Opening a Shop ~ Bright Forest Studio

 It's official! After many hours of work I finally did it. I have opened a shop for my hymnal art. I am so excited and scared. It is hard putting your art and thus your heart out there for others to view. 
This all started with Illustrated Faith.  I started doing art within my Bible. Then it slowly moved to hymnal pages.
With so many churches going to projected words instead of hand held hymnals there is a plenty of churches looking to get rid of theirs. I collected a ton for the Illustrated Faith Workshop I am hosting with Shanna in Minnesota. To give an intro to the workshop I taught a class at Red Rock Bible Camp using some of the hymnals. It was so enjoyable that I started collecting more hymnals. Then doing more art with those pages. 

I started posting the art on my instagram site. I received such great feedback and orders from family and friends that a shop was born. 
I am truly hoping this shop will be a blessing to others. 
I want it to be what is written on Etsy, a place where art and grace meet. 
Art that people can hang in their homes that shows all who enter where their faith. A quiet testament to God's story. 
I hope you enjoy the art work.

No Longer a Phone Girl

This week I have been traveling for work. Hello, Cleveland! During this trip I have realized that I am not a phone girl anymore.
I use to be that kid who would wrap herself up in the 20 foot long cord or stretch it straight to get to my room. I would spend hours on the phone with friends. I remember my best friend and I would watch the after school specials together via the phone. We'd watch and as soon as a commercial came on we'd chat about what just happened. I am sure all of this phone business drove my parents nuts. Oh how we would have loved Face Time!
But life fast forwards more years that I would like to count. I have long lost contact with that friend and my phone habits have changed. I struggle to last minutes on the phone with even Steve or Mouse.
No I haven't decided texting is the only way to talk, I am not that young.
I think its the opposite. I want to sit with the person. I want to look in their face, see their reaction. Connect on something stronger than a phone cord. (yes, I realize their maybe a portion that read this that have no idea what a phone cord is)
