Get Messy // Magic

With Halloween three weeks away, I can't help but think about it. I am soo excited. I made Halloween hair bows with some fabric I bought at a thrift store. In one of the patterns wizard hats kinda like the ones I painted. I was so inspired by it. Then when one of other Get Mess Girl posted a page with the lyrics of "Kiss Like a Rose" and I knew I had to combine the two. I always think of magic when I hear that song. I am so happy with how it turned out. 

Happy Early Halloween!! Do you have any plans for this month or on Halloween? Please, let me know below.

Art Journal // God Gave Me

I have been thinking of all the wonderful things I am thankful lately. It's a long list but it's so tiny things. Like being out of bed or getting mac-n-cheese. These little things make up one whole day for me. It's what pushes to the next. One day I was on the internet and saw a question of "what is you and your husbands song". I looked at the comments curious to see what people put. Someone on there had wrote "God gave me you". I had that song stuck in my head for a few days, thinking over the lyrics. It's so true that God gave me James but more then that, God gave me my hands. He didn't have to; I could have easily been born without them but was.

With my hands I can do so much. I can hug, I can paint, I can type and I can hold His Holy book in my hands. It's the small things I witness with God that put everything back in place.

Today I am thankful for my hands in which I can create and share with you. What are you thankful for today?

Committing to Date Day

I usually don’t post tiny happening on this tiny blog because I feel that this blog is a place for me to post ideas and inspire but sometimes it’s nice to share the little things. To me, it’s the little things that matter most. That’s why I want to share with you guys a different kind of post.

I have my grandmas visiting this Wednesday. I will be going to my mother’s and staying for awhile; which means that my posting here might be light for the next few weeks. At the same time my partner will be working a part time job. So it’s going to be a very busy and full week.

Over last week I had a mile long to do list and do you know what I did? I tossed it out. Yup. I did what I had to and that was it. I wanted to soak in what little time I had left before the stress set in. I wanted to enjoy while I could. And I did just that.
On Friday, while James and I were out running errands together, we decided to take time to enjoy too. We made an impromptu picnic and decided that it was really was the little things that matter. We had decided that it was time to for us to be committed a day to go out on date, even a simple walk at the park.

It’s not like we don’t hang out. We are usually glued to each other but we are also doing about a million things; school, homework, job, blog, art, ect. So although we do those activities together, we aren’t enjoying that time. We are just pushing through the day. Committing ourselves to a date would mean that would let the worries, stress and daily to dos all slip away. We would just be two people enjoying, exactly like a date should be.

I plan on sharing more about how I am going to make that commitment become as easy as possible but for now I just wanted to share the idea. To let be known as to why my blogging will be sparse for the next few weeks.
