I feel like I've had a dry season of lacking creativity in my personal life. I wrote about this before, and shared that I believed it to be an awesome opportunity to enjoy the creativity coming from friends around me. God may not have been giving me ideas or inspiration in my own life, but He sure was doing something incredible for other people. It was a season for me to sit back and enjoy what He was doing in them. It was a really restful, refreshing, and encouraging time for me and I'm so glad I got to have a break!
But, now it's back! At least for now. When God gives me an idea, I tend to jump on it as fast as possible for fear that it will suddenly disappear. I feel like when He gives me inspiration to be creative, it comes in little spurts, and it's an opportunity for me to put all of my energy (at night when the children are asleep, of course) into making something that reflects me and my faith. I had that opportunity last week and it was so invigorating for me!
I created some new pretty things for the shop (more to come when I have a chance to take pictures and list):
I invested in a new lens for my camera that has inspired me to start taking more pictures of my kids with my DSLR again, and not just from my iPhone anymore:
I had a dear friend over to teach me how to make maxi skirts. We had so much fun troubleshooting together, and I'm a little ashamed to say that I have become a maxi-skirt-makin'-addict:
Have any of you ever gone through a season like this? I'd love to hear how you got through it and what happened when/if your creativity finally came back. Hope everyone has an awesome week!
