Captain America Cross Tech2 Pen

Cross Tech2 Marvel Collection Pen
I was so excited when Cross reached out for me to try their new Tech2 Marvel Collection pen, and even more excited when it arrived because my boyfriend is a major Captain America fan. It's both a classy ballpoint pen + stylus on the other end.

The fun part about hand-lettering to me is that I can use basically any writing tool and create calligraphy-style letters using a simple technique. I love that even a basic ballpoint pen can be used to create art in the right hands! And handwritten notes will always have a place in my life, no matter how much technology continues to grow. Everyone needs to have a good pen on hand for those moments!

Thank you Cross for sending me this pen that is a great blend of quality and tech functionality, especially for superhero fans.

Hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm looking forward to showing you guys some recent lettering orders that I have been working on. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing - remember to be present, grateful, and aware of God's presence in it all.

So as I was praying about what to share with you all, I decided to choose the words "You are enough" because being in relationship with God is enough to satisfy and sustain me. My identity is in Christ and His redeeming power to give me life. 

Feelings of inadequacy and insecurity are from the enemy - don't believe those lies! Hold fast to the promises of God and the confidence we have in Him. 

As long as we seek after God's will and abide in relationship with Him, what we do is enough. Instead of comparing myself to others, or finding my worth in what I do, I am choosing to declare that Christ is enough for me, and I hope that this reminds you all of the same.

I am excited for one of you guys to win!! I truly appreciate you all.

With a full heart,

Etsy Shop Now Open!

I've gotten so many questions about being on Etsy since I started Amanda Lee Lettering, and even though it's a little complicated trying to manage custom orders with set listings, 
I have taken a big step and opened up my own Etsy shop!

Use the promo code ALEESHOPETSY for 10% off your order of $10 or more, from now until the end of July! All signs and prints listed are still customizable to the text, size, and colors of your choice. Now is a perfect time to get that quote you've always wanted on a piece of artwork to hang or frame!

Can I be really honest? I was slightly terrified to take this leap. There are so many unknowns and details, and it's all pretty intimidating on my own. I've been feeling fearful of delving into the unknown, and anxious that I am not doing enough. I have felt inadequate and doubtful of my own abilities.

But I am confident that these feelings of fear are from the enemy, and that God has good things in store for the future. I am confident that He can transform our weakness into powerful forces for His Kingdom. My desire has always been and will always be that people will see God's light and love through my life and work. I trust that He will always provide for our needs, and that He will never leave us.

So here I am, slightly nervous, but also excited for what God is still going to do through my lettering endeavors. I pray that you are encouraged to take risks and pursue the purposes God leads you into. I pray that we will be fearless and intentional about glorifying God through our words and actions. I also hope that you will be blessed by the artwork you order and the posts that you read here. If you have already supported my work before, again I want to thank you. I appreciate you all so much.

If there's anything you would like to see in the shop, or if you have any feedback, I'd love to hear from you. Check out the shop and enjoy!!
