These last few weeks have been pretty busy.
I am working on a devotional with a friend.
I am creating the art pages and she is writing the devotions..
My friend Nina is an incredible woman of God..and boy, can she write some powerful devotions.
She has a true gift of thought….I love me some Nina.
When she asked me to do this with her, I was a little well…let’s say intimidated. I mean REALLY, me do the art
are you kidding me. What if I
screw mess it up and she hates it, but because she is so kind she would never
say anything, then she is trying to sell this mess to the public..and they are like.(insert cali girl accent) who and the
heck did this art…she really needs to stick to her day job..oh that’s right she doesn’t have one..
So, here I am listening to her tell me how MUCH she LOVES my art and it’s just perfect..blah blah blah, blah blah!
So I say YES!!!.
Oh, did I mention there are 31 day of devotions..meaning,, YES, I am to create 31 different ones.
We talked about maybe I could do 15 then reuse some..but because I am crazy weird, once I started, I wasn’t ok with that
so yep it is 31.
I have about 11-12 more to do by the end of next week.
I’m truly enjoying this so much. It’s a time when I just turn on music and tune out the noise of the world
well most times anyway..
I love to paint in a Whimsical fashion and that is what Nina was drawn to.
This is a little sneak peek into a page.
I really am learning a lot about myself in this process…that I WAY to hard on myself.
That I really need to chill out on being a perfectionist and just let what happens happen under the brush.
God gave me a gift..so when I am doubting myself, my abilities and what I think is not that great
of creativity. I am doing it to God, be cause we were after all created in HIS image.
So today, a month and half later, I am very grateful for the privilege to be working along side an amazing friend.
To be able to do something I LOVE and to possible make someones day just a little brighter with all the colors and God’s words in the devotion.
I can’t wait to see it all printed and bound..stay tuned for that.
Thank you Nina for having the confidence in me to work beside you..Love you girl.
