this summer i joined a little group led by elisabeth auld that is individually going through the crafter's devotional.
i ordered it from amazon. it's a beautiful book, with art throughout. very inspiring! loosely organized by day and each day of the week there's a different focus, like journaling or inspiration. i've dived right into the journaling (i'm a writer at heart) but haven't done any of the projects! so sad. i've just been too busy making jewelry for farmer's market and work, work, work. i expect i'll get more into it as summer ends.
i wanted to talk about one of the inspiration posts. it was about looking to your church service as a source of inspiration for your art. i had never thought of this. i'm a very visual person, so i'm inspired mostly by the beauty of the world around me. i live in alaska, so that's not hard to find. and the beads speak to me. i'm not as inspired to make jewelry by words. the spoken word is hard for me to grasp for very long. i generally connect the words with a feeling, and remember that feeling rather than the words. and i feel a lot in church! so i could try to be inspired by the *feelings* i get in church. hmmm. must ponder this more. see where it takes me.
