    I found this book today on our bookshelf - I have no recollection of where it came from but it is a treasure of beautiful Christmas poems by Helen Steiner Rice. A gift from above...Merry Christmas today and everyday. 🌟

    Even on the worst of days beauty presents itself in innumerable ways. Tears coexist with laughter. Sorrow with hope.

    Going through my VSCO feed and reliving some beautiful moments from the past couple of years. I'm terrible at keeping up with personal photos but I am glad I have a stash of favorites somewhere. Even if they are only phone snaps. Someday I will find the time...I keep telling myself that anyway.

    If we are free from the burden of trying to be completely original, we can stop trying to make something out of nothing, and we can embrace influence instead of running away from it. - Austin Kleon ✨

    "Creativity removed from shame looks like childlikeness— fundamentally fun. It’s motivated by discovery rather than perfection. When perfection isn’t the prerequisite for creativity, the entire process has purpose, not just the final product. Through this lens, every experience yields goodness. Even failure becomes a reason for celebration. Learning is growing. As we create under the gaze of His unwavering acceptance, we, too are being made in the making." - @brettleyruggles (thank you for sharing this truth!)

    My kids inspire me in so many ways. They remind me to live freely and to take the time to play. It can be a hard thing to do some days when the responsibilities are piled high and the weight of life is heavy. They are so good about making time for the things that bring them joy, why has it become so hard to do that as I have gotten older? Funny, I am supposed to teach them, yet they often times are the ones teaching me.

    "I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he is—when you produce fruit, when you mature as my disciples.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭15:5-8‬ ‭

    Color happy! Fabrics for an ombré quilt I'm thinking about making. Most of these were found thrifting, so fun when they fit together into something awesome!

    I used Kona cotton for the first time on these quilt tops...sewed up like a dream! Still feel like a quilting novice, but getting faster and more precise with each one. It's so rewarding to draw the pattern and then see all of the pieces come together with every step.
