I forget that God has a bigger plan for me than I do for myself. I forget that  He has a better vantage point from where He stands than I do. At times I get impatient with my current stage. Sometimes it feels like I could do so much more in other places or with different people. Fortunately enough I was reading a friend’s blog, Rivers && Roads and came across this quote that you see above. How humbling it was for God to remind me that He doesn’t “slow” me down to hold me back but to prepare me. To grow me. Because He loves me.

Handmade Love

I’ve recently fallen more in love with quality handcrafted things- leather goods, jewelry, hair accessories, typography, you name it, I love it. With that said, I decided to try my hand at making greeting cards. The other day I came up with a few rough ideas of some unconventional but comical ones.

Please note, I said rough. I still have a bit more to go but at least you get the concept. Growing up as the 4th of five children, cards like these  would have been perfect.

Besides those ones I also want to make birthday cards. My friend’s birthday was a few days ago so who better to practice on than her!

Next thing on the “To Perfect List” is handwritten type.

Designed this little fun finder for the kiddos at my church today as a surprise. Can’t wait to give it to them! However, for the rest of yas, I put up a special link here just so you could download one for your kiddo (or inner-child) to complete.

Being that I have a few family members that live in and around New York, you could only imagine how difficult it was to watch the news. However, the biggest thing that got me through was the hope of life. I made this for them and any other person who was impacted by this horrendous natural disaster.

Even though it was last October the effects are long-lasting. They still need (y)our help. Help out today.

“Pears Soap was something I always remembered my Granny having when I was little. Where did it go? I tried to bring back a nostalgic feeling to the soap by using elements the company had previously discarded in order for a more ‘contemporary look’. I redesigned their logo, wrapped the soap in a wax map because I felt the soap had really forgotten where it came from.”

I love this new design, the repackaging, and the whole vibe. It’s granny’s soap for the grandchild’s generation. It has everything that would attract a new audience but just enough of the former look to keep the old. Kieran Reilly, you did a fantastic job. Makes me want to rummage through my parents’ closet (or bathroom) to see what I can bring forth to this age.

Being that grad school is less that two months away, I figured what better time than now to tie up a few loose ends. By loose ends I mean student loans. Yay for me! Or at least that’s what the Federal Student Aid wants you to think. Taking money out of your own pocket is the last thing anyone wants to do but I applaud the FSA site for making it an easier process. Their great layout, interactive buttons, complimenting colors, and prominent font actually make filling out forms somewhat… dare I say, enjoyable?
