A Cuppa with Katy Day

katy day

Sit down, snuggle up and get ready to know the talented Katy Day a little bit more, one of the amazing Cheerfully Given sellers….

1. Introduce yourself to us in one sentence ….

Katy Day- A work in progress (Philippians 1:6) mainly running on coffee and Jesus!

2. What is it that you make?

I design and make jewellery, my passion being creating Christian jewellery that will spark conversations about the gospel. I have a shop on Etsy that sells a mix of secular and Christian jewellery and also on the new website Cheerfully Given which a Christian based website .

3. Tell us the story of how it all started.

I started making jewellery when I was pregnant with my son, 12 years ago, as a hobby. After bible verse bracelet on backing carddabbling with selling it to friends and family and at craft events I went back to work as a primary school teacher when my youngest started school. However, it became apparent in only a few years that teaching and motherhood weren’t compatible due to the long hours worked and a very grumpy snappy mum not being around for those all important chats and laughs that are fundamental to family life. After praying and trusting where God was leading, I left teaching in 2014 in order to seriously concentrate on my business and it has been blessed by God and growing steadily since! God has directed my path the whole way along and continues to do so, he’s the ultimate ‘Boss’!

4. How do you include your faith into your work and what you make?

katy day jewelleryAt craft events/parties I always take a mix of Christian items and secular, as a a kind of silent witness. I try and conduct my business relationships as an example of my faith as well, remembering that I should work ‘wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people,’ (Ephesians 6:7) It’s important to me to try and include God’s word in my pieces, either directly as part of my designs, like my fabric bracelets which I print myself or the stamped bracelets, or in a personalised way, such as my sterling silver jewellery which is presented on a card with scripture.

5. Do you have any inspiration or encouragement for us?

That everything takes time! When I was younger I was so impatient and used to run ahead of God a lot when He gave me an idea and then I’d waste time having to turn round and come back into line with Him! Now I’ve learnt patience and not to be so hard on myself when I don’t get it ‘right’ the first time. Or the second. Or the tenth! That time with your children, not things (or even ‘experiences’) is what really matters. Those times in the car chatting, or when they climb up on your lap just before bedtime (my kids still do this!!!) or want to tell you about their day…those are the times that your relationships get closer. Honesty as well, I tell them when I don’t know the answer, I say sorry a lot when I’ve done something wrong. Pray with them, even when it seems they don’t take any notice, you will look back and see God’s hand on their lives and be able to tell them. My daughter is 14 and has just made a re-commitment (praise God!) after a difficult few years, my son is nearly 12 and also made a re-commitment this summer. I can see that God still has a lot to do in them, but that’s ok, He is still working on all of us! The most important thing…teach your children about Jesus, or the world will teach them not to. Talk about God, His word, the truth of it every day in ‘normal’ conversations and situations. As the world grows more fake they need His truth to stand on more than ever.

A Cuppa With Rory Henderson

 

rory henderson

I am carrying on my series of “cuppa with” interviews by chatting to the very talented Rory Henderson, who has been working on something very exciting…..

1. Introduce yourself to us in one sentence ….

Hi, my name is Rory and I’m a graphic design student that likes to make nice images.

2. What is it that you create?

boatEverything! That may be a slight exaggeration, but I enjoy a wide range of things. I like to make posters and videos and all sorts of imagery. I mostly use a computer, but I always involve a large range of techniques in what I do, like photography, illustration, CGI and typography. I especially enjoy working with others, as it means I can help them express their ideas in the best way possible. I try to be as flexible as I can as an artist, and that means I usually end up producing a wide range of things for a wide range of ideas. At the moment my interest is primarily in typography, but in the end I could probably be summed up as an image maker. There’s so many different ways out there to make art, the endless possibilities are very exciting. And I’m only really at the beginning of it all!

