an introduction to ME

I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife and a stay at home-homeschooling mother of four beautiful children.{Who you might see on here occasionally} But most importantly I am a child of God, created for his glory. A creation of art with purpose.{need daily reminding of this fact!!!}

Webster's describes art as ": an activity whose purpose is making things that are beautiful to look at, listen to, or read.

Needless to say, I am still a piece of art in the making! Daily being conformed into the image of Christ. I will not be perfected until I am in Heaven with my Saviour. But that doesn't stop me from trying to be more Christ like. �It's the same with my art, some days I am always feeling like I have too much to learn and will never produce some of the awesome things I see out there. And other time I can be really surprised with the results. �But I enjoy the challenge and the push to learn more and grow in my knowledge. Which brings me to why I am here. �I do not profess to be " all that and a bag of chips" as quoted from a good and dear friend. Yet i have a desire to share with others the art that I create. Even if I don't know all there is to know yet. �Art is for fun, and one never knows how it will turn out int he end. It can be spontaneous, planned, but always beautiful to look at. It can put a smile on a down cast face, bringing some much needed cheer. It can tell a story that should never be forgotten. Left there to be seen again, and again by someone who needs that little reminder of just how important they are to you. �

This is why I scrapbook and handmake special cards for the ones I love so dearly. It is one of many ways I can let them know how special and valuable they are to me. And when I am no longer here, I will have left these things behind to remind them of that fact.

FOR: " Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall enherit the scrapbooks."

May you be blessed.

Without God there is no art. It sounds like you focus on His love and Goodness and give Him the praise and glory for your art.
