Monday Inspiration Celebration: Autumn
Autumn is in full swing with vibrant colors, the crackle of fallen leaves underfoot and crisp, clear blue skies. We have had some warm weather and the season is inspiring all my senses.
I am totally into pumpkins, having made two treks to our favorite family run pumpkin patch:
I got to spend several afternoons outdoors working in my art journals:
I had time to finish a sewing project - a dress/jumper for Cowgirl:
Work on some art postcards for a mail swap:
And I have been enjoying amazing tutorials for Photoshop from Kim Klassen via her Photoshop Recipe Book and her Skinny ecourse (check out her giveaway!)
The universe has been helping me practice receiving by placing so many amazing people in my path. A surprise package the other week held this beautiful gift from an equally radiant fellow blogger, mama and creative soul, Meegan:
This little figure perfectly expresses my life right now. Meegan sent another piece to Soraya and I feel honored to be in such inspirng company. I love the dialogue that has developed online amongst like-minded bloggers and Meegan never fails to provoke soul stirring thoughts through her posts and in an exchange of comments and emails. And she is a patron of the arts, having commissioned Cowgirl and me for a painting to hang in her daughter's room:
I am easing into the notion of receiving and am enjoying every minute of it!
So what gifts has Creativity blessed you with this past week? What inspiration would you like to share? Let's keep the goodness flowing!
