After 6.5 years I officially have a Bachelor’s Degree in graphic design from Indiana Wesleyan University! I don’t think I’ll believe it’s true until next month when I don’t have to go back to class :) Last Saturday friends and family celebrated the end of this journey in my life and the beginning of the next. God has sustained me through this long and interesting journey, and kept me in school while my heart was often not. Thank you to all who encouraged me to keep at it, especially towards the end.

During the years I went to school part-time, I was able to start a business and the Lord has been faithful through my diligence. I’m very blessed to have had work the literal day I graduated…and in the field I studied. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

My very dear friend Shelby and her mom came from out of state to surprise me!

Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum

Over the summer A, K,…wait, I’m going to start using real names. Starting over…Over the summer Anneke, Katherine, little Esther, and I took a field trip to the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in order to step back in time. Tucked away in quaint Two Rivers, Wisconsin is the coolest print shop (at least that I’ve ever been to). With a fascination for type and everything old and traditional, the trip was overwelhmingly awesome. It’s such a shame I hadn’t bought my camera yet :/ So my cell phone was my only option. Lord willing, after I graduate, I’ll take a trip back to Two Rivers and intern at the museum. We’ll see :)

And here are some noteworthy words as of late:

“Ease and luxury…do not make for maturity;
hardship and struggle however do…”
J.I. Packer

“The Truth is, God is far more interested in our holiness than in our immediate, temporal happiness…The Truth is, it is impossible to be holy apart from suffering…We say we want to be like Jesus, and then we resist the very instrument God chooses to fulfill that desire.”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss Lies Women Believe

an introduction

To be honest, I’m not sure where to start! After all the praying and planning and then finally designing this blog, it’s here and I’m actually doing this! So here I go.

Hello, my name is Hannah and I am a designer, a passionate health foodie, and young woman who wants to serve Jesus Christ in all that she does.

This blog is fairly simple. I love raw and whole foods, I love photographing food, and I love design. So I decided I would start food styling. Please comment or email me at, I would love to hear from you!

Coming tomorrow: porridge.
