Elaine  Illustrated Faith Director of Digital Merchandise & Creative Team Member πŸ’› elainedavis@illustratedfaith.com #studio_peach

Yesterday & today have been so fab! Just solid crafternoons being creative with some of my best gals. I was supposed to be in Illinois this weekend for @scrapbookexpo . But I think my plans fell through for good reason. I needed to be elbow-deep in paint & stamps & glitter. 😊 My girls @heathergwdesigns & @confetticreativo have refilled my creative bucket!

Feels right to be getting this story down on paper. Details tend to run away the older they get.

Well hiya, #fridayintroductions !πŸ’‘ Welcome to my new followers! You've stumbled into the land of rainbows, embellished scripture, kitty photos, vintage goodies, colored beads, & good vibes. I'm Elaine! I'm the Director of the @illustratedfaith Print & Pray digital shop, graphic designer, artist, & dreamer. 😊 ( #dreamjob ) I teach Bible Journaling workshops & i LOVE meeting people from this amazing community! My husband Ian & i live in Central Indiana with our kitty Phoebe. I live, sleep, breathe art & faith. Make no mistake, I'm a work in progress: i lose my temper, panic, or get annoyed at life more days than not, but I'm getting better. πŸ˜‰ I try to be as genuine & transparent as I can on social media, which is why I often share my story living with diagnosed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder & infertility. Sharing my story has helped others, which is why I've been given these challenges at all. πŸ’› My hubski & i are currently undergoing OVI fertility treatments which has tested our faith time & time again. But we are faithful & know the end result will be 😍😍😍. I love bible/art journaling, scrapbooking, decorating our home, organization, online shopping, thrifting, photography, & making art out of things others might throw away. #usewhatyouhave Feel free to leave any questions you have for me below & know that I'm really glad you're here. πŸ’›

How about an #elainesfavorites roundup!? πŸ’›1. The Rainbow Encyclopedia by @hey_jules_studio was on the coffee table at @megduerksen 's #whatevercrafthouse & it gave me such a shot of inspiration, I knew I had to order it! Amazon Prime #forthewin πŸ’›2. This set of 3 butterfly stamps by @heroarts has been on repeat in my Bible pages lately! I got it at Hobby Lobby! πŸ’›3. The @fiberone Birthday Cake Bars are a game-changer. Diabetic snack friendly, 90 calories, & taste JUST like cake batter! πŸ’›4. I've been wearing my pink @converse shoes into the ground the past couple of months. πŸ’›5. The @revlon Kiss Balm is soooooo good. It's lightly tinted & I have it in cherry, strawberry, & peach. (The cherry is my favorite!) πŸ’›6. This flower clip from @beautyfromashesgifts is incredibly cute & so well made! #obsessed I'm waiting for the perfect Bible page for it. πŸ’›7. You all know I love my key necklace from @theadoptshoppe -- check out a few posts back to read my thoughts & feelings on it! πŸ’›8. We love taffy in this house, but it's hard to find yummy kinds that are sugar free. This taffy from @taffyshopdotcom is YUUUUMMMM. Made in the USA & you can buy custom flavor mixes! πŸ’›9. Our family photos taken by @winter.lawson were an easy choice as a favorite this month! Give her a call if you live in Indiana! πŸ’›10. @katiejocollections makes the SWEETEST felt clips. Gorgeous & such high quality. Seriously #idie The white one with the colored dots looks like confetti cake! πŸ’›11. The @paper_mate_inkjoy gel pens are the only gel pen I'll ever need I think. And I love that they come in #allthecolors ! πŸ™Œ

Hope you love my recent faves! What have you been in to lately!?

Yesterday I took the day off! 100% off. Like, I didn't even check my email. Which is huge for me. Even on my days off, I still check email several times, return messages, & work on SOMETHING. But not yesterday! I had a complete surprise in the form of my sister's van pulling into my driveway with her & my niece in tow! What a fun day with them! But I also took some time to start a project I've been meaning to do for a couple of weeks. I started a journal for our fertility story! (Hopefully it will transition into a pregnancy journal too! πŸ™) I took an inexpensive spiral bound sketchbook (6"x8") & recovered it + embellished it bc #obvs . I'll be documenting details of the treatment process in here as well as prayers & photos. Someday our child might want to have these details for a keepsake. πŸ’› I'll definitely share photos as I go! It will most likely be part at journal, part prayer journal. Looking forward to cutting & pasting in these memories!

Nothing like doing some 5 minute sightseeing in your own town on the way home from the store! 🌈

This necklace was made for me by my dear dear friend Kate @theadoptshoppe & it has unintentionally become my prayer charm for our fertility treatments. She made this piece for me because the vintage key has a # 3 stamped on it, symbolizing me, ian, & our baby. But all the layers of this necklace resonate with me: the heart cut out at the top of the key, the bible truth on the charm, & the rainbow symbolizing God's promise after a rough storm. I've worn this piece around my neck to every single appointment & scan-- even our initial consultation. It's been my "God Bless Charm"-- my reminder that He is in control & has the perfect plan for our family. πŸ’›

On a separate note: Kate is so incredibly talented-- her pieces are packed with meaning & heart. Go check out her feed & see how passionate & talented she is. πŸ’› #shopsmall

July was major for our family because we'll always remember it as the month we started our fertility treatments. But it was also all the moments spent with friends & family that made it such a sweet month for me. @winter.lawson @lydia_cost @confetticreativo @_craftyabigail_ @malinduuh @alocke67 @andrea.greiner03 @andiebjork @dancesparklequeen to name a few & I'm sure I'm forgetting someone! Love you all! You make my life wonderful!

For our workshop on Saturday we made custom stencils for the kits which was one of my favorite pieces to create! I drew this gumdrop & star pattern for our stencil & it turned out even more magical on a page than I envisioned. This stencil was a labor of love between @_craftyabigail_ & I trying to get it cut but it was totally worth it! We also hand cut leather stars for the kits as well & seeing how everyone is using them is simply magical. 🌟
.
But the real star of this page is the scripture. Have you read Hebrews 12:28-29? Don't even finish reading this post-- zoom in to the photo & read the typed text. I didn't even journal on this page bc that scripture literally says it all. Our kingdom IS unshakable & our God IS A CONSUMING FIRE! #praisehands .
