I Made This!

I Made This JRS

Remember when you were a kid & shared your creations with delight?

Maybe you even got to stick your art on the fridge for the whole world to see!

Let’s bring that joyful “show and tell” feeling back with…

I Made This!

What is “I Made This!”?: Each Monday here in the studio, I’ll invite you to share what you’ve made over the week before. It can be anything – a flower arrangement, a crocheted cap, a painting, a poem, a party, an outfit, a cake! Show what you made and tell us a bit about what the experience was like for you. What inspired you? What did you learn? How were you challenged? What did you love? And hey, if you want to share the inspiration, the pattern, the recipe, the kinds of supplies you used, we’ll all be the richer for it!

To Participate: Create an “I Made This!” post on your blog and add the direct link* in the Mr. Linky below. Be a sunbeam of love as you visit other makers, celebrating their creativity and sharing inspiration along the way. It would be great if you could also link back here as an invitation to other creative hearts to jump in and share. I’ve got a badge for you if you’d like to add it to your blog.

And please know, whatever you made doesn’t have to be perfect or beautiful or even finished – though it might be. I just want us to share what we’re creating with our hearts and with our hands and to remember how much fun it can be to say, “I made this!”

Let’s make this something wonderful!

*PS A direct link is when you share the address for the actual post instead of just your blog (e.g. http://jamieridlerstudios.ca/introducting-i-made-this-monday instead of just http://jamieridlerstudios.ca)

    Just sharing a photo montage that I had put together over the past few weeks for my late wife’s Celebration of Life gathering that was held yesterday. Everyone complimented the selection of photographs (culled from iphones, ipads, cameras, computers and old photographs so I lot of “compiling”) and carefully selected by yours truly – me! A lot of tears shed as I put this together over the past few weeks.

      Hi there, John. Thank you so much for sharing this special creation. I’ve been trying to comment but for some reason have been unable to. Here’s what I was trying to say, “What a beautiful way to honour your wife, the life she lived and the life you shared. My heart is with you during this time. I’m so glad you had a lovely and loving event.”

    I’ve been looking at all your links and enjoying. This week my creative goals were to order some wall art from Shutterfly, dig out my material for a lap quilt and write. I’ve done two out of three. I haven’t gotten back to my book, but I journaled and blogged so I’m close as far as the writing is concerned. No big pics but I’m still mindful of this every Monday.
