Got your Goat {funding a missionary with Scripture Calendars}

There are pictures of goats hanging up around church these days.

It makes Cora FREAK OUT. She loves goats at the moment. Why? I have no idea really.  Whenever you have your phone or iPad out she thinks that you’re going to show her videos of baby goats! Or she hassles you with her adorable, “goat? goat? goat? awwww baby!” until you do.

So back to the goats hanging up around church. It is a fundraiser our church is doing to raise funds for a missionary in Syria. The idea is that we as a church will be able to help fund a goat farm for a group of missionaries there who will help build the community through the work and care of the goats. So, our church gave $10 to whoever wanted to try to use that money to make money out of it for the cause.

During all the crazy of the last couple of weeks(you know, buying and selling a house, packing, going to a conference, chasing two crazy littles, being pregnant(and huge as people like to remind me)) I came up with a plan. I had to think of something that I still had the supplies unpacked for, and that I could make multiples of (instead of doing anything custom which seems to be my normal…) I decided to make a scripture calendar.

Usually in August, as everyone is gearing back to go back to school there are all sorts of calendars and goals going on for the new school year.

So the idea of this is that there is a scripture a month to help you memorize a verse each month!

They are 5×7 size printed on card stock.

There are twelve verses for August 2018-July 2019 My hope  is that these verses will encourage you daily whether you hang this on your fridge or put it next to your computer while you work. You will have the opportunity to read those verses daily and hopefully bury them deep in your heart.   So, who wants to help a missionary purchase some goats while getting a pretty little calendar with a purpose? 😉

They are $20 each(plus shipping if you don’t live near me). Email me or contact me if you’re interested!    

My prayer is that they would encourage you and point you constantly to the Lord. We all could use that, right? Amen. 🙂

a new listing in my etsy shop

Hey friends!

There have been a lot of inquiries about the kind of portrait rendering that I’ve been doing for friends and for my family lately, so I thought I’d add a listing to my etsy shop.

These little renderings that I take from pictures are so fun and sweet. I feel like they are so simple and almost childish but I love them. I’ve been making them for gifts a lot recently but I’m always nervous to know if the receiver is really going to like them. It’s funny how nervous I can still get about my art. Anyway, I’ve SO enjoyed having ours framed and hanging in our dining room and I plan to keep updating it as time goes on.

I love having a custom little rendering of our family. And I know lots of other people do too!

If you are interested, please go check it out here!

Of course you can always find me at: Miss Grace Designs 🙂 I haven’t had the energy to keep up with adding much to my shop lately but I’m still there!

then there was this sheep. RANDOM, after all the angels, i know.

sheep

then there was this larger angel:

day 24

which i’m super excited about and totally in love with. it was the largest size painting i’ve ever done and i think i was just so inspired it was one of the fastest ones too! there’s layers of text and music under the paint that you can see when you get up close.   {i have yet to get a really good photo of her. but i’m planning on setting up my tripod for that this weekend.}

and now they are almost all up on my society6 shop.  how fun is that?

a secret surprise… ok not really.

hey there! i have a secret to share  with you.

well. it’s not really a secret because if you’re observant you would have noticed it on the sidebar on my blog. but i haven’t talked about it yet.

so, guess what?

i started a Society6 shopChristmas Angel Framed Art Print

what is Society6 you ask? well, it’s basically this really neat website where i can load up my artwork and you can purchase it as prints and canvases and throw pillows and tote bags straight from them. they make it and mail it out to you!

WHAT.

isn’t that neat?

i was going to wait to tell you about it until i had some more art work up there. then i was going to order some myself and try it out… but THEN, you guys, the website is having this promo sale where you can get $5 off ANYTHING  from now until November 8! not only that, but free shipping too!!!  what what what?!

i just had to share it with you!

As for me and my house Stationery Card

my only regret is i didn’t get my act together and get a few more renderings(which is what i am working on) up there. i have dreams to make a Christmas door one. but…time has slipped away from me. i’ll try to get it up soon when  if i do, i’ll let ya know. Christmas Hymn Angel Throw Pillow

i know you all want a throw pillows with angels on it.

bawhahah. ok i get it. it’s a little silly. you don’t really want one. haha. but it’s funny just the same.

or a tote bag with a cute little red door from Gloucester on it? yes. yes, i know. you really need that in your life. bawahah. ok ok. maybe not.

no really, mostly i think the extra “stuff” you can put art on is just silly.  LEGGINGS? what? no i did NOT put my art on leggings. but the idea is hilarious.

but how cool is it you can framed prints? and canvases? and stationary?

anyway, if anyone wanted those angel prints for christmas…now is the time to order them. hint hint.

Click HERE for free shipping AND 5$ off any purchase between now and November 8th.

dreaming with wings

 

i recently painted a new angel to add to my collection! i like that she is simple but still has the little nod to Bethlehem in her dress. O Sing Choirs of Angels is one of my favorite songs at Christmastime.  Sing choirs of Angels 8x8

here are some of my older ones:

Isaiah Angel from last year and from a couple years ago.  bethlehem angel4  i want to create a whole collection of these to hang at Christmas time. i also would love to create a print set to sell. still trying to figure that one out. but one step at a time. for now i’m enjoying painting again.

but check this out!  it was my very first angel:

Glory Angel

{from 5 years ago!} she was 2 feet tall and a 8″ wide.  she was my first sale on etsy too. ha. my dad bought it to give to my mom for Christmas. isn’t that just about the sweetest thing ever? he encouraged me in my little business and gave mom a gift he knew she’d love because, duh, her daughter made it so of course she’d love it. = awesome dad/husband award. now she hangs in my parent’s house.

hoping to paint some more angels before christmas.
