Grace Upon Grace - New Print in the Shop!

I've had this verse inked and saved on my computer for a while now, just waiting for the time to paint some pretties to adorn it. I just couldn't come up with something (I was also without spare time to make up anything!) I guess I was also feeling slightly uninspired. It's been so cold, and I've been working on projects that just aren't my style, and I was struggling to get back into my groove. So in the mean time, I was pinning inspiration florals to my Pinterest boards, to go back to at other times, times like this. Thank you Pinterest, for allowing to keep my hard drive free of all the images I want to hold on to for inspiration.

I chose to paint some little lilacs to go with this verse. Lilacs remind me of spring, and I love watching the new buds of all the new kinds of growth peeking through the snow and muddy ground, and popping up on the barren trees. It reminds me of grace, the grace from God. We don't deserve any of God's love, because we as humans are just awful, yet, He keeps giving it to us, no matter what the day looks like. Just like the new growth, grace looks out of place in our rotten filled lives. Somehow, God's love peeks through our rottenness, and we have the chance to grow, to bloom. 

This print is now available in the Shop. You can get it three different sizes, mailed right to your home! Let it be a reminder of God's grace in your life too.

April Phone and Desktop Wallpapers - Free Downloads

Has your March been as beautiful as mine was? It's been so nice to finally have some temperatures above freezing, with lots and lots of sunshine! Such a welcoming warmth streaming in my windows, making for happier moments throughout the day. My cat has been loving it too, starting to spend more and more time outside again, after being cooped up for the last couple months. 

I'm sorry that I missed the monthly free desktop calendar and phone wallpaper downloads for the last couple months. I've been swamped over here, and the beginning of the months just slipped away from me. Before I knew it, the months were halfway over, and it seemed to late to give you a monthly calendar. My friend Dana sent me a little note in the middle of March, asking if the wallpapers were going to come back for the spring. Thankfully, I knew that I had time to get a new one painted, and here it is, all ready for you!

Like the last couple months downloads, I'm offering you TWO downloads. One for your computer, and one for your phone! Clicking the photos below will take you to Flickr, where you can download the file for each! (Once in Flickr, just click the downward pointing arrow in the bottom right corner of your window to download.) Or, you can just save the images at the top of this post for the computer wallpaper, and the bottom of this post for the phone wallpaper!

Do you have any ideas for what you would like to see for the May desktop and phone wallpapers? I'd love to hear your ideas! Share in the comments below!
