I Am Learning

I am learning
glitter, pen, acrylic gel medium, repurposed menus

Life is learning.

There is no perfection.

There is always change.

There is always disruption.

There is always something new.

There is always another adventure.

There is always more joy.

There are always more questions.

There is room for error.

There is invention in mistakes.

There is a process to go through.

I made this card to remind myself that everything I am going through, life, creation, raising kids, finding zen, keeping house, work, joy, everything is a process.

And I made it in glitter to remind myself that not only is this a process and am I imperfect, but this is the only life there is and we may as well enjoy it.

And have faith in ourselves.

Have faith in the process.

This is life.

And for anyone who is interested in spending the days leading up to Christmas making crafts and painting cards and knitting gifts and decorating and celebrating and hosting and cooking and being generally all around creative, then stick around. I'm calling it the 25 days of Christmas, and I'm counting down to Christmas, making my lists, checking them twice, gonna find out how much glitter to buy.

Check in tomorrow. I'll have the rules and sidebar finalized. (because it's a work in progress)

I'm learning too! Love this post because it is so true, there is no perfection as well the room for error. I should do something to remind myself, perhaps a art journal page or something. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you for this. I've decided my 25 day Creative Challenge will be focused on my photography. Imagine my utter dismay at getting five rolls of film back today that did NOT turn out because of something faulty in my brand new camera. And because I am working with film, I didn't know it until just now and thus my trip to San Fran has no real documentation.

But, that rant aside, I'm going to keep photographing and posting every day. Just like you.
