Welcome to my "Amazing Grace Artists" Blog!

Here is a little corner of the world devoted to all things to do with the "Amazing Grace Artists" Faith Based Art Group on Facebook and what we have going on on there and out in the world...Perhaps I can persuade you to join us if you haven't already!

I hope to at least be able to inspire you to create something, make you think, and maybe, just maybe, show you something new now and then! Most of all, I hope to give YOU, a safe and caring place to just relax and share your special, God Given artsy gifts with others! So be sure to leave comments if you are touched by anything here, and please-share your thoughts and ideas with us all! Art is for everyone-it comes from our hearts and souls, and I think we should share it with everyone and show them how easy living an art-filled, creative life can be. Be sure to watch for free product giveaways and contests also!

Embracing Our Demons and Other Fun Things!

ell, it is the first month of the new year, and I have been away from my blog for way too long! I have a good reason though-I am having to help my sister who had to have surgery...This will probably go on for another 6 weeks...

I am a follower of the "A Year In The Life Of An Art Journal" blog, written by  Rachel Whetzel, and she is doing 3 part prompts with music, a word and a picture or photograph. Here is what I came up with for the first one, which is the word "Present"

This, to me, means learning to love myself as I am, and learning to live with NOW as opposed to living in the past or the future. Once I "Embrace the Demons" and learn to live in the "here and now", I will be able to fully live my life! It's just a bit of a shame it has taken me so long to get to this point!! Don't put off living in the "Present"!
