I’ve never considered myself to be a very anxious person in the past but as of recently I’ve really been struggling with feelings of unrest and anxiety. It’s gotten so bad that I’ve had a really hard time
Beautiful! I too am struggling with creating at the moment so I am trying to do it for the process and not the end result, and to do it for my own enjoyment and relaxation rather than for what anyone else thinks. I’ve recently discovered Illustrated Faith and I’m so glad.
As someone new to all of this, I say thank you. Why do we make it about everything it shouldn’t be? I’m not an especially “artsy” kinda gal, but I am enjoying this process immensely. So again, thank you. :)
All I can say is Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I have been struggling with these same feelings and asking myself the very same questions. Thank you for helping me see things clearer and to remind me that God’s got this.
“Dear younger me
Where do I start

I’m looking forward to warmer weather, the smell of coconut and tropical goodness, even if it’s just a wax block that smells like I took a bath in Hawaiian tropic suntan oil, getting outside and finding creative inspiration in the limitless possibilities of God’s own artwork painted from the ground my feet stand on (or sand and waves my body lays in) all the way up to the clouds in the sky. And I also am looking forward to be randomly selected to win the shaker cards. XOXO
I’m looking forward to spending quality time with God and in my War room… so I can be inspired by the Holy Spirit to enjoy the Gift that very soon I’m going to receive when I made my faith tested and I won a contest to get my first journaling Bible!. I will start selecting my favorite Bible verses and making marks and sketches … to plan ahead how they will look like in the future :)
As the weather warms up and the snow and ice disappear, I hope to get outside and go for walks and do some work in my flower beds. Inside, I need to de-clutter my craft room and do some paper crafting! I look forward to trying one of your shaker cards. Thanks for all your inspiration! God Bless.
I hope you all are as excited as I am that there are only 22 days left until Thanksgiving!!! It’s one of my favorite days of the year. I love sitting around the table with loved ones and s
