31 Days of Creating 2021 - Day 21

 “Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.” 

~ Camille Pissarro

I finished up another preemie gown. While I’m sewing I always pray for the babies and the families that will hopefully be blessed by these gowns. I know I make a lot of these gowns, but a) our community has a real need for them, b) this is one way I can give back and serve my community, and c) sewing is very therapeutic and grounding for me. I am sewing to bless others, yet it blesses me too. “Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25) That is a mighty gift!!! 

Have you thought about what grounds you and feeds your soul?  πŸ§΅❤️πŸͺ‘

31 Days of Creating 2021 - Day 20

 “The sun looks down on nothing half so good as a household laughing together over a meal.” ~C.S. Lewis (The Weight of Glory)

What is your vision for family meals? Do you value them? Do you eat together as a family? Do you use it as a time to discuss ideas, thoughts, principles, etc?  Our family dinner is super important to me. We have always made gathering together for dinner a priority. I can count on about one hand how many dinners we’ve had over the years without all of us in attendance. I have not won any popularity contests by declining activities, sports, etc that interfere with dinner time. But that was never my goal. Even with busy schedules, this is one time each day we know we will all be together. We make this a daily time of family refreshment. We join hands, pray, enjoy each other’s company, and discuss what’s important to us. I want my kids to remember all the amazing conversations and laughter that took place over our family dinners. 

Again, it goes back to what kind of life are YOU creating? What’s important to you? And how are you building refreshment into your day?  πŸ½❤️πŸ™πŸ»

31 Days of Creating 2021 - Day 19


“Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel.” ~Author unknown

It was another gorgeous fall day here!!! πŸ‚ My day was full to the gills, but delightful! How was your day? What kind of day did you create for yourself? Was it full of joy and thanksgiving?  

I had a small pocket of time this morning to sew some more preemie gowns. My daughter is going to deliver some to a local hospital for me tomorrow so I wanted to have a nice handful ready. πŸ§΅πŸŒΏπŸͺ‘

31 Days of Creating 2021 - Day 18

 “Your Monday morning thoughts set the tone for your whole week. See yourself getting stronger, and living a fulfilling, happier & healthier life.” – Germany Kent

What are your thoughts about Mondays? I really like them! Today was a busy one though, and I did a lot of driving people here and there, and sitting and waiting. I made sure to take my bag of yarn and needles, so while I was waiting I had something fun to do. Instead of tinkering on my phone, I worked on a preemie hat and crocheted an edging around the dishcloth I recently made. When I work these little delights into my day I am not discouraged when I have to sit and wait. It becomes a treat actually! How do you create small delightful pauses in your day? πŸ§ΆπŸŒΏπŸŒ»

31 Days of Creating 2021 - Day 17


“Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music.”

~George Eliot

Happy Sunday!!! How was your day? I hope it was joyful!!! Were you able to refresh and nurture your soul? One thing that refreshes me is beautiful music. My daughter played me one of my favorite hymns tonight - “Wonderful, Merciful Savior.” Do you like that hymn?

31 Days of Creating 2021 - Day 16


“True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.” 

~Antoine de Saint-Exupery


Happy Saturday!!! How was your day? What brought you joy? It was a gorgeous fall day here!!! πŸ‚ The air was crisp and the sky was blue!!! That created a sense of joy right there!!! But I also got a bunch of little chores done which felt very satisfying. I even started creating a tutorial for flannel burp cloths that I’ve wanted to do for awhile now. It was a delightful day! I hope yours was too!!!

31 Days of Creating - Day 15


“Tea time is a chance to slow down, pull back and appreciate our surroundings.” 

~ Letitia Baldrige

How was your Friday? This afternoon I brewed a delicious cup of hot tea and listened to some enchanting Celtic tunes. It was so rejuvenating and enjoyable! And perfect for a cloudy fall afternoon. I hope you also were able to carve out a few minutes to rest and refresh!  πŸŒ»πŸ«–πŸŒΏ
