Hey Creative Friends~
Today I share with you a special spread from my art journal. This was created about 2 years ago when my precious pooch of almost 20 years, Harvey, passed away. Harvey was a true gift from God and he taught Christopher & I so many things about patience, unconditional love & more that it certainly was a hard time of grieving after he passed away.
During the grieving period it was so encouraging to get little notes, texts or emails from family & friends who had the chance to meet Harvey. It was so heart-warming to hear how Harvey touched their lives.
I wanted a way to gather and reflect upon all the kind words that people shared so I created this spread...
A cute pic of Harvey doing one of his favorite things; napping!
I hand wrote the words that friends & family shared about Harvey into each heart. This process was so therapeutic and precious to me. It turns out it was such a special way for me to reflect upon, thank God for & commemorate Harvey. No artistic perfection here; just a true work of heART.
In fact, it was such a therapeutic process for me that I created a playsheet based on this to share with others who have lost a loved one and need a tool to help them process and gather their thoughts & memories. I've shared it with quite a few people recently who have lost a precious loved one or pet.
There's been so many posts from friends on facebook lately about losing a precious family member or furry friend that I wanted to share the playsheet so that it might help others through the grieving process just as it did for me.
The files are below. Feel free to download and share.
If you are going through the grieving process, I send you LOVE. As followers of Jesus we know He comes to heal the brokenhearted. May He cover you in His peace as you go through this hard time. Let yourself cry as much as you need to.
Blogglings are quick bites of creativity, inspiration & information You know, like a little duck is called a duckling - a little blog is called a bloggling! :)
Hi! How do we reacquaint after this long blog pause? I know! We jump right back into this creative jamboree!
Well, that should be about it for this time. I've got a whole bunch more stuff I want to share but I'm on the 20 year plan so no hurry ;)!
*Note to self: I'm writing this bloggling well aware that very likely no-one may read it but I'm using it as a way to organize my creative & inspirational spurts, a way to hold myself accountable and a way to learn & grow. I foresee as I do this, this will (hopeFULLy) morph into something that will end up creatively inspiring others.
