Welcome creative sisters! My name is Kimberly [not Kim] and I am currently living my best life. I’d like to start by sharing that I am in God’s will and I fully believe I’ve discovered His true purpose for my life.
My entire life I’ve always felt like I was running from something. At a young age I ran away from home. I ran away from bad influences. I ran away from heartbreak and eventually grief. My philosophy was to run away from anything that didn’t contribute to my “happiness.” And once I accepted Jesus, I ran from the things I deemed “bad.”
Right after attending my very first local Bible journaling class [in 2017], I could hear God’s voice, clear and concise. He said stop! And though I hemmed and hawed about it, I stopped. The Lord then showed me, for the first time in my life, that I had something to run TO.
Bible journaling is a perfect fit with my life, with who I am and with the gifts He has blessed me with. It wasn’t until I turned 46 years old that I stopped running away from everything and finally started running toward something. That something was God’s will.
So here I am writing a blog about finding creative ways to learn, grow, and glorify our almighty Father. All the beauty in the world comes from the Lord and it is HIS PALETTE of colors I want to embrace and use in my own relationship with Him.
For the last four years, this About Me page has basically remained unchanged. However, as I grow and learn from this incredible community, I also desire authenticity, sincerity, and honesty. With that in mind, if you are interested in learning about the real me, the me that falls down often, check out Me, Myself & Lies: Introducing The Real Kimberly’s Ugly Truth.
His Palette Print Shop: How We Do It
As a Christian business owner, I think it’s important to be completely transparent. Some of you may already be aware that products are generally made by an array of people. The His Palette Print Shop is no different. Our shop is filled with art from both me (Kimberly) and others. The images I use when designing our kits are acquired one of three ways.
- It’s 100% my original artwork.
- I curate art from other artists. The artists I work with are compensated for their time and talent, and I always acquire any needed licenses for resale.
- I work closely together with other artists to collaborate on a specific project, using a mixture of my original work and theirs.
Regardless of where the images are derived from, all printables are designed by me. How does that work?
- I gather a collection of images (either original or licensed or both).
- I create and add wordfetti, titles, tabs, banners, Bible verses, etc.
- I pull everything together to create said printable.
I would never want it to appear I am taking credit for anything that is not mine. When someone reaches out to me, I think it’s important to let them know exactly what they are purchasing. I’ve decided to also include a document within our Facebook group that explains how images are acquired, so there is no confusion. Just like any other business, I am not the only person contributing to our line of printables.
