but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. against such things there is no law. those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions + desires. since we live by the Spirit , let us keep in step with the Spirit. | Galatians 5:22-25

Well, my @silhouette.inc cutting machine finally made its debut - it only sat in my drawer for a year 🤪 Does that happen to you? I didn't focus on making ornaments this holiday season but I treated my workshop students to one and they were a hit!
Confession: I do this all the time. 🙈🤷🏼♀️ I’m not really a control freak, but I do tend to give myself anxiety and stresssss about things I can’t do anything about. 😬 It seems silly later (sometimes), but it can be things like how the Instagram algorithm works, or if people like/don’t like my lettering, or even things that haven’t happened but that WHAT IF MAYBE COULD POSSIBLY HAPPEN. And then I just spiral and cry and eat too many chocolate covered almonds. True story.
But I think it’s important to talk about and share when we’re feeling that way, because it helps to know we aren’t alone. And it helps to have someone come along and be realistic with us and remind us there’s nothing we can do about certain things and we just have to be ok with that. (It can be a little annoying 😂 because sometimes we just wanna to be emotional, but it’s TRUE. )
I openly and admittedly have no idea what I’m doing sometimes. And I might have a major vulnerability hangover after I post this. 🤭 But I’m also going to try and stop freaking out about things I have no effect on, and try to focus only on things that I have an impact on. Starting.....right after I finish these chocolate almonds. Heh. 😉🤷🏼♀️ Happy Saturday, my dears!
We went to Baguio last time.
Ellie-chan learned the French word for butterflies from a children's show (which is actually pronounced without the 'e' sound in the end.) She really spent a solid 10 minutes talking about papillon.🦋🌼
Last reindeers are for @kimiandsmithpictures . Hope these little gifts will bring joy to everyone to face Christmas and the coming New Year. Tomorrow will be our last shipment and we will close order for hampers 🎉🎁
