This weeks Tickled to Tangle, It's a String Thing #67 required 3 things we are grateful for to be written in the string line in honor of Thanksgiving.
I drew out the string line and promptly wrote, Family, Health, and Home. These are things I am extremely thankful for all the time. I drew the tile using the tangles, Crescent Moon and Cornerz. Then I started thinking......
I thought about what I was really grateful for today. Of course, as I said, I am always grateful for Family and Friends, my Health, my Home, etc.; but today I am grateful that I have the opportunity to pursue my interest and passion in art, the time to do so, and the means to explore with a variety of materials.
I love art. I love creating. If I couldn't create in some way, I would not be whole. I am not really accomplished in any area of art, but I enjoy doing it immensely. I have been sewing for years, I love to paint furniture and create something new out of "stuff". I was opened to drawing through Zentangle and I recently started crafting in glass. I find a satisfaction in creating that I have never found any where else. When I am upset, sad, or energized, creating gives me a sense of peace, accomplishment, and completion.
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't create something. Yes, I am very grateful for Opportunities, Accessibility, and Means.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving. I wish that you find your "happy place" like I have in art.
