The End

 Here it is, my last post! I can't believe it's over! I've been dreading writing this all day because I'm simply saddened at its ending. Yes, there were many days I didn't feel like posting. It wasn't always easy. But I'm going to miss it. The routine of it possibly.

I've learned so much through this year! I'm so glad I stuck through it. It made me be creative, it pushed me, and it helped discipline me in a way. It's been a wonderful year and now I'll have it recorded forever :)
Until my next project...

Goodbye Project 365!

Beauty Spots

Not only do I love this quote, but the picture behind it was taken at my new secret spot! Finding beauty in some not so beautiful places, always makes me happy!

Now making a few specials things for a special day tomorrow. I'm feeling sort of secretive lately.. Hmmm :)

Slowing Down

Sometimes you just need a breather. Alone time. I know I've been needing some. This is my special place, and I've been looking forward to simply sitting in the sand, feeling the wind, and feeling the icy water on my toes. This is another one of my God places. Quieting my heart, I feeling simply surrounded by his love. This was my favorite part of the day. 

I found this verse while sitting there and can't help but share its comfort:

“I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you..." Isaiah 42:6a

Prop Secrets

Secret prop I've been working on today, for a cute little boy. Yes, that's why you can't see it very well :). Oh, how few my words are tonight. I'm going to stop trying to make them come and just sign off :)

Once Upon...

Stories that begin with "once upon a time" are always the best kinds of stories! They'll take you away to another time and place. So long as you've kept your imagination with you. But if you've forgotten what it's like to dream and to laugh. To fly, and run as fast as the wind. To go on adventures and be the beauty or the hero. Well then, what a terrible loss that would be.

Game Day

After a month of working on Grand Prix cars, my brothers finally got to race them today. All three of them. A pirate ship car, a candy cane car, and a sword car. And, a few of them brought home trophies :).

Later in the day, Luke and I headed out to a football game. The flags were forgotten and so they ended up playing tackle which resulted in a very skinned up Luke..

The Best Days

Though not feeling the best today, I was pleasantly surprised at finding a love letter in the mail from my sweetheart. These are the best kinds of days! And, what made it even better was a date to a little, romantic restaurant. I have the best man in the world! He's so sweet to me. It makes my heart sing :)

This was our attempt at a self portrait, in very low lighting with a 50mm lens.. Doesn't work too well :) But it was fun!
