Don't fret if you didn't win. There are so many more excellent artists lined up.
Today, though, I'm so happy to feature Nancy from Doodle Graphics!
Nancy's story in graphic design started 12 years ago. She was asked by a friend to fill a graphic design job without any experience! They showed her the ropes and the rest is well... read on!
In May of this year, a friend encouraged her to use her more than decade of experience to sell some of her own designs on Etsy.
Here's what Nancy had to say about her design process:
"Most of my design ideas come about because either I, or someone I know, needs a gift for someone. The idea for my newest print, My Peace I Give to You, came to me just the other morning. I woke up early with a dear friend on my mind who has just been told by her doctor that she has breast cancer. She and her husband have recently returned from 8 years on the mission field. I immediately thought of the scripture where Jesus told his disciples not to fear and that he would give them his peace! I grabbed my Bible and searched. There it was - John 14:27.
I thought... this is so powerful. She needs to read these words every day! A few drafts later....I had a beautiful reminder of God's promise.... to her.... printed, matted and ready to deliver. Later that morning I decided to design a series of God's promises to us and sign them ....love, Jesus. Kind of "love notes" from Jesus to us."
|Here's the design she made inspired by thoughts of her friend. Love it.|
Here are some of Nancy's other great designs...
|Custom Subway Art|
|1 Corinthians 13:4-8 What a great passage to have on your wall!|
|Another great verse...|
I asked Nancy about her shop.
"I love typography and I love God's word. They go hand in hand for me. So that's what you'll find a lot of in the shop right now :) Along with that there are a few coffee related prints (I live near Seattle and I LOVE coffee) and some Subway Style prints that are SO popular right now. My subway prints are all custom designs using 10 -20 of your favorite names, places, dates or words which I use to create beautiful typography unique to you!"
|I like this Ronald Reagan guy...|

I'm so thankful that you came and visited today. Tomorrow I will share about all the birthday madness that took place this weekend. Highlights? Weather. Family. Friends. Smiles on kids faces. Lowlights? I feel sick as I type this from eating too much cake and other junk. I will never eat again. Never. Shoot. I'll probably be hungry in an hour. That always happens. Ok. I said I'd share tomorrow so I'll share tomorrow. Must go lay on couch.
