2020 Home Photo Challenge via Lillie-Put

This beautiful cross was gifted me from one very special Earth Angel. It was handmade by a homeless man she got to know and help. He has since found a place to reside as well as a way to earn an income through his gift.

Let every skillful craftsman among you come and make all that the LORD has commanded ~Exodus 35:10

2020 Home Photo Challenge 1-18-20

The last few years, its crazy saying years, but these last few years have brought about great change, growth and transformation in my life. I’ve been struggling with the direction I think my blog should go, so in a word, I’m lost.

I noticed over at Lillie-Put Joseph has started a photo challenge. This particular challenge is called The 2020 Home Photo Challenge. One photo, taken everyday, in or around your home. This is something I can get on board with! So here we go….

“That’s what winter is: an exercise in remembering how to still yourself then how to come pliantly back to life again.” ~Ali Smith~

Georgia ÓKeeffe

Last week I was treated to a special day with a special friend. Tess, my Chincoteague neighbor, who happens to live here in NC, treated me to a visit to the North Carolina Museum Of Art to view the Georgia ÓKeeffe exhibit. Our last visit was 11 months ago, so spending the day with her was good for my Soul.

My Soul-Sistar 💫

It was my first visit to an art museum…can’t wait to go back. I was drawn to Georgia’s work, and the quote hound in me was drawn to her words as well.

 

 

 

I was also drawn to the works of another artist on display .. and I’m soooo mad at myself as I deleted the photo with her info 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

What she did was travel around the US, and every 25 miles stopped and took a photo and then painted it.  Brilliant if you ask me!!! 

 

12 Nights Of Solstice .. Night 3

Welcome to Third Night of Solstice,

A time of traveling and following the heart path.
This is a time of connecting with your inner expression.
This is a time of finding your way between the veil,
and through the edges of time seeking assistance in the reflective surface.
Finding the gifts that will illuminate and guide you along your way to
celebrating the deep darkness and the return of the sun…
the Winter Solstice.

After My nightly soul-stroll and meditation, I found myself drawn to my paints….the gift…. a key 🗝

The Key….The Story Continues 

 

 

 

Creative Therapy 🎨 📝

A few weeks, I came across an ad for a paint class one of the local businesses in town is going to be hosting. Fluid Painting it was called. Intrigued, I headed on over to YouTube to see what I could discover about this medium. I quickly got hooked, and having much of what I needed to dabble on my own, this was my first attempt.

I decided to make another for my daughter for her birthday…and this was the end result for that one ….. I’ve decided to sign up and take the class. I’m finding this a wonderful outlet for my #arttherapy and want to learn all I can ‘live’. Im excited to be stepping out of my comfort zone and learning something new….

In the meantime….I’m also spending more time digging through the gray matter of my mind, putting more thoughts to paper as I ready myself for the writers workshop I’ll be attending in a few weeks………as I was looking through my FB memories this morning, I came across a quote I shared from a book I was reading 5 years ago…..funny that at that time, I was a few weeks shy of starting the first Sandbox Writing Challenge……I’ve come a long way since then…and I most definitely have come to love the wonder of Myself and who I’m growing to be.
