It’s been awhile! And what a year it has been!
When my team and I began this year, like many, we had a clear vision and dream about what this year would hold. Never in a million years could we have expected what unfolded in the months to follow. I have to admit though, I’m still so grateful for this year for many reasons.
The first being able to slow down and really re-focus on the things that matter most. To me, that’s my faith and my family! We have such a need for each other and connection, but the fast paces of life tend to lose sight of that. The extra time together gave me a whole new perspective. Secondly, I came to the realization that even when the world around may seem chaotic, my life doesn’t have to be. I learned that when we’re focused on the things that matter most, we begin to see the world around us in a beautiful way. I’ve seen that happen with my very eyes. Here’s how…
It’s been a whirlwind here at Onyx + Alabaster, with so many things happening behind the scenes. We’re grateful to have experienced so much growth, expansion, and opportunity during these times. I am humbled by what has taken place – in spite of the many challenges surrounding us. We’ve seen divine intervention through an increase of projects, opportunities to serve more families, expanding into different avenues and a need to grow our team and eventually our space.
In the midst of chaos and unpredictability – our mission to impact as many lives as possible through the power of beauty and transformation has stayed the same. We haven’t allowed it to distract us, rather it has made us more certain. Our tag line (if you will) The alchemy of home + living has begun to define our every more.
Alchemy: the process of taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary.
I want for myself, my team and for you to take what has happened in 2020 and encourage you to use it as a catalyst for redefining a beautiful way of living; to turn your ordinary into something extraordinary. Let us all continue to transform, or re-create what life is for us – both in our homes and in our hearts.
Despite everything, 2020 has brought its own beauty and we’re seeing it unfold before our very eyes. Together, we’re headed in a direction of growth, expansion, and surety of mission.
We can’t wait to bring you along and share more about what’s ahead!
Until then, your friend + designer,
