I am certain it will come as no surprise to you that I love the written word.  I have loved to read since I started learning phonics.   Then came my love of design or what I prefer to call, my love of pretty things.  I painted and drew and used my hands to make things pretty.  Somewhere along the line my two loves combined into the love of pretty words.  There is an art form to putting words on a page:  a thoughtful quote, a scripture, advise.  All of these things can have a greater impact when combined with design.  For example, here is a favorite scripture:

"Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may find mercy and grace in time of need."  Hebrews 4:16

Beautiful, yes?
