Frequently Asked Questions:
Where does the name Chasing Linen come from?
While reading through the New Testament, I was so touched by the story of the bleeding woman (mentioned in Mark & Luke.) If you don't know the story, there was a woman who suffered with blood issues for 12 years. She was an outcast in society because blood meant unclean and dirty so she had to keep to herself in her home. When she heard about Jesus, who was known to work miracles, she ran out to touch his garment and in that moment, she was instantly healed. I love that story because the woman was faithful in pursuing her higher calling and believed that she would be healed. That's what Linen represents: restoration, dreams, purity, Jesus.
How did you start Chasing Linen?
I wanted to raise funds to go on a mission trip to Alaska in the summer of 2013 so I created a watercolor calendar to sell to friends. I only made a few thinking that I wouldn't sell very many but it ended up being a hit and I was able to cover my trip and another friend's! From there, I began receiving more requests and orders of things that I didn't have (like wedding invites and birthday cards.) I was honestly just shocked that people liked my work enough to pay for it. It definitely had a humble start and grew into something much bigger than I imagined. 2 years since then, I was able to quit my day jobs to pursue Chasing Linen full-time (read more about the journey here.) I am so incredibly grateful that I get to wake up and do what I love :)