3. Tell us the story of how it all started.

I never considered doing art seriously until after looking at potential universities, when I found out that you could make a career out of being creative, who knew! I wasn’t even taking art as a subject at the time, so I took some convincing and encouraging from friends and teachers, but I ended up making a portfolio in my free time which showed me how much I enjoyed being creative, and got me into uni. I originally wanted to do a subject called creative advertising – as the emphasis was all on idea generation and being innovative and thinking outside the box – but I am thankful that I ended up doing graphic design, as it offers me such freedom in my creative practice.

4. How do you include your faith into your work and what you make?

Because I make a wide range of things, I often end up working on projects that don’t allow me to express my faith in my art. But I try to always include it, to whatever extent possible. The graphic designer however is almost always serving others, so I can do this to the glory of God! Creating and being creative is a wonderful gift and it always makes me think how much my own creations pale in comparison to His.

I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity of my most recent project, a collaboration with the blog Gospel Centred Parenting, as it allowed me to put the expression of faith as the most important aspect of the project, with the aim of communicating that to families and helping people grow in love for Jesus. The project was a set of Jesse Tree Ornaments, each with a design relating to a story from the Jesus Storybook Bible to help families anticipate Christmas. For this I reimagined old woodcut techniques, and it was incredible being able to follow Jesus through all these stories and make images out of them. I really enjoyed this and hope others enjoy them too, and I look forward to more opportunities to share my love for Jesus through art!

(I spoke to Cathy from Gospel Centred Parenting earlier this year – catch her cuppa with interview here!)

 

 

 

5. Do you have any inspiration or encouragement for us?

When I create things, rarely if ever am I fully pleased with the end result or the way things turn out. I find it incredibly encouraging that our own creator doesn’t feel that way about us! We were made through him and he rejoices and delights in that creation, so much so that he would die for it, for us!

6. Please share a photo of your favourite mug!

This is my tiny minions mug! Sorry, I’m not much of a tea or coffee drinker but it works just fine for hot chocolate.

A Cuppa with Gidsy and Jo

IT’S BACK!!!  Yes, your favourite tea time interview series is returning, and this time with a creative theme.  I have been speaking to lots of creative Christians to find out what inspires and motivates them.  So snuggle up on the sofa with your favourite mug as we chat with our first cuppa with our first suspect…..

1. Introduce yourself to us in one sentence ….

I’m Martha – I design embroidery and sewing projects for mums to do with and for their kids, then write all about it on my blog ‘Gidsy and Jo’.

2. What is it that you make?handmade dolls

Although I started out making soft toys for my sons and their friends, I realised that so many mums I knew wanted to make and craft for themselves, it might be better to turn the toys into beautiful, high quality kits that mums could afford. Making bespoke soft toys can be a pretty expensive product! At the moment I sell on Etsy and Not on the High Street, but my big passion is writing about creativity and creating projects for the web. I do this on my blog and guest post on some others too. Basically, if I can enable you to make something you’ll be proud of, then that’s what I want to do!

3. Tell us the story of how it all started.

embroidery mermaidI’ve got a degree in textiles and embroidery and worked sourcing shoes for the high street after I finished uni. At that time I was travelling quite a bit and learnt a lot about how products are sourced and developed overseas, then brought back to the UK high street to sell. After I had my first son the place I was working at told me I could go back full time or not at all. Faced with that choice I chose the latter. My boys are quite close in age (18 months apart) and by the time the little one was about eight months old and I was up to my eyes in nappies and sleepless nights, I found I was desperate for a creative outlet. I couldn’t get my head round making anything – I was just too tired! Somehow I stumbled on a blog from a link out of Etsy and thought I’d like to have a go at it. My husband set up my first blog. I had no idea how to use WordPress, take good photos, or what to write about, but over the space of about three years I just kept posting, really for myself, and had also started an Etsy shop. When my youngest son went to school last September, I decided to really concentrate on growing my products and my blog and write for other people, to solve their problems, rather than for myself. Although there are quite a lot of ups and downs, I feel incredibly fortunate to have that opportunity.

