Friday Favorites | March 27, 2015

Friday Favorites, March 27, 2015 | Faith and Composition
Sweet friends, I am literally giddy with excitement that I will be attending the HopeSpoken conference this weekend. I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the event, and this year’s conference sold out fast! I was a little late on the draw, and couldn’t snag a ticket. But a few days ago, the lovely Bonnie Rush of A Golden Afternoon hosted a giveaway for one conference ticket. By some strange combination of grace and sheer luck, I won the ticket. Thank you again, Bonnie, for hosting such a gracious giveaway!

I can’t wait to share the details with you, and I am excitedly looking forward to filling up on Jesus and getting the chance to fellowship with like-minded women, many of whom I’ve befriended through blogs and Instagram but have never personally met. It will be such a blessing to finally get to meet so many of these women face-to-face.

In honor of HopeSpoken, I’m featuring four conference vendors/contributors to share with you for today’s Friday Favorites. Each of these ladies creates products of impeccable artistry, and they have a beautiful heart for Jesus. Go check them out!

1. Better Life Bags exists to empower women through the creation of gorgeous custom bags. Based in Detroit, they employ low-income, often first-generation-immigrant women to craft the bags, thus giving these women a skillset and an income. Love their mission!

2. Thirsty Hearts Design is a little Etsy shop by Angela Poston that will breathe life and hope into your heart and your home. I especially adore her art prints and her wood signs. 

3. The Felt Flower Shop creates jaw-dropping floral creations out of felt. The succulent boxes and wooden letters are absolutely darling!  

4. Joyful Papery brings beauty into the everyday with her hand-lettered paper designs. Her sweet sentiments and watercolor creations create a contagious sense of joy.

Have a great weekend, friends! I’ll be back soon to share about HopeSpoken and to talk a little bit about Easter!

Friday Favorites | February 6, 2015

Friday Favorites, February 6, 2015 | Faith and Composition

Today I’m excited to start a new series on the blog, something a bit more lighthearted that will give me an opportunity to share some of the things I’m loving right now. I’m dubbing it Friday Favorites, and today is the first installment. Every other week (or each Friday, if I’m ambitious), I’ll pop in to feature some of the lovely things that have caught my attention. They may include products I’m smitten with, books I’m reading, songs I’m loving, foods I’m craving, and more. So check back each week for recommendations that I think you’ll love as well.

Now for today’s first Friday Favorites: 

1) I love Lauren Daigle’s heart-moving song, “Let it Be.” I’ve had her station playing without interruption on Pandora for a week now. Go ahead and queue it up. It will bless your heart, promise!

2) I recently discovered Haute Hope via the Grit & Grace Instagram feed, and I was instantly smitten. Founded by Jess Puccinelli (who is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside!), Haute Hope curates a collection of breathtakingly beautiful gift boxes that give a portion of proceeds back to charities. I mean it when I say I haven’t seen a prettier collection of gift boxes anywhere. The contents, the packaging, the attention to detail are all impeccable. If you’re seeking a gift for a birthday, Valentine’s day, bridal shower, anniversary, or any other special event, be sure to check out the stunning collection at Haute Hope. You can also follow all the loveliness on Instagram.

3) Our weather is still a bit cold, but warmer days are on the way, and nothing puts me in the mood for spring like tulips. I picked up several pots of tulips at my local Trader Joe’s last week for a mere $2.99! That’s less than a latte, and the joy they will bring will last so much longer. If you have a Trader Joe’s nearby, hop in and snag some!

4) This gorgeous print designed by Jenn Sprinkle features the theme verse for IF: Gathering 2015. At just $12, the gold-foil art piece is a lovely way to put scripture on your walls. And speaking of IF, are you going? I‘m so sad that I can’t attend the much-anticipated event this weekend (I mean … I’m really bummed). Some family circumstances have prevented that from happening. However, you can bet I’ll be following along on the Live Stream. You should too; With names like Jennie AllenLauren ChandlerJen HatmakerAnn Voskamp, and more, you know there’s going to be some anointed teaching! 

That’s all for this first installment of F&C’s Friday Favorites. Have a blessed weekend, friends!

October Love | Free Printable

October love

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty smitten with the fall season. Unfortunately, fall isn’t as smitten with Texas. So in an effort to usher in a little bit of the autumn spirit and in honor of the first day in October, I made this sweet, simple printable to remind me that—despite the 90-degree temps outside—it is indeed the season of pumpkins and spiced cider. And because I adore each of you for reading, I’m sharing the print with you too. If you want to bring a bit of the season inside, or you simply want something to pretty up your space, print your own October love 8×10 right here.

Thanks for reading, dear friends! And happy October!

An Art Print GIVEAWAY with Faith and Composition

This giveaway is now closed. The winner as selected by Random.org is Jamy Smith. Congratulations Jamy! Please e mail me at shalene(at)shaleneroberts(dot)com with your address, so I can get the print shipped out to you!

On Thursday, July 17, my brother and sister-in-law welcomed their first child into the family. We couldn’t be more excited for them, and I can hardly wait to meet little baby C! I’ll be taking his newborn photos soon, and I’ll share a few pictures from the session later, if they’ll let me.

In the meantime, I designed a nursery art print to adorn the little guy’s room. And now, I’m thrilled to share one with you! The 8×10 art print is the perfect way to deck a little boy’s nursery or the walls of a playroom. The tone-on-tone design features a hand-drawn deer, with a scripture from Jeremiah 1:5. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.”

The gallery-quality Giclée print is available for purchase from Society6 in a variety of sizes. It is printed on natural white, matte, ultra smooth, 100-percent cotton rag, acid and lignin free archival paper. The piece is also available as a stretched canvas.

And because I appreciate each of you so much, I’m giving one print away to a lucky reader! Hang it in your son’s room or a nature-themed little girl’s room, or frame it and gift it to an expectant friend or new mom. Wherever it hangs, the art piece will be a visual reminder of the goodness of God! Entering is easy!

Succulents in a Coconut Half Shell

Succulents in a Coconut Half Shell | Faith and Composition

With spring in full swing and summer beckoning just around the corner, I find myself longing to infuse some fresh air into tired spaces. From a figurative standpoint, I’m trying to make a little room for some white space in my mind; trying to clear some anxious thoughts and replace them with the peace that passes understanding. And from a literal standpoint, I’m bringing a bit of green into our home.

I’ve always loved having living plants throughout our home, but admittedly, I can’t always keep them alive. Enter succulents. They’re rather fuss-free, so long as they’re planted in well-draining soil and are situated in a spot that gets plenty of sunlight. If you’re looking for some living greenery that is easy in the maintenance department yet big on visual appeal, succulents are the way to go. And for an interesting presentation that adds texture and contrast, plant your succulents in a coconut half shell. For tips on planting, click here.

Succulents in a Coconut Half Shell | Faith and CompositionA coconut half shell serves as a perfect vessel for succulents. It’s impermeable, and the size is ideal for nestling one small plant inside. When planting in a coconut half shell, use only the half that has the coconut eyes. Those eyes will rest on the bottom, anchoring the shell and allowing it to sit flat when atop a table or shelf.

How about you … how do you bring greenery into your home? In what creative containers have you potted succulents or other plants?
