I hope your Good Friday is BLOOMIN’! I am searchin’ out as many flowers and blooms as I can find. Doesn’t it feel amazing when winter is finally over? Right now we’re in that space between everything being spring green and everything still being brown. There are green shoots coming out and the nurseries are shipping in their flowers but gardens are just not bloomin’ yet! Anticipation is killing me!
I was thinking this week about today’s flat lay and was coming up with a big fat goose egg! Earlier this week we had those spring winds that sweep in outta no where and turn everything upside down. I happened to have the back door open when one of those blew through… literally. Papers went flying, paint tubes learned how to sail, art work started bouncing off the walls, *more so than normal*. It was wild. I have a monogram metal “M” on top of the kitchen cabinets and this lil typhoon style wind kicked it right off and onto the counter. It just happened to land on a vase of flowers on the counter and decided to do the tango with a bunch of carnations.
AND ta-da!!! Inspiration! Out of a messy, crazy, water spilled, flower disaster… a flat lay was born.
I kinda really love that “M”. For one it’s spots… ADORE spots… And of course it is the monogram of my last name. In case you haven’t noticed, my name is on the organic side. LOL! And hubs and I have the same initials. How cool is that?
The Bloomin’ Mess
What really struck me though, is outta this bloomin’ mess something was created. Pretty much like Spring. The Divine created “Spring” and basically told it… you’re gonna have to use intense force to get the winter season tucked back into bed! We don’t really think about it much. It’s like the entire earth gives birth at once… well… on this side of the hemisphere right now. And if you’ve ever given birth-YEAH! You know the intense force that is!
Creativity can happen the same way. An idea or inspiration sneaks up on you. You ponder it a bit. Maybe try to talk yourself out of it. Then BAM! You’re in the middle of rippin out a wall! Hubs walks in in bewilderment, shakes his head and grabs a crow bar to help… ~Oh, wait, maybe that’s just me. But you get the idea!
When creativity strikes just go with it. Seriously. It’s a gift of force from the Divine. It’s one of the most powerful experiences you will EVER have. Even if it makes a huge mess, a crazy disaster can bring the most beautiful creations!
