Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Art Journal Swap:)

I am participating in a Journal Swap with a group of talented artists.  It is so cool to receive someone else’s journal in the mail and then  have the opportunity to “add to” what they’ve already started.

(We each chose a “theme” word for our Journal)

As we create pages in each book we receive, we then send them on to the next person.

When we are through, we will each have a beautiful journal filled with art from our new journalling friends who have given us a unique perspective…a “fresh” look at the theme of our heart:)

I chose the word GRATEFUL.  I have learned that in our praise back to God we find His presence.  If we focus on the many blessings in our lives, the things we used to see as obstacles become opportunities…

God changes not what we see, but HOW we see it:)

Here is the first “spread.”

  • How beautiful! And how fun and inspiring. It would be like taking a mini class from each woman. I am sure you will enjoy it. I have been praying for Mina and her mommy. I am sure that you were the touch of one of God’s angels to them. Art can be such a blessing when we give it to others with love. Hope you have a great week.

  • Nicole:) I Love hearing from you! Thank you for your “touch.” I so relate to your heart:) …and, I truly love your style! And yes, about the journal swap…it’s so wonderful to share what you love with others, always something to learn!! Hope you have a great week also!
