Hello Inspired Women~
I have missed this blog! I have been working for months on our new website, which is up and just beautiful. Thank you to Keith James (all the way in Indiana) whose patience, skill and graciousness created a clean, beautiful, easy to use website. There will be an official email from new site as soon as I have learned the process!
Grand Prize Winners are here! The Grand prize was $1,000. in cash and our new product line which will be comprized of these works. We have a greeting card line as part of the new products, so if you want Christmas Cards that will be spectacular, keep us in mind! The money will go to keep Inspired running, created by our fabulous teenagers! *Scroll to the end to hear more about our Product Line.
Here are the Grand Prize Winners:
1, 2 & 4 are by Erin O'Brien, age 19

5 Hannah Baldoz, age 14

I am so excited to be sharing with you the beginnings of our Product Line. We hope our ministry will run entirely supported by our product line, within the next year. One reason I am so excited about this is because I love design. This can include so many amazing talents and utilizing our teens talents to teach/mentor them not only on the basics but the nuances that can get quite complicated regarding the business of design and art. The desire to create combined with the necessity to be financially viable is something each artist ultimately struggles with at one time or another.
If our girls have the desire to use their art, I would like to come along side them and help! This is a big part of Inspired's foundations. You can see our site Inspired31.org it's new and gorgeous.
We have a jewelry line in North Carolina that we will design some pieces with, and they will sell it in their retail store, along with Inspired Design and perhaps many of our other pieces.
We are also working on our next book, whose working title is "Fully Present", and will have some exciting elements from girls and Inspired31!
After four years of Inspired31, and about 6 since we began the book project for Inspired Design, I have learned that those that get the most benefit from something are those that dive in! We'd love to have input and if your girls would like to get involved, email me. The girls that are involved in the product line are very excited about all the possibilities to make art and make a difference!
We're so excited about this new part! Let me know if you'd like to help or contribute in some way.
Blessings and love to you and yours,
Please join with me in saying a prayer for those in Oklahoma, as well: Proverbs 31: 8,9
