Jane Brocket, The Gentle Art of Domesticity, p. 16
I haven't read this book, but I've seen this quote a few different places. I appreciate its message and its eloquence and I thought I'd share it with all of you. I have no idea what rock buns are, but I love the idea that my simple, imperfect creations can be called inspirations! So I was thinking today, what are a few of my recent masterpieces? Not surprisingly if you read my blog, I put a lot of thought and passion into food. I love when I am able to make someone happy with it, as far from gourmet as it is.
Another thing I used my creativity to create is our home. A few years ago, we were blessed to be able to have our home built. I put different ideas together and designed the home we now live in. I didn't built any of it, but my ideas went into it. Every time I decorate or re-arrange a room, I feel it's creative inspiration. It gives me joy.
Here is a project I need to finish! I'm just waiting on my inspiration. It's my small, very boring mudroom/laundry room. The only thing I've done in here is put up those hooks, which would normally have coats and backpacks on them, but my children are at school right now. Sabrina's inspiration was putting her big magnet on the washer. Hehe I want a great color on the wall and maybe some vinyl lettering. But I don't want to buy one pre-made because I prefer to have uniqueness (is that a word). No inspiration yet. I want to figure out what kind of decorations will brighten it up and still be my style. So I'm waiting on that inspiration!!!
Ultimately, in this stage of my life, most of my inspiration takes the form of teaching and showing my love for these three crazy kids who I love so much. So next time I make a craft with them, tell them one of my strange stories or even just color with them, I'll have to remember that it's me using my unique "talents" and creativity. Who could ask for a better masterpiece than them?
I'd love to know---What are your recent inspirations and creative masterpieces?
