An unexpected blog post.
Sally Russick sent us the phrase "Giving Thanks" as a photo prompt for this week's Focus on Life series,
As others have stated before, it's been a great experience participating in this photo blog experiment. And sometimes, it brings out things you would not have expected.
When pondering "Giving Thanks" I first decided to go with something traditional like my family, or more specifically my husband's health, which had been in question at this time last year. He is feeling fine now, and for that we are all very thankful.
But I have recently featured him in this blog, and he might not have wanted another picture illustrating some "random" concept so soon.
Like many people, I am thankful for so many things.... health, family, my career, living in a free country, the beautiful country side, loving pets, a house that manages to still be standing after about a hundred years or so, many many things.
So I decided to feature my sketch book. I have never kept a sketch book before, and I have been adding to this one at least once a week since the end of July. I have always been interested in art, I design jewelry, I do other crafts, and for most of my life I have thought that I could draw, but badly. So I decided that I could only improve by giving myself permission to try. I am so thankful I decided to do that. I am finding this an enjoyable journey.
