Pretty Holiday Gifts

Thank you all so much who have ordered artwork from my shop this past weekend! You guys are the best, and this small business owner is so very grateful!

I am excited to share these new shop items with you, especially my custom floral watercolor prints. Each one is handmade and makes a great gift when framed!

These watercolor prints can be displayed in your home, office, or desk. I am happy to create a painting with the quote and colors of your choice too! Just message me on Etsy and we will work together to make your vision come to life.

Be sure to order holiday gifts BEFORE December 14 to guarantee delivery before Christmas!

Happy shopping loves,

Shop Small for the Holidays!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It's now that crazy time of the year, when everyone seems to be in a frenzy to shop for Christmas and snag all kinds of good deals.

So guess what! I have a late Black Friday (I slept in a lot haha), Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday sale starting NOW! Save 20% on any purchase from my Etsy shop with the code SHOPSMALL20 until Monday, 11/28/16!!

I just added this new wedding countdown chalkboard to the shop. It is a perfect engagement party or bridal shower gift, and a fun way to keep track of how many days are left until the wedding!

Need a Christmas gift for someone who has everything? Want to buy something personal and beautiful while supporting a local artist? You can order customized watercolor calligraphy prints to frame or hand-lettered signs, and get 20% off if you order this weekend!

Follow me on Instagram @amandaleelettering to stay updated on new products and deals! I've got more pretty things and great deals in store for you guys next month, and I can't wait to share!!

I hope that in the midst of holiday busy-ness, we all remember to be grateful for all the blessings that God provides us with. After all, every good thing is from Him and this season should be all about Jesus.

With love and lots of holiday cheer,

Hope in Jesus

Calligraphy chalkboard for a friend's Wall of Thankfulness

It's been quite a week already in our country. When words are insufficient, I turn to Scripture. 

We talked about lament in church last Sunday, and little did I know that it was preparing me for the grief ahead. I find myself trying to explain things logically to myself in order to grasp what it going on, but really what I should be doing is just allowing myself and others to grieve. Sometimes silence is better. I whispered prayers crying out to our God for my brothers and sisters, for my home. 

We need more of you, God.
More unity, less division.
More compassion, less judgment.
More wisdom, less opinion.
More love, less hatred.
More of Jesus, less of us.

With a hopeful heart,
