Announcement    **Mother's Day Shipping**
Custom family bouquets:
Update 4/29/22 I am currently running a few days ahead of schedule. I can't guarantee delivery by Mother's day, but I will do my best. I advise ordering by Sunday May 1, and selecting Priority shipping.
If you order after that, you can use the Proof in your gift until the real one arrives.
I can also ship directly to your mom/grandma if that helps.
If you have any questions, please reach out! I'm happy to help any way I can.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Items printed off site (Shirts, Mugs, Stickers etc) Cutoff Dates:
Standard shipping
Mugs - April 24 (Possible few extra days on 11 oz mugs only)
Tshirts and hoodies - April 24
Blankets - April 24
Stickers (with exception on what I carry in inventory) April 26

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

USPS, like many places, is severely short staffed, meaning unforeseen shipping delays. I will ship orders on time if not a bit early, and USPS will be doing their best to deliver on time, but I would advise allowing a little wiggle room for delivery deadlines.
I do track and insure all of my packages, but this does not speed up the process.
Thank you so much for shopping small, and for your understanding. Please reach out if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help the best I can!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many of my designs are listed on more than one product- such as a print, mug, shirt, or sticker. If you see a design as a print that you'd like on another product, please reach out to me! I'd be happy to add options for you. Thank you so much!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Handpainted & inspired original artwork. New items added often, custom designs made on request.

My artwork is dubbed as Inspired because I lean so heavily on God when it is painted. Often I don't know what picture I'm painting until it takes shape under His careful direction. It is such an amazing humbling experience. 'Less of me, more of You, Lord' is my prayer each time. See the about page for more of the story! I would love for you to read how God is working.

This shop enables me to stay at home with our three boys and little girl. We greatly value family time, and this is something flexible and relaxing I can do around our sometimes crazy lives.

I Paint to Worship

And God said, “Paint.”
What a thrill I get when I hear those words breathed into my soul.
I have been down this road before. He instructs what medium, what canvas, what brush, what color.
I follow.
He moves the brush along the canvas.
I love the sweet surrender.

Some of these paintings He has directed me to give away, and some of them grace the walls of our home. Every time I look at them I am blessed, because I know it was all God. He is wonderful.

I watched a picture take form on the paper, I painted, and He told me to come back later and finish.
“I want My words on it this time, Child. Let it dry, and when you come back to it,
I will show you which words.”

So I pulled out my Bible, and opened it up. I just knew God was going to direct me to the verse I had in mind already. It opened up, instead, to Psalm 104:3 “...He walks upon the wings of the wind.”
Yes, I should have known better the first time. Thank you, God!

“Just close your eyes, and let Me paint.”
"Really? God, this could get ugly."
“Who is painting here, Me or you? Just do it. Close your eyes and let Me paint.”

As my praise music radio station played, there played two versions of the same hymn, right in a row,
How Great Thou Art. ‘God is trying to tell me something,’ I thought to myself.

He was.
Because when I opened up my Bible to see which verse I had just illustrated, here's the one God revealed.
Psalm 104:1 “Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty.”

Indeed. How Great Thou Art.
I love the beauty in collaborating with God, but more than that, I love the sweet surrender.

To God be all the glory, and may these pictures bless your heart as they have mine.
-Nicole

    I am a Christian, wife, mother and friend. I love to create, be, learn, do and sing {although that may be reserved for the car or shower}. I have loved many forms of art since I could hold a crayon, and feel that it's an expressive form of worship.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to offer custom and personalized orders. Please contact me to arrange details. I reserve the right to deny a request if it does not agree with my beliefs, particularly because I am a faith based business, and appreciate your understanding. I'm so glad you're here and am humbled that you would consider choosing me to fill your special request and allow me to be a part of your life in this way.
I do charge a minimal one-time customization fee (see shop listings), and will communicate to you which level this fee will be prior to your purchase. This is determined by the level of complexity of your request and whether the finished product will be a good fit as a permanent listing in my shop, both of which are determined by the artist.

Can you change colors/words in an existing print?

While on occasion this might be possible, in general it is not, because of the nature of the artwork it could be quite difficult to offer high quality artwork after altering the words or color. Feel free to ask, but understand it is up to the artist's discretion whether she feels your request is achievable, or if it would be better served creating a new piece.
In any case, fulfilling such a request would include a minimal customization fee.

My order arrived incorrect/damaged. What should I do?

Please take photos of the incorrect/damaged products you received along with photos of any damages to the packaging it arrived in. Contact me, attaching the photos and including your order number. For printed items we will either refund you the cost of the products or re-send them one time to your shipping address.
Please understand that if it is a unique item or original piece, it may be possible to repair it to original quality, and options will be considered on a case by case basis, as sometimes these can not be replaced or recreated.

Can I cancel/refund/exchange my order?

All items are final sale. We can not offer cancellations, refunds or exchanges unless an item has been damaged in shipping.

(Except where prohibited by law, in which case buyer must contact me WITHIN 14 DAYS of receipt of item(s). Buyer is responsible for paying return shipping costs. Please contact me for a withdrawal form. Returned item must be shipped back in original resaleable condition within 30 days of original receipt to qualify for refund.)
