This blog was really started as a branch off from my first blog, which is a paper crafting blog. Sometimes I rambled on when I was suppose to be just posting artwork. Eventually some folks came just for the rambling while others only wanted to view the paper crafts, so I started a second blog, just for rambling
2012 was a year of highest highs and lowest lows for our family, and lotsa, lotsa activity and change so I spent very little time in my craft room and even less time on the blog. Lately I have been craving that creative time and thinking about the reason why.
Scripture says that we are created in the image of God. And God is THE CREATOR. So I suspect, that because we are in His image, each of us has a bent towards creativity. What’s yours? If I had my druther I would create beautiful jewelry like this woman does: Bits and Pieces Artwork (I have neither the patience nor the eyesight) or music (don’t even get me started on THAT) or take stunning photographs, but mostly the only things I manage to make (besides lots of kids lol) are cards and scrapbooks and calendars. I particularly like card making because it’s quick, easy and cards can be used to encourage or thank the amazing people in my life.
How about you? What brings you a sense of joy and satisfaction to create? Poems? pottery? Painting? Drawing? Photography? Creating baked goods or gourmet meals? Cards? Jewelry? Music? Theater? Sewing? For some of you it’s probably all of the above! I’d love to hear about YOUR creativity. Perhaps you have link to your own work that you’d be willing to share?
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27 NAS
Matthew 5:16 says Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. That should be the motivation behind all we do!
Here’s today’s first creation, made in between loads of laundry and a creating a pot of southwestern chicken soup I hope to spend a few more hours in the craft room before attending a high school play with the HH.
Have a great weekend and take some time to be creative!
Grateful for this wonderful life,
