What’s Inspiring You This Week?
This Week, I’m Inspired By
My Amazing Kindred Spirits –
The Creative Community Who Nurtures Me
At Create With Joy!
We all have them…
Weks that sap our creative energy and threaten to steal our joy.
At times like these, it helps to have friends
Who can inspire us and shift our perspective!
This week, I’m delighted to introduce you to two amazing bloggers
Who have mastered the art of viewing life in a whole new way!
Mary C. Nasser
Mixed-Media Map Art
I can’t remember when I first “met” Mary…
But I’ve been an admirer of her art for quite some time now.
She is an art educator and painter who specializes in the
Creation of mixed-media paintings layered with maps and geologic drawings.
Of her art, Mary writes:
I am captivated by the idea that geological shifts and transformations
Seem to parallel both individuals and their relationships:
Continually changing, varying, shifting and developing, too.
Be sure to visit May this week –
She is a treasure whose work and perspective is one-of-a-kind!
Jen at Rich Faith Rising
Because Life Is A Poem And Love Is Eternal
(Music Enabled Blog)
There is nothing more exciting to a blogger
Than discovering a new blog that they love.
There is nothing more exciting to a writer
Than discovering another whose words make their spirits soar.
There is nothing that makes a seeker happier than finding a shelter
Where they can find comfort, solace, and truth.
So, when I came across Jen’s blog –
I felt like I’d found a home away from home.
Jen writes from the heart on matters of faith.
She brought me to tears when I read
When Cancer Wins And Sun Shines With Amazing Grace.
If you’re looking for a blogger who can move you with words –
Be sure to visit Jen!
