Here is day one of #gr8fullcre8ives is ” beginnings ” , got the start of this page now to add to and finish it . @creativitytribe @juliejordanscott #artjournal #artjournaling #southcarolina
Day 2 Spark: Surroundings
Well this was easy! Day 2 of the (#Gr8FullCre8ives) Grateful Creatives Challenge is the word “Surroundings”. I am forever grateful to my husband for all the love and caring he brings to my world, my surroundings, my spirituality. Especially the last seven years in which my health was and is, his top priority. My gratitude is over the top. He encourages me to use creativity as a tool to my better health. He understands the relationship better than I do! The sponsors of this challenge are @juliejordanscott and @creativitytribe

Day 3 Spark: Body
Day 3: Body #Gr8fullCre8ives I’m grateful for this vessel. Our bodies are matched for our spirits. I offer my gratitude to my body because it allows me to work and live the life I’ve always wanted to live. I push it hard and sometimes I’m too hard on it. Today I’m grateful that body speaks and whispers to me how to better serve myself. I listen to the joy it feels after hard work. I am reminded to listen. #gratitude #latepost
Day 4 Spark: Mind
Day 5 Spark: Heart
Day 6 Spark: Traditions
Missed a few days of #gr8fullcre8ives but this one covers 2 days! It is my DS he is my #heart and my inspiration. He believes in me even when I don’t believe it’s possible. It is also our #tradition to go to @wafflehouseofficial for all celebrations and birthdays. I don’t know when it started but 20 years later we still do it.
Day 7 Spark: Creative Spirit
Day 9 Spark: Creative Interest
Day 11 Spark: Simple Pleasures
My last entry for #gr8fullcre8ives today. The theme of simple pleasures came from my archives visually AND within a day or so there will be a blah post. Now – I love visiting the library, not even to check books out but to be with books and allow books to surprise me. See the Margaret Atwood book in the right corner? I went home and ordered it from Amazon! How long have you paid a visit to your local library? Yes, I brought the book page flowers and the vase from home. 🙂 Another simple pleasure.
Day 12 Spark: Smile
Day 13 Spark: Movement
Day 13: Movement Laundry day. Reminds me that life must press on. “I don’t see my own thoughts for what they are. See I’m no Queen I wear no crown. But desperate times they seem over now. But still i weaken somehow and it tears me apart. But i hope to learn as time goes by, that i should trust what’s deep inside. Burning bright o’ burning bright – my sensible heart, my sensible eyes.” *City & Colour #Gr8fullCre8ives
Day 14 Spark: Something Small
I’ve missed some days with the #gr8fullcre8ives , so here’s a combination post! #somethingsmall are these Loteria ornaments I made yesterday from the original #somethingbig paintings I did of them in May. I put these small prints in used match-box “frames” painted with acrylics. It was a #simplepleasure. Now that I am back in #motion – walking and driving – after recovering from broken ankle, I want to choose deliberate and creative activity rather than over-loading my days. (And I’m grateful for the memories of learning my first Spanish words playing Loteria in elementary school many years ago.) . . #loteria #ornaments #upcycle #creativity #day15 #takeiteasy #folkartisfun #gratitude
