Velvet Lime Girls' in Puerto Rico!

We've been brushing up on our Spanish ever since we found out that our artwork, seen on these gift sets by DIVINITY,  is now found in all the Walmart and Sam's stores in Puerto Rico! Thank-you Divinity for making us look so good and thank-you to all our new friends in Puerto Rico! 

For everyone outside of Puerto Rico, we understand the sets are available online at and gift shops that carry the Divinity line of products. 

So, a big shout-out of thanks to Keith Schwartz and the great team at Divinity for helping us carry our words of encouragement into the hearts of the wonderful people who live in Puerto Rico.

A tousled-head of garden chive caught our eye this morning. It's spiky, feathery, petal tips, still tossing around drops of dew, were just beginning to stretch in the morning light and awake to the joy of today.  What an inspiration!
Chives aren't used to being seen so up-close and personal, and they're kind of just known for those slender, savory stems that infuse our food with flavor. Mmm, your tastebuds should be humming right now at the thought of a few minced wisps of chives.  A tiny sliver can change the whole palate. And this slender chive strand changed the whole palate in our garden today, as it stood up and overflowed with hope in the morning light.  If a little chive can do that, we can too.  We can choose to lift our tousled heads and let hope overflow in our lives. 
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."  Romans 15:13

Overflowing with hope,
The Velvet Lime Girls
