Announcement    Hi, I’m Susan. Sweet Meditations are designs that combine my hand-drawn pen and ink illustrations and graphic designs with inspirational scripture and quotes that relate to life. I’ve created four designs that will hopefully match any home decor: Antique Leafy Vines, Mosaic Stone Tiles, Vintage Newspaper and Just Ink. Each illustration is accompanied by a meditation that is intended to encourage and offer a theme to help us focus our thoughts on God. Life can get tough at times, and it is my prayer that Sweet Meditations designs will be a reminder of God’s goodness, giving us hope and trust that He is working everything together for our good.

My Pen & Ink Journey

I began doing pen and ink in college, when I wanted to come up with some inexpensive Christmas gifts, and fell in love with the medium — loving how pen and ink captures light and shade, how simple pen strokes can bring an image to life. After college, I had some of my illustrations made into prints, framed them, and sold them by consignment at local Christian bookstores and rented space at a few local craft fairs. In 1996, I created Sweet Meditations Cards, a Christian greeting card line with short, encouraging messages. Doing the production and selling in addition to my full-time job as a graphic designer proved to be too much, so I decided to dissolve the business in 2010. During Christmas 2017, I once again needed to come up with some inexpensive Christmas gifts and decided to do some new designs with my illustrations and frame them. The designs ended up coming out pretty good, and some friends told me about Etsy. So I gave a fresh face to my Sweet Meditations brand and opened my Etsy shop. The inspiration that began so many years ago has been given new life.

I’ve always thought of myself as a graphic designer and artist who loves tapping into God’s heart and relaying His thoughts into a visual design that expresses His love. We are surrounded by the awesome creation of the Divine Designer, whose artistry no one can match. God’s creativity is intentional, combining both function and beauty. And God has designed us to be creative beings and has invited us to be involved in His creation — He tasked Adam with giving names to the animals He created. I feel blessed that God has instilled a small part of Himself, which is His creativity, in me.
