Good Morning Dear Friends and welcome to my world of imagining. This little spot is where I enjoy sharing the joy of creating with you! Wouldn’t you agree that creating comes in all types of styles, techniques, passions and venues? Creating is one of the ultimate forms of self expression and more times than not, imagination is the catalyst for the very best of creations. So get ready to imagine, dream, create and go!
Imagination is such a precious gift which must be nurtured and tended to just like this hydrangea and tomatoes from my gardens. The more I imagine and dream the more things I create.
You might just remember this quote from one of my favorite people.
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use the more you have.” Maya Angelou
I have also discovered that by stepping back from myself for moments throughout the day and breathing deeply, gives me time to imagine and dream while replenishing my soul. This is when I feel all of that gurgling imagination rise to the top of my same old boring thoughts and ignite a new way of thinking. I invite you to do the same, in this hurry, scurry world it’s a good thing to do.
So here is some fun news to share with you. A few months back, Jen from Rural magazine reached out to me about the possibility of being a contributor for the Spring Issues of Rural. Well my heart truly skipped a beat! Rural is a perfect fit for my style of writing and viewpoints on life.
Oh and with the theme for the Spring issue being replenish…. I had just the article in mind.
( I hope you’ll read it and the other amazing articles too.)
Speaking of replenish, it’s Spring Friends! I can see you smiling…Our gardens, our beings have all sprung to life!
This is the time of the year where I begin to search for crafty and creative ways to use flowers in my projects. I thought you might enjoy seeing a few of the things that I have created and maybe you’d like to give some of these easy projects a whirl too. Of course if you don’t grow flowers just hop on over to your local market and snap some up!
Did you know that adding flowers to cakes is a gloriously delightful way to make them so special or even cover up a frosting mistake!(shhhh…our secret.) Here is the link to other cakes that I have decorated with flowers and also an edible flower guide. Yes! You can eat flowers!
Flower arranging is fun and relaxing. For this project I used my homegrown zinnias and jalapenos picked fresh from the garden.
When I get my flower farm and craft barn I am going to have an event called Bring Your Own Jar Day. Bring your own jar to the farm, pick fresh flowers and then there will be a class on how to modpodge and paint a jar.
Fresh picked floral wreaths? Yes….No?…what do you think?
I guess I am what you would call a mini flower farmer in training.
Just waiting for this dream to soar!
Tell me what are your dreams and how do you replenish your soul??
I hope you will join me for these upcoming posts that will arrive in you inbox on Thursday and Sunday of this week.
