A share……….

I shared this on Fb a few days ago and thought it would be appropriately posted here, too!

Especially at this time of year when ‘gift buying/giving’ is uppermost in most peoples’ minds. Years ago I/we encouraged our boys to make the card that they could give to that special someone or color/draw a sweet picture that could end up on the frig. “Heart” is the essence of creativity and creating is putting your heart ‘out there’ for the world to see/have. That is why rejection (no matter how slight) becomes a wound. Just some thoughts on a dreary, foggy, about to be snowy day. Please, pass this along if you are so led. Til next time………..

  1. Doreen, this says it so well. An artist is never compensated for his/her time. It is passion which drives us creative types.

    This is such a good post for this time of year and a reminder to all of us to appreciate the time and talent invested in one-of-a-kind art.

    So very true Doreen. Unless you are a maker of things, whatever they may be, people do not appreciate the hours of work that goes into that item. Making something and giving up your time to create it is perhaps one of the loveliest things one person can do for another. Whether it is a gift or something for sale the love and creativity is still there. I will pass the above on to other crafty friends. Hugs….

  6. So true! Have a wonderful weekend Doreen 🙂

    Very true! I’ve always loved homemade gifts – I think you can feel the love and hugs.
    We have a dusting of snow this morning and lots of cold weather! I think winter has arrived!
