last month, i was featured as a stationer for a british themed baby shower in occasions magazine. i’ve been excited and waiting to share this news for quite some time. i created an invitation, place cards as well as tea tags for the images you see below. many thanks to the extremely talented callie murray for asking me to be a part of this shoot!
a round-up of ideas for dads, of any kind. the chef, the one into gadgets, the organizer, and the sentimentalist. handmade goods coming soon!

typically, summer attire basics consist of cool pieces with easy style. below i’ve created a round-up of some standard items that could be found in any wardrobe, a loose tank top, sandals, a basic necklace and a neutral bangle. i’ve paired it with one new item that is on trend, the floral short (it’s all about the patterned trousers or shorts this season). sometimes all it takes is one piece to create a whole new outfit. enjoy!

a few more custom projects have come my way in the past few weeks. one was a special request by a client to a designer who had re-branded her website, the other was by a sweet friend for a wedding gift. both were extremely different in undertaking, but so much fun to make. i love that i get to do this kind of work – it’s so fulfilling to allow people the freedom to help express their own vision and create something they truly love. if you have an idea for a project for yourself, please head to my shop to start the process. hope you enjoy!
my own paraphrase of the first 7 verses of psalm 34.
in each of my days, at every time, i will choose to make Papa God high because of His character. all throughout the day, i cannot stop ascribing worth to who He is.
my mind, heart, and will find their value in His being. who I am in Him brings me worth. let those who lift Him higher than themselves be glad and full of peace.
come, let’s make much of Papa God and all that He is, let’s give praise to Him together.
i searched Him out, and i found Him waiting to answer me. His presence brought peace and calm from my fears.
when i seek Him for what I need, He gives me joy and happiness that cannot be hidden, there is never a need to feel shame because His love continually overwhelms me.
He hears the hearts of the poor and gives attention to their needs. He saves them from whatever they may be facing.
those who are sent from the Lord make a dwelling around them who are in awe of Him and they are rescued.
verse 3 in the ESV says, “oh magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!”
we continue to build up His name and increase Papa’s value with one another when we exalt and/or magnify Him and His character in the presence of other believers. we have an opportunity not only to ascribe worth to Papa, but also to help build up one another and encourage the body when we speak praises about who He is. sometimes we need to be reminded of His works and what He has done, sometimes we can’t remember for ourselves.
let us not only choose to be intentional with giving Papa praise individually from the innermost places in our own hearts, but also when we come together. whether at home with family, at work, or with friends around the dinner table, let us make much of Him and all of who He is together, in community. let’s choose to give praise to Him. together.
over the past few months, instagram has allowed me to capture small things in the everyday, like trips to the post office, meals for one, prop details and of course new lettering ideas. hope you enjoy!
it wasn’t too long ago that i shared this idea and custom request, but i recently gifted a photo mat of my own. i gave this mat to a couple with lyrics from the song to which the bride walked down the aisle. the music in their ceremony held a lot of meaning and was full of worship and praise, including this song.
this item is now officially also listed in the shop. if you’d like me to letter something on a mat for you or for someone you know, please don’t hesitate to convo me through etsy or send me an email!
