The Gift of Gratitude: Creativity

Today celebrates Day 21 of my 31 Days of Gratitude: Creativity

I love to create!  As a child, if I could not be in the woods looking for critters, I would be in my room creating.  I am still that creative soul.  There is something magical and therapeutic about creating.  All of my worries just vanish and become trapped inside thick layers of paint.    Painting is not my only “go to” form of creativity.  Honestly, I enjoy any form of artistic expression.  When an idea pops into my little head, I can’t help but make it a reality!  Our laundry room was one of my favorite creative projects…

There was a blank wall above the sink that needed something.  But knowing it could end up wet, I had trouble coming up with an idea.  Then it hit me…why not create a mural!  Then the magic happened…

I designed the mural, on the card table, and then placed each piece, one at a time…
