Big Picture Classes:Permission to live a Creative Life (Courtney Walsh)

Good morning.  I have some terrible handwriting.  This page two of the class project where our instructor asks us to write a letter about any guilt we may be feeling about taking time and space to create.  I could really relate
to this over the summer I really had to work to find  a moment where I could be creative.   School started for us to day so I don't feel like I am depriving my kids of quality time.     Here's what I wrote:I use to feel guilty about being creative I didn't feel like I should make anything unless someone else approved it or it was a gift for someone else(I.E a card or decoupage box etc)   It's taken  awhile ,but I am coming into the realization
that I have to nuture this part of me in order to be a whole, happy mommy and I may never get approval
so I feel better about creating.
This is a self paced course atBig Picture Classes besides the fact that it's just $10  I don't seemto do so well
with a scheduled time.  I like to volunteer with different minstries at church ,I am in a play   and besides getting
the kids ready for school I am taking a 8 wee course in October so I will have to make this adaptable to my
life right now.   The Big Idea Workshop is s till going I really liked Amy Sorenson's word and her blog.  I'll be
back I am still working on my mini album

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from. I am very pleased with vegetarian main dishes.We are not vegetarian or vegan just a busy Mama/college student trying to get my growing kids to eat more vegetables. I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
