Of course my blog, Gail-Friends is one way to express my art, through writing, poetry, and photography:
The picture above also shows another way I can be creative - through cooking. I love to cook. Food is art, and food is love, right? The pic above shows my homemade kugel, and the one below shows some hamentaschen I made for Purim. They didn't turn out picture-perfect like I wanted, but they sure tasted good.
The decorations in my home are reflection of my heart.
The sewing arts are my least favorite, but I do cross-stitch, crochet, and like to make items for the synagogue. This is the arc cover I made for the High Holy Days:
Drawing, painting, calligraphy and crafts are the most neglected of my creative expressions, and Emily has inspired me to get back to those.
This pic above is of my mama, and a piece I created for her. It says, "The heart that gives, gathers". She is in a nursing home now, and I try to be creative in making her life more pleasant, through music, art, and any other way I can since she is very limited in activity now.
My clothing is an art expression. I love hats and wear them often.
Our marriage is creative, too. My husband and I both make an effort every day to show love and appreciation to each other. Our love and marriage is a work of art.
I've enjoyed Emily's series, and am grateful for her inspiration this month.
