the good part

it has been one year since the conception of face to face framing..and alot has changed.
we moved from making frames in our garage to a small space in brunswick,ga. and then in september to a larger space with a warehouse and studio combined.
the experience has taught us first hand the definition of faith,trust,and hope...in our God and then in each other.
in this changing time it seems we are all gathering the grace to carry on the way things were and at the same time reach for hope in the change we see coming. we hold onto the past as we step into the future. unknown.
we at face to face framing are trying to get ready for new market. to bring you places from the past to store your hopes. objects that when you see and touch them you feel the strenght of time combined with your hope in a memory stored.
God is at the center of our business, our motivation and inspiration. He has allowed us the success to do something we love. and for this we give Him all the Glory.
as this year comes to a close we encourage you to reflect on the past-structure your present- hold simple things...like littlehands, a new baby, feel warm sun, drink sweet tea,and taste honeysuckles, enjoy a long sunday lunch,...there IS no joy...in anything unless we share it.
grow,reach, be strong,give, help,and love.

intentional thoughts...just to name a few

Pretty is as pretty does..
i spy
amazing love
you are my sunshine
this little light of mine
count your blessings
how does your garden grow
gifts of the sea
kiss the girls and made them cry
if these walls could talk
these are the days we will remember forever..
Jesus loves me
they are precious in his sight
then sings my soul..
channel of blessings
you make everything glorious
a small key opens big doors
all because two people fell in love..
blessed be
people see God all the time_they just don't always recognize him
I'm sayin!
there is a story here...
the sweetest days
i was blessed with humble beginnings
The love of family is life's greatest blessing
ready or not...here i come
ring around the roses
be still
slow down
its a wonderful life
God's stage
tide of life
island eyes
colorful cast
God is large and in charge
simple living
voice of truth
architectual salvage
pattern of living
sustainable influence
can't take my eyes off of you

nothing vague about this!!!

When we were praying for the perfect home for us- our prayer was for God to provide us with a place to hang our cross and call home. And as I brought a few home from the studio I never imagined that it would come together as it did. It is impossible for this picture to capture the wood varieties and colors and how they pull off of everything in the room. We have about a 16ft. ceiling in one room in which this collection literally HOLDS the wall...the crosses are anchored above a hutch. They catch your eye from many view points in the house..and from where I stand it is a beautiful reminder of what holds true.
* if you click on the cross-you can get closer to the detail of this particular collection!
