Back To The Drawing Board

I used to love to draw. I drew portraits, caricatures, and I can't hold a pen or pencil without doodling. I used to love to draw family members or sketch a muscular guy. I was really into it once upon a time. Over the last few years I gotten away from it. Just busy. And my eyes are not very good. But lately I've been determined to get back into it. I am not good enough to ever be professional. It's just for fun. But it's a great way to relieve stress and express creativity. I don't think I will ever let it go again. I feel like I was missing a part of myself for a long time.

So, what do you do that lets you express your creative side? Of course, I also write, and I act when I get the chance. I want writing to be my career. Drawing is a hobby. A fun one. If you don't currently do anything creative, I encourage to find something that calls to you...poetry, song lyrics, art...whatever. Just find your voice and let the world hear you.


  1. I like this, Lisa! I think we moms get so busy with the demands of every day life, that we sometimes lose our "voice". Sometimes it's lost for months, sometimes years. God has been dealing with me since the first of this year about reclaiming my voice. The neat thing is, the more I work toward this, the more I find that he's given me even more outlets of creativity that I didn't even know existed. Yeah, God's just good like that!;-)

  2. It's very good. I can only draw stick figures and those aren't even that good. I do believe in expressing yourself. I am not a mom but I do understand that life can very stressful sometimes and we all need to vent. I re-kindled my love for reading and made myself sit and write. It's very freeing. Great drawing...
