It’s not Friday, but I’ve never introduced myself! So here’s an introduction Tuesday with 5 facts about me and my little shop ❤️😂 .
1. Radiant Design Co is a one woman shop, and I stain and hand paint every sign in my shop with no stencils or computer fonts! (And I always take customs) everything I do is handmade with love!! .
2. I’m currently a junior at Olivet Nazarene University, and I study Business and Marketing!
3. My shop is about 8.5 months old and I absolutely love what I do... I’m itching to add a bunch of new stuff to my shop coming up soon!! (Comment below if there’s anything you want to see 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼) .
4. I am a collector of mugs.. books... movies... blankets... (okay maybe the right term is “hoarder”) 5. I absolutely love my life, the people in it, and the One who created it all!! ❤️❤️ thanks for reading!!

I love this teaser shot of @srhshlmn’s half moon quilt. Swipe for more! She made this based on the Zen Chic half moon pattern but altered/perfected it for a twin-size. Quilted croc eyes by @sparklesaxdesigns (such a great idea!!).

I think a lot of people might notice the difference between me The Blogger and me IRL.
In real life I’m very shy and introverted, I have social anxiety and struggle making friends. With depression and a chronic illness (I’ll be posting about that on the blog soon, keep an eye out) I spend a lot of the time in bed, feeling hopeless or in pain, in my own mind. It’s why writing is such a good career path for me, because I’m always able to write even when I can’t do anything else.
And on Instagram, and on The Gal Pals, it’s almost like I’m a different person. I feel confident because I can show the good parts of myself and take control of the bad parts. I focus on positivity and love because it makes me feel better. I’m able to make connections with people without it taking all of my energy.
I love blogging, and I love social media, because on days like today when I haven’t left the room because of the pain I’m in, I’m able to find a photo from when I was genuinely happy and share that happiness with the world. As shallow as it might sound, that helps and gives me a little bit of hope and strength and determination to keep fighting.

We love #smallbusiness for a variety of reasons -- including:⠀
⠀
🌇 Its community impact. Shopping local puts more back in your community and contributes to local culture, vs. shopping at chain stores.⠀
💻 It drives job creation⠀
🌲 Local can be better for the environment⠀
🙌A large percentage of small businesses make giving back a priority⠀
⭐️ It's an investment in something that's different and breaks the mold⠀
⠀

Will travel for mushrooms. Cup in hand, knife in pocket.
Oysters, chanterelles, and candy caps were the order of the day, and what a delight to be in the woods!
Sven harvesting oysters from a stump, and our 12oz mug in Classic White ☺️ Having the cup (besides for tea!) ensures that I'm never well and truly skunked because the photos are always worth it, even if no mushrooms are to be found.

Excited to finally share the project I did for Auckland Hospital! Last year I was commissioned to decorate 14 rooms with wall decals including two custom decals. It was such a fun project to work on and I’m so proud to be able to share it with you now 😊

My 4 day holiday was almost a no show cos I wasnt sure I would finish this order for return gifts I had committed to before my flight out. So you can imagine just how much more fun the holiday started out, when I was able to hand over these adorable (ahem-'macho') wallets for a 7 year old boys birthday party, as return gifts!
So after about 8 prototypes,20 mistakes and a zillion swears - The Little Man Wallets have been added to my collection of products for the kids! (yay).
