You guys, my first collection has made it’s official debut at my shop and I couldn’t be more excited!
The JOY Collection is inspired by this current season of life and how it intertwines itself in advent. As I’m sure everyone knows, advent is simply described as the anticipation of something and for Christians it’s the arrival of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Advent not only is this sense of anticipation, it’s also a time for reflection and sincere gratitude for the many blessings we’ve had. It took a few hundred years for the truest form of JOY to arrive and redeem us all from our sins, but it’s a promise worth waiting for.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
As I continue to reflect on my own, the phrase ‘choose joy‘ continues to jump out and speak to me. I continue to face challenges and testings of my own faith, but I am continually and equally reminded of God’s love and grace as I navigate through those uncertain, and often debilitating, times. One of the biggest tests that came from God Himself most recently for me had me face to face with making a decision. A choice. It was either to choose the darkness, isolation, and fears associated with my circumstance or choose joy. To see that the problems that plague me are not mine alone – to trust in Him with all my heart and to remember that by choosing joy I conquer the very thing that works tirelessly to keep me down.
Today, tomorrow, and forever I choose joy.
And in doing so I wanted to create and share this reminder with others – to encourage them that through those times of uncertainty, doubt, fear, and loneliness to always choose joy. I hope you enjoy this new collection and find yourself with daily reminders to make your own choice.
– The Collection –
This throw pillow is available with pillow cover and insert – no need to find a pillow to fit it! It’s made from a soft fleece and polyester blend and is hand-sewn after printing! The zipper is also hidden so no worries about snagging (my mom brain was excited about this!) or little fingers getting to them! And best yet, it’s completely machine washable so you’re sure to have a beautiful throw pillow year round.
Cotton Canvas Tote Bag
After creating my original tote for my Bible study materials I knew I had to have another cotton canvas tote bag as a part of this collection! It’s such a durable, but soft canvas that holds quite a bit – I was happily surprised! Each tote is screen printed from a CA based printer and is made to-order – specifically just for you!
With any collection there needs to be cute printable options and here you can purchase this print for only $3! You receive a ZIP file with your PDF and can print and hang your new print immediately! This quote print is perfect for adding to any gallery wall, dorm room, chid’s room, office, or even walkway.
*printables are for personal use only.
And lastly, I’m completely loving on my new ‘choose joy’ ceramic coffee mugs! Enjoy your own favorite hot beverage with this traditional 11oz mug. The quality of this mug surpasses other mugs out there – no vinyl or sharpie here. Each mug is professionally printed as well making it microwave and dishwasher safe!
