Today we partner up with Willow of Wonder!  
I am SO EXCITED to share these beautiful prints with you!!

As I'm sure you all know I'm in love with anything that has scripture on it!  I stumbled across Willow of Wonder through Etsy and fell in love with her work!  The first print that caught my eye was the Romans 12:10 print below.  It reminded me so much of my daughter, Natalie

Deer Girl - Scripture Art Print  - Children's wall art - girl's room art - nursery decor

I contacted Jackie and asked her if she would be interested in partnering together for Yay Free Friday ---and she said YES!!  I was so thrilled!  I know all of you fall in {love} with her beautiful creations!  I've asked Jackie to give a bit of a testimony which I included below.  I was so blessed to learn more about her family and business!

Willow of Wonder was born out of a love for art, creating, and encouraging others in their walk with the Lord. Most

of all, it's a way for me to worship. I love having reminders to focus on scripture and really wanted them for my
children's rooms too. I like bringing to life scenes of freedom, joy, and strength in my art. To remind of God's promises.I want our children to know that they are precious in His sight, they are given a spirit of power and not fear.
I want them to be reminded daily that He will guide and protect them, and they are His mighty warriors. 
 
Most of my products are scripture art prints. They are 8x10 or 7x9 on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of heavyweight archival fine art velvet paper using archival inks. All come packaged with a stiff mailer to prevent bending.  I also have cars, gift tags and stickers. I'm working on completing stationery sets and bookplates in the near future. I always have a few drawings in progress. Right now I'm in the midst of making a bow and arrow girl and boy as well as a sailor boy and girl honoring their captain.

I am inspired by everything from my children, and of course scripture, but also music, books, and even the light streaming through the leaves of a tree.  My only wish is that I had more time to get the ideas from my head out onto paper. But I know my family comes first.
 
I'm a new (this year) homeschooling mom to my two girls ages 5 and 8. My oldest daughter struggles with dyslexia so I knew it was the only answer right now for her to learn in a calm environment that
could move at her pace. I prayed long and hard about having her younger sister home too. It has turned out to be the best decision for their friendship and for our learning days to be filled with games and fun together. My son who is almost 11 is in the fifth grade at a small private Christian school.

My husband and I met at CNN almost 20 years ago and have been married for 16 years. In my former life I was a reporter and producer covering everything from high profile political cases to movie premieres and social justice issues. I had a heart for wanting to help the underdog and to tell their story. But becoming a mom over ten years ago changed my heart and brought me home. I knew if I kept the same pace, a nanny would be raising my kids and I didn't want that.  Now, my life is full with our school commute, keeping my family fed, trying to garden and care for our new chickens and puppy, homeschooling by day, and homework help by night.  Of course mixed in with all the obligations are lots of play and opportunities to celebrate the every day. I know these days will be gone in a blink so I try to rest in knowing I'm right where God wants me. What keeps me sane is getting up before my kids for my quiet time. Doing a bootcamp class led by another homeschool mom twice a week and sneaking in moments to create whenever I can.

I LOVE them all but especially The Breastplate of Righteousness. Hope I win. If not, I'll be placing an order!

Olivia Flanagan said...

Oh man, I can't decide between the supergirl one, the dolphin girl, the set apart ballerina, warrior girl, or how delightful is your love! Miss indecisive here! Supergirl reminds me of my daughter with her daddy, he is a super hero/comic book nut and is always calling her his lil super girl. I love the ocean and the Psalms and singing so I love the dolphin one and would probably put it in our under the sea themed bathroom. The ballerina one has such a great message and imagery to represent it, plus I'm almost positive I'm going to HAVE to put my daughter in ballet once she's out of diapers because she LOVES to dance and twirl around like a ballerina any time she sees one on tv. The warrior girl again reminds me my daughter and her daddy, that is one of his favorite passages as he is a warrior both of this world and for God's Kingdom (he is a disabled army vet) and has already taught her to play sword fight so she's his little warrior girl. Finally, the how delightful is your love reminds me of my husband and I, him being blonde and I brown-haired, and the wedding we never got to have, but our marriage is full of love growing ever more delightful through God's grace, which is far more important than getting a wedding. I love them all! Great find,Tina! Great God-centered art, Jackie! Thank you for sharing!