4. How do you include your faith into your work and what you make?

I think we’re made to glorify God and enjoy Him and be satisfied and reliant on Him, and I don’t think that having a faith means you have to make creative work specifically about what you believe to do that. God’s nature is as the most wonderful creator there ever was, so making things is in His likeness. When we do that to serve and help other people, and do it as beautifully and excellently as we can in the world, I think that’s an expression of being like Jesus. I talk to Him every day and ask for the wisdom to take my business forward and to hold it lightly and not let it become more important than He is.

5. Do you have anything to encourage us?!

My encouragement would be that nothing, not even doing what you love (because it’s always fraught with uncertainty, doubt, highs and lows!) can give you satisfaction or security like knowing Jesus will. Also, something I’m learning is to trust Him more, so that when my plans don’t come out the way I thought, I know He’s still in charge and it’s still all good.

6. Please share a photo of your favourite mug!

Mum on a Mission Reviews – Katy Day Designs Bible Verse Bracelet

review of fabric bracelet

At the beginning of 2017, I became a crowdfunder for a great Christian business called Cheerfully Given.  You may remember me sharing it in my monthly inspiration posts!  Cheerfully Given is an online marketplace that allows other Christian creatives to sell their products all in one place.  Which means that if you ever want to buy an amazing christian gift you only have to search in one place (yey!!).  Through being involved in this, I have started following some fabulous new craftspeople on instagram, including the lovely Katy Day Designs.

becoming a brand rep

bible verse fabric braceletEarlier in May, whilst on holiday, I spotted Katy Day putting out a plea for brand reps to help launch her new limited edition range of fabric bible verse bracelets.  These were one of the items that I had seen on her instagram and really loved – printed with different bible verses they would be a constant reminder of a key verse all the time.  So I put my hand up, ordered my favourite bible verse bracelet from the new ones being launched and the rest is history!  As a self-confessed “creative heart” who used to run a craft company, I know how hard it is.  I know how hard it is to do absolutely everything – think of new ideas, create in bulk, think up pricing strategies, promote your products, do the accounts, and everything else that being an independent business person entails.  So I want to help big up an amazing talent and hopefully show you one of her fabulous products that perhaps you might like for yourself or a friend.

Limited edition braceletfabric bible verse bracelet up close

Katy makes these lovely bible verse bracelets.  In a way they reminded me of a much improved version of the “WWJD” bracelet that I used to wear as a teenager – proudly, yet discretely, showing off that I was a Christian (if you were also a christian you would know what it meant!) and reminding myself daily during the hardships of school/uni/whatever that God was with me. These fabric bracelets however are much prettier and easier to show off to others.  This means that not only will they look good and remind you during your daily activities of God’s presence with you, but will be a door opener to conversations with others.  I know that when Katy designed these she had evangelism in mind, so why not give it a go?  If you are someone who finds it hard to start up God conversations, then having little prompts and conversation starters around can only be a good thing.  Lets start to prepare for evangelism instead of just hoping it will happen.

Quality product

bible verse bracelet on backing cardWhen my new bible verse bracelet arrived, it was beautifully packaged in tissue paper and ribbon, on a lovely backing card displaying the verse that is printed on the bracelet (sometimes due to sewing and where the silver heart is you can’t always see the whole verse).  I kept thinking that this would be such a lovely gift to surprise someone with.  The fabric is a lovely pale blue colour and the sewing and attaching to clasps looks very good quality.  I have worn it everyday since receiving it and had no problems with it (except my lack of ability to put it on!).  My only recommendation would be to take it off if you are planning dirty/wet activities instead of embarking on a muddy gardening task with it on……

Affordable

These fabric bracelets start at only £10.99 and go up to £16.99 depending what charms and additions you want to add.  For the quality of product and hard work put into making it, prettiness and how it might help with evangelism I think it is well worth the price.  You can browse the different designs that are currently available here, or wait until 13th June for the limited edition designs for summer to be available!  However you better be quick in ordering as they will only be available until 9th August.

