30 Days of Creation

Do you love to create? Big or small projects, online or offline - it doesnt matter. Creating something that you dreamed up or recreating something you saw online or in a store is so much fun! I'm not uber crafty but I like to try my hand at different projects.

You can sign up for a cool project going on that is 30 days of creation - a new project each day - I'm going to do my best to participate in this , I hope I dont fall behind!

*Here's a little of what you'll learn in the 30 days:
  • prompts and creating every single day is HARD, but worth it.
  • our intuition is how the Divine speaks to us.
  • our intuition can be trusted, and wants the best for us. always.
  • our dreams should scare us a little bit.
  • we already have everything we need to manifest those dreams. And God wants them, too.
  • we are surrounded by conscious creators of each and every day. (that's us, guys!)
  • we can start taking steps TODAY to make our dreams manifest.
  • we journal to understand, contemplate, play and dream. journaling is a very important part of each and every day.
  • self care is of the utmost importance.
  • by taking care of ourselves and making ourselves the first priority, we are able to live more authentically and love others better/more wholly
  • we are not our circumstances.
  • we are able to let go of the details because the Divine has our back.
  • we are vessels for creativity.

Pinterest Project Time

Ever since I found out we were having a family reunion in July , I thought it'd be a great idea to do a "Pinterest Party". I asked all the girls to bring a craft that we could all do and here is one of the ones we did. My sister Allison was in charge of this one. We went to thrift stores in the Boise area and picked out white dishes. You can use cups, bowls or plates. 

Then we used Sharpie markers to draw a design or write a phrase.
My sister Laura (above left) traced her little 1-year old's hand. 
My sister Allison (above right) wrote a saying she liked.
You can use a damp paper towel to erase lines in case things dont go as planned.

I loved what my sister Julianne did with her dishes

These were mine. They are ice- cream bowls - the inside

And here is how I decorated the outside.

Once you are done with your designs, you bake the dishes in the oven for 30 - 40 minutes at 350*. Make sure the ink in your designs is completely dry before putting your project in the oven. If the ink still smudges after you take the dishes out, try baking for a little longer. That's what we did and it seemed to work just fine. 

My sister Allison made this & we all signed it and she gave it to my parents. 
Pretty cool gift I thought!

This was a fun project to do and didn't take a lot of time & wasn't complicated.
(unless you are a perfectionist. tehe)
