      Welcome to the            nesting place of 

(n): a snug, comfortable, or cozy residence.
a retreat, refuge, resting place; home


THEHOPEFULBIRD  builds her nest with all the things
 that make her soul sing.
Crinkly tea-stained paper stacks,
 chunky journals &
oodles of scraps.
The Finley Chronicles
with lessons  & pup capers
 and countless blessings scribbled on old  papers.

If you're looking for a sweet retreat
 for mind body & soul,
you're in the
right place. 

My ETSY SHOP is stuffed with handmade journals, journaling papers & decks. My most recent additions include gratitude journals & affirmation cards. You'll find hand drawn birds & nests as well as faith filled decks.  My Wonderfully Made cards, brand new to my curated collection, are inspired by my brand new wonderfully made granddaughter.
And my new POWER DECKS are inspired by her big cousin, a strong and fearless red head I call my Peach.

What we do...

Some days we get all tangled up in measuring our successes and failures.
We get stuck on the notion that our successes are mediocre and few and our failures .. well you know … are ginormous. These thoughts churn until we’re convinced that we are just not worthy and that our efforts though heart-felt will never be enough . Well my friends …we couldn’t be more wrong.  We are whole, wonderfully made & limitless.