You can browse Katy’s products on Cheerfully Given or Etsy 

Note: I received a fabric bracelet at half price and am a brand rep for Katy Day Designs, but have expressed my own opinions in this post 

Bible Journaling Goodies from God at My House

Last year I bought myself a lovely new bible and started a “journey into bible journaling“.  I had never heard of it before then, but the idea of creating art as a response to God’s word thrilled me and I was intrigued.  I have dabbled over the last year, struggling to find time and not having the money to spend on supplies.  But the more I do it, the more I love it, and today I want to share with you a fantastic website with affordable materials to get your started doing some bible journaling.

parcel from God at my house

I was very excited to get in touch with Rachel from God at My House.  I had just sent some links to my hubby for some of her products for inspiration for my birthday (does anyone else do that?!) and thought I would ask if I could review some things and share with you, my readers.  Rachel happily agreed and I received this beautifully wrapped parcel a few days later.

Inside the lovely blue tissue paper were three special items.

I shall talk through each item and show you how I have used them in my bible journaling so far.

Bible journaling tabs

bible tabsAt only £2 for a pack of 14, these are a bargain and a definite must have!  There are two different styles on the website, colour pop and dreamy.  I got sent the dreamy ones which are in lovely pastel colours and patterns.  There are a few ways in which you can use these.  Some people like to tab all the books in their bible so they can find them easier.  Normally this is done will the tabs sticking out the side of the bible.  You can use these for this and write the book names on yourself, attaching the tabs with washi tape.

Alternatively you could use them to mark up special passages or pages where you have done artwork.  You might want to put the tabs along the top of your bible if you are doing this so you know it is different.  Again, just attached them to the top of the page using washi tape or glue.

Finally, you could use this in a scrapbook kind of way and stick on a page in your bible.  Be as creative as you want!  Here is what I did with mine:

bible tab in bible

Bible journaling cards

bible journaling cardsThese lovely little cards are printed on really good quality card stock and are another bargain at only £4 for 14 of them.  They are ideal for writing prayer requests of thoughts as you go through your bible.  Perhaps you are not in a really creative mood but you still want to mark a part of a passage, then you could put one of these cards in as a reminder for another day.  There are lots of different designs in the pack (no two are the same).

Here is an example of how you could use them:

card in bible

Pray more (worry less) journal

pray more worry less journalPerhaps the idea of drawing in your bible isn’t for you, but you still want to be creative in your time with God.  Then this journal would be ideal.  It is filled with blank white paper just ready for you to pour out your worship on to.  You could also use it as a prayer journal to document your prayer requests (and answers!)

These would make excellent gifts, perhaps for baptisms or other special occasions.  This is one of many designs that are only £5.50 on the website.  Why not treat yourself or a friend to a special gift.

Birthday on a budget – Mr Man themed ideas

birthday on a budget

If you missed part 1 of my “Birthday on a budget” series then read it here.  It contains all the principles that you need to plan a cheap but amazing party.  In this post I am going to be talking about the ideas I have put together for my eldest sons Mr Man themed party.

party bags

So every kids loves a party bag, and I love to give unique things to people too.  So instead of traditional party bags with rubbishy plastic toys in them that noone plays with, I have ordered every child a Mr Man book.  Now this sounds expensive doesn’t it?!  But by going via ebay I managed to get a job lot of 10 Mr Man books for only £4.  I am going to use some Mr Man party bags which cost about £2 for 8 via ebay.  Add a few maoam and a slice of cake and its sorted!

decorations

As we already have most of the Mr Man library collection, I thought I might use them to decorate the room rather than having to buy new costly decoration that will just get thrown out.  I am going to hang string from the corners and then put the Mr Man books over the string (much like people do with christmas cards in December).

birthday cake

I love to make my own, but sometimes buying everything to decorate it can cost just as much as buying one!  I am going simple again and make a Mr Bump cake.  It can be round (I already have round cake tins so thats easy!) and I only need two icing colours – blue and white.  Then I can use a black icing pen for the details.

