my creative year

I just turned 44…it’s fine..all good…I still feel really young :))

Here are a few pictures from when I was 43 and what I was able to do creatively (it’s good to look back and remember these things…even in a busy year with graduation and all, creativity was happening!)

Starting off with last June: we picked strawberries and made jam! That’s a good feeling; to have your own jam at the ready in the freezer! 🍓

VBS last summer. It was a fun group effort creating the castle theme.

Painting a classroom at church!

A giant Reese’s peanut butter cup for Wes’ birthday. Whoa! That thing was rich and took us days to eat 😉

Ash’s wedding!

Remember back when I was passionate about working in the yard and creating paths in the woods? Yeah, that’s been awhile! Dave wishes that passion would come back…ha!! 🙂

Fall porch

Taking senior pictures in the back yard!

Kitchen holiday chalkboard

Waffle bar for Christmas Eve (new tradition)

Fun painting with Lauren in the teen room at church 🙂

We made macarons for the first time!

Painted our bedroom wall with special quote from our wedding

Chocolate cafe at church

Mikayla’s wedding!

April was our sewing month 🙂 lots of scrunchies and pillows

Smoothies and smoothie bowls are our love language 🙂

Beach combing and enjoying God’s creative nature

Trying to make a succulent cake 🙂

My most recent…finding thrift store chairs to paint for our kitchen

So thankful for all these creative opportunities and projects. Here’s to my year as a 44 year old!! I predict a TON of creative pursuits. Skye and I are gearing up for our art classes…who knows what else the year will hold?!?
