About Pearls In Bloom
Creative. Inspiring. Uniquely one of a kind…Pearls In Bloom is a creative outlet and delightful expression of GOD’s love through founder, Celina Baginski. Celina’s various designs displayed by her delicate yet striking products from her high end crystal and pearl jewelry, hand embroidered clutches to custom made dolls and even her graphic designs displayed on coffee mugs to home decor pillows, different embroidered pieces, home decor pillows and she even has adorable kits for purchase. The lovely part of Pearls In Bloom is how it displays the likeness of how we are each a pearl in bloom, significantly unique and an expression of GOD’s incomprehensible love.
Celina, the founder of Pearls In Bloom and the creative behind LET’s TALK with Teresa Ann, and the author of Chasing Chaser, my personal portfolio of my creations since the birth of my son. She’s a wife to an incredible man, a mom to a hilarious and compassionate little boy, and is a multi-dimensional artist. Her work ranges from graphic design, designer of home décor goods and jewelry, sewing, painting, drawing, handmade dolls and toys, and so much more.
Since Celina was a little girl, both pearls and blooms of all types have held great meaning. She credits her grandmother’s love for pearls and handmade items as a great influence. Meanwhile, Celina’s love for blooms (flowers of all kinds) includes a funny story. Even as a little girl, she began to explore her entrepreneurial side. Together with her sister (and a shoulder push from their mom) they would go dumpster diving behind a local floral shop. Plant and flower castaways were creatively gathered and reimagined into beautiful little arrangements. She would walk down her block quickly selling out of her twenty-five-cent blooms; knowing she was about to bloom into incredible significance.
Celina has loved God since she was a little girl. Through a series of difficult phases in life, her faith in God—who heals and restores—has been her anchor. Above all, her desire is that others will experience God’s presence through her work and will want to draw closer to the original, ultimate creator.
About Godly Chitchat❀♡
(Partnership Between Celina & Teresa)
Godly Chitchat all started when two girlfriends chose to refocus every phone call into Godly chit chat. When we shared our struggles of life injustices and curve balls, the other person was there to encourage by re-painting the situation from God’s perspective. Even as I write this, I realize that it wasn’t just the two of us on those phone calls, it was three, for God was there too.
We would laugh and cry, solve mysteries, get inspired, and always walk away from the conversation better off than we were before. Every conversation brought us closer to the realization and understanding that we really are daughters of an unwavering God who passionately loves us – and who also happens to have of deep pockets of resources and power of which is at our disposal when we are in need.
Teresa Ann and I have been friends for 31+ years!! The last 10 years or so is when we “flipped our script” and started participating in life-giving, Godly chitchatting – instead of typical conversations that so many have. If you would like to get involved, join us in conversation at https://www.facebook.com/groups/godlychitchat. We’ve had this group site together for about 7 years now!! You can also read more about Godly Chitchat on Celina’s personal portfolio site ChasingChaser.com.
In the last year, we’ve also kicked off physical Godly Chitchat Small Groups in multiple cities: Wichita, KS, Cincinnati, OH and Austin, TX. I wonder what God will have us do next! Hmmm…details coming soon. 😉
