Art Print GIVEAWAY and Welcoming Baby C!

 

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.”

An Art Print GIVEAWAY with Faith and Composition

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!

Faith and Composition Revisionary Life And Babies Don't Keep Pencilled Daydream Phoebe Flock On Neutral Ground

Why did you start Phoebe Flock and where does the name come from?

i started it because i love creating things. and i was running out of space in my house and people to give things to.

phoebeflock was actually first my blog name, then my business name. i love birds. and i also love the name phoebe. if our first born had been a girl, he would have been “phoebe.” one of the reasons i started my blog was because i really value community and blogs are just that: community. i thought of a group of birds. a flock. a community.

so, there you go. phoebe flock.

napkins

What got you started with sewing?

i had an idea for what i wanted the nursery bedding to look like when i was pregnant with my son, samuel. i had pictures in my head and no idea how to make them a reality. my mom came to visit and she helped. she gave me tools. she listened and instructed. we sewed and sewed, and soon i had finished pieces in my hands. my ideas had become tangible and i was hooked. i had more pictures and concepts rolling around in my head and i wanted to hold them in my hands too. so i dug in.

What or who inspires you the most?

definitely stuff that God has made. i love seeing the color combinations He has put into place. dark grey tree bark with aqua lichen and an orange mushroom. the way a tree bends in the wind–toward the setting sun. the 5 blues on a bluebird. all of that. and the list is never exhausted–you’ve never seen it all. He made such cool stuff.

the need is also inspirational. my daughter wants a sleeping bag for her doll. hmm … how can i use half ideas i already have in order to make something useful for her? without the need i’m sometimes stumped.

a need or a picture. one of those things has to be present in order for me to be inspired.

Tell us about your favorite project ever.

so difficult to choose! i think i’d have to pick the first quilt i made. i made it for samuel, including scrap fabric from so many places–jason’s shirts, and auntie’s shirt here and there, some left-over things from his crib bedding. it is not a well made quilt at all, but it has a whole pile of love in it. and i remember how satisfying it was to see all of the tiny squares become bigger and bigger pieces. we all somehow end up under that quilt when we’re sick. it’s a good quilt–already falling apart, but good.

What would you say is the purpose of creativity in our lives, your life?

God is the Creator. He created it all. everything around, and in, us. when we create something, we are echoing His creative work. not only are we using gifts and materials He has given, but we are reminding ourselves, and the world that, yes, we are made in the image of God. He created–and, on a much lesser scale–i create.

the day-to-day purposes of the creative process is fleshed out in so many different ways in each of our lives– mine included. putting my creativity to work brings me joy and satisfaction.

i love creating. i think it’s one of His best ideas.

A Reading Group with Faith and Composition | Week Seven, Grace for the Good Girl

And in other news … today marks the last week of our F&C online reading group. I hope you’ve enjoyed journeying through Grace for the Good Girl with me. If you haven’t joined the group but would like to go ahead and start reading now that summer vacation is in full swing, you can start anytime. Click here for all the details, and here for weeks 1, 2, 345 and 6.

WELCOME TO THE FINAL WEEK!

This week’s reading covers chapters 17 and 18. As you read, consider the following questions for reflection, or use these as as a source of discussion for a larger group study.

What has been your main take-away from Grace for the Good Girl? How will you apply this to your life?

Have you had a painful situation that has caused you to have to trust God like never before? How did that experience ultimately impact your relationship with Him?

James 1:17 says “Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” As a busy wife, mom, etc., it’s hard to keep our eyes open to see the small gifts. How can we gratefully receive His small gifts even when they may come in packages we don’t expect?

When emotions or events tempt you to pull out one of your good-girl masks, what can you do instead that will cause to press into Jesus, rather than put on a mask?

Do you ever have feelings that usurp God’s truth or are contradictory to it? What are those feelings? What advice does Colossians 3:1-3 tell us about letting God’s truth reign, rather than our own emotions?

I’m looking forward to dialoguing with you via BookShout! this last week as you reflect on these questions. I hope to see you there!

Good Enough Mom: A Giveaway with Charity Craig

A "Good Enough Mom" Giveaway with Charity Craig | Faith and Composition

Today I’m excited to announce that I’m teaming up with Charity Craig at The Wounded Dove to offer you a fantastic little giveaway! Charity’s blog is filled with beautiful imagery and rich truth, but one of the things I absolutely love about this blogger is her heart for honest transparency. You won’t find sugar-coated content on her page; instead you’ll find real life, its peaks and valleys and always, ALWAYS, the God who has brought her through.

In an effort to encourage honesty in motherhood, Charity hosts the #GoodEnoughMom hashtag on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. In her own words, it’s a movement that recognizes “my kids don’t need a perfect mom, they need a good enough mom.” I couldn’t agree more.

To inspire other moms to eschew perfection, Charity created these head-turning t-shirts. And now, she’s giving one away to a lucky winner! If you agree that your kids need a forgiving, grace-giving mom, then this tee is for you. Entering is easy!

You can print the file as a 9 x 12 or smaller. If you like the print, I’d be thrilled if you would share! And please remember that printables are free for personal use only.
