Last blog entry!

Hi Bloggers and Friends,
So, I had a great day today and yesterday, filled with doctors apt.'s where I received lots of good news. Several of the co-infections that I got with Lyme Disease are now back to normal. (No, I'm not clear of Lyme...YET) But it's good news and the dedication to pure, non gmo foods, organic and absolutely no sugar is good for you and heals a ton of things. It's a little too long and boring to go into, but I'm so excited to share with you how some of these issues were healed, besides prayer of course. 

This is one of my last few blog entries for this blog! Because I officially shut down the 501c3, it has been recommended to me that because this blog has the name Inspired Design Publications, I should close the blog! So, I'm going to start one up with Sunset and Magnolia! It will be entirely home, lifestyle and natural/organic solutions for beautiful and healthy, healing homes, based on my discovery and (almost) recovery from Lyme.

If you'd like to receive it reply back and I'll make sure that I let you know when it is set up in the early part of 2016!

Until then, Merry Christmas! (Pic of my sweet momma and favorite sis)
With much love,

PS I might remind you one or two more times to let me know if you'd like to be on the list!

Preview of Items/Where have I Been?

Good Evening,
I received so many sweet wishes from you all. Thank you. Life is funny, isn't it?  I want to be honest and share, but I don't want to complain. Ultimately the last year and half have been hard. Two summers of feeling awful. One because I had no idea what was wrong, the next because I had begun treatment. I ducked out (literally) of social situations (Justin's senior year events, church, etc...) because I was too exhausted to have meaningful conversation. 

God certainly has a purpose. 
Thankfully, I am seeing shimmering signs of that purpose, like a door opening to sunshine and heavenly possibility. I so love people (friends, family, clients). Even if I just know you on Facebook and a little in real life, it is precious relationship to me.  I know for sure; time is precious. 

This seemingly celebratory article (8 pages) appeared in French Country Style. It confirms to me; nothing is as it seems. This stunning place looks like the person who lives there has an ideal life. While I'm filled with nothing but gratitude, this life is far from perfect. At the same time the public looked at these pictures, I lay in that bed, or on that couch, sweating, suffering and healing from Lyme Disease. Life is messy. 

Hilariously, I wrote this methodically last night. I was going to upload pics from our preparations today! Haha! I think God had other plans. I've been sitting at my computer for an hour and had to reset about 5 passwords and still cannot get to my iCloud, whatever to share the pics. So, I will upload the pics to my Facebook page under this blog post, so you can see them. 

Yep, Life is messy! But, wonderful! I hope to see you all on Thursday!

Much, much love,

Thursday's Christmas Boutique

Dear Blog Readers, 
Merry Christmas! I am just letting you know about my boutique on Thursday. I'm so excited about it. I'm finally feeling about 70% of my normal self :)and have had enough energy to put together this little boutique. I'll share photographs of items tomorrow, after Judy and I spend Tuesday wrapping all the goodies up!

I have a new found passion for all things organic and green, so my interior design business has taken that turn as well. I started a naturopath program just for background information on how to use the healthiest ingredients from the contents of your spice pantry (with pretty jars) to wallpaper paste to organic fabrics to a pharmaceutical free house and chemical free home. 

I hope you'll join us for delicious, beautiful, gluten-free cupcakes that are the most beautiful things you have ever seen. The soaps are made by a darling local girl all organic. Our wrapping is included and have one darling friend just wrapping all day. 

We'll have oils, natural cleaning products, beautiful hostess gift items and packaged beautifully. All under $20. Then of course, we have antique accessories, new pillows, linens and all way under what I paid wholesale! It's that time of year that I am excited to part with all the goodies that didn't find a home and the items I put together for your holiday gift needs.

I so hope to catch up with you. You are always welcome to bring friends. I'll have the outside fireplace on come sit enjoy some "bulletproof" coffee, hot cocoa with no sugar and low glycemic, and delicious gluten free (and exquisite locally made) cupcakes!

Pictures posted tomorrow.
Much love,
