I am a creative being....I think most of us are in some way. Maybe you scrapbook....or dance.....or dream up organizational systems for your office/home (yup that counts!).....or find yourself party planning for the tiniest milestones.....etc.
After all, WE were created in the image of God....our Creator....thus, as His reflection, I think we would all feel the need to create in SOME way.
But what do I know??
I just know that I am more content when I am making something new. Even if it's just sprucing up something old....or using a new recipe like this one....for the 4 year old who loves rainbows....it wasn't hard, but it was new to me:
So for the little girl who loves gifts.....who was in LOVE with Natalia's faux pearls during dress-up time....I thought a jewelry box would be a lovely birthday gift.
I ran to Marshall's hoping I'd find a perfect little girl trinket box.....but to no avail.
Then I spotted the gem above. At a GEM of a price...not that it matters gift-wise...but don't deals make the world go 'round?
And with one small flaw....a tiny black smudged section on top. Well I rubbed and rubbed and cleaned the spot with little result....then I thought....oooo pretty paper!
.....and Modge Podge!
Hopefully I girlied it up just enough....
Either way...the key was what was inside!
Baubles and gems and glittery goodies galore!
I think it worked...
She was in awe!
So here's to getting your creative juices flowing....I promise you'll feel better once you do!
As for me....those were just a couple of the things I 'made' this week.
