Yesterday was an exciting day for Letter Me Loved. Not only was it Valentine’s Day with heart-shaped pizzas and chocolate-covered strawberries, but we also launched a new line of prints and greeting cards!
If you look through the prints, you may notice a little bit of theme. When we started this business eight months ago, it was really scary. Signing those business forms, writing that first check or hitting “go” on our online shop – it was a mini heart-attack every time. There was just so many unknowns involved: Will people actually like our calendars? Do we have what it takes? Will we have the time?
In a lot of ways we are still asking those questions. Where is this going? Can we still make great products? Can we be innovative and creative? It’s all a little terrifying.
But the week we launched Letter Me Loved, we posted a picture on Instagram of the print above (minus the beautiful watercolor by Sarah) with the caption:
“If you’re loved by someone you’re never rejected. Decide what to be and go be it.” – The Avett Brothers
Our pastor quoted these lyrics on Sunday during his sermon on faith and work, and we immediately related. Our path wasn’t obvious, but we decided we wanted to be makers and set out to be just that. It was a lot of work, but here we are! And we know that no matter what happens next, we are loved and never rejected by Jesus – and that’s all that matters!
The path still isn’t obvious, but we weren’t created to live in fear. In fact, we are loved perfectly by the Creator of the Universe, and perfect love casts out fear.
So ladies and gentlemen, let’s be fearless!
Here’s a little bit of encouragement to remind you!
We also printed our first three calendar designs:
And two beautiful greeting cards (ask us about custom stationery!):
