Are You Ready to Decorate For Spring!?

Are You Ready to Decorate For Spring!?
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!

3 Ways to Use Our Refreshing Flour Sack Towels

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

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…

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!

Behind the Story of our New Words Worth Remembering Calendar

Behind the Story of our New Words Worth Remembering Calendar
Before even starting the artwork for this 2023 calendar, I started asking the Lord what would HE want for us. Since He already knows what 2023 holds for us, I wanted Him to lead me to the verses that He knows we will need to be reminded of in the new year. I kept being drawn to the verses in the book of Psalm and to the time-tested old hymns! I asked the ladies on our Facebook page what did they want to see in the new calendar... I heard critters! So, guess what you will find in this 2023 calendar? Of course, some florals, but also critters with soft faces, sweet eyes and beautiful reminders from Psalms and hymns to point our attention to our Good Father. May He be glorified by the artwork I've created. And may you be encouraged by knowing Him even better in 2023. 

Do You Know Why Lemonade Creative Hearts Was Started?

Do You Know Why Lemonade Creative Hearts Was Started?

A mishap in 2020 drove me to my knees in prayer, the desperation opened my mind, and God planted the seed in my heart. And Part Two of the Lemonade Story is about me opening my mind to be willing to do something that so many women have been asking me for throughout the years. Which led me to begin Lemonade Creative Hearts.

Lemonade Creative Hearts (LCH for short) is a monthly practice of renewing your mind, and focusing on Truth, even when life gives you lemons.

He Will Perfect That Which Concerns Me

He Will Perfect That Which Concerns Me

David had repeated encounters of having his enemies on all sides. He had been surrounded by danger. He knew tragedy. And David knew the depths of great sorrow over his own sin and the grief over the weight of the consequences birthed from those sins. And yet, he could write this psalm with great confidence!  

“The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.
Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever -
forsake not the works of Your own hands”  Psalm 138:8

How to Use Discomfort for GOOD!

How to Use Discomfort for GOOD!

So, friend, receive the comfort from these powerful verses [of Psalm 139], BUT I also want to encourage you that even the discomfort can be useful! Welcome the blessing of the vehicle that leads you to the foot of the Cross!  

“Search me (thoroughly), O God, and know my heart!  Try me and know my thoughts!  And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23 & 24 Amplified

You are NOT overlooked. You are not forgotten. You are not unheard. You are NOT a mistake!  You are KNOWN by Him. You can praise Him because you ARE fearfully AND wonderfully made BY Him!

I hope you can take a few moments to read our blog and read the 24 verses of Psalm 139. Read them slowly to soak on the words and let them sink into your heart. The words are describing a Good Father and His precious child. These verses are incredible Truths to combat negative thoughts and feelings.

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:8

The beach is often the birthing place of many of my designs, especially when I need to create a big batch of artwork. The ocean helps me tune out the everyday responsibilities of my crazy life to refocus on my calling. I’ve noticed that when my mind gets calm, my “eyesight” is crisper and my hearing is clearer. Which is basically what the verses on these designs are about!
