Everyday Creative’s 52 Project – Week 6

Project 52 – Week 6 – Perspective

I have been so very excited about this week’s assignment!  Shannon took an inspiring picture of my oldest daughter several years ago.  It was the first thing that popped into my head when Kesti mentioned perspective.  M had on a pair of Ariat boots, which have an adorable logo on the sole of them.  Shannon took a shot of M and her daddy sitting on a fence.  She took it from below with the sole of her boot in focus.  Everything else was a little blurry and I LOVED it!  My attempt fell a little flat, but this project is for real right?!  I had a few other ideas and shots, but in the end I decided to just share this.  Not every picture will go as planned.

Kesti had so many great ideas.  She posted them all on her blog.  I’ve been dying to see which she would choose to share here.  I love this sweet boy’s expression and the pop of red.

Richard captured this amazing picture in his barn and I love everything about it!  I love the plates.  I love the contrast as you look out the window.   There are different elements that keep me looking around the image to see what else there is to discover.

I can do hard things

A person I love dearly was just diagnosed with Leukemia.  My heart is breaking for her and the challenges that lie ahead of her in this new struggle, and I feel so very helpless.  I thought if nothing else, I could offer comfort.  You see, this wonderful woman Amy Riggleman, is AMAZING! She has been through so much in her life, and is strong and an example to so many.  I know, without a doubt, that she can get through this battle with the same amazing courage she has displayed in the rest of her life.  So this quote is dedicated to her, and to her family and the challenges ahead.  Remember who will strengthen you, and remember you aren’t alone.  When in doubt, turn to the basis for this quote.  Phillipians 4:13

We LOVE You Amy!

SuperHero Shirt Day!

So a wonderful woman that I know is going through some pretty tough times.  Her sweet sister is in critical condition in the hospital with Pneumonia as a result of poor care in the facility where she lived.  This sweet sister is developmentally very young and loves Minnie Mouse.  To reach out and show support for this sweet girl we are asking you to wear a super hero shirt, or Black and Pink and take pictures and upload them here.  My friend will then compile the pictures to show to this angel and help her feel love and support from all over.  If you also want to include your first name and where you live in the comments (just a general location, no personal details of course) then we can show her that people all over are thinking of her!  Here is an excerpt from what my friend said about her sister.

At this point she has days or even hours left on this earth. We are asking family and friends to wear super hero shirts today In support for Mindy (Mighty Mindy Mouse). We want her to feel our love as she approaches the end of her time on earth. Please join with us in wearing a super hero, Minnie Mouse, or pink and black shirt this weekend.

Join us in supporting Mighty Mindy Mouse as she struggles for life, by sporting her colors or a super hero shirt and posting on Facebook to show us!

Create, a word that means so much more than we give it credit for

Create2

People say to me a lot, “Oh you are so creative, you’re so lucky…I wish that I was creative too”.  Its a comment that saddens me, because I truly believe that each of us has creativity in us, we just don’t always recognize or appreciate it.  This quote from Dieter F. Uchtdorf is one of my very favorites, because it encompasses what it truly means to be creative.  Not to make something people can see or touch, but to make the world a better place and create beauty that didn’t exist before you.

How do you create?  Consider your life, and the impact you are making on the world around you.  Can you begin to recognize the ways you create, that you might not have noticed or given yourself credit for before?  Can you find more ways to be creative?  To bring happiness and laughter to the world around you?  After all, that’s what we are all about here at Everyday Creative!

Everyday Creative’s 52 Project – Week 5

Project 52 – Week 5 – Leading Lines

What a fun week of pictures for me!  The weather has been so dreary for weeks.  Lots of rain and clouds.  The sun peeked out and the temperatures were climbing.  Made for a lot more options for me.  I think I am learning to appreciate the assignments more and more each week.  It’s forcing me to look at things in a different way.  PLEASE JOIN US!  I am enjoying this more and more as time goes on.  We want to see what you are doing too.  Post in the comments or on the Facebook page.

I had a terrible time deciding what picture to use this week!  I did narrow it to one and will put a few more on my personal blog.

We must have sent our dreary weather west.  Kesti dealt with an inversion this week, but still managed to get this amazing photo of her youngest.  Isn’t he just adorable?  What a perfect example of leading lines too.  It leads straight to that sweet boy.

Richard took a moment out of his very busy week to take this great shot.

I cannot stop staring at Shannon’s photo this week.  Just so tender and sweet!  What mother wouldn’t melt at the thought of capturing an image of her children at a moment like this?
