~FAITH IN A BOX~ Mixed Media Box


Design Team member & Mixed Media Artist, Sherri Welser

We all need daily reminders to Embrace Imperfection and to have faith that where we are in life is where we need to be. Faith happens when we let go of we thought our lives should be as the universe has bigger plans then we ever could have imagined... This sweet little box is a daily reminder to let go and let the life you were meant to have shine through...
