Because My Walls Can't Take it Anymore

Mountains Mug Top

I love beautiful art. I love Emily Wierenga.

It seemed natural to find ways to bring Emily's beautiful art into my home, without finding more wall space (which I do not have, at all).

This is the result...

The Emily Collection


My girls each got a journal for Valentine's Day. "I can put my designs in this!" Sonia exclaimed. Sara kept turning hers in the light, "I love the colors. So brilliant."

(I forgot to choose "lined paper" when I ordered, so these are probably destined to be art and poetry journals!)

Hollyhocks Journal

Hope Blooms Journal

Me? I got a beautiful bag for the myriads of library books I carry each week. I was pleased that the bag turned out to be heavy in construction. And I get to carry Emily with me (instead of some of the less-than-attractive bags I've inherited from conferences)...

Hope Blooms Bag

Best of all, I am drinking my favorites now with Emily. When I showed this to Sara, she said, "Amazing. Just amazing. It's so beautiful!" And I like the way the cup shines...

I wonder who said that art has to be on the walls. I'm happy to be holding mine (Emily's) now.


How about you? Check out The Emily Collection

Certainly not just for walls. If she were here in this room with me, I'd ask her to create something on the back of my hand.

Now that is clever. How about an Emily vehicle shrink wrap?

That is wonderful. I think sharing art with children is so great.

I've been to the TS store via Emily's site, but I have to say that your images here, in real life photographs, make the products more appealing.

Way more better. (that last bit sounded like a 1st grader, but hey, it's the truth!)

And each time we hold or see or read another person's art, it's always a grand time to hold them close in prayer.

It is good to get art into the hands of people, to allow them to touch it. And then to be touched.

Like cupping hands together and scooping up some of Emily's spirit. Refreshing and good.
