A Christmas Favorite

As we all start getting out fave Christmas decorations, I can’t help but point to Lindsay Letters and all she has done and continues to do…this girl blows me away.  She was at the forefront of so much of the hand lettering and word art trend but I think her work transcends the trend.  And y’all I don’t think “word art” is a trend..WORDs are WORDS and they give life.  That is classic in my book. Our relationship started that day several years when I emailed her while thinking about my favorite Christmas hymn..”Could she put it on canvas?”…she is a YES person and it happened!

I still get emails from you all about this canvas! These words continue to put my heart on its knees…where I need to be all year long not just at Christmas!

And I love her photos below  . . .

And let me just be honest here for a moment.  I am posting these gorgeous pictures not because Lindsay paid or asked me, she has more followers than me and its not even needed.  I am posting it because her work and these photos make me happy and honestly they inspire me to embark on a HAPPY CHRISTMAS and MEANINGFUL, this year more than ever.  If you are client, friend or long time reader you know last Christmas was hard for my family and this has been a hard year.  As I started decorating today, I declared this would be a happy decor year.  Heck I may order one of those felt pom pom ball garlands.  Not sure about that but I do know that any ornament or fussy bow or decoration that made me feel ick went back in the box!

          Listen to me girls {face in hands} YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE EVERY DECORATION EVERY YEAR, you don’t even have to get all of the “tubs” down.  KEEP IS SIMPLE, do what feels good for you and your family. I know its a cliche (keep is simple sister) and its been said before but I pray pray you and I and others can remember it when we feel that pit in our stomach when scrolling Pinterest or Instagram.  You are enough, your decorations are enough!;

And these words on canvas both above and below.  They have new meaning for me this year and they just may for you too.  Words matter.  These words of faith matter most.

Light came into this world to pierce darkness.  forever.  and i am grateful.  so grateful.  More grateful for that than old rugs and good fabric.

So there you go.  That is how I am doing here..just wanted to give quick update.

Now back to Lindsay Letters, I love when she started doing other fonts and typeface and abstracts, it all mixes so well.

Her collaborations with other bloggers and designers show unity and how her work is loved everywhere..I hate to use the word transcend again but she does..age, denominations…preppy, hipster, traditional..we can all use these words and designs..love that. Good job Lindsay as you continue to grow and evolve!~

And these 12 days prints below . . . I am ordering them to put on the wall in my new studio with washi tape..quick easy and festive!

And did you know she just gave birth to a beautiful boy? But before she took off for maternity leave (are you really taking any time off other than the delivery day LL?) Lindsay styled and created all of this beauty! And there is a sale on NOW…not sure how long it lasts but try the code MERRY10 and be sure and follow her on Instagram so you can see the baby and all she does..LL is down to earth, real but creative and inspiring..that is a rare combo! Happy first week of Crazy December y’all! Go in grace and be gentle on yourself!
