Get Messy // October Prompt


When I heard this prompt, I knew how easy it would be choose many things to be grateful for. Yet, I was thinking about a post from another Get Messy Girl, where she writes about being happy or sad. What she is really happy about or really sad about. So for this month’s prompt I took the more philosophical approach.

I have been thinking over that and asking myself questions: What am I thankful for? What am I truly happy about? Or sad about? Where does happiness come from? What is better happiness or being content? That is when I realize one sentence could sum up all of that. If you can’t be happy about the basics of survival (food, water, shelter—no matter the condition), then nothing will make you happy because you don’t appreciate the basics. Everything else in life beside food, shelter and water is extra. You don’t need the extra to get by, really—they just add to life. Those have been my thoughts for the past month and I plan on sharing a full post on all these thoughts next week. 

P.S. It's my 10th week! Yay. =]

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?
