Fall Instagram Sale

Hello hello!

Just wanted to pop in and give you some scoop on a little sale I'll be having this week on Instagram!  To make room for Christmas inventory, there will be some sweet deals on a bunch of items.  Each day will feature a different product, beginning tomorrow (Oct. 22) with canvases.

How this Fall Instagram Sale will work:

  • I'll post a pic of what's for sale on Instagram, and the first person to leave their PayPal email address will be the lucky receiver!
  • That person will be sent an invoice via PayPal, which must be paid within 24 hours, or else next person in line has the chance to buy.
  • Item will be deleted once the invoice is paid to protect email addresses.

Sounds like fun, right?!  I'm sure excited.  Make sure you're following along on Instagram to participate!

Happy shopping!



Influence---I'm coming for ya

Dear friends, I've talked about it before, and I"ll talk about it again.  I'm headed to Influence Conference in 16 DAYS, and I can't wait to be there! It's hard to believe it has been a whole year since Influence 2012, but I'm excited to reconnect with friends from last year and meet many new ones, too.  I'm also super pumped to be participating in the Sashes Market!  If you're headed to Influence, be sure to to pop on by the market to say hi and check out the Anthro-inspired, real-life-Etsy market!  I'm thrilled to be bringing some Lettered Life items (canvases! notecards! iphone cases! journals!) and to spend time with some amazingly creative business women.  Would you like a sneak peak?  Here ya go...

Today I'm linking up with other Influence-goers so we can get to know each other a  little better before the conference kicks off.  (Hi new friends!)  We're sharing a couple of items we'll have packed and a few things we are excited for.  Without further ado...

2 things that will definitely be in my bag:

  1. A journal.  I'm an old fashioned note taker and will be jotting down all that I'm learning and also reflecting on all God's goodness during the weekend!
  2. A little bag to hold all the pretty business cards.  This sounds a little silly, BUT it's for real.  Last year I met so many people and loved having their cute little info cards when I was back at home so I could track down everyone's blogs/shops/internet spaces!

2 (or 6) things you I am most looking forward to during the conference:

  1. Meeting new friends.  The entire speaker lineup.  The homemade business workshop.  Christmas shopping in the Sashes Market.  
  2. Reflecting on how God has moved me since last year's conference and praying for what He'll do in the future. Hearing how God has worked in the lives of others!

I'm so excited.  If you're headed to Influence, leave a little note below! We can also connect on Twitter or Instagram!

Sending out love,



a note about notes

Heya Friends, Just wanted to pop in and let you know that the Lettered Life Shop has a new item on its virtual shelves.  It is turquoise and cornflower and has polka dots and arrows....it fits in your purse and and is perfect for recording your dreamy thoughts.  Here she is!


Yep, she's a journal.  And boy do I love journals. And notebooks.  I think I'm just a paper goods kinda person.  I have one notebook for work stuff.  I have a journal that I use with my daily devotional.   I have a notebook where I write down things that I really like from books.  And I have one (or two or three) that I just record memories in, so I can remember them for years to come.  There's just something about writing things down that makes me feel better.  Maybe it's because I feel like I'm committing my recorded thoughts to a deeper level of memory when I jot them down, or maybe it's just because I like to go back and look at my own handwriting on a certain day and know that's what I was thinking about at the time.  Whatever it is, it feels important to me, so I keep writing things down.

So if you are writer-downer, hopefully this journal can be a happy place for you.  I hope it can be something you can fill with joy, whether it's to-do lists, things you are thankful for, recipes, the first chapter of your soon-be-best-selling novel or whatever inspires you to pick up a pen and write.

Hope you are having the best kind of day,


PS--more info about the journal in the shop!
