live and let light

ahhh. last saturday.
what a great time we had!

we got out some of our favorite art supplies.
papers, paints, markers, inks.

 and we made signs with words that mean something to us.
it was an assignment of our brave girls club art class.

there were giggles, teasing, and learning from each other.

the dining room table was a mess...

but our  hearts were 'home'.

this was emma's sign.
she papered, painted, doodled to her hearts content.
it now sits on her window seal.
and mine.
'let your light shine'
sits in my studio...
a reminder of why i do what i do.
matthew 5:16

we are going to sit down.
my daughter and i.
with a calendar to schedule more art dates.
our goal is once a month.
more if possible.
and ohhhh do we look forward to it!

are you creative?
i'm sure you are!
in your home, in your kitchen, with your kids or with a craft or art.
why don't you link up and join us!

today i am thankful for
~creating with my daughter
~inspiration from everywhere and everyone
~finding a friend who has the same tastes i do
~my treadmill
~an upcoming art retreat

How lovely to Create with your Daughter! I so miss doing things with my children now that they are grown and far away... Just popping in here from In the Studio - thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my Write-on Frame - ;-}

Ooops! I meant to also mention that I've not heard of Brave Girls Club before and I peeked at their site, too - ;-}

That is awesome to have creative time like that together. "Giggles, teasing, and learning from each other." What more could you ask for?! I am sure you will both look forward to these art dates! :)

Love this blog! Jumped over from Studio JRU hop. Matthew 5:16 is my verse this year. Love the picture you did. This is the 3rd time today God has put the phrase "Let your light shine" before my eyeballs today.

Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice
from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own
but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
