Pink Paislee - You

When I had my son and we made the decision for me to stay home, I really didn't know how hard the journey would be. Not because I didn't want to stay at home. But, I had no idea that I was created to create. Does that make sense? Maybe for other artists it does... there is something that drives artists to always be busy making art.

 
I didn't scrapbook for months. It could have been a couple of years. I can't remember. [Not creating for a few days for me is torture.] My twin has always encouraged me to keep at it, including then. I am so thankful that she encouraged me to start art up again.

So, this week has been a difficult. I have started the bible study called, Jennifer Rothchild's Me, Myself, and Lies. Jennifer Rothchild teaches how to train your mind to think positively, not giving into the lies you may have been told or are telling yourself. Some lies that I have been fighting this week have been, "You are not good enough." "Why you?" "Who do you think you are?" "You are nobody of importance."


Then I saw this line, Indigo Bleu from Pink Paislee. Ha! Who would have thought a paper line would speak to my heart? I guess paper can speak to paper artists. ;) "Free-spirit" and "Free bird" are some of the quotes in the stamps and shipping tags.

Craft Warehouse was first to describe my art as "free-spirited" and I think it defines me. It for sure explains how I scrap. It also describes how my brain and heart work when I am not crafting. My mind doesn't stop with the ideas that sometimes I need to keep a sketch book out on my night stand so I can jot the ideas down so I can rest and sleep.


Maybe it is hard to explain, but it is me. It is who I was created to be. I keep telling myself, "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10

He created me. In advance He laid this path for me. So, I will do the best for Him with all the opportunities He gives me.

Create Well: Be yourself. Be YOU.
