Today I would like for y'all to meet Carly from Little Light Prints. The first time I came across Carly's work it was from this print she created, and I fell in love. Carly and I have connected through email and social media and we found out we not only share art in common but both our little boys have heart defects. It's good to be able to connect with another mama with things like this.

1. When did you first begin creating art?
In 2010, I was a new mom and felt like a needed a hobby. It's safe to say, out of desperation of needing something that was my own, Little Light Prints was started. When I first opened the shop, I was purchasing other people's digital art to use in my designs. It wasn't until early 2011 that I became comfortable with the program I was using and started to create designs that were completely my own.

2. What is your favorite/most sentimental creation you have made? Why?
My favorite design is a very simple one but one I'm very attached to and that is the Proverbs 31:25, which I call the Daisy Print.
|Proverbs 31.25 by Little Light Prints|
Daisy Love Merrick (www.prayfordaisy.com) is an 8 year old beauty who is battling cancer for the 3rd time in 3 years. Her and her family are very dear to our church body. The print was created as my way of contributing to the massive $500,000 her family needed to raise in order to receive experimental treatment in Israel (a goal that has been met & profits are no longer going to her trust). To me, Daisy is the face of that verse. I feel like it was written thousands of years ago with her in mind and I get teary every time I see it.

3. Is there a project you've always dreamed of creating?
What would it be?
There are so many projects I'd love to do and I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm terrified of venturing out and expanding my product line. I really just want to see my designs in people's homes. It makes all the time I spend on this shop totally worth it.
