illustrated faith: stronger together new devotional kit


happy june, lovelies! it's summer vacation for all of us mamas & maybe my household isn't the only one in need of something calming, soothing & quiet to depend on when the kids get a little wild ;) i'm excited to be diving in to the new illustrated faith devotional kit stronger together this month during household nap time -- i just love the beautiful, tonal colors and the idea of gathering together all across the world as a strong community of believers!


the new kit is soooo super cute & full of all of our favorite goodies!! these budget-friendly kits are priced at just $20 [be sure to use the coupon code IFSHIPSFREE for free domestic shipping], and this month you can optionally add an extra stamp kit for just $10 more.  plusssss -- washi tape is back in the kit this month, friends!!!

i've got a fun youtube video unboxing this kit that you can see below :]  the second half of the video is a sneak peek into my supply stash for the month as well as a few items i've pulled to create my DIY booklet for the month!


i'm so pumped for this month's kit & i can't wait to see all of your own creations as we journal as a community of strong believers together! xo

my 100 days of bible promises supply kit!


hey sweet friends! i hope you all have had a wonderful weekend & you're ready for a fresh week full of fresh grace!

i was so excited to open up a yummy package of happy mail this weekend with my copy of 100 days of bible promises -- the newest book from my darling friend shanna!! this book is filled cover to cover with God's goodness through devotion + prayers, gorgeous colors & plenty of empty spaces to be filled with journaling galore!

i just can't wait to start this 100 day-long project of diving in to God's promises for each of us & i'm REALLY pumped that we'll be sharing our growth in a fun little pop-up community group on facebook! you can join us in the group HERE & we'll be kicking off on april 3rd [but join in whenever you can, friends!]


as always, i love to pull together a kit of coordinating supplies so that i can intentionally focus each day on the words God will have for me rather than 'oh what paint color should i choose today?!' i started these project-themed supply kits back in november & it has been such a game changer for me for diving in to the Word but still holding on to the creativity of art worship!


everyone's top question for me is always -- 'have you chosen your paint colors yet?'.... you guys totally get me & my love for these pretty paints ;) i was able to sneak away to target for some fun crafty shopping while the kids napped & caleb worked on his 1980-something honda motorcycle [the project that just keeps giving, friends....] today & now i'm ready to share my colorful finds!

i had a good portion of these paints already on hand [yay!], but added a few to my ever-growing stash.  all paints are satin finish & include the following colors: elephant, azalea, shell, goldenrod, avocado, robin's egg, jade & deep sea.  i even grabbed up a set of the homemade modern paintbrushes in the same paint aisle at target to try out.... y'all watch for a mini review coming on that soon!


extra goodies i'm grabbing up.... 

a jumbo fabric paper clippie from my shop [those teal crosses are a must!], homespun alpha stickers, wordfetti booklet, washi tapes & my favorite pen!


i'm hoping to keep each page somewhat simple with just a wee little bit of paint along with a piece of ephemera goodness or two & a major focus on journaling.  i pulled four packages of ephemera from my current collection of paper pieces & i'm planning to scrap-bust my way through them in this project! a few of them are still available & linked below, but some are retired by their designers.  

and if you're wondering what that contraption there at the bottom is....


a handheld sewing machine.... what what?! oh yes, friends! this project is going to get so texture-y & fun! i found this little gem on amazon & have not yet tried it, but once i get her going you know she'll be joining us live on IG + FB for some epic bible journaling sessions :]

i truly can't wait to begin this project & i prayerfully anticipate God showing up in my life in huge, magnificent, colorful ways!!! will you be joining us for 100 days of bible promises, too?
