I wish I could see my colors...the way for me to follow dreams and not give up. It is hard for me to never give up when I am not quite sure where I am going. Maybe God is giving me stepping stones but only a few at a time. I have to look at it this way.
This was my first "real" painting. I painted it for someone who has very cool personal colors...it is funny, I really thought I wouldn't get past doing "aura" paintings. I see the colors in my my mind and with my eyes so I thought it would be a nice gift for those who understand me and I wouldn't have to really grow the talent. My friend actually liked my little painting (years of lousy self esteem, so I thought she wouldn't like it) and shared it with others. My little seed of confidence began to grow just enough for me to start this blog and for me to keep painting. Then, I got the courage to try a few new things....once they turned out okay, the fear started to leave. Now, I am not scared to try new things even if I don't think I am good enough, I will try. :) It only takes one person to plant the seed of creativity in someone else and then they can plant it in someone else too. Please encourage someone to be creative today!!
I will always remember where I was when I heard about the planes hitting the WTC....I was taking Ellie to preschool and Emma was a newborn.... I remember going in to pick Ellie up in the afternoon and there was complete silence in the halls. No one was talking...we all had this look of shock on our faces and we all wanted to run and hug our children.... We will never forget....
I am a mom of 3 girls and a wife to Kyle! I want to help others learn about themselves by sharing myself and my life. I would love to encourage others, to help them be creative and use the gifts God has given them. If I can do this, I am happy!

Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past stop planning the future stop trying to figure out precisely how we feel stop deciding with our mind what we want out heart to feel sometimes we have to go with whatever happens happens
