Hello dear ones, I am so glad you are here. In the flood of choices and information in life, you have decided to come spend a little time with me. I do not take that for granted. I am Sarah- a friend, artist, writer, podcaster, lover of Jesus + teatime + books + hammocks + walks + picnics + quality time + hugs + gardening. I make it my mission to help you celebrate and remember good times with loved ones. I don't know about you, but I know I need help remembering. Here at Sincerely Sarah Studios, you will find art, writing, encouragement, instruction, and I hope sincerity and truth that reminds you of a greater love that comes in quietness and rest.
the quality of being free from pretense, deceit, or hypocrisy.
Where are you? What a relational question the more I think about it! I am located in Richmond, Virginia, a place I thought I'd never come back to after high school. Of course, that's not the only part of life that didn't go as planned. But isn't the mystery and surprises of life found in even the tragic, unplanned, or resented moments? I've found a real treasure in the joy and peace I have knowing life is more of a riddle made up of poetry and reason, tragedy and comedy, and dark and light. Sometimes I feel so strongly that I'm supposed to know something, but I'm more and more convinced I'm supposed to know Someone, namely Jesus, who will help me as I go on the way. So where am I? I guess I'm just where I need to be learning, day by day how to trust that there is more fullness of joy and hope set before me when circumstances demand otherwise.
keep carefully (a valuable or valued item).
I chose the plural form because I know there is more to come. You will find my art, writing, podcast, and instruction studios. I like to explore and try new projects. My blog is called the Playroom, based on a delightful place my siblings and I entertained ourselves for hours upon hours growing up and will lead you to the words of my podcast. I know that I'm here to pursue and create beauty, truth, and meaningful experiences. I also want to encourage younger women to pursue their dreams. I desire to help others find creative rest too. And if you have made it this far, I have a mind exercise for you. Okay, you are stressed or worried about something. We all seem to be these days. I want you to close your eyes and imagine (using your hands too) blowing up a balloon with all your cares, tying it up, and letting it go up to God (or your higher power). Take a minute to let it rise up and watch it go. Breathe. You are going to be okay. And we can do this together! Now, what color was your balloon? ;) Let me know. I'm here for you, friend. I look forward to connecting!
