An Update from a Super Brave Customer

Thanks so much to all of you who came out to ARTapalooza yesterday!   We had such a blast! And the weather was perfectly gorgeous.

We'll definitely be sharing some pictures with you soon of our newest designs and our booth, but in the meantime, we wanted to share this exciting update we got from someone you may all remember from last year's ARTapalooza!

It was a huge surprise blessing to get a visit from Emily, who had her heart and lungs transplant almost a year ago now and is doing wonderful!!!  At last year's event, you may remember, we met Emily for the first time just as she was getting ready to go in for her long hospital stay to await a donor.  She bought something from us to put in her room to help her be brave.

You can read her story here and here.    She ended up waiting 2 1/2 months (in the transplant wing) for her donor and had a long stay afterwards to recover.  She's doing amazing now, but I'm sure it was a long road!  Can you even imagine?!

So THIS year to celebrate and to encourage she bought a new piece for her friend to have in her room while she is still waiting for her transplant.

The piece she picked out has the perfect message for someone who is waiting:

"Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen."

God is so good!  How humbling it is, how thankful we are to get to do this job, and how we love Him more and more to get these glimpses of His work!
