Holiday Gift Guide: Sharifa Creates Art

playtime sm (1)

With Christmas being less than a month away, now is the best time to purchase gifts for friends and family. Typical presents include pajamas, savvy electronics, and gift cards. But, have you ever considered giving artwork as a gift? 

I have an art business named Sharifa Creates Art. I started it three years ago to sell my original abstract paintings. Over time I’ve come to realize that visual art is more than just something pretty to look at, it can have a positive or negative spiritual impact. I create my paintings with the intention of sharing joy, encouragement, and the good news of Jesus Christ! All of my paintings are created in a worship environment. Before they leave my hands, they are prayed over and anointed for the purpose they will have in your life. 

This year buy a Christmas present from Sharifa Creates Art! Gift a canvas painting to the art collector in your life or use an art magnet to stuff a stocking. Your loved one will have a one-of-a-kind painting that no one else owns. Artwork from Sharifa Creates Art is the perfect fit for any space – from office cubicles to gallery art walls.

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” – Galatians 6:9, NKJV

Today is the official start of pumpkin spice- caramel apple- sweater- scarf- and boots- season. It’s the first day of autumn! In the past, I defined autumn by its marketable attributes. Only in recent years have I come to appreciate the fullness of autumn. The temperature is pleasant, the sunsets are more beautiful, and the air seems to be fresher. Most importantly, autumn is harvest season!

Here’s what I found when I looked up the definition of autumn:

“The third season of the year, when crops and fruits are gathered and leaves fall, in the northern hemisphere from September to November and in the southern hemisphere from March to May.” Continue reading “It’s Harvest Season | DIY Autumn Decor”

How To Make A Jewelry Box

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” 

Matthew 5:14-16

God has placed treasures in each of us – unique physical and spiritual gifts. With these gifts, we have been called to glorify His name and draw people to Christ. Often we stifle our gifts because of fear. We fear failure, the opinions of people, and even God’s ability to transform our hearts.

We should not fear using our gifts for God’s Kingdom. God is with us! We are protected by His grace to do anything He’s called us to do. Walking in our purpose is the most fulfilling thing we can do. Continue reading “How To Make A Jewelry Box”
