Donna of Comin' Home has done an awesome post about the creative home. She shares about her childhood growing up with artist parents and how she has raised her own children in an artistic environment and how she has accomplished this. She shows us how we too can have creative homes, how our children and husbands can join us in our creativity, how we can put it into action. Very easy, practical, common sense advice. Living the artistic life for this family just comes naturally. It's not something they have to think about. It's just what they do, how they live. It's as natural as breathing and eating. It's a part of the everyday routine.
This is one of the most amazing posts I think I have ever read on the subject, and Donna is an amazing person. If you have not met her yet, I encourage you to look around her blog. It is by far my favorite homemaking blog. She is a wife, mother, homemaker, sewer, artist, song writer, home educator and more and probably one of the sweetest women you will ever know. I am so excited about what she shares in her post, and I can't wait to put it into practice. I want what they have for my family.
The post is rather long; so make sure you have five minutes to read it when you go. But it is worth every minute. I encourage you to read it all the way through. I truly believe that it will make a difference in your life and that of your family and help you along this journey that we are all taking together of learning how find the time for our art and making it our lifestyle, daily. I'd love to know what you think of her post after you've read it.
And hope you enjoy the above photos of my family having fun together playing frisbee in the backyard. We cherish our family time, and I love to share some of our special moments with you. They are what make my life worthwhile.
