crafty stuff! With buttons! And jewelry! Who would have ever thought - but only God. He gets all the glory and praise for any good that comes out of these get together. And I pray, that each month my Crafty Teas will be filled with joy, peace, love, connection, buttons, tea, cookies and fun - all to His glory!
"You are my God, and I will praise You; You are my God, I will exalt You. Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever."
~ Psalm 118: 29-29
