First, the Shop! is back up and running. Praise Jesus! Now back to business…

I can’t even begin to count the amount of emails I’ve received over the past year asking me to create a canvas with the lyrics to the old hymn Come Thou Fount. You guys LOVE it! And so do I. I grew up hearing this song in church, and fell back in love with it when my friend Jes sang it at Steve & Cait’s wedding. It’s such a beautiful song, and there is something so familiar and yet still so fresh about it.

For those of you who haven’t heard this song, I enlisted the vocal stylings of my handsome hubby and my lovely sister-in-law Breeze (when Breeze isn’t serenading us, she is also keeping track of all your orders at the shop!). So here is a little Come Thou Fount for you. In my Mother-in-law’s living room, after decorating the tree. I did not edit this video, so be patient – a song is coming, I promise.

Beautiful, no? (Seriously, that’s like the 3rd time they’d sung that song… ever). There are so many parts of this song worth illustrating, so there could very possibly be more canvases to come, but for now I figured I’d just start here.

I am really happy with the way it turned out – all swoopy and relaxed, but still pretty. I hope you guys love it as much as I loved creating it. It would be an amazing Christmas gift to yourself or someone you love. The canvases are large, 24 x 30 inch pieces. They’re gallery wrapped and really create a nice presence in the room – a true piece of art. Click here to check it out! (Oh, it’s also available as a print, too!) xo, L

p.s. so thrilled to have this piece featured on The Nesting Place today!

Hey everyone! Just a quick note to say that if you’ve tried to go to today and it’s not letting you, or you’re getting an error message, it’s not just you or your computer. It seems some things in the domain set up weren’t communicating correctly between servers and other stuff I don’t understand. Anyway, I fixed it but now it could take up to 48 hours for the world wide web to remember that my little shop exists. (Gah! You’d think for something so speedy, this would be a much faster process). So anyway, thank you for visiting and please sit tight! It should be up and running any time now. By the weekend at the latest! Just to say thanks for your patience, once the site is up, enter code WHOOPS at checkout for $5 off any order of $20 more until Monday. peace, love, and fingers crossed!, L

It’s official!: After TONS of hard work (including the awesome work of Margot Harrington & Zak Hardage, the two most patient, optimistic, accommodating and creative people I could have asked for to design & develop my site) THE LINDSAY LETTERS SHOP IS OPEN!!!! I would LOVE it if you would stop by and check it out. I hope you enjoy everything as much as I have enjoyed creating it! (I’ll be continuing to add things to the Shop so subscribe to the mailing list if you’d like to get updates! Next on the agenda? More canvases–just in time for weekend-after-Thanksgiving decorating! Happy weekend!) xo, L

October 15 is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. As I was thinking about today, and this month, my heart grieves for all my friends that have experienced the magnitude of such a deep and painful loss. A loss I can’t even comprehend. My heart is with all the women and families that are remembering today… this month… always. I am so, so deeply sorry.

During my post-abortion counseling, I came across the Abort73 website, and it’s become a ministry that’s close to my heart. The idea is simply to generate awareness, and I’m all about that. I recently illustrated this t-shirt for them, and wanted to share it with you. Feel free to pull the graphic off my blog or check out the t-shirt here.

Design Explanation (from
The requirements of Micah 6:8 are especially pertinent to abortion. To act justly, we must work to protect the innocent human beings who are being aborted all around us. To love mercy, we must extend kindness and compassion to those who have aborted. And to walk humbly, we must remember that each of us has failed to live up to this standard in a thousand different ways.

I’m not trying to make a huge political or spiritual statement here, trust me. Here’s hoping that justice, love, and mercy are things that we can all hope for.

Thank you, Jesus, for second and third and millionth chances, and thank you for the promise of Heaven.
love, lindsay

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been ONE MONTH since I last checked in! Crazy, how time flies! I will tell you, it’s been quite a month. Things are happening, people! Here are just some little big things that happened this month: Eva Love is now 10 months old. Holy cow. She’s amazing. She is so so so funny and full of life and I could stare at her and make her belly laugh all day. LOVE. // We launched my husband Dugan’s website: DUGANSHERBONDY.COM. Seriously, I couldn’t be more proud. He’s amazing and I can’t wait to see what God does with his site and his talent. // I finished up about 30 (THIRTY!!!!) products to add to my new shop. Most of them are holiday stationery items and some new art prints and canvases, plus a new stamp design and more to come. I am BEYOND THRILLED to share everything with you!!! It’s work I’m super proud of and I hope you love it as much as I do. (Get ready for some gilded goodness!). // My friend Heather is moving her print shop (after like, 50 years!) to a new location, and that’s where our new studio will be. My pieces were some of the last things run at the old location, and now everything is all packed up for the move! // Last week I got together with my amazing friend Laura of Lark Photography and she did the new product photography for the shop. Gosh, she’s good. // And just today, my good friend Mike installed some shelving at the new studio! Peach wall, check. Industrial shelves, check. Heaps of pretty paper to stack on the shelves, check check check…

SO with that, just a few more updates:
1. I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the O Holy Night canvas. Yep!–it’s still for sale and you can purchase it here: O Holy Night Canvas
2. There will be customizable holiday cards, stationery, and stamps in my new online shop, but other than that, I’m not going to be taking any completely custom work, envelope addressing, or non-editorial hand lettering inquiries until after the holidays. I hate to say no, but I know that I can’t give you the full attention you deserve while I’m trying to launch the shop. Thanks so much for your understanding and check back in the new year!
3. The Lindsay Letters Shop will be officially live by the time you finish Trick-or-Treating (or Harvest Festivaling… Or boycotting… or whatever it is that you do). SO, will actually be the virtual home for the new shop, and my blog will be relocating to So for those of you writing me worried that you will miss the shop opening, don’t be! If you keep checking back here, you won’t miss it! (Some product sneak peeks to come!)

Take care, and happy Friday! xo, l
