"What do you have in your hand?"

Like so many sellers, Alwayz A Treasure began as a dream. In my case, it was literally, as a dream.

One evening, after another long day at an office job with diminishing hours, wondering how to make ends meet, I prayed, "Lord, what do I do?"

That night I had a dream of the shop, the name, what the business cards would look like - everything! I awakened excited for the first time in a long time, and got to work! I have always loved paint chip words/colors, vintage buttons, silk, velvet & collages. Making heirloom gifts with the items that I already had on-hand was simply the next step of faith!

It has been so thrilling & humbling to have the work of my hands bring joy to others, smiles to dear faces, and honor to my Savior & Friend, Jesus!

I am also so honored to have my work featured and sold at a local boutique:

The Grand Tea Room, also in Escondido, CA:

I am so grateful for all of the support that friends, family & other amazing shop owners have shown me as I follow this dream to bring graciousness to others through beautiful things!
