A few Mondays ago, I received an inquiry for my biggest Sprig & Spring job of all time and had a little less than 48 hours to pull it off...
Let me just start by saying, I've been struggling with whether or not Sprig & Spring is something I want to continue doing as a business- obviously this year has been kind of a doozy and I've been praying a lot about it.
I was talking to God, just feeling really overwhelmed and lost about Sprig . I go upstairs to grab my phone and begin my day and low and behold- I received an email from someone at Mariner's church asking if I was available to do a flower installation for their Sunday livestream. I laughed when I opened the email, because I just feel like God has this sense of humor when it comes to me and my complaining and timing. It's like he's saying "I'm here giving you the answers you're looking for and since you're so impatient, here's a crazy deadline. Have fun!".
You may be wondering "what's with the pastels, it's pumpkin spice season?"- they decided to celebrate Easter again since they were unable to do it in person during April. These flowers were for their gigantic outdoor stage set up- it was like I was flowering at Coachella (okay maybe not exactly like it, but you get the idea). I worked with the help of my entire family for a day and a half trying to get this done in time. I bought most every flower at my wholesaler, I drank way too much coffee, my hands are still hurting from bending wire and tearing apart stems of eucalyptus. My parents and I packed up three SUVs and drove it to the church where we left it sitting on a giant tarp.
I didn't actually get to see it set up, since it was a Sunrise filming session and they were way too nice and offered to set it up so I didn't have to wake up early. Praises be. All in all, this was a beautiful, GIANT, unexpected blessing this past week. God is so good and this project will always hold such a special place in my heart.
