2008 Review in Photos

with one comment

I really have no clue where to begin.
2008 brought so many ups and downs that just the thought of going through and rehashing all of it freaks me out.
Regardless, 2008 was amazing for many reasons, and one in particular.

Thankful fors in 2008 in no particular order:
(clicking each photo will enable you to leave a comment and to enlarge a specific photo)

There are many more photo’s I could place up there; blog party, etc. However I have limited space and time.
Perhaps if I feel it, I’ll do a 2008 in Review part II.
I will say this, Twitpic made this a whole lot easier.

I truly never will forget 2008.
Each memory will be tattooed on mind and heart forever.
From the moment of 01/01/08, to the moment of all the tears I cried, to the moment I first laid my lips on Allison’s, to the moments soon awaiting me in the next few days.
2008 will be a defining moment of my life to come.

I could truly never be more blessed.

Here’s to 2009!

Christmas Cards….Interpression Style

with 4 comments

So I have been thinking about a way that I can get the word out on Interpression Ministries a little more.
I started thinking about maybe handing out flyers, but decided I didn’t want to do that
However, that though is what spawned the idea of this:
Interpression Ministries Christmas Cards(in the form of a post card)

Designing it took a long time.
I changed it probably 100+ times.
Not kidding.
I wanted to make sure the postcards included the vision of Interpression.
It was also important that people could feel the sense of love upon receiving the card
Not to mention I just wanted the card to look good.

What do you look for in a Christmas Card to consider it “good”?

Okay, so I spent some days offline.
I’m back now. Preparing to send some responses to emails I received in regards of the graphic design artist search and preparing my replies to some great comments left below on THIS post.
It’s not too late to jump in the mix.

Anyhow, tell me.
What did I miss while I was gone.

Hey readers, I need someone who can design a logo for a HUGE project I’m working on.
I don’t have tons of money to offer for the logo, but I can offer some.
If you know anyone, or if you are that person, let me know.
I can fill you in on the details upon contact.

Send me an email with any information/suggestions you have:

Production Team Name/Shirt(s)

with one comment

Okay readers, you get first glimpse and first chance for suggestions on something I’ve been working on.
You get to see these even before Ryan does.

Let me explain…
Recently in a post I asked for suggestions on a name for dialogue’s production team.
Not many of you chimed in, but for those of you who did, thanks!
Anyhow, today in our Monday morning meeting we discussed a way to get the kids of dialogue church more active and taking more ownership in the ministry.
The credit for this idea goes to Kim, our chidrens ministry director.

By allowing them to really take an ownership and have a ministry they can call their own will be huge. The photo is just something quick I pulled together. The shirt should probably be adjusted more for the younger generation.
It’s just an idea.

Anyhow, I also designed one for the adult team.

[click on the thumbnails for a close-up of the image]

There they are.
Our production team shirts.
Some of the ideas were taken from other church’s and the design of their production staff shirts.
Let me know what you think, and also any suggestions you might have.
This is anywhere from a finished product(e.g. the color is the wrong color of green).

What’s your opinion? Lay it on me, I can take the truth!
