two posts ago was my 200th post! woo-hoo! missed it. sad face. oh, well. maybe i'll catch the next big anniversary and do a giveaway, or something equally exciting. that would be fun, wouldn't it?
so, recently i signed up to join a group of bloggers who are going through 'the crafter's devotional' which is sort of map or workbook or inspirational book directed toward crafters.
i just got it yesterday in the mail and dove right in. i'm so excited! it looks really good. i'll be journaling some of my experiences here, and then we're encouraged to keep a written journal of our journals and trials. i started that yesterday. that part seems pretty personal, so i'll just be sharing some of it. yesterday we kind of talked about artistic dna. how we are the only one of us that will ever be, and how if we don't express ourselves, our art will be lost. i explored how i think pretty much all of us are artists, just expressing it in different ways. some are mothers, others work in the business world creatively, some cook, others dance. it's all art. God himself is an artist; i can tell because of how creative he is with this world. he really loves artists! so embrace the fact that you, too, are an artist. and your creations are one of a kind. make art! it's also just a beautiful book. hardcover, with gorgeous art throughout. yay, books!
two days ago i signed up for the lovely erin prais-hintz new challenge; the challenge of travel. i'm totally excited! i love erin's challenges and this looks like a good one. go sign up! it's still open.
