here is my thankful post from yesterday.
it just so happened that i was too busy enjoying it all to write it:)
this is my new front door decoration. i made it yesterday.
and i am thankful for it:)
*side note here--my oldest son loves--but loves to decorate seasonally. he needs to marry a woman with this passion:) i can only be all martha stewarty up to a point! (i love mod)
i continue to enjoy and be thankful for our lovely woodstove (and warm little fire) that we got from my husband's grandfather. i really heart the design!
i am thankful for my boys art class! they go once a week (for a 3 hour class--word!) and they study a different artist each month. learn the life and history of the artist, all about their technique, style and medium, make an artists journal for each artist, and complete an original piece in that artists style.
last month they studied Monet. um, did you know his first name was Oscar? kuddos if you did;)
anyway, here are my boys 'monets':
super lovely pieces of art for my home:)
also divine about art days, is that baby girl and i get 3 solid hours of uninterrupted 'girl time'!
usually this means lunch out together, and she always wants to go shopping:) such a sweetie!
what this makes me truly thankful for is the way we are made in the image of God.
i believe that we are creative because He is creative.
we make things because He is the ultimate maker.
we love beauty because He loves beauty.
and i love because He first loved me.
ALL things to be thankful for!
