Have you seen this amazing iPhone case in my @society6 shop?! I just got mine! It's amazing!! We also got rainbow Jesus tote bags and tshirts. It's so fulfilling to see my artwork printed on such high quality, hip products! I'm getting throw pillows next!

"For the past year, I’ve been taking a break from business. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I would ever return. What started as a passionate endeavor to run a business of out love for photography, turned into an obsession that negatively dictated how I viewed the world, and myself. So after four years of chasing my identity in money, popularity, and success in business, I quit so I could find it in Jesus. I was burnt out, bitter and frustrated. I needed to heal. So I shut down Glitter & Graphite Studios, and trusted God that everything was going to be okay. This was the best thing I could have ever done, because when I gave up on trying to be perfect on my own, I learned that perfection isn't dependent on my abilities, because it is already given through grace in Jesus. Discovering this truth has made me ready to work again. But first, I want to come clean." Link in profile.
