The Story Behind the Goodness Lamb - Encouragement Kit for March
Precious friend, I am reminding myself that no matter the season I find myself in, I can find rest, comfort and even happiness in the precious promises from Psalm 23. A sweet sigh of relief washes over me when I read the words, “Surely Goodness and Mercy shall follow me ALL the days of my life”.
HE is The Good Shepherd.
I am His beloved sheep and HE is my beloved Shepherd. I pray you can find comfort, rest and reassurance from this Psalm. And that you can find JOY in knowing that His sheep, no matter the season, have the secret of happy life, death and eternity.
3 Ways to Use Our Refreshing Flour Sack Towels
One of our best sellers, our flour sack towels, is the most asked about of the classic products here at From the Heart Art. We are often asked...
"Well... what do you do with it?"
I am here to give you three creative ways to use our beautiful flour sack towels!
Decoratively, Intentionally & Dutifully!
No Matter The Ever-Changing Circumstances of Life, I Will Not Be Shaken
I have been blessed to share beauty with truth-filled words of encouragement through my artwork for more than twenty years. But in all honesty, this monthly Encouragement Kit — Lemonade Reminders — was born out of a stress-filled big batch of lemons!
The Kit became the beautiful result of a big stack of misprinted calendar art pages + a LOT of prayer + a calling to encourage women with scripture reminders + an open heart to try something new!
It’s January and a new season of letting go… We are moving…
Throughout the six years at Bluebelle we have been able to service hundreds of our local friends and customers, and also gain many new followers from across the country that found us while shopping at this local mercantile!
But... Change can be hard! Even a “good” change can feel hard because of the uncertainty of what’s ahead. I have a peace in the midst of the uncertainty. A peace that the world does not give. I can sense the Lord redirecting my attention and burning it deeper into my heart to continue moving in the direction of teaching women how to use their creativity to strengthen their faith, to tell their story and as a form of stress relief. Pray for me to hear clearly and to have the courage to obey each step!
HE Keeps Me Singing... Encouragement & Hope for January
When I asked Pam about this design, she recalled painting the bird first, then searching for a hymn to go with it. The black and white bird resembles a black-capped chickadee, which is in fact a songbird.
She then researched the backstory of this particular hymn and after reading about it, just soaked in the fact that suffering and sorrow is not new! People have been walking through it since the Garden. There have been countless people who God has worked through in the midst of great sorrow as they used words and songs to process their pain and write of His faithfulness in the midst of their storm... and there are countless more people who have come after them and are continuing to receive the blessing of their honesty and obedience. God continues to use their stories for our good and His glory! This gives tremendous HOPE!
Just like the bird keeps singing with hopes of his future days, and just like Bridgers wrote in his hymn, we can keep singing knowing Jesus is always with us! In all of life's ebb and flows!

Why I Love the True Story
Christmas Village, We Hated to Say Goodbye!
"I heard SO many stories giving God glory for helping [customers] overcome adversity, so THANK YOU to the overcomers! Each [person] had a different unique story but the same common theme... determination to give God glory, to count each day as a gift with a grateful heart despite the pain and loss. I needed that reminder each time!"
Overall, I think we all had a good time! We all share common themes with each other that we love God, and we love Miss Pam and her ministry! We are extremely grateful to be able to do what we do and share God's word with others through the beautiful products that we have! So thank you Christmas Village! We hated to say goodbye!
Deck the Halls with New Designs... Fa La La La La!
We have THREE new designs for Christmas that we are so excited to present to you! These designs are officially launched and you can shop them NOW in our Christmas Collection on our website.
The new designs are Wise Men, Go Tell It On The Mountain and Nativity Snow Globe. These designs will be available in all our classic product options, which includes tiles, flour sack towels, prints and Christmas Cards.
We are even MORE EXCITED to launch our NEW Christmas Ornaments!
We've Split! Just Our November Encouragement Kits Though!
We are including several products with our Fullness of Joy Path design since that is our theme design and verse, which will help you decorate for Fall.
But as we prepare to usher in Christmas, we wanted to include extra presents for our subscribers! One of the products is a flour sack towel with one our newest Christmas designs, the Wise Men. We are most excited about the reversible ornament with the Adonai Manger and Names of Jesus on it.
DIY Decorating for Fall + Useful Products = Happiness
The best thing about using products like these to decorate is that they are also USEFUL! I've basically created my own little space to enjoy. And this part is my favorite. Now I can pull out a journal, notecards, and our mini shareables. And enjoy some quiet time to do something that is a stress-reliever for me, writing.
Being surrounded in a space with scripture and God's Word makes any daunting task enjoyable. Because I know God is always looking out for me, always there for me, no matter what I am doing. Whether it's on my knees asking for help or asking for help trying to write out a grocery list.
Are you ready to decorate for Fall? (Using Something YOU Have Made Yourself!?)
Join me in this Fall Workshop!
I would love to invite you to join me in my studio so that I can share with you one of my very favorite creative techniques called Mixed Media. In this workshop, I will show you how we can take old objects, that some folks might have discarded at a thrift store, and give them new life and purpose. By adding some basic art supplies, combined with our own God given creativity, we will make a beautiful piece of art for your own home or to give to a friend!
