My name’s Heather and I’ve been blogging since 2008 about how God has taken my little life and made it lovely.
In 2007, my son Samuel died from bacterial meningitis at 6 weeks old. I thought for sure that my life was over, but God had other plans. He picked me up, covered me in His peace and filled my broken heart with hope. Now, I work hard to embrace my life, love and loss.
I am a wife, momma, and designer who happens to own a lot of heart rocks, coffee mugs and house plants. I’m on a mission to make a creative home for my family that reflects all the love that lives in it, and I hope to inspire you to do the same through my Home Made Lovely home tour series. I like crafting with my kids, baking, and Downton Abbey. And I think washi tape is always a good idea.
I’m also the creator and director of the Joyful Life Library project, which was started in honor of my son Samuel, as a way to bring comfort to critically ill children at pediatric hospitals across the country.
Mostly though, I am a work in progress and thankful for a God who accepts me just as I am.
