my love of creating and a giveaway.

I think I could do multiple posts for this love that I have (my husband might call it a disorder). I have never known myself NOT as an artist. There were times that I certainly got discouraged (being rejected by BYU's art program a few times). Even when I changed my major from Art to Psychology, little did I know less than a semester later, we would be switching back! I have always had a love for art and for the process of creating something from something else that is seemingly nothing. I have dreams about things I will create. I look at something and think of another way I could recreate it or make it from something I have laying around. I have dreams that my creations will reach far and wide, someday. Today I am grateful for my hands, my right-sided brain, my patience and the way that these things work together to help me create what my mind already sees. There are not many things that make me as happy as seeing my final creation (as long as it works out like I want it too!):) So to celebrate my love of creating, I want to create something for 2 of you! Leave a comment if you want to be in the running..I will pick the winners randomly.
Now come and go through new and old memory lane with me!

I loved that trot down memory lane. Especially since I knew about most of them. I love that you included your patience playing into your creations because that is really true and really is a gift. I will NEVER understand how you find the time for it all though! You amaze me. Okay this is funny, my word verification for this comment is "greede." Yes, there is greed. I want a Kiki creation.

Jansen said...

More greed.

Natalie said...

This is kinda funny, and for real.
I have been thinking about you the past couple of days, when my girls today told me to come and look at Kiki's awesome creations. So, I am not leaving a comment trying to get a freebee off of you. I just am so blown away by all those creations you have made. They are not amature stuff, they are professional, and double that.
They are so dang neat that I bet it is making all of us who look at them turn green in envy. So not fair, God gave you many talents.
Your amazing talent and creativity, awesome personality(if I name each of them, this comment will never end), your skill as a wonderful mother, ability to be the cutiest wife and a great friend. Hummm, maybe I should have split this comment in four (jessica, you are smart) so that I could have increased my chance of winning an art by Kiki. If I get one, I will make a shrine around it!! (So, needless to say, I change my mind, I want to win one real bad!!)
