Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe TV is evil, and a lot of those how-to shows can be very inspiring. But sometimes, for me, they can take over, wasting evening after evening; and I can’t recapture that time lost.
I remember one day when I was a kid, wanting so badly to make something I thought I would burst if I didn’t. There was nothing in the house to work with besides some cheap napkins and a bottle or two of food coloring. I gave it a go, but what resulted was pretty lame and unsatisfying.
Today I am blessed with an abundance of material to makie-makie with. I want to be a good steward of these things. I believe crafting/painting can be a form of worship to the Master Creator. And it provides an opportunity to be generous and share what’s been made.
One of the benefits of being part of the Imperfect Prose community is that it motivates me to use the talent God has given me...not only to use it, but to develop it.
So, although it’s not the New Year yet, I’m making a resolution to create at least one thing a week as an act of thanksgiving for all I’ve been given...
...and not let all of this wonderful stuff collect dust.
Please feel free to hold me accountable if you want, and ask from time, “Whadda’ya makin’?” And how about you? Do any of you artsy types struggle in the same way? How do you overcome it?
