Daughter of Yahweh. Author-in-the-making. Cystic Fibrosis warrior. Lover of all things words and lemon. Furmama to Aslan. And wifey to the other half of my soul ♥
In early 2022, while talking with a close mentor friend, she mentioned she once opened an Etsy shop to supplement her income while she paused her counseling practice to undergo chemotherapy. And as I sat in the hospital for my seventh stint in two years toward the end of that October, I began daydreaming as to how I might do the same. Those who know me know I'm an unashamed office supply geek - My husband, Zack, has zero problem turning me loose inside a shopping mall, but thinks twice before leaving me unmanned in Staples - And one of my favorite things in the world is a good stone paper notebook. One afternoon, I had a fleeting thought in which I asked myself if I could learn to create more personal, meaningful covers and rebind them myself...
And in an instant, Breath of Life Handmade was born 😀
And there you have it! My little spot on the www, chock full of digital-art-turned-paper goodies inspired by my lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis, my love for all things words, and the breath my Abba continues to give me over three decades past my “expiration date”. I have had so much fun on this new adventure of creating artistic visualizations of His love that I hope bring joy to your hearts and glory to His name.
So welcome! Shop around. Just breathe. And write on.
