Shelf Life 2

This weekend, we were part of USC Roski School of Fine Arts and Visions and Voices' Shelf Life 2, an event featuring an influential group of independent publishers, artists, writers, and designers.

I was there with Katherine from Woot Factory and AIGA USC
Katherine's felted hearts! <3
Always nice to visit campus :)
My raffle ticket. I didn't win, but it was awesome hearing Chip Kidd's talk and reconnecting with my previous design instructors, other alumni and students. I definitely was inspired by the event...and now I'm even more excited to make more things! :)

The grass is greener...

"The grass is greener where you water it." - Neil Barringham

I like this twist on the common phrase, "The grass is greener on the other side." That statement is often true, but it's even more true that the harder you try, the better your circumstance! Originally found the quote here.

Little Seed at Passions for the Nations Conference

Little Seed was invited last weekend to exhibit at Passions for the Nations, a missions conference that seeks to raise up Asian American Christians for the global advancement of God's kingdom.

It was a raining all day, but thankfully we stayed dry!
Digged out an old Mancala board to display the buttons :)
The booth next to Little Seed's were our friends from INHERITANCE
We also made new friends, including Bread + Fish Foundation, a non-profit architectural organization that seeks to glorify God by designing and building spaces for Christ.
Re:new the Response partners with churches to challenge middle school and high school aged teens to renew their faith in Jesus Christ and to provide a venue for them to use their gifts to the full extent of their purpose in Christ.
Re:new also featured Little Seed's ad in their magazine!
Added Rocco to Re:new's doodle board :)
Thank you everyone for your kind comments, questions, feedback and encouragement during the conference! Hope you guys were blessed as much as I was! :)

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 
He makes me lie down in green pastures, 
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul. 
He guides me along the right paths 
for his name’s sake. 
Even though I walk 
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil, 
for you are with me; 
your rod and your staff, 
they comfort me. 

You prepare a table before me 
in the presence of my enemies. 
You anoint my head with oil; 
 my cup overflows. 
Surely your goodness and love will follow me 
all the days of my life, 
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. 

Psalm 23:1-6
