Long time no blog, right? I was a really active and consistent blogger in 2011, but since then I've slowly gone down hill. This is the first blog post I've written in a year! Yikes! But...I'm going to try to get back into it because it's really a great way to share information and advocate.
As you may know, graphic design has been a huge passion of mine for about 2.5 years now. I was very into blog design for a long while, but eventually I stopped because I was too busy with school, work, etc. Last year, on a hiatus from blog design, I came up with the idea to design prints and ope up a etsy shop. It was a better idea at first glance because it was less demanding--I could design prints whenever I had free time, so the print would be premade for people to buy, and I would just have to print and ship. I had 2-3 prints last November, but for whatever reason, I dropped the idea.
Then, this September, as I was trying to figure out what the best fundraiser I could do for Angel Tree would be, I came back to the etsy shop idea. I really, really wanted to do it. Even more than before. So, I got to work! I was glued to my computer for weeks, designing and designing to get a good amount of prints stocked in the shop. I figured out all the logistics (shipping, supplies, printing, etc. which all turned out to be a surprisingly huge obstacle!), and this week, I was finally able to open up shop!
I'm so excited to show you the fruits of all my time & energy:
Please go check it out and spread the word! Help make a difference for some beyond worthy kids this Christmas (& get a pretty print to hang on your wall while your at it)!

The other night, I read James 1. It's one of my all-time favorite Bible chapters, so if you haven't read it...seriously, go do it.
The part of that chapter that really, really stood out to me the other night was verses 22-25.
A mover and a shaker.
A person could read the entire Bible through & listen to sermons galore but never really do anything in the end.
Doing is so important to me. Actually doing something matters.
