Plant the seed. Watch it grow.
It finally happened. On May 6th, what was once a casual idea, became a reality.
I met a new friend, Lindsay, at my church a couple of years ago at an intentional discipleship book study.
The book talked about how we can lead others in our natural, God-given talents and ways, without being forceful and by the book and so dogmatic. I really took that too heart because for me, that’s how I was reignited back into my faith. How can we still spread the good news in our own ways? Come to know as we were taking that book study, Lindsay told me she was painter and I was a budding, aspiring letterer/calligrapher at the time. We both had our day job careers but we also had that side creative gig that fulfilled us. Oh, creative ones. I have always felt pulled towards making your mark in the world but in a subtle and unique way. It doesn’t have to be such a remarkable action where it saves the whole world. Like Mother Theresa said, “do small things with great love”. How can I put that into action?
So, from there the seed was planted…and thus sprouted: “Bloom” a Painting + Lettering Workshop by Lindsay of Beauty of Truth Designs and me over here at Chiara Marie Letters on May 6, 2017.
Read/view on for the good, mushy photos. We had such a fun and exciting time! Can’t wait to do it again in the fall.
