CREATIVE TUESDAYS—WHEN DO YOU FEEL MOST LOVED?

CREATIVE TUESDAYS—WHEN DO YOU FEEL MOST LOVED?

Love is in the air.

Can you feel it?

Okay, so love doesn’t float through the air, but being loved makes me feel like I’m floating.

Before I float on into today’s theme for Creative Tuesdays, here’s a quiz that I tweaked slightly, based on The 5 Love Languages®, written by Gary Chapman.

Do you feel MOST loved when:

(a) someone goes out of their way to do something nice for you?
(b) someone takes the time to give you a gift they’ve put a lot of thought into?
(c) someone gives you their undivided attention?
(d) someone gives you a much-needed (bear) hug? or
(e) someone sends you a hand-written, greeting card?

 

If you had to choose just ONE, which would it be?

#My first choice would be (e)—I feel MOST loved when someone sends me a hand-written, greeting card.

I suppose that’s why I love creating and receiving greeting cards. 🙂

This love language is called, “Words of Affirmation”.

Gary Chapman states,

“This language uses words to affirm other people.”

My sister, a missionary in Tokyo, sent me a beautiful card with these words of affirmation:

“Praying for you, and may all your dreams come true in 2016! I can’t say thank you enough for supporting us in so many ways.”

My sister wrote more, but those two lines made me float on air. Thanks, Sis. 🙂

Have you figured out what today’s theme is?

Yes…LOVE.

Our host, Mr. Toast, actually provided three creative prompts for this theme:

  • love is in the air,
  • home is where the heart is, and
  • love will guide you home, (we also had to include a floating heart).

Mr. Toast promised this challenge would be fairly simple.

I thought it would be fairly simple too.

Not so.

My creative mind churned, of course, making my brain need or want to incorporate all of the above.

I did finish the illustration, but ran out of time to “color-it-up”. That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it.

Speaking of love, Matilda, my bossy marketing maven, has an announcement. She promises to behave.

Hello, People!

It’s me, Matilda.

MEET MATILDA - MY MUSE

I’ll try to be polite. Hee hee.

I’m unveiling Tracy’s new product line. And today, I’ll share just one piece from our collection.

I do like to make you people wait.

Behave, Matilda!

Tracy, give me a drum roll. Puh-leeze!

Never mind.

Ta-dah!


Tracy’s trendy necklace comes beautifully packaged in a cellophane bag. Perfect for Valentine’s Day. It’s a steal-of-a-deal at only $8.00 U.S. And there are only three left.

AND . . .

when you’re shopping, check out the greeting card that I know you’ll want to give to your “Somebunny” this Valentine’s Day—that fuzzy, love day that makes you want to float on air.

NOT!

Matilda!

I tried to behave. 

Get back in your mason jar. I’ll take it from here.

I do hope you’ll stop by my Whimsical Shop and check out my our stuff!

Sheesh!

Have a Happy Day,

 

Tracy & Matilda!

3 Practical Ways to Show Love

Tomorrow is love day. A fun day to show some fluffy love.

I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day, but I’m not turning down my hubby’s dinner invitation.

I don’t like receiving flowers unless my hubby finds a bargain. And we all know that does not happen on Valentine’s Day.

But for me, love is an action. Servant-heart-action. A few ways I act out, I mean, show my servant-heart-love is to:

  • Wash and fold my hubby’s clothes,
  • Make my hubby’s lunches for work, and
  • Make my hubby’s dinner.

That may not sound like servant-heart-love to you, but let me tell you that I AM showing servant-heart-love because I DO NOT like to cook.

My mom once presented me with a plaque that read, “The kitchen is closed. The queen does not cook”.

But in all seriousness, love in action is the most powerful kind of love I can show. And the quote below sums up love beautifully.

 “To love another person is to see the face of God.”
― Victor HugoLes Misérables

So I really hope my hubby sees the face of God in me, knowing I try my best to show my servant-heart-love in action.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Tracy
