Stacey inspired me (as is so often the case) to capture my home in some sort of art medium for my writer’s notebook. Since for my 30th birthday my husband gave me my dream gift — check it out here — I had to use it for this challenge. To bump up the artistic side of it, I used Adobe Photoshop. Below is my art & my writer’s notebook entry. I love Stacey’s idea to use the art work & writing as the basis to a mini-gallery for our classrooms. If you do too, now is the time to create & write (before the whirlwind of the new school year begins). Then post your work & share the link with us!
This is the place I love. The place I am safe to be myself. The place where I’m living my dreams. It is here that I can be a momma, a wife, a friend, a cook, an artist, a writer, a reader, a teacher and a pepsi drinker. And it is all okay.
I am blessd to have this kind of place in my life. Not everyone does, even though they should. It is a place where everything is all okay. As much as I love going out into the world — for church or work or errands or vacation — I love coming home even more. It is here that I rejuvenate and grow. Without here, I wouldn’t be who I am out there.
Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
