Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above… James 1:17

Someone once said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I have no idea who did…but I have to agree! I had the BEST breakfast this morning… a little peanut butter for protein, some blueberries and apples with a little coconut! Thanks to the Elisa Douglas of The Cake Lady for sending me home with a goodie box! Sorry, this picture doesn’t do it justice! Matt Nichols took the rest of them! (and for my super healthy eater fanatical kind of friends…no, I really didn’t eat this for breakfast.  But, I wanted to!!!)

Elisa Douglas aka The Cake Lady makes super delicious and beautiful cakes and cupcakes! Last night, she hosted a trunk show for another friend’s new business – Legacy Sewing by Gaylia Nichols. So, we got to eat Elisa’s goodness while shopping from Gaylia’s handcrafted bags, totes, baby items like bibs and burp cloths, quilts and so much more!  In addition, Gaylia sat with her clients taking personal orders – fabric, closures, strap length, styles, monograms, appliqués, etc. She’s so flexible and creative! Not only does she make these items, but she also does alterations, drapes and curtains, wedding veils, and lots more custom work! Check out the beginning of her Etsy shop here > Legacy Sewing Etzy.

I have such talented and gifted friends and want to support their creativity, talent and gifts. God has blessed them abundantly with such great skills. You can tell they love what they do, just hearing them talk about it. And they do it with such love. Admittedly, it’s hard to fight back gift-envy – because I just don’t cook and sew like my friends do.  I don’t sing like my friends – Lori Bailey and Rachel Schultz. But, I am learning to embrace my strength of connectedness. And I want to connect you to Elisa and Gaylia! I am planning to host a gathering for Elisa and Gaylia. It’s a “2-fer”! It’s a great time to hang out, look at beautiful things and taste good sweets! And…maybe listen to the lovely tunes of Lori Bailey and Rachel Schultz, who both have CDs.  Oh yeah….and then there’s my friend Karen Rios from The Dance Candle – who teaches dance, ballet, etc for all ages!!!  And…my friend Joy Bailey, the photographer… Joy Cherie Photography.

So…here’s the question.

Who wants to come and celebrate and support these talented women???
