Goodbye and Hello...Big Changes

Well the time has come for a few big changes behind the scenes over here at Lily&Thistle.  Change is mostly, always bittersweet.  The bitter part is saying good-bye to my right-hand, Camille.  Thankfully we're related  (thanks Micah) and I get to see her at family events but it will not be the same.  I have loved all of the extra excuses we've had to talk and see each other.  It has been such a fun little chapter.


I cannot believe we are going on almost three years running this little business!  Camille has been there from the beginning.  So excited, so full of great ideas and always so positive and willing to do whatever we thought it would take to be successful.   Patient with all of the bumps and bruises that come with learning as we go.  So many hours of printing, stuffing and shipping (mostly during holiday seasons).

She has seriously been amazing.  But this "good-bye" for us is a big "hello" for her.  She is moving on to make more time for her family and her own thriving business.  If you haven't heard of Singer's Company, you should check it out. Camille was made to work with these girls!  She brings out their confidence and spark.  She has the talent of making everyone she meets feel like they are the most important part of her day and she gives that gift to so many little girls through this group.

I could go on but I won't.  Mostly because I can feel Camille blushing as she reads this.  If you have  received a package or corresponded with Camille or just enjoyed the little bits I've shared, please leave a comment and let's all say good-bye. Love you Camille and THANK YOU.

*On Thursday, I will introduce you to our new  "Hello".


  1. I've never talked to Camille, but my packages were always so fun and pretty! Wishing you all luck and good things in your "Hello"'s!

  2. You've described Camille perfectly. She is so wonderful and when I first met her I loved her instantly. I wish my Mags could be in her Singers Company. Sorry you have to let her go you'll just have to plan more family reunions. :)

  3. Camille seems like such a great person and it looks like you both had such a fun time working together! I just read through some of your past posts and was cracking up over Norah's hair! must have been an awful surprise at first...but I am sure it will be something you laugh at for years!


  4. What a bittersweet goodbye. Camille is a rockstar. :)

  5. I would be sad but now that we're moving into your parents ward I'll get to see more of you both. (You think you can just get rid of me?!) Too bad I missed you by nearly 18 months.

  6. Ditto to all who have commented! Hannah has been so fortunate to have such a great girl like you on her team!
    Good luck with your Singers Company, raising your adorable family, and have a wonderful life and see you at the next family function.


Your comments mean so much. Thanks for taking the time to say something.
