1) Do you do custom orders?
Yes, there’s usually an extra fee above what prints are priced in our Etsy shop, but we LOVE custom orders!
2) How do you choose which organizations/ministries/silent auctions to donate prints to?
Up to this point, I’ve been able to donate something to each organization/ministry that has contacted me. Of course, I always do my research to make sure the request is legitimate, but I mean, c’mon, if someone is requesting scripture artwork, there must be a good reason, right?
3) Why do you have so many adoption prints in your shop?
Well that is a great question – adoption is very near and dear to my heart. I have 7 adopted nieces and nephews (so far…more to come!) and I cannot imagine my life without each and every one of them. They are all amazing, as are their families who brought them home. While adoption doesn’t seem like a good fit for our family at this time, I jump at every opportunity I get to support anything related to adoption because my small “gift” will be multiplied exponentially when it goes to help bring children home where they will experience the love of Christ first-hand in their families & church families.
4) Where do you get your ideas for prints from?
People ask me this all the time. And what I tell them is that God has wired my brain in such an odd way…when I read scripture, I instantly get a visual in my head of what artwork with that verse could look like. I know it sounds strange, believe me! The trick is finding the time to translate what’s in my head into my design programs. My husband often laughs at my stack of sticky notes with scripture references on them that he finds all over the house (and even in the car). It’s not uncommon for me to wake up suddenly from a deep sleep with an idea for a print…which I promptly run downstairs to my office and begin working on in the middle of the night. Like I said, I’m a bit strange.
5) What’s your long-term vision for Red Letter Ink?
Another great question – honestly, I would absolutely love to see Red Letter Ink grow to something big. Not for myself financially, but rather as a means to reach more people with the gospel. Each sale I make I get all giddy thinking about how I can use that money to support another ministry or help another family who is adopting! Or how I can bless a needy family with a gift card for groceries. God has blessed me with SO MUCH, more than I ever would have imagined or dreamed of. Now it’s my turn to use what He’s given me to bless others in whatever way I can – big or small.
