Joy! print

A new print is available in the shop! This illustration was commissioned for a beautiful baby girl. She has already brought so much joy to many despite some pretty scary times her family has had over the past year. It's a beautiful story and I'm happy they invited me to illustrate it! And I'm happy I get to share the print with you guys too!
I'll be giving one of these prints away later this week. So leave a comment here and let me know about someone in YOUR life that's brought a lot of joy.

Hope your week is off to a good start! I finally got a sweet, vintage table to replace the less-than-attractive drafting table I've been using as a desk. It was a birthday present from my mom and sister that we found at the antique mall yesterday. Really streeeeetching out my October 10th birthday celebrating ; )  Now I feel like our bedroom/my office is just a few finishing touches short of complete! I'll show you pictures soon!

What a gorgeous print! It's adorable!
I'd really love one of those!!

Someone who brought a lot of joy to my life and does so every single day...is my beautiful daughter Leonie! She is the best thing that ever happened to me! She is my joy, my love, my pride...she is my everything! She had a rough start into this wonderful world and having her here with us IS THE BEST THING!!!

What a gorgeous print - <3 it!
What brings me joy? Jesus, truly without the joy of my Salvation and the joy He brings as my King I would not have joy in my life. And my soul mate and my four blessings are the daily outpouring of God's grace that overflow joy into my life!

Joy said...

LOVE this print :) My little family of four has brought me the most joy--my hubby and my two little girls. They make everything beautiful.

Fiona said...

It's definitely my nieces that bring me joy! And my step nieces and nephew. They're all so sweet!!

Love the prints and your blog. (:

JOY! =) Someone that brings me such joy is my dear friend Christina Hart. She is someone that I don't get to interact with on a regular basis, but when we do see each other laughter and encouragement are at the center of our encounters.

She is the friend that always sends me messages and texts out of the blue that brighten my day. We write letters back and forth and her letters are top notch, let me tell you! She is a friend that brings me joy, because she embodies it herself.

I heart Christina Hart! :p

Arian, I love your new print. What brings me joy.... a dear friend, who is 20 years younger than myself. Her name is Erica. I was able to disciple Erica and show Jesus to her - and then I had the awesome privilege of being a part of her baptism while we were in Ukraine on a mission trip. Her baptismal certificate is in Ukrainian! Her and her husband's sweet, young faith in Jesus is so precious to see. Her and her husband are expecting a baby, after 2 miscarriages! I have never been married and have no children of my own. They have asked me to be there in the delivery room when the baby is born! That brings me GREAT JOY - to see a dear friend who I saw brought from death into life in Jesus now give birth to a baby who I am confident will be raised to know Jesus too!!! THAT'S GOING TO BE ONE JOYFUL DAY for Erica, her husband and ME!!! I would love to give this print to her when the baby is born! Thank you for considering my "Joy Story"

I love your work! you are so talented!! What brings me the most joy right now is two beautiful kiddos named Jayden (4) and Brooklyn (1) who have a terminal illness but continue to thrive, shine, and grow in this world!

Beautiful work!
The person who has brought the most joy into my life is my son. No matter how a bad of a day I may be having he will always make me smile.

Lesley said...

so adorable! there are so many people that bring joy to my life, but on a daily basis i can count on my loving husband and our sweet puppy (she counts, right?) :)

Lisa Ensor said...

I love this print! It makes me think first of my dear friend Joy :)

Then of my husband and son. They both are the lights of life and I love staying home with my little man.

Love your blog! truly.

My youngest took her first steps this week. It was such a joy to watch her, she is so determined. Even though she falls down, she gets right back up and tries again with a smile on her face. It encourages me to live my life that way, not afraid to take that step into the unknown and to get back up and try again.

Christina said...

Ooohhhh! Cute print! I want! I want! :)

My parents-in-law bring me so much joy. You often hear horror stories about other people's in-laws, but I greatly treasure mine. They are so down-to-earth and loving. I feel very much like I am their daughter and enjoy their presence and guidance in my life. :)

I love your work. :)
Someone who has brought me joy is my grandma whose name happens to be Joy! I was named after her (my middle name). So I would love to hang this print on my wall or even consider giving it to my grandma for Christmas! :)

Kelly said...

As we took a family walk last night, I was thinking about how much joy my husband and daughter bring to my life. Thanks for sharing your beautiful new artwork!

Penny said...

Your art is so original, it's lovely.
Can I enter to win the print even if I live in New Zealand?
My husband brings me joy, he's amazing - he's just finished 5 years of hard study

Kelly said...

My son brings sooooo much joy to my life! I never could have known the joy that having a child brings to life if not for experiencing it myself. He's amazing:)

Brooke said...

This may be typical, but I am a newlywed who adores people and fall weather. This alone brings tons of joy to my life.

ej said...

My name is actually ErinJOY because my parents had to wait 7 years for me and i was their "joy" :).

My sister is my joy! She is my best friend and brightens up my life immensely!

I love your prints! This one is absolutely beautiful :).

Someone that has brought a lot of joy to my life is my little brother. He is 7 years younger than me and from the moment he was born, I have just loved being his sister. He is goofy and makes me laugh and he's compassionate and loves me well. Be brings me joy.
