I'm going to be honest here: I've been scared. Scared of trying new things. Scared of the unknown. But mostly, I've been scared, no, terrified, of failure. I've never been one to doubt myself, but you know that little voice inside that whispers "you can't do this"? Well, my little voice had grown from a whisper to a deafening yell this past year and somehow it crept in to 2015...
Long story short: I KILLED that voice. Cut off its air supply. And let me clarify: by "I" I mean "we" - I've had some amazing encouragement from friends and family in the past few weeks. Telling me that I can, in fact, do this and that, yes, I have something to offer the creative world. Sometimes, you just need to be reminded what you're capable of, and that God gifts all of us something beautiful to give the world.
So, my new year begins today...in February. I've redesigned everthineweddings.com to cut out the clutter. It's clean and simple - everything that this little business aspires to be. Let me know what you think!
Also new to the business is the addition of Ever Thine Writes, my little hand-letterin' somethin' somethin' on the side. Friends + family have asked me to address wedding invitations and create one-of-a-kind hand-lettered things, and the response was pretty damn good. After some of the aforementioned encouragement, I'm diving in head first. I'll be taking some classes in the coming months with the hopes that I'll get better. Keep an eye on Etsy to see if I do improve!
Here's a little something that's currently in the shop - it's a quote that hit home for me in the recent days:
Things are getting real here at Ever Thine - can't wait to see what 2015 brings!
