Free Desktop Wallpaper Download

I am always on the hunt for cute desktop backgrounds and iPhone lock screens. It is a bigger bonus if they are encouraging, or inspirational. I spend a lot of time at my computer or with my phone, and I'm sure the same is true for some of you! So, I took one our most popular prints and made it into a desktop background or iPhone lock screen. 

I'm hoping to bring you new free desktop and iPhone backgrounds every month (we will see what happens)! Up first is 'You are so Loved'. I know this is an easy truth to forget. So pop this background on your computer or phone as a constant reminder that you are so loved! I know I need to be reminded of this on occasion and thought there might be others in need of this reminder as well. Download instructions for each background are below.

Why You Should Check Out Our New Spring Designs

The new spring designs over in the Machelle Kolbo Design Studio Etsy Shop are a collection I am very excited about. I approached this collection knowing that I wanted a core group of products that were intentionally designed and created to complement the other items available. Read on to find out why I felt like this was important. 

One of the things I realized after one year of business was that I had gotten a little scattered in what I had available. I love all of what I created last year, but if I'm being real I don't know if it was all cohesive or a representation of the heart behind my business. I still love it all and believe in the quality of those designs. 

As I thought through my new designs I knew I wanted them to be intentional. My designs needed to encompass some elements of faith, as well as elements that would encourage and love customers. This also means I wanted to design items that would assist customers in loving and encouraging those around them.

What came out of that intentional design process is a collection of art prints, cards and journals that I am very proud of. It is my strong desire that these products in some small way can be an encouragement to you all. I love that I get the opportunity to enter your home and life through paper goods, design and lettering. 

Check out the photos below for a sampling of our new spring designs available over on Etsy! Don't forget if you are local and would like to arrange to pick up your items you can use the code LNKNE2016 at checkout to remove shipping costs.

Photography: Kel and Mel

As I shared earlier this week I had the pleasure this year of working with the photographers from Kel and Mel. In addition to the extraordinary video they created for me they also took some beautiful photos. 

I am so excited to be able to use these beautiful photos throughout my website, Facebook, Etsy Shop and Instagram. They tell the story of my business beautifully, and even Piper (our golden retriever) makes an appearance. 

I am so thankful and blessed by the gift that Kel and Mel have to share with the world! Be sure to check out their website , facebook and instagram

Kelly and Melonie - thank you for believing in me, and helping me to believe in myself more! 


Welcome Friends!

I'm bursting with excitement and anxiousness as I write this post. Welcome to my blog, website and business!


I'm not sure when this dream began - but it has been forming for quite some time. You see I'm much more of a realist and frequently talk myself down from big ideas/dreams/risks and unfortunately avoid taking the leap - anyone else? Despite this my small seed of a dream has grown to become a reality - through a lot of encouragement, love, and confidence boosts.

So, welcome and thank you for coming along on this journey with me! 

I plan to use this blog to showcase recent design projects, peeks behind the scenes, thoughts and tips on design, and products and updates on my etsy shop (Now Open!)

Above all else my prayer is that this blog and my business will bring glory to God. Thanks again for stopping by - I hope you are as excited as I am for what is ahead!
