Joy is the Heartbeat of our Shop
In 2012, on a warm Saturday morning in November, my husband and I waited anxiously in a bright orphanage. At 9 am, the director arrived, carrying a serious(ly adorable) 6 1/2 month baby boy into the room. I burst into happy tears. Quiet. Happy. Tears. After months of waiting, piles of paperwork, and an indescribable amount anticipation, we were finally in Taiwan, holding our son for the first time.
And then, on an even warmer morning in July, we found ourselves back in Taiwan, meeting our 2.5 year old son, our second child, but older than our first! Shy, sweet, and with a quiet sense of humor, we immediately fell in love all over again.
Now, we spend our days chasing, laughing, gardening, giggling, and dreaming with our precious sons. Life is pretty beautiful. We started the 1500 Tree Project, in 2013, to fund our second adoption. 1500 trees made. 1500 trees sold. One fully funded adoption. Now, that adoption is complete, but we have fallen head-over-heels in love with making art!
This shop currently is the home of #faithcards, a digital download project featuring encouragement and color. Occassionaly, our original art on canvas appears in the shop, too! A portion of every sale goes straight to adoption and/or orphan care. Joy really is the heartbeat of our shop and the spirit I pour into every piece I produce. This is our family. That is our big picture. Where will you fall in The 1500 Tree Project?
(and I heart instagram big time -- so for lots of updates, follow @the1500treeproject on that app!)

Hi, I'm Angie! I'm the girl behind The 1500 Tree Project. I'm a wife, mama, and artist who loves to make pretty little things...once the littles are in bed. Welcome to my shop!
This is Nate, husband of Angie. "Hey sweetie, can you drop these boxes off at the post office?"
This is our first baby, our happy toddler boy, who keeps us laughing! He's also been known to run off with a colorful leaf or two if you let him get close enough...
The little man who started it all. Our second son, whose adoption we paid for by starting this little shop!
My husband and I adopted two boys from Taiwan, in 2012 and 2014. This shop began as a way to financially support our second adoption. 1500 trees made, 1500 trees sold, 1 fully funded adoption! Now, our adoption is complete, but we are head over heels in love with making art, we decided to continue on, and donate a portion of our proceeds to other families in the midst of the adoption process.
