I hope your week has been good….. I got to spend some time with my oldest son who came into town…. good family time! So I didn’t get to post anything for play day…..and I didn’t get to do a weekly wrap.. but…. Today’s post includes a little bit of everything.
Here are some things I have been working on this week!
Another winged girl…. she will be titled Journey when she is finished
went to Goodwill this week and found these for only $5.00! score!
Then I got new goodies from Donna Downey!…. can’t wait to use these on an artist gang Tuesday…. Speaking of artist gang.. I’m up on Tuesday next week so keep an eye out for that!
Pro types of new stencils…. by ME! wahoo! more soon on those…
The last thought……….. been doing alot of thinking this week on letting go…. and how much courage that takes….. to do something for someone, to give your money, to love openly, to trust and not knowing what will come back…. what the return is, if there is any….loving for the sake of loving…..doing the things to make a business grow, really never knowing if things will work…..
Letting go of the outcome….. it soo so scary…..being true to what’s calling you, obedient and faithful…. and then letting God take care of everything else…..It’s hard to not want to control…. but I have been reminding myself all week that He is in charge of the outcome….
I don’t talk about my faith walk much in this space, we are all on our own journey. But this has swirling around in my head all week, so I had to share….I hope that you can let go of some things…. be true… be faithful…. be inspired….. and know that you are loved!
What a great find at Goodwill! I need to go to that one for sure! Congrats on the stencil designs, can’t wait to see them! Be blessed my friend.
Just beautiful Shawn.Gives me goosebumps. Love your work!!!
I can’t wait for your stencils!!Love your work.Hope you are feeling better. 🙂
Thanks…. I can’t wait either!
Shawn I have had the same thoughts this week. I lost my job on Friday and it seems surreal. I’m striving to stay focused on what opportunities that presents so that i may lean into what I really want to do – art therapy – although it is a180 degree difference from what I’m educated, licensed and experienced to do – a tax CPA. Thanks for sharing your heart here.
Oh Patti, I am so sorry about your job loss…. man oh man that happened to me almost 8 years ago…. it sent me spinning…. and not in the right direction. But…. it propelled me toward my journey today and the beautiful, scary and creative place that I am at. Change is hard in any circumstance, but a job loss is hard. I pray that this time although hard brings to a new place in your journey… learning, growing…. I love your attitude… looking for opportunities…! I would love to encourage you in any way that I can. You are loved….keep me posted on your journey!
