Day 216 of 366: thankful that I got to draw!

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.

Romans 12:6

August is going to be a different month altogether, I vowed as I looked back at July pitifully. All the things that I did not make time for, I decided to do just that starting with drawing earlier today as I pushed all distractions aside. I sat down wanting to draw a butterfly, but I ended up drawing silly cupcakes and it was fun!Β 

I am thankful that I finally made the time to draw.

Day 213 of 366: thankful for colored pencils

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.

Romans 12:6

I’m looking to get back into drawing – fingers crossed that I can still draw a little something – so I went out and bought a drawing book, pencils, erasers, and lots of coloring pencils! There were so many to choose from including a glowy pack, but I eventually settle for the normal packs. I would’ve love to get the pack with 76, but most likely, I’ll have to order it through Amazon.

I am thankful for the rainbow in a box.

Day 176 of 366: thankful that I got to create

He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weaversβ€”all of them skilled workers and designers.

Exodus 35:35

A friend of my sister is starting his very own soup business and he needed a flyer to advertise over social media. I was only too delighted to jump at the chance to create it for him.

I’m thankful that God has given me the strength and energy to work on the flyer and thankful that it was created inside an hour.

Day 75 of 366: thankful for arts and crafts

He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weaversβ€”all of them skilled workers and designers.

Exodus 35:35

When I was a little girl, I met Arts & Crafts and fell in love with it courtesy my parents. Dad was skilled at drawing and Mom was always creating decorations out of anything that was usable. I would happily pass the hours painting, drawing, or crafting something. However, that all changed when I found writing and neglected the other talents the Lord has blessed me with.

Although I can’t paint, draw or decorate as well as before, I am still thankful for arts and crafts for I enjoy creating things.

Day 6 of 366: thankful for Canva

β€œDo you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.”

Proverbs 22:29

Creativity is a big part of my life and when I got involved in blogging, it became even bigger. I enjoy coming up with designs for banners and I tend to look for other creative ways I can use designs on the blog. That’s why I am happy with Canva. With so many templates to choose from, I am never bored.

The only downside at times is when a design is bright and beautiful only to have it look dull and lifeless when it’s downloaded. The GIF I made for this challenge (see above) is an example. It’s bright, colorful and beautiful on the site, but when I downloaded it, the logo was faded, so I had to change the color for the logo to be visibly brighter.Β

Nevertheless, I am thankful for Canva. I do use a few other platforms, but Canva remains undisputed for me.
