How can you not be completely enthralled with this modern interpretation of black and white toile on these Pierre Frey plates? I think I need these to hang in, oh, almost any room in our house? They go with everything!
Suzani and Giveaway!
I stumbled upon this gorgeous tray from Decorative Things the other day. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a house with too many serving trays. If I had my way, there would be a tray on every table and for every purpose! They are great for organizing things. But we’re also big…

Let the Party Begin: New Soiree Invitations
It’s spring again, and that means things are changing. We are cleaning up the warehouse, rearranging the office and getting everything ready for a fresh start. While some of our old favorite patterns are disappearing into retirement, we are elated and excited about our new release. We’ve been working on it for months and have…
I really love “what you’re best at + helping others = purpose”. That’s great stuff. Keep the vlogs coming! They are candid and transparent, which is most appreciated. You are such an inspiration to so many of us.
Can’t wait to see you again at Authenticate,
Hi Whitney! I’m really enjoying your video blogs! I’m working on finding my “why” and narrowing down what my purpose is. I could really relate to what you said to creative sometimes being all over the place. I find I like so many things that it can be difficult for me to focus on just one thing! Thanks for sharing the resources – I’m going to begin with “Start with Why”!
I finally got around to watching your vlogs and LOVE them! Thank you for being so open and honest! I am totally one of those creatives that loves everything. So narrowing down my purpose has been a constant struggle for me, but “finding what you are best at” really hit home for me. See you at Authenticate!
Thanks Whitney! You responded so quickly. I’m totally impressed. I’ll be heading out soon to scour those resources you referenced…and thinking about asking Corrie (the friend I was telling you about) to read one of the books with me. As a painter I feel so isolated most of the time and the thought of having someone else to talk to about this really excites me! Also, we filled out the Day Designer worksheets together a few months ago…I’m thinking I’ll probably revisit my “why” page in the morning during devo/coffee time. 🙂 Thank you thank you for all your help!
Thank you so much for these videos. So much resonates with me!
Hello there Whitney!
I just got a chance to watch all of your video blogs and am loving them! Thanks for being so open! As a reader and now Authenticate student, I feel even more connected and inspired by your words of encouragement! As you know, I am all over the place too! I love SO many things! I am struggling with this very thing…narrowing down my true purpose! Thanks for the helpful advice!
I’ve been thinking about my purpose and wondering how designing cookies helps people. All of a sudden it hit me that by starting this business and being home has allowed me to serve my family more. I think your purpose tends to change from time to time depending upon where God has placed you. Thank you SO much for making us dig deeper to better ourselves!
Your on fire! This video gives me goosebumps 🙂 I love how much energy I have after watching this 🙂
Whitney! These vlogs are SO inspiring! Great job! I definitely needed this yesterday morning when I watched it! Have a wonderful week. xo
I watch! Keep em up girl
Great job Whitney! I am in the very early stages of starting my own business. This video on finding purpose is perfect timing for my brainstorming. Thank you! I love it!! xo, Sarah M
