the creative initiative #4.

Today's Creative Initiative post is a little more basic than last week's, as I found it really difficult to capture the theme of GRATITUDE in a drawing or painting. Instead I took this snapshot last night of my little life, and wanted to take a few minutes to explain what I'm thankful for:

• the love of my life, Doug, and the fact that I get to see him pretty much all day, every day.
• the fact that we have a roof over our heads (even if said roof is slightly damp)
• all my colourful & sentimental belongings that I am very lucky to own.
• the talent that Doug and I share - his music, my visual malarky.
• the gifts & opportunities I've gained through working hard on Being Little.
• (not pictured, but goes without saying really) my family and my friends.

  1. Often a photograph just sums up everything better than anything else. The photograph is very raw and I can tell by your words how much you adore your life, lovely to hear!

  2. This photo reminds me of my old room when I was still a student. Love the atmosphere!

  3. Great photo x

  4. Is this your room? It is so cool! I wish I had a bunch of things like that... I should start collecting. :)

    It is so warm and cozy!

  5. Why did you lie and say that Doug is the love of your life?!

    Starting to think that I'm the only one who takes our relationship seriously!!

  6. I found this weeks theme really hard as well and I'm still finishing my drawing for it, but I love this little snapshot - there's a lot of 'who you are' in this photo even though you're not actually in it if that makes any sense :P. and I love attic rooms - they can be a pain in the neck for arranging furniture, but they're always so cosy. x

  7. A lovely photo- it does perfectly encapsulate how grateful I feel for my partner too.

  8. A perfect photo that captures your list exactly!
