No, Not Bungee Jumping!

When was the last time you tried something out of your comfort zone? I am not thinking of anythin as radical as bulging your corneas with bungee jumping. No, I have in mind expanding your sense of yourself in an artistic adventure.

I have a number of friends who have tried their hands at painting. Some choose watercolors, others oils, while others dabbled with acrylics. Across the board they had wonderful results.

We owe it to ourselves to make room for artistic expression. After all, the creative process puts us in touch with the Creator.

So speaking of creating...I told you that I would introduce you today to a friend of mine that is also a creative giant that could change your life...Oooops! Our schedules are both so full that the first time I can get with her to interview her is Saturday...So..I will post the interview on Monday bright and early.Sorry to disappoint..

RAK winner of The Purpose Driven Life is Nikki Z....please email me with your address and watch for your package from Amazon.

For all of you that are following along in The Purpose Driven too will have another chance to win the book by reading Chapter three( you can find it at and posting your thoughts on the book so far. I will challenge you to follow along with me through next Friday with a new prompt each day. I will randomly pick a winner again next Friday.

So tell me about your artistic expression......What do you do to express yourself artisicly. I have started an art journal and I will be learning new techniques and art meduims through this year. This is such a blessing in my life...

I would LOVE to know what YOUR creative outlet is..maybe I want to give it a try!


  1. I am enjoying photography, writing, and plan to sew, quilt, and make glass charms this year. I love to create. That is the word I chose for this year for myself.

  2. Can't wait to see who your art journal interview is with! (I'm thinking I might have an idea....) I also saw that I won the book this week! Thank you soooooooo much! I'll pm you my addy! You're the best Susan! Love you!

  3. Oh and I forgot to post what my creative outlet is....for me, it's scrapping and art journaling. I'm working on a couple of art journals right now. They really allow you a "release" from whatever it is that your journaling about.

  4. I have started working in my art journal again also ... it's sometimes hard for me to express my deep fears, so this is a real challenge for me!
