the story. (part 2)


Total Floor Area



I love paper! There is something really beautiful and classic about actually writing things down whether it be a note to your child’s teacher or your grocery list or letting someone know you were thinking about them… especially in today’s world of fast paced technology. A hand-written note communicates thoughtfulness and careful attention. And I am a firm believer that pen and paper will never go out of style and will never be outdated.

When I started the process of designing the collection I knew for certain that I wanted to include note cards and note pads. I wanted them to be special. I wanted them to carry that deeper, more meaningful message like the art prints. I started with the note card sets and created a plethora of designs and then narrowed it down to my favorites. Some have beautiful renderings of Bible verses and others I created for personalizing. Each set was made extra special with its coordinating colored envelopes. Colored envelopes add that extra touch and carry the thoughtfulness through from beginning to end, literally. Practically speaking, colored envelopes and even beautiful stationery is not a necessity, but I did not set out to create a necessity, rather something that was special and extraordinary.

When it came to the note pads, my thought was this, why not have note pads that refocus your heart and remind you of your true purpose? My desire is to bring beauty to the ordinary and what’s more ordinary than writing to-do lists or meal planning and grocery shopping? I need to be reminded of the bigger purpose, the bigger why and if I am not reminded of those things, like I said in Part 1, I become easily distracted and confused about what is truly important. The meal planning/grocery list pads are my favorite for this very reason. At the bottom of each pad is a sweet rendering of Proverbs 31:25, “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.” The reason why I do things like grocery shopping is to be able to laugh at the time to come, it means taking care of and meeting the needs of my family, planning and being prepared so I can minister to them in that way. Now I have a sweet reminder of the why, my heart is focused on the real purpose. It’s so simple, yet so wonderfully important.
