Smelling Coffee TV – Using What You Have to Make Something Beautiful Are you getting Spring Fever? Want to learn easy and inexpensive ways to brighten up your home or spread sunshine to a loved one?

My friend, Stephanie Jordan (owner of Allium Floral Design, in Cleveland, MS) was my guest, and y’all, she is one talented and creative lady!  Stephanie brought all kinds of “plain” containers, and taught us to view them as valuable and showed us how to make beautiful floral arrangements in vessels that we would normally discard.

What Stephanie did with the flowers and containers, God does with us.  When we submit ourselves to God’s Creative, Talented, All-Powerful, All-Wise hands, and let Him have His way, He takes who we are and what we have, and creates something beautiful with our lives! Every. Single. Time.

Let’s celebrate this truth as Stephanie encourages us to use what we have to make something beautiful.  And, if you are near the Cleveland, MS area, you will want to check out Stephanie’s shop.  Visit her webpage for more info.

SUCH GREAT IDEAS!!! I’m continually inspired every time I watch this episode… and hope you will be, too.
