Breaking Silence: Transition

If you asked me, I'd tell you that I have missed this little space so badly.
That I know I have been silent and have written so many posts in my head each and every day.
That there is so much to tell you guys about... so much to process... so much that it seems impossible.

If you asked me, I would tell you that saying yes to God no matter what, is the most exciting, adrenalin pumping, challenging, difficult, stretching and beautiful thing I have ever done.
That this season He has asked a lot of our little family.
That we have chosen to say yes.
And that we look forward to the radical changes in our lives as a result.

If you asked me, I would tell you that adopting, selling your house, living with family, moving into a new house, planting a church and having a baby feels like too much.
That there are days that my heart is so overwhelmed I can hardly breath.
But that it is in these days... these moments... that I have come to know my Savior so much more intimately.

If you asked me, I would tell you that He does indeed give you the grace you need for each day.
That He truly does only give you what you can handle, and that I have seen him protect me from things that would have broken me.
That living in complete dependence on God opens up such beauty in relationships.

If you asked me, I would tell you that in this season I have been overwhelmed with gratefulness for the friends and family God has brought along side of us.
That it is in them, that I tangibly see Christ each and every day.
Friends who have become much more like family...
and family who have become so much more than that.

If you asked me, I would tell you that Christ is worth it.
Every single bit of the crazy that He might be calling you to.

I know that many of you have been praying for us in this season of transition, and I can not thank you enough.
I'm working hard to break my silence this week.
I have many things to update you on, and many stories to share.
Please ask me your questions.
It helps me go from thoughts swirling around in my head, to published on this blog.

I look forward to my online sample sale tomorrow night for Noonday!
And almost even more, I look forward to sharing pictures of our new house, telling you what God has been doing in my heart lately, and showing you pictures of the progress we are making in sweet Della's nursery.

If you asked me, I would tell you that I love this little space.
That I look forward to sharing this adventure we are on with you.
And that your comments mean the world to me.

Sample Sale: Date Change and Rules!!!

Due to us moving into a new house this weekend, I am moving my Sample Sale from tonight to Monday Night at 7pm! Don't forget!

Summer Sample Sale Rules:

Welcome to my Summer Noonday Collection online sample sale!  Many of these items are top sellers and I love them dearly, but because each item is handmade, we only have a limited quantity and these have sold out or will soon.

I have about 30 items set to be published at 7pm CST on Monday, August 27th.  Here is how it will work:

  • Each item will be posted separately.  
  • Each item will be tagged as "necklace", "bracelet", etc.  So if you are looking for a specific item, please click on the appropriate tag on the right. 
  • If you want to purchase an item, please leave a comment with your email address.  If you want multiple items, leave a comment on each item.
  • If you see an item up that you want but it has an email address in the comments, go ahead and leave a comment with your email address as that will serve as a "waiting list" if the first person doesn't make their payment in the allotted time.
  • After commenting I will email you a paypal receipt that you can pay for the item via credit card or paypal.
  • You MUST pay for the item within 24 hours of receiving the invoice, or I will re-post the item for sale.
  • I will leave all items up until payment has been received.  I will remove an item once payment has been received.
  • Let me know in your comment if you want to pick it up, meet up, or have me mail it.  I will add $6.00 shipping to your invoice if you request to mail it.
  • Email me at if you have any questions or specific directions for me.
Thanks so much!!

Ok, so our Noonday Fall Line is about to release and I am in love. I know you will be too! It launches Sept. 4th on the website, but here are a few sneak peek pictures just for you! 

To make room for all the new fall goodies headed my way, I will be having a sample sale this Sunday night at 7pm. More details on that below.

I am in LOVE with these items and there are many, many more just as beautiful in the full catalog launching Sept. 4th!

As always, each artisan group we work with is a group we have committed to for the long-term and there are some amazing stories of change effected because of YOUR purchases. This fall, you can be assured that not only are you buying a spot-on trend accessory, you are enabling many others around the world to live a life of dignity and worth.  Be an advocate for these incredible artisans today by hosting a show!

To make room for all the fabulous pieces for fall, I am having to say goodbye to some favorites at my Summer Sample Sale.  If you want to snag a treasure for a serious bargain, please check out my ONLINE ONLY sample sale beginning at 7pm, Sunday, August 26th.  I will have more info soon (and sneak peeks of what will be offered) but mark your calendar now as it will be first come first serve!!
