My Wedding and Event Styling Business

I made this blog eons ago as I started my wedding and event styling business, then named Events by Frainge. I even posted some events I did and the website I asked my friend to make.

I had some clients since then but not the number I initially targeted. It's fan-based; it'll take time- a friend said. I agree. But I'm sure I could have more, if I marketed my business well. Some people I know are not even aware about what I do.

A year ago, I decided to rename my business to keep the glory away from me and bring it back to the one who gave me the passion and skills- God. It's now known as Wedding and Event Stylist by Grace because I do it all by the grace of God. Most inquiries start with, "Hi Ms. Grace!" but I don't mind.  It is my pleasure explaining to them about what grace is.

I didn't make a website for this new name yet. I only have an ever reliable Facebook page. Hope you'll have time to visit and remember it when you or a friend is looking for a stylist. (Shameless plugging, i mean, marketing. ;))

Make Things Happen

So my last blog post has been a year ago. I didn't realize that before I decided to make this post about making things happen.

My 2014 was generally  like that- quiet. Passive. I wallowed more on things that are not happening more than making them happen. I have a lot of ideas, dreams and goals that I have been holding on to, planning, and wishing/praying/hoping for. And sadly, passively waiting for them to happen. I have endless notes that I've revisited only for a few times. I even have a written business plan but I'm pretty sure that when I review it, it would only have a few goals checked.

I am an advocate of waiting for God's perfect timing. I know that God answers prayers and that things will come to pass in His perfect time. But I also know that God gave us skills, abilities and talents that we should use to the fullest. The dreams and passion God deposited in us are things we could use to advance His kingdom and honor Him. So I am making these dreams and plans happen. I know that I can only do it thru the grace of God and if it's not in His plan for me, then only He can stop it.

My pledge for this year is to make things happen and I'm going to document them in this blog. I hold you, whoever you are, accountable. I you don't see me making blog posts or sharing anything on social media, then you can scold me thru any means you can. Ha!

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on His law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not whither- whatever they do prospers. - Psalm 1:1-4
