October - moving forward, creating once more ...

Friday, October 09, 2015

I was thinking today how very lucky I am to be able to create, to be able to do something with my heart that hopefully touches someone else's in some way or form.  I love finding pretty sayings to make the collage that I put on instagram and facebook, usually they have some meaning to where I am in that moment in time or where I would like to be...  I absolutely adore taking photos and to be totally honest I have no technical skills but I know what I like and that is what you see.  Making my little inspirations in glass really holds a magical place in my heart for a few reasons, meeting extraordinary people and their stories.... One of my first ever custom orders was for a girl whose sister had just lost a baby... they found me through an advertisement in Country Style magazine and I remember crying {the dad had written this gorgeous verse for baby Remy} while I made this ornament that they could hang on there tree each Christmas as just a tiny reminder of this beautiful little soul that they had lost.  It was such a privilege.   I have some days where I think I have been doing this for so long should I try something new and then someone asks me to do something special for them {one to wrap around there wedding bouquet, babies names and dates, anniversaries, special birthdays, special travel and so much more} and I know that is why I continue to do it.  So on this pretty Spring afternoon in my little railway cottage I feel pretty content and blessed to be doing what I love.
To live with purpose, to say the courageous thing, to celebrate the simple gift, to follow your dreams.  This is a happy life. - wayland henry
