I cannot remember a day when I did not have a paint brush in my hand…or crayons or glue or scissors for that matter. I am that girl that dreams in big color and wakes up every morning with creative thoughts and ideas literally flooding my mind. Like so many of you, I have created all my life, whether I was picking a paint color for my bedroom or decorating the kitchen for a child’s birthday breakfast. I love almost every medium from drawing to mixed media, though my medium of choice is oil paint. My style is loose and impressionistic. I enjoy painting most anything from farm life to still life, but my favorite subject to paint is figurative.

My love for painting and my need to create is my gift from the Lord. Truly,it is my joy to give it back to Him everyday. I adore every opportunity to share Christ in my artful journey. My deepest desire is that God would use me and my gifts to glorify Himself and bring others to know Him personally. At the end of the day, It’s all about Jesus. Love love love, Ruthie

Hi, I’m Debbie and I sell fine art photograpy on Etsy at Petite Pastiche. As long as I can remember, I have had a deep appreciation of the beauty in simple things , especially in nature and human compassion. I have considered this a blessing and one that I wanted to share. Through photography, I hope I have found a way to reproduce the profound beauty and Grace I have witnessed and take comfort in, so that others might find nourishment there, as well.


Visit 25:40 Love website



Hi, I’m Jessica Dolan. My husband Tom and I started 25:40 love to help fund our international adoption. We knew though, that once our adoption was funded, we didn’t want to stop there. We decided to keep designing, building, and selling home decor products and donate 15% of our proceeds to a different charity each month. It has been a joy to dream up products, build them together, sell them and then donate part of our proceeds to some really amazing charities that we’ve partnered with. This month, a portion of our proceeds goes to the Battle For A Cure Foundation. Visit to shop for those you love while giving to those in need. We can’t change the world, but together we can change a life.

Little Bits of Everything INC. started 3 years ago, with two cousins who had a passion to create! Rachel and I (Haley) conspired together and wrangled up two cute blonde brothers and married them within 9 months of each other, first and foremost we are mothers and each have our own set of twins, Rachel has twin girls  and I  have twin boys as well as two daughters.  We both have a passion for all things home décor, sewing, painting and DIY. I originally started making farmhouse inspired signs, for my own home. We had a newlywed budget and I wanted more than anything to decorate and make our first home my own! Eventually my signs started filling the homes of friends and family and are now sold on our online shop all over the world alongside Rachel’s beautiful quilts. I never knew how much satisfaction I would find painting and sanding in my garage and I’ll keep doing it as long as our customers let me do so!

My name is Mary Cam Shaw. I am saved by Jesus, a wife to the sweetest husband, graduate of Auburn University, and lover of all things creative. I have loved art ever since I was little, and I always dreamt of starting a stationery business. I love hand lettering and I love to watercolor, so I combined the two and launched Lotes {love notes}.  In my shop you will find an assortment of notecards, enclosure tags, prints and more.  When I started Lotes, I had one goal in mind, to use my gifts to glorify the Lord.  He has so graciously given me these talents and I hope that my lotes will minister to others, and encourage them in Christ.  I love receiving a handwritten note, and I hope that Lotes will spread the love of Christ to others!
