What You Need to Know About COVID-19


(I am not a physician, so please consult your doctor regarding any information you read about COVID-19. See CDC information sheet below the blog.)

In the wake of the Coronavirus scare, let’s discuss a few simple things we can put into place to make sure we are protected both mentally and physically:

Number 1 – DO NOT BE AFRAID! If you’re a believer, remember, “He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Contagions can keep us in a place of fear and worry, but we are called out of those feelings by a loving Father. Put your trust in Him and ask for peace that transcends understanding. (Bonus point – worship changes your mood and perspective. 😊)

Number 2 – The Coronavirus is not as bad as it’s been made to believe. The percentage of people completely healing from this virus is very high. The elderly and those with compromised immune systems (both young and old) are susceptible to ANY sickness. These are the ones heavily affected. In saying this, since the highly contagious virus can travel quickly from person to person, social distancing is an intelligent response.

Number 3 – In order to keep yourself free of sickness (as much as humanly possible), wash your hands regularly, eat a balanced diet, be sure to get plenty of Vitamin C, and take your daily elderberry syrup (or gummies), exercise and feed your brain with positivity. It’s incredible how our thoughts can change how we feel physically.

Number 4 – Remind others of the things you know to be true, both about the reality of this virus and our position as believers in Christ.

Number 5 – If social media is causing more anxiety than it’s worth, take a break! There is no harm in removing yourself for weeks at a time to gain better understanding and control of your mindset.

Remember, this too shall pass.

Sweet Sandy Wiggins, a resident of Oneonta, grew up with a love of organizing and rearranging spaces in her own home. Her friends and family lovingly refer to her as the “girl scout” of the group because of her knack for keeping things organized and beautified. Her passion for decluttered space and eye catching order landed her a spot on the OWL team. She is married to her best friend, Dwight, of 27 years and has three wonderful grandchildren to dote on. Sandy loves meeting new people, creating happy spaces for our clients and caring for those closest to her. We are blessed to have her on the team!

Stacie is a coveted member of our OWL team. She has an eye for organization and design that will make you wonder why she didn’t pursue this passion full time! A project manager by day, her life revolves around order and keeping everyone on track. As a weekend warrior, she assists in Saturday projects and makes our clients wish they could hire her for weeks at a time! She lives in Trussville with her husband, daughter and two dogs and enjoys spending time with friends and family, yard sale hopping and Alabama football (Roll Tide!).

Margaret Hale, the beautiful southern belle from Birmingham, is our newest addition to OWL.

She is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in Restaurant and Hospitality Management and a professional chef. Margaret has worked for Southern living, owns a catering company and co-owned a restaurant in Huntsville, AL. Since cooking wasn’t her only passion, she decided to join our team and expand on her love of organizing and home décor. Her eye for flare and spirit of excellence makes her the perfect addition to our team.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, being in ministry, and creating the best new recipes around.

For many years Susan has been the go-to organizer and stager for her friends and family. Having a long-time passion and naturally inclined skill set for making spaces purposeful, she decided to pursue a career in the industry. She has an endearing and meaningful memory of decorating her bedroom as a child. This included transforming bar stools into multi-story Barbie Doll townhouses. In her past lives, Susan was a Restaurateur, Executive Sales Manager, and a Cosmeceutical Sales Rep. When asked about her biggest accomplishment, she’ll gush about her gratitude for the blessing of having raised a good and decent human being. Her son is currently a grad student at the University of Florida’s MBA program.

Susan resides in Birmingham with her husband of twenty-six years and their pack of fur babies. This includes four cats and a “little” 110 lb. dog. Her lifelong platform is animal rescue and advocation.

“No matter how educated, talented, rich, or cool you believe you are, how you treat others ultimately tells all. Integrity is everything.”

Meet Miranda! The one that keeps our wheels turning and always answers the phone with a smile on her face.

She loves fishing, family, and all things nerd – which is 1000% why we love her so much!

Miranda lives in Odenville with her husband, precious baby boy, and a sassy cat.
