feeling grateful!

This October will be a year since we decided to take our wares on the road. We knew things wouldn’t be always easy… we knew things would get tough. And, we knew we were going to have the time of our lives…. We’ve gone thru all these emotions in the last year, easily. We have had some absolute high moments and low moments that clouded our dreams. High moments consist of finishing out pieces and feeling pumped and excited with the way they turned out, making a sale, and/or receiving an email proclaiming love for what we do!               I can remember sitting at my desk at a firm in San Antonio, wishing I was creating art and designing with Ben. Looking back, I believe my desire was so strong that it manifested itself. And, here we are working together, hand in hand.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I’ve realized that your thoughts, however wonderful or gloomy, make you who you are. If we convert our negative thoughts into positive ones and are truly thankful for what we have, then positive people, experiences, and things will come our way. I’m blogging today not just to come clean, but to empower and give hope to those who may be in a rut creatively, professionally, or mentally… heck, at times, we’ve been in all three. We believe God is faithful to His word!                                                                                                                                                      “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7: 7-8                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I’m asking for peace, love, and patience! That peace be in my heart and mind daily. That I love and show gratitude for all the things we have. And, that I demonstrate patience in exploring this dream.

So, we’ve taken an oath to refrain from negative thoughts and to stir clear of doubt. And, focus on uplifting thoughts and actions! Praise GOD!

Our world would be so much better if we focused on the good, the happy, and the blessed!  You only live once?  False.  You live everyday.  So make it great!

art & soul,

Allie & Ben