party games

I am going to stick with some of the classics and just add a Mr Man theme to them.  For pass the parcel I bought some Mr Man stickers in the sale after christmas so those will be the prizes in the middle (not sure I will put sweets in all the layers because I’m stingy!!).  I am going to make my own “pin the nose on Mr Nosey” game with some old wall paper I have stashed away.  Who can resist the very cheap games of musical statues and musical chairs?  All you need for those is a bag of lollies or sweets for the winner to pick from.  Finally, I spotted this great Mr Man themed take on the bean game where you call out Mr Man characters and the kids have to walk round in a circle doing the related action.

Party food

I have already stocked up on pizzas (£1 each) and chips.  I am staying simple!  Kids love pizza and its easy to cook.  Pudding will most likely be birthday cake, although I may splash out and make something else the night before.

April Monthly Inspiration

monthly inspiration from rachel ridler mum on a mission

I have had such a busy start to the month of April and I am absolutely buzzing!!  I have spotted lots of fantastic links, articles, freebies and articles to inspire you so please enjoy……

  • Beauty and the Beast write up – there has been lots of stuff going round about the new Beauty and the Beast film, but this blog post was really powerful in summing it up to me.  Take a read.
  • Generosity when our kids are awake? – I love this article on the Stewardship website.  It really struck home to me that kids will copy our actions, so why should we do the important things like being generous when they are asleep?
  • Neighbourhood Prayer Network – ok so I am still struggling to register my street as it is a new estate, but I love the idea of every street in the UK being prayed for.  Have you registered yours?
  • Sewing with boys – Martha from Gidsy and Jo shares how she has been encouraging her boys to try sewing using pirates.  A great read and a free printable that you can use at home!
  • Creative Bea – If you are in to bible journaling then you will definitely want to check out this webshop.  It has some amazing stamps and stickers to use in your bible creatively.  There is even a free printable that you can cut out and use.
  • What would Disney princesses look as mothers? – have you ever pondered that question?!!  Well someone on the internet has and created this.  Just a bit of fun but I loved the picture of Belle breastfeeding!!
  • Message Bible Lock Screens – I love pretty phone lock screens (if you do too then check out the free ones in our Mummy Meditations Facebook group!) and I also love the Message version of the bible with its poetic phrases.  The Message have now released some free phone screen downloads inspired by their Canvas Bible.
  • UCB free journal – At the moment, if you sign up to the UCB free daily devotional you will also get a free prayer journal, which is pretty cool.

Mum on a Mission Reviews The Treasure Box People

mum on a mission reviews the treasure box peopleLast month I was sent an amazing gift for me and Sam to review – a TREASURE BOX!!!!  Please start off by watching my video about it, and I am going to share some more thoughts about the time me and Sam spent doing the activities below…..

Well what a month we have had.  In the midst of other things, we have kept coming back to our Treasure Box and Sam has definitely learnt lots about the story of the wise and foolish builder.  I love the way that with so many activities provided in this subscription box that I could stretch out that learning over a few nights.  On the first night we read the story book together (with duplo bricks next to us).  Then my mum taught Sam the song about wise man built his house upon the rock (a classic!) which got him even more excited.

book of wise and foolish builder

Story book included in the Treasure Box

The four related activities included in the box we reviewed:
  • Sand Cross
  • Rain stick
  • Family House keyring
  • Slate drawing
activity instruction booklets

Activity instruction booklets included in the treasure box

How did Sam get on?

I have to say that all of them were well thought out, and the homemade rain stick was genious!!  We did the rain stick first as Sam is obsessed with rice.  He loved the sound that it made, so then we read through the story book again together with him making the sound of the rain every time it was mentioned.  I had to help him a bit with the gluing but otherwise it was great activity for him.

Another night we made the sand cross.  This was a slightly harder for Sam as the peeling off sections was tricky.  An older child would have loved doing this themselves.  Sam loved choosing the colours and hanging his finished cross on our balcony door handle.  He made the connection really easily between the sand cross and the man who built on the sand, and we chatted through the story the entire time we were making it.

