Hello there.

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.
