I’m so glad you stopped by my blog! Here is where I will talk about the things that are important to me: Jesus, creativity, nature, travel and those I love.
Nature, God’s creation, has always been amazing to me. I grew up in Pennsylvania on a strawberry farm that was surrounded by woods. Often I would escape to my favorite places, by the creek with a tiny waterfall or in a patch of vibrant green moss. Gently, God’s creation would soothe, fill and satisfy.
Later, I married the love of my life, Matt, and we were blessed with three sons! I spent the next 20 years homeschooling those wonderful boys and learning so much along with them. One of the subjects was art. I always thought that the artistic gene had missed me. So many people in my family are gifted in creativity, but for some reason I wasn’t. Well, God surprised me! While teaching art to the boys, I realized that I enjoyed it immensely. So, I have spent a lot of time creating, especially jewelry. In fact, others appreciated my jewelry too and wanted to buy it. So, I started Gentle Spirit Creations and began selling my one of a kind jewelry.
Once my homeschool teaching days were over, my creative soul took wings! I now enjoy photography, painting, drawing, crochet, embroidery and rug hooking, along with whatever new art endeavor comes along! My hubby and I also love traveling with our 5th wheel to new places along with geocaching.
So, I hope you will enjoy this journey with me. I’ll share my new creative projects along with photos of God’s wondrous creations and my thoughts to go along with it. Glad you are along for the ride!!
