I Am Enough

I am enough. These three simple words—I am enough—are pretty powerful. As I type them out, I want you to whisper them to yourself…”I am enough.” Now say it out loud…”I am enough.” Everyday I fight a battle from within that tells me I am NOT. Not pretty, not nice, not a good wife, not a good mom, not a good friend, not a good neighbor, not good at my job, not smart, not clean, not fashionable, not thin, NOT enough. These feelings and lies are exhausting. Everyday I see my strengths…making others smile, giving a needed hug, saying encouraging words, and laughing together. Sometimes I do amazing things with my hands…comb tangled hair, pack healthy lunches, wipe down dirty

Meet Brielle, Miracle Baby

I worked with Brielle’s parents, Katie & Montana, not long ago and think they are are one of the cutest couples ever. Everyone at work was really excited for them when we found out they were expecting. When Katie’s pregnancy reached 23 weeks, their journey took an unexpected turn. Here is Brielle’s story in a nutshell, written by her sweet Mama, Katie. Written January 2019 “At 23 weeks pregnant, Montana and I found out that our sweet baby girl, the one we’ve been dreaming of and praying for for so long, has an extremely complex cardiac abnormality. It was absolutely heartbreaking to hear that our daughter wasn’t going to make it. Our doctor told us that she was going to pass away

What to Expect at a Ruby Bucket Retreat

We have been working really hard to make your weekend getaway as fun and relaxing as possible. If you have never been to a retreat before, here is what you can expect: • A great fun-filled weekend at a nice location within close proximity to several craft stores and restaurants. There is a separate entrance at the hotel that is close to the conference room so you won’t have to carry your supplies very far.• Upon arrival, everyone will receive a gift bag with exclusive Ruby Bucket items, lovingly selected just for you.• You will have a 3’ x 4’ space to work on….that’s two people per table. This should give you plenty of room for any totes and bags to be around you. Some people bring a portable or stackable shelf (like those found in the
