fifteen fill-ins | guest post by stephanie | nie nie dialogues



fifteen fill-in-the-blanks by the amazing stephanie of nie nie dialogues. stephanie is the one you look forward to reading about; what her cute kiddos say, her real life snapshots, what they're cookin' for dinner, her day to day recoveries and funny stories. her optimism about life and gratitude for God sinks into my soul whenever i click onto her website. she kindly filled in the blanks while i'm saying my goodbyes and boarding a flight, toddler in tow.

:: a good source of inspiration is: Anything on ETSY and this talk.

What awesome questions and answers! I'm also inspired by Nie each time I visit her blog. Her words have helped me get more in touch with so many deeper levels within myself since I first read about her in 2008. Thanks for having Nie as a guest and thanks to Nie and her family for being such a blessing in so many lives!

Yay Stephanie! I am also inspired by her tenacity and love of God and family. I think of her often when I am at a low point in my day, and these thoughts help pull me out and get my rear back to living in gratitude. :)

i just adore this series and am smitten that nie nie answered: "How to use and make Letterpress cards, announcements, etc." when posed the question: "i wish everyone knew about..."

my business is being a champion for independent stationers and amazing designers, so her answer makes me heart sing!
