New Printable: Sugar, inspired by Maroon 5

sugar-mockupLately I haven’t been able to get the song “Sugar” by Maroon 5 out of my head, and if you haven’t seen the music video for it, go watch it because it’s adorable. Even my husband loves the song (and he isn’t the biggest Maroon 5 fan), but as he says: “It’s just so catchy!”

I’ve been messing around with some typography and came up with the idea for this print, inspired by the song. At first, I wanted an ink blot for the print; something darker, but then I thought about coffee (which has become a sort of life blood since my son was born) and how the print can have sort of a double meaning.

I kind of fell in love with this design, and thought, “shoot, this would look super cute on a coffee mug.” So I headed over to cafepress and whipped up a couple of cute designs I thought I’d share with ya’ll.

My heart is full – New print in the shop and the origin behind it.

mason-mockupI’m excited to share my latest print available at my etsy store for only $5.00. I thought I’d write a blog post about this one because I absolutely love it, and not just because of my obsession with mason jars lately. I wanted to share the meaning behind it.

Have you ever had that feeling where your heart is completely full of love, and you don’t know that you could love any more than you do in that moment? I have, hundreds of times.

When my husband and I married, we were young. He was 22 and I was 21. Even though I’d listened to my dad tell me stories about how he grew to love my mom more and more as the years went by, I still walked down the aisle arm in arm with him, staring and my soon-to-be husband, wondering how on earth I could love him any more than I did in that moment.

My heart was full.

This year we’re coming up on our 5th anniversary. In the grand scheme of things, it may not be that long, but in our 5 years of marriage we have watched other marriages within our circles fall apart and dissolve. It hasn’t always been easy by any stretch of the imagination, but after (nearly) five years of marriage, I finally get what my dad was saying back then. I love him more and more each day. We’ve managed to grow together, not apart.

And then we got pregnant. After nearly a year of trying, we were blessed with that positive pregnancy test. As my belly grew, fear began to creep up on me. My heart was already so full of love, how could I love this tiny person growing inside of me? What if I couldn’t love him enougMy-heart-is-full-mason-printh? When he was born and I first laid eyes on him, I knew I’d love him for the rest of my life; knew I’d do anything for my son. Over the past year as he’s grown, I find myself loving him more and more.

Instead of my heart being too full to love another person, my love multiplied. That’s what I’ve learned over the years; the more you love, the more love you have to give out.

So that’s where the inspiration came for this print. What I’ve learned is that my heart is always full, but the more I love, the more my heart has the capacity to grow and hold even more love to give out. This print is a celebration of that. I hope you enjoy it too.

If you’re interested in purchasing this print, feel free to head on over to my Etsy Store.  It’s only $5! I’m looking forward to starting my own “inspirational” wall at home that’s chock full of printables, and this one is definitely going up on the wall.
