The Thankful Project : Day 5

I am back for day 5 of The Thankful Project. I fell off the boat for day 3 & 4. But no guilt, I had real life stuff happening :)

Today's prompt is "a talent you have" and well I'll be honest I thought about just skipping day 5 as well. Because often I feel like I don't have a lot of talents. But one thing that came back to me numerous times was my passion to be creative and create beauty around me. I grew up in a home where creativity was encouraged and so I attribute my love for creating beauty to that. For as long as I can remember my mom has been a collector of items that many would call junk, but with a little love she often would turn it into something beautiful. Also growing up my mother made almost all of our clothes and I remember she would pick out fabric with a little extra edge and add a little ruffle here and there to bring a little beauty to our somewhat plain and boring clothes. (we were in a church that had rules on how to dress) She told me once that she had been accused of being to fancy ;)

Our bridal table from our wedding, that I had so much fun creating.

In the past few years I've been busy pursuing a career and have not always had the resources to pursue my creative side, but since getting married I've been blessed to have the ability to embrace that more and the more in touch I become with my creative side the more alive I feel as a women. I really believe God created us as women to not only feel beautiful but also to create beauty around us in our homes, our clothing choices and in so many other areas of life.

So today I am grateful for creativity and the ability to create beauty in this world!
