Getting Creative!

Ok how dang sweet is the Lord to give us minds, eyes, hands, and thought processes to create?! I just think He is the coolest for giving us the ability to think, process, critique, and invent.

The word create is ALL over Genesis just for starters. God created the Earth, oceans, animals, plants, insects, time, weather, the heavens, and the people (Gen 1:1-2:3). I really dig about this characteristic of the Lord; it is so amazing that He invents, uniquely designs, and thinks critically.

God is the epitome of creative and since we are made in His image I'm beyond giddy to see that trait pouring out into us, His people. We can create songs, delicious food, beautiful paintings, arrange furniture to look nice, sew/knit/crochet, build things with power tools, and the list goes on and on! And the best part is it all reflects the heart of our Creator and shows off who He is!

So here is what I am creating lately: a home-sewn water bottle holder out of vibrant fabric brought home from Africa, a new mantel, and a swanky new home office!

{New birthday present!}

{First ever homemade project--a water bottle holder! Sorry for the wonky picture}

{Random new fireplace mantel to spruce things up}

{Before Office Picture = Mess, junk, disorganization}

{After Office Picture = Clean, organized, classy!}

Oh and look at what Husband has been up to!  He is getting all creative too and making bike racks.  Seriously, our garage is SO organized.  It's the best looking garage I know.

 {Ryan and his manly tools}

 {The beginning phases of his bike racks!  They are even cooler now}

{Measuring, balancing, cutting.  What a stud.}

    Ryan and Ty could compare garages to see who has the most organized manly!
