keeping the farm fancy
I love crafty homemade things. And I love nothing more than to create them myself. However, with a busy household it’s not quite so easy to sit down and make room to drag out all the supplies; let alone make time to create. But I’ve found I NEED that time and I am happier when I’ve made time for myself to do so.
I believe that God instilled in us women the desire to be creative. Whether it’s in choosing our family’s clothing or home decor or using our creative endeavors to launch a business to supplement the family income. In Proverbs 31 the Bible states how this model women creates clothing and wares to sell from her hands.
I have long noticed the quality of women artisans in our area, which is one reason why I chose to start my Rusty ReDeux business. I bring in amazing teachers and entrepreneurs to showcase their talents and provide the rest of us opportunities and skills to inspire our own creative spirits.
This summer among many goals I have, one is to make time each week to explore my creative side. I purchased a book called The Artistic Mother which gives assignments of sorts. Also I am participating in a craft swap on one of my favorite blogs. All of this will lead up to a swap of my own and finally The Gathering event that I am so very excited for. A day full of incredible workshops to participate in, fabulous food, demonstrations, giveaways and inspiring shopping. Won’t you join me?
