Throughout my short time blogging, so many people have asked me, “When do you ever sleep?” The answer is simple--I don’t sleep much...I usually get to sleep around 3 or 4am. That’s because I create art all night long.
Let me tell you a story. I bought a book the other day. It looked like a fantastic little piece of fiction and I had really wanted to start reading it but, I didn’t have the time. That’s because I was up all night and working all day creating 4 journals. I just popped them into my Etsy shop and thought that at $5.99 they were something really affordable if someone needed a gift for Christmas for someone they love.
Then, when I got them posted I finally began to read the book. In the first 3 pages, the author talked about a Quaker tradition of keeping “Gratitude” journals! If you have ever wondered if God has spoken to you, I can assure you that I felt that He was speaking to me! After all, I had just finished making the journals--and each one is dear to my heart. (The side pieces on them are a deep hunter green and appear very "old world," but they photographed brighter.)
Isn’t it a fantastic idea to keep a gratitude journal? I loved the tradition and thought I’d pass the concept on to you~and in case you’re wondering what the book is called, it is Debbie Macomber’s “One Simple Act.” It’s precious! It is one of those, "Oh my gosh--why didn't I see this sooner?" kind of books--If you don't have it, believe me, you'll want to own it...it's amazing!
Also, Monday is the start of my Creative Spirit Challenge if you'd like to link something up--It can be an older post--it doesn't have to be new! I just do these for fun and if you know me very well you'll know that I think blogging and getting to know people is all about fun and friendship!
