About Us


Owner, illustrator and fellow mama, Essie Griffin, began creating her silhouettes during a time of financial struggle within her family. Back in 2012, she wanted to create a silhouette of her son and her husband taught her how to do it. He encouraged her to try selling them online since computer illustrated silhouettes were pretty unique back then.  And as they say, the rest is history!  As a stay at home mom to two littles, it has been a blessing to create this timeless art for so many families, all the while getting to do it from home. 

Based on the East Coast outside of Philadelphia, all silhouettes are proudly (and thoughtfully) illustrated, printed and packaged in the USA.

Our Features

Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.
C. S. Lewis
Work is a blessing. God has so arranged the world that work is necessary, and He gives us hands and strength to do it. The enjoyment of leisure would be nothing if we had only leisure. It is the joy of work well done that enables us to enjoy rest, just as it is the experiences of hunger and thirst that make food and drink such pleasures.
Elisabeth Elliot
The process of shaping the child, shapes also the mother herself. Reverence for her sacred burden calls her to all that is pure and good, that she may teach primarily by her own humble, daily example.
Elisabeth Elliot
