I've been reading a lot lately and here's a stack of most of it. . How? Well, part of it is where I had to slow down after surgery. But for everyday life, there's those moments when I would typically be scrolling social media and I picked up a book instead. . I've read a chapter or two before bed or while the boys play outside. Or *whisper* keep a book in the bathroom. . But page by page will get the book read even if it takes a while. And you'll be reading more than if you didn't try. . And if you're going to only pick one of these, grab Cultivate. It was so life-giving and encouraging and convicting all at the same time.
"The artist appeals to that part of our being … which is a gift and not an acquisition—and, therefore, more permanently enduring." ~ JOSEPH CONRAD . I've been thinking a lot about that universal part of us all that is the "artist". It is unifying. It is perhaps the one thing we undeniably share. It transcends culture, language, race, geography, political affiliation. It is the little piece of us that longs to look past appearances and connect with the spirit inherent in all things. I believe it is why we love photography, music, and art of all kinds. It is why we want to put into form the moments that take our breath away. Each time we practice slowing down, forgetting the past and future, and connecting with the spirit of what is in front of us at the moment, it is a miracle. And the world needs miracles now more than ever. . #photographerlife#artistsofinstagram#creativelife#creativemama#lifewithgigis

⏩⏩⏩SWIPE⏩⏩⏩ 🍂DIY Fall Garland🍂 🔸 🍁Made this cute garland to welcome fall; however, here in Toronto we're having a major heat wave(can't complain😝), but, doesn't feel like fall yet! 🍁Great activity for a family crafting project, or, for older kiddos; great way to get them exited about Fall. 🔸 🍂To make the garland I used construction paper in fall colours, the dimensions I used to make the triangle flags were: 10cm×7cm. 🍂Then, I used a hole punch to make 2 holes at the top of each triangle, in order to put through string, or, ribbon. I used a rustic string for the garland in the picture. 🍂Used a black marker to write on each triangle one letter, so it would read: "Hello Fall." 🍂Measured the string where I wanted to hang the garland, and cut. 🍂Placed the triangle flags in each string, cut the string according to desired length, and made a loop knot. 🍂Used hot glue to glue-on dry leaves Jacob and I had picked on one of our walks, and used transparent tape to hang the garland on our balcony door. 🍂That's it!! So easy, simple, & cute!!! 🔸 #fall2017#falldecor#diyfalldecor#fallart#diyfallart#craftymommy#condolife#torontolife#creativemama

I am planning to have a flash sale sometime this week.✨I am releasing the energy of my old art and making room for the art that my soul truly needs to create. I'm starting fresh with a clean palette and in a new place.✨My focus will no longer be making art for money or gain. I will be making art for ME. I will be feeding the creative desire within by creating whatever I feel my hands need to create and not what I think others would like most.✨I have different goals and am revisiting past dreams to fulfill the greatest potential I have. ✨So stay tuned for a flash sale this week. More details later.
This last weekend, my mother-in-law and I threw a pretty baby shower for my sweet sister. It was so fun to have a vision and then slowly bring it to life. Here is the front side of the invitation. I'm planning to share a few more images from the party so you can see how it all came together. Maybe in my next life I'll add event planner to my list of can do's.
