This week our assignment is to use the picture on the blog button on the left in a creative way. I made a decorated basket, which I will show you further down in the post. But, first I wrote a poem:
to follow Thee Creative Call.
I believe creativity is a God-given gift. He is the great Creator, after all. For many years, I have studied Proverbs, and I found this very interesting verse:
Proverbs 8:12 (King James Version)
I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
To me, "witty inventions" speaks of creativity. I've also heard it said that if we do not follow our creative call, God will find someone who is willing. How many times have you thought of doing something, and found out later that someone else had done it?
Okay, here's my creation(drum-roll please!):
(I wanted to use sepia tones for the photo, but couldn't figure out how to do it. If you know, please tell me in comments.)
And, another part of the assignment...
Here's a pic of me with my creation.
I'm glad Karen is encouraging us to band together as sisters to be creative and to support each other's creativity.
I also want to recommend a great book titled "The Creative Call" by my friend Janice Elsheimer. You will love it, Sisters!
