Deck of Me- Week 9: What Inspires Me

I find that I am always inspired by beauty. I love walking into a beautiful home, spending time with a friend with a beautiful soul, or being out in nature. I feel inspired to be a better person and feel happy.

Today while my girls were in school I tried something new... I went to the beach and brought this card and my paints to put some color on this design I drew the night before. It was such a wonderful moment. I sat on some rocks and put my feet in the sand while the sun was warm with a little breeze. I watched the waves and then began painting. The greenish-blue in my design is the color of the ocean today. I was so content that I couldn't help but sing and smile goofy the whole time I painted. It was a glorious moment that I'm determined to do more often.

So anyway this is what I was inspired to make, a pretty little design that feels calm and makes me happy and represents being inspired.

This card is so cool! I miss California so much! And I envy that you can just go to the beach, put your piggies in the sand and paint. That sounds WONDERFUL. :)
