Screen Your Thoughts

Ever wonder what people would think if they could hear all of the conversations that take place in your mind?  Well, if you’ve purchased a Kharismatic Kreations shirt you’ve worn a few of my thoughts. 

I’m a proud introvert with extrovert tendencies.  Some people may categorize introverts as shy with little or nothing to say – which is completely false.  The introvert personality type is very observant, imaginative and creative.  “Introverts process everything in their surroundings and pay attention to all the sensory details in the environment, not just the people.  This means that introverts have an active dialogue with themselves and usually walk around with many thoughts in their minds.” ~ Liz Fossilien and Mollie West.  Many of my design ideas are thoughts that dance around in my mind day and night, anytime, anyplace.  Often times they are based off of conversations, feelings and experiences that I have had.  Sometimes it’s a song that I may sing in the shower that sparks a shirt design idea, or current events in pop culture may inspire a design.  I’m going to walk you through the backstory of a couple of Kharismatic Kreations’ popular product designs.

Many of my designs are positive and inspirational which is consistent with our definition of Kharisma, a personal attractiveness that enables you to inspire others.  

Jesus Gives Me Life!
If you are a fan of the Braxtons or the WeTV show “Braxton Family Values,” I’m sure you’ve heard Tamar Braxton say, “Get Your Life!”  Or, you may have heard one of your girls say something like, “Those shoes are giving me life!”  Giving me life defined by Urban Dictionary (so you know it’s real) is anything you got excited or pumped about; anything that makes you laugh emphatically.  I put my own spin on the popular phrase to come up with Jesus Gives Me Life!  
  1. It’s a biblical fact that Jesus came to gives us life and give it abundantly, John 10:10.  
  2. I get excited and pumped about Jesus, so yes, He is giving me life!

T-shirt and Jeans Type of Girl
I was having a conversation with one of my childhood friends talking about the #mompreneur time management struggle and the need for her personal stylist to assess my clothing inventory so I could get my sexy back, lol.  I was explaining how I don’t have time to shop for comfortable and chic clothes that I can jump into on the go.  I remember saying to her, “I’m a t-shirt and jeans type of girl.”  And that’s how this simplistic design was thought of.  

iPray therefore iSlay
Okay ladies now let’s get in formation!  I’m pretty sure that you’ve heard Beyonce’s song, or should I say political movement, “Formation,” which was the inspiration behind this shirt.  The only difference is the formation that I’m referencing in this design is on your knees in prayer.  "I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.” Matthew 18:19.  So I’ll say it again….Okay ladies now let’s get in formation!  I pray therefore I slay self-doubt, poverty, fear, sickness…etc. 

Fueled by Faith
Purchasing, overhauling and launching the Kharismatic Karavan Mobile Boutique was a faith walk that inspired this shirt design.  Read more about the journey in our last post.  But after the launch and by the grace of God, Kharismatic business picked up and with lack of sleep and a few missed meals because I didn’t have time to sit and eat, I was/am literally fueled by faith.  In my mind I would ask, "How am I going to get all of this done?  How is it all working out?"  But 2 Corinthians 5:7 says “For we walk by faith and not by sight.”  This design is a declaration.  

All of these designs plus more can be found on the Kharismatic Karavan Mobile Boutique.  Different varieties are available at every stop.  Text #KharismaInMotion to 31966 to access our calendar.  Kharismatic Kreations, LLC offers design assistance for custom orders free of charge up to 3 proofs in our all-inclusive pricing.
