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

The makings of a “studio”

Cliplight/Sue Carroll

Even though many of my art supplies are still in a storage area, I have begun to set up “shop.”  God has wired this creative brain of mine to crave the “creative process.”  In it, I feel connected to Him, using the gifts He has established in me to mimic His creative nature.  I am thankful that my husband is so patient with me…supporting my need for a space to work and dream and play. He is the one who found my work table. I have been looking this past year for something I had pictured in my head and heart…thanks honey, for not only finding the perfect table, but for so generously paying a little extra to make my “dream” a reality.

The light I started with came from Pottery Barn and I am including a photo below.  Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s available anymore, but I would imagine that someone “handy” could create this shape using rings of some sort from the hardware store along with a light kit.  Don’t you think?
