This decision was so so difficult for us! We could hardly choose! Thank you for taking the time and share about your sweet love or family member! I really appreciate your intentionality!

After much rumination, Sam and I selected Kira & Brandon Bronaugh! Congratulations you two! I will be contacting you soon!  

Kira's entry:       

"Yay for chances to brag on Brandon! One way that Brandon consistently loves and cares for me is by always making time for me. Even if it's something he doesn't want to do or enjoy doing, even if he's really tired or has other things to get done.. Brandon always takes time to help, listen, or do some kind of act of service that blesses me. Whether it's doing the dishes, helping me with my icky physics homework, packing my lunch, or simply looking for a chance to see me throughout the day to give me a hello and a kiss. He is a man of quality time and acts of service! God has truly blessed me with this strong, gentle and patient man!"

The Celebration Continues | SBP Brand Launch

Hello again!

I am so overwhelmed with the amount of support and encouragement I received from you all yesterday! Wow! All of your kind words blew me away! Thank you Thank you Thank you! Yesterday just made me THAT much more excited for the rest of the week!  I am so giddy to show you guys the things we have in store! Eeek!

For the next three days I will be featuring some businesses that I think are just stinking cool, and offering giveaways from their products/work.

Today is a very special day and I am so incredible thrilled about it! Today, I get to introduce you guys to my amazing friend and graphic designer, Becky Murphy! She has been a delight to work with! I have felt so safe and covered by her because she always keeps her client's best interest in mind! As a fellow small business owner, she has taught me more than she knows about balancing work and life, while still managing to produce amazing art and service! I highly recommend her! And don't miss out on a very special giveaway from her at the end! 

Now for some words from Miss Becky...

My name is Becky Murphy and I'm a freelance illustrator, graphic designer and writer living in Austin, Texas. You can see my portfolio  here  and my blog  here .

"I was born and raised in Iowa, where I got my start as an avid doodler, positive thinker and pun-maker. After I graduated from Iowa State, I landed a job in Waco, where they paid me to doodle monsters on band shirts. It was a good move. Soon after, I wrote and illustrated a book called I'd Rather Be Short. It's 100 reasons why it's awesome to be small. You can get it here, here or here.

My company, Chipper Things, is a custom illustration and graphic design studio. Each project is as uniquely and thoughtfully crafted as the clients and ideas themselves. I see myself as an aid in a much bigger project—partnering with idea makers who truly make a difference. Chipper Things operates and collaborates with intention. I strive to be a creative and generous leader in my industry. Work finds its space around life, not the other way around."
