New Blog and Publication Call!

By Theresa Calderini on April 25th, 2012 »

Welcome to Parables of a Crafter!! Each and every one of us has a talent or ability that we are really good at and that can be used for the glory of God. Remember “The Parable of the Talents” (Matthew 25:14-28)? Three servants were given five talents, two talents and one talent respectively.

The Parable of the Talents tells us that the first two men used their talents and gained double what they had begun with. The third servant however, buried it in the ground which made his master was very displeased with him. The master referred to him as wicked and lazy, both of these terms don’t demonstrate praise for doing well do they?

But we learn from this parable!

God has placed in us each different talent and abilities that he desires us to put to good use. We aren’t to hide these talents and bury them in the sand as the third servant did but instead we should desire to use our talents and abilities in glorifying God.

So here’s your chance to use your talents! “Parables of a Crafter “will be putting up inspirational photo’s each week and we want to see your creations that come from them!

There will be a total of 52 Publication Calls for you to participate in and you can submit as many card creations as you want! Our team of judges will select those who will move on to the final round of judging and from there, one card creation from each week will be selected and will be included in our book publication planned to go public near the end of 2012!! Details on this new and exciting venture will be coming to you very soon!

Please visit our “52 Parables Publication Guidelines” page for the submission guidelines. Be sure to sign up for email updates or to follow us so that you know what all the publication calls are. All Publication Calls will be done as “Anything Goes” as our primary goal is to receive card creations that come from the inspiration you receive from the photograph provided for each call.

Be sure to stop by our “Meet the Photographer” page to learn about the man behind these extraordinary photographs!

Are you ready? Here are the first two inspiration photographs for you to work with! Be sure to read the “52 Parables Publication Guidelines” page for details on how to submit your creations.


The deadline for these first two publication challenges is Saturday, June 9, 2012.

We look forward to seeing your work and we welcome you to “Parables of a Crafter!!
