Creative Snapshot | Sorting Wool

Do you follow Amanda Blake Soule’s blog, SouleMama? Her blog is one of the first I ever laid eyes on. I’ll save that story for another time (it’s a good one), but I mention Amanda’s blog today because she has a cool weekly (every Friday) ritual called This Moment. For these posts, she shares one photo (usually no words) that captures something special about her week. It’s lovely.

About a year ago, my friend Elizabeth suggested, in the nicest, most diplomatic way possible, that I share more “quick posts.” Less talk and a fast something to say, “hey, I’m alive, and here’s what’s rocking my world.” She loves the blog Girl’s Gone Child, and suggested that I try writing some simple posts like this.

I haven’t really found the right way to do this, but today I’ll give it a quick try. With a hat tip to SouleMama, Girl’s Gone Child, and my friend Elizabeth, I’ll give this a go with a weekly Creative Snapshot of some creative happening or observation. If this seems like a total fail, you may never see me do this again, but man, with my busy life it’s a major relief to keep this short and sweet.
