Lots of fun things going on over at Poppy Pedals lately. My 3 kiddos are out of school for summer so it’s very much a free for all–play dates, swimming, addressing envelopes, designing, new website and many more REALLY fun and exciting projects.
I’m slowly accumulating photos of my work for a new website. This has turned into a challenge for me! I have a little photography knowledge but after playing around at home with my product photography and never being satisfied I’ve thrown in the towel! It’s so nice to have close, talented friends come to the rescue in situations like these (sigh of relief!).
I’m not quite ready to reveal all of the gorgeous images but I will say Suzie and I had lots of help from two of our six little helpers!
P.S. This weekend I temporarily closed the Etsy shop. I’m working to fill it back up with lots of new products and art prints so stay tuned!
I literally couldn’t wait to share this project! Keri, owner of Grace Design Co., contacted me after seeing my work on Instagram (I love social media). I can’t wait to see what she does with the new design.
Just a quick post to share a submission I just entered into Minted’s Most Beautiful Quotes Art Challenge. This one really stuck out to me.
It’s not necessarily about beauty for me but it is most definitely about contentment in general. Recently our small group at church has been covering the sermon on the mount. One thing REALLY stuck out to me. Jesus said “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” I’ve read this a million times but I haven’t really ever READ it. Meek sounds like such a weak word. Sometimes, being the “strong-willed” woman that I am, I hate to associate myself with words like meek or submissive. Society has done a great job of making us reject the true meaning of words such as these by putting a negative spin on them. The fellow leading our class pointed out that meek can also be associated with the word content. THAT really spoke to me. Blessed are the content for they will inherit the earth.
Just as this quote highlights the truth of imperfection, that verse highlights the truth of contentment. How are we supposed to ever inherit the earth or be completely satisfied if we always want more. We always want something different. If you are content and satisfied you will have everything you ever dreamed of.
Just a little late night rant. I usually don’t include things like this on the blog but felt the insight shared with me was invaluable.
Late last year I worked on a custom project for an online client. I loved her party idea!
