Bella's Birthday!

Along with one of my Christmas card orders, I was commissioned to design a birthday card for 3 (almost 4) year old Bella, who aside from her sweet name, 'likes dogs and pink'. A girl after my own heart. What fun!

I wanted to experiment with raised areas and of course add glitter and gems - what girl can live without either?! Here's the end product..

Roleymole meets Facebook

This week saw the launch of Roleymole to Facebook.. It took a lot of encouragement from people, both clients and friends to launch and promote my design more actively. To be quite honest, I wasn't sure it would be greatly received by people other than those who know me. How wrong could I have been!?
I was greatly encouraged by a very dear friend of mine to design some 'good' Christian Christmas cards, quite a few months back. So since then I've been see-sawing between going for it and waiting another year. 
Within this time, countless people have told me I should go into business properly, and assured me of the gap in the market that I would fill with good Christian design, admittedly there is a gap! So with God opening all of the doors, and lots of prayers for confirmation, I thought I'd take a leap of faith. And how much the Lord has already blessed that leap.
I've been inundated with orders, so many that I've had to double the card stock I ordered originally, and source some more wood. 
The element that fills me with the most joy is that by using the gifts and passion God has given me to make his words aesthetically beautiful, more and more people will be in direct contact with His words - for it's there where life is found. Fellow Jesus followers - please pray that the people who receive these cards will read His words of life and seek Him. Thank you all for your prayers, support and kindness!
Thanks be to the giver of all gifts! 
With love from a very overwhelmed,
Laura xx