The last two activities were slightly harder for Sam as his drawing isn’t great, but he still had a go at making his keyring (my personal favourite as its so cute!) and slate. Here are Sam’s creations:

Sam's creations

My overall opinion

Out of all the things I get sent free to review, this has to be one of my favourites.  I could genuinely see the excitement on Sam’s face to do the activities, and the delight when he learnt a part of the story better.  It meant we had many more bible related conversations, and helped us as parents to teach him the principle of why we should build our lives upon Jesus, the solid rock.  I honestly don’t think that as a tired, sleep deprived, cranky parent I could come up with anything half as good as this.  Yes maybe I might have one day where I am super pumped and inspired, but probably not every month.  It is great value for money, and if you want to invest in your family’s bible knowledge together then I would highly recommend this.  It is delivered straight to your door with everything you could possibly need.

the details

So here is what you all want to know – what are the details on how much and how to get hold of them.  There are various option:treasure box people logo

  • 1 month will cost you £10 (thats nothing!  give it a try….) and you can set up a rolling subscription that you can cancel at any time.

captivated conference surrender

Captivated Conference – what I learnt and why you should totally go next year!

captivated conference surrender

You know God is going to move when you plan on not going somewhere and last minute end up going!  Well that was the Captivated conference for me. I had rationalised why I shouldn’t go (I was too busy, it would be too difficult to get there and cost too much) but then a good friend gave me one final prod and I caved.

what is captivated conference???

As a mum, we often think we the kids are solely our responsibility, that life will stop if we’re not there, that our husbands can’t cope without us for even a day.  Well you know what – THEY AREN’T, IT WON’T and THEY CAN!  Don’t we owe it to ourselves to recharge spiritually every once in a while?  To be able to actually spend time worshiping and being taught, instead of always having one eye on the kids.  I think we do.  I think that every mum should be able to have one day off (at least!) to spend a day with God and others in the same position as them.  We will be better mothers and wives for doing so.

That is what Captivated is.  It is a day conference especially for christian mums (their slogan is “Mums journeying with Jesus”), where we get teaching into our specific needs.  This year the fabulous Anne Calver was the speaker, and she was powerful!  The biggest thing I learnt from her was to stop putting things in the way of acting on what God has called us to do.  We can far too often say “I am only a mum, I am tired, I am not as good as them” but we forget that God called US to do it.  He didn’t call someone else, and he doesn’t ask us to do something that we are not gifted or equipped to do (or that he won’t equip us to do on the way!).

what did God challenge me on?

For me, the challenge was about a particular ministry I feel called to – using creative arts to reach i am not an artist, i just have a creative heartpeople, especially teenage girls.   I have always used the excuses of not enough time, too tired, being a mum gets in the way (I closed down my wedding stationery and craft business when I had Sam) and lately just that I’m not as talented as others in creative arts.  But God really challenged me on that this weekend.  Because my calling isn’t to be a Christian Artist with a beautiful etsy shop (there are others who are doing that amazingly well!) but it is to be a facilitator to help others discover their creativity and to connect with their creator through that.

The lady who I ended up sat next to on Saturday had also come on her own.  And as we were chatting in one of the breakout sessions, she said that she was getting excited when I was talking because she could feel the passion there for what I wanted to do.  I am now praying that my fears (of rejection, not enough money to do it and energy) are knocked over one by one and that I am able to move forward in my desire to run creative art workshops.

are you Interested?!

So if you came to Captivated, what did God do in you on Saturday?  I’d love to share in some of your hopes and dream and stand with you in those.  And for anyone who didn’t make it, would you like to join me next year?!  It is only one day, and for a conference it is very affordable (this year’s early bird tickets were around £17 – and that included doughnuts!!).  One day to invest in yourself as a mother and a child of God, whats not to love?

If you want to find out more about captivated, you can join their facebook group here or find more info on the website.
