Creative Endeavors


Oswald Chambers stated "When God sends His inspiration, it comes to us with such miraculous power that we are able to "arise from the dead" and do the impossible. The remarkable thing about spiritual initiative is that the life and power comes after we "get up and get going". God does not give us overcoming life-He gives us life as we overcome".

I truly believe in his philosophy. For quite sometime, my crafting had been somewhat on "hiatus". Primarily due to a major life changing decision, that proved to be a colossal mistake.

The last 5 years, has been a rebuilding of our lives. And in the last 5 months, I have dealt with two forms of depression, and came through, reignited and ready to give "life" a chance to shine again.

There is a beauty that is rising, skills of art restored and more,  as  that restoration stated in Isaiah 61:2-3;
....to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve, to bestow upon them  a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor".

My seasons of sorrow have gone, my seasons of mourning's has passed, I emerged a new creation, ready to explore, new creative endeavors.

My latest creative endeavors, a 12x12 scrapbook layout and an oversized tag.

Thanks for stopping by!

Be blessed in all you do!
