Cup Overflowing

This morning I met with my women’s small group, where we’re in the middle of studying the story of Gideon in the Bible. I can relate to Gideon so much. He had a faith in God, but still needed assurance when God called him to do something that was beyond his own strength. And instead […]

Top 5 Lessons Learned from my First Creative Personal Project

Last week I completed my first creative personal project 100 Days of Pillows, where for 100 weekdays I committed to making a new design that could be printed on a throw pillow. It was one of the most difficult and satisfying projects I’ve completed in my art journey. I learned so much from it, things […]

100 Days of Pillows (84-90)

After my mini-meltdown 😉 at the end of Day 83, the past week and a half was hands-down my favorite of all during this project. Every pattern felt intentional, my final color choices sure (even if I struggled to get there), and I really enjoyed sitting down to draw each one. A modern tree pattern. […]

100 Days of Pillows (63-69)

Warmer still. The good news is that it didn’t take until Day 75 to get comfortable again, as I predicted. It seemed to happen right after my last blog post with Day 63! Creativity really does need exercise much like a muscle. If you flex it, it grows bigger. Ignore it, even for a short […]

100 Days of Pillows (56-62)

Getting warmer. I looked back at my first 50 pillow designs and realized it took about 25 designs before things started to feel really comfortable. So if history repeats itself, given my little break at Day 50, Days 75-76 should be hopping! But, hopefully it won’t take as long this time. 😉 This ocean themed […]

100 Days of Pillows (42-48)

After the Thanksgiving break I started up again with Christmas designs. It’s funny, working with holiday motifs isn’t something I can force myself to do (I’ve tried). But when the mood hits, it stays awhile. Whimsical reindeer silhouettes using the same pink in the poinsettia pattern from Day 40. The tiny houses from Day 31, […]

100 Days of Pillows (37-41)

Another week of the pillow project is complete (yes!). It feels good to be approaching the midpoint. This week had more “what am I going to draw” moments that lasted longer than I liked, but my commitment to drawing something by the end of each day hasn’t wavered. The first design was inspired by a […]

Friendship

This morning I met a friend over coffee and a cinnamon roll. We’ve known each other for years, first having met by being in the same “community group” within our church. She is someone I can be real with. Someone with whom I can share my successes and struggles and ask tough questions and receive […]
