I have the pleasure of working with some of the sweetest ladies (and gents) on the planet! I received this thank you card in the mail yesterday from one of my most recent brides and it made my week.  I have a group of corkboards hanging in my studio that I put up right after I started oatmeal lace to hold my first business card, ideas for packaging, a sweet 'you can do it' note from my husband and inspirational photos ripped from magazines.  its turned into my 'happy wall' where I keep all the little notes I receive from people I've worked with over the past year and a half.  when I'm in a funk or overwhelmed by my to do list, all I've got to do is to look up and I'm reminded why I do what I do.
so thank you to all of YOU. I am truly blessed.

The picture says it all. This year has been good to me and I'm excited and a little bit anxious to see what the future holds. I'm at a place I never dreamed I would get to (totally serious here) which is super scary and exhilarating all at the same time. Oh, so thankful for my supportive family and friends. Couldn't have gotten here without you. I know I can be a stress case and I appreciate your patience and understanding. You know who you are! And to the brides and wonderful ladies I've gotten to collaborate with this year- you are amazing! Thank you so much for the opportunity to create something special for you and for sharing this time in your life with me. I am humbled by you all.

If you're celebrating Thanksgiving this week, hope you have a happy and safe holiday weekend with loved ones. I know I will. We're celebrating our first turkey day as a family. :) xo {mattmiller}
