I received this as a gift for 2016 and enjoyed it so much that I ordered it for myself this year. I absolutely love it! The hymns for 2017 are all lifelong favorites, and the artwork is lovely. Thanks so much.

It's the little things in life that make me so very happy.

Little Things Studio is about the joy and beauty in the small and insignificant. Louisa May Alcott says “It is the sweet and simple things in life which are the real ones afterall.” I know that is the honest to goodness truth. And that is what Little Things Studio stands for.

I started life over at 27. I was working in the corporate offices of a bank going nowhere. I left my job and went back to get my second undergraduate degree in Graphic Design at Mississippi State University. I had not taken an art class since I was eleven. I didn’t even know there were different weights of pencils.

I did this because life is too short to not spend it doing what you want to do. You only get one shot at it. I feel like I got my life back. I'm thankful everyday that I get to use my gifts. Little Things Studio started while I was still in college in 2010. I didn't plan on it becoming my career but it somehow did!

I live in Nashville, Tennessee, with my husband Dave, our daughter Agnes, and cat Weezie.

Little Things Studio has been featured on Design*Sponge, Apartment Therapy, Daily Candy, and HOW Magazine.

Refunds and Exchanges
I do try to adequately describe my work (colors, paper, size, etc) so you'll know what you are receiving. Your monitor is probably different from mine, so you might notice color differences when you receive your print.

No refund, or exchange unless there is visible damage, and the problem is reported within 15 days of being received. Returns will be mailed back at buyers expense. No refund for items lost in the mail.
