Breathing has been my main focus. Then one day not to long ago, instead of staring at my art craft room. I stepped in. Opened boxes and drawers. Cleaned my workspace. Lighted a candle. Tiny swirls of creative mess happening.
Just like that I started to heal. I am not the same person I was 8 months ago. Sadness still prevails-will that every go away? Realizing that in the worst, I found out how strong I could be. That reaching out and relying on friends and family is okay.
Here is Lucky doing her best to photo bomb
my picture of that Christmas sign
I made from recycled pallet wood.
I have been working to fill my Etsy for the Holiday season. But not to rush the season, I decided to decorate a bit for Fall. I admit I was surprised to keep going to the sunflower yellow/mustard color but with the sparing few cents I had, I updated my farmhouse frame from last year with this new color combo, vintage music paper and bit of burlap/straw.
Added a new plant and some white pumpkins to my entryway, reviving my already owned items.
Then with our new 'tude', I splurged and bought this 'Jump in the Lake' original frame with a B&W photo from little one's first day of First Grade in August.
Its nowhere near over but as each day unfolds for our new life, routines, schedules, and moments develop for a new family album now in the process of being filled.
Closing with my first jump back in the creative bits, a tiny journal that I bought from my friend Cerri, that I painted and embellished with a handmade flower. Beautiful. That we are all beautiful. A reminder that he can not take away my faith and hope, that beauty- caring, and kindness will endure and be stronger than that evil that he has within.
Till next time, Kris
