Hi! My name is Adam Little. I first got into woodworking in November of 2010 by making a nativity scene for my house. It received a good bit of interest and I ended up making quite a few in the following weeks. My primary job is a residential home designer. I absolutely love what I do, but at that time, business was too slow to maintain it as a full time career. My wife and I began praying for God show us what he wanted me to do. I enjoyed making the nativity scenes so much that I decided to pursue making them to sell. There was one small problem. People loved them, but naturally wanted to wait to order until the following November. I started thinking about what I could make that wasn’t seasonal.
All along, my wife and I knew that whatever I did, we wanted it to bring God glory. I ended up deciding on making a cross. I wanted it to be set apart from the others I had seen while looking through various styles. I wanted it to be something that could not only hang on someone’s front door, but that could be the centerpiece of a family’s living room.
I now needed a name for the company. I asked around for some ideas. You wouldn’t believe how many terrible derivatives there are when you try to work my last name into a company name. I received suggestions (no offense to you who tried to help. you tried…) such as “Adam’s Little Woodworkings” “Little Creations” and other “Little” this and that. I get enough grief as it is for the amount of Hobby Lobby trips I make and my phenomenal decoupaging skills (Google it. Not many guys to be found). For years I have had an email address that began with “mihiadam.” It was taken from Genesis 1:27. A bit of a play on words…my name is Adam…Adam was the first created man…man created in God’s image…you get the idea. Made In His Image. Anyways, I finally asked a friend, who happens to be a marketing genius, and he said “Dude, use Mihi Designs.” It had never crossed my mind. It was perfect! It has been a great way to share Christ with people as well as a constant reminder of who I am doing this for.
Long story short (somewhat), God has blessed both my home designing as well as Mihi Designs. Psalm 37:4.
Thanks for reading! I’d love to know your thoughts as I post some of my work!
