In a divisive time, with fears about the economy and personal sustenance, there is so much creativity being embraced.  Thanks to Joanna Gaines, Farmhouse chic and cozy homes have been inspired, admired, and copied.  In fact, more money is being spent on home renovations and remodeling than in the past ten years.  Collectors have been seeking Rae Dunn items and other pottery, cozy textured pillows and throws, artistic tablescaping, and special home displays are the influences so many of us reach for.  Creativity in all its forms has begun to be so greatly appreciated:  photography, cooking, painting, handmade items, handwritten journals, knits and crochet, lettering and writing with special pens and papers, and an appreciation for beauty, wabi sabi, ( ) in imperfect images and forms.

We desire the need to create, to enhance, to aspire, and be validated and appreciated.  We seek to add beauty to the world and build environments and homes that make people feel safe, embraced, and welcomed.

We have plenty of rules, jobs, financial, and family concerns, but having an inspired respite and the self-knowledge that we have tried to improve the world one creative idea at a time is very alluring.  Keep seeking and creating peace.  Keep adding your unique additions to the world for others to appreciate, thank, acknowledge, and improve one imaginative and artistic act a time.  We need all the individual beautiful expressions to raise us above the mundane and motivate each to find the creativity in our own lives.

by doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others

  5. I love this — it seems to me that fostering creativity, both in yourself and in others, can be so healing, so empowering, and such a brave act in a fatigued world. Artistic expression affirms our investment in the world as a potentially good place, in life as a worthwhile pursuit, and in ourselves as compassionate agents in our community. Thanks for the encouraging post!

    • I love how you put this – “a fatigued world” is such an apt description – thank you for your lovely comment!
