Blogger Design: Grace Upon Grace


I am so privileged to call Suzanne a best friend. What a joy to carry other sisters in Christ close to your heart for accountability, prayer and laughter. She is a gifted Girl's Minister in the Atlanta area, and recently asked for help with a new site design.  I love the verse she chose from John, which lead to her blog's title, Grace Upon Grace. A quick look at her mood board: I'm loving the fresh mix of mint, mustard and navy, grounded in burlap, and accented with chevron patterns and mason jars.  It's the perfect mix of Southern roots and modern style.
