Rainy Day Projects

Last week we had a couple of days of drizzle and J decided not to start any outside projects. I got out my paints and imagination. It did my soul good to work on some creative ideas. I did two mixed media pieces; one for my Aunt and one for J’s Aunt. I also worked on a sign to give Sister as a birthday gift.

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. ~Rumi

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be. Discover your wonderful self. Feel the energy you create. Find your purpose. ~Lilly Calandrello at Wisdom Bits Blog

“Our humanity comes to its fullest bloom in giving. We become beautiful people when we give whatever we can give: a smile, a handshake, a kiss, an embrace, a word of love, a present, a part of our life…all of our life.” ~Henri J.M. Nouwen

    I LOVE that little bird! I’m working on a rag doll for the granddaughter for her birthday.

    Cute! My mother-in-law was a very craftsy-creative person. I still enjoy decorating with her holiday pieces, though she’s been gone 18 years. My creative outlets are writing, photography, music and baking, I guess. I am always doing those, but not craft projects.

    Me too.
