Commit to Creating

The past few weeks I have been thinking about painting, stamping, cutting, Mod Podging and sorting. I love doing all of these things. They bring me peace. I love losing myself in creating.

There are times throughout my day when it feels like too much.
Times when I'm being pulled in 5 different directions. I am rushing from school, 
to practice, to appointments then back home then
back to school. to church, to the gym, etc.
It's during those crazy, hectic times when I think of my Art Journal, my big bin of paints and colored pencils that puts a smile on my face and a calm in my heart.

I hope you'll join me THIS Tuesday for the 31 Days Creativity Challenge. Click here to find out more. Oh, and be sure and grab a button for your blog and while you're at could you share this on your FB page and maybe even your blog with a link? The more the merrier!!:)

“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.” — Edward de Bono
