Creatives inspire me.
Gitz is a creative and she has inspired a whole world of beauty and wonder around her. She is a JOY-filled creative who has inspired a legacy of choosing joy despite her circumstances.
Saturday morning I had some much needed down-time, and time to reflect on this beautiful legacy that Gitz is leaving in my life… that of embracing creativity and celebrating joy. Tam and Alece had organized a community tat effort and enlisted the design expertise of Trevor and all this creativity and community inspired me to contribute.
As I sat down to unleash my creativity, I was surprised to discover that the more I created… the closer I felt to my friend Gitz
…and the more I felt like I was helping carry on her legacy. It also helped me grieve in some small way… and then enabled me to CHOOSE JOY again.
The designs below are my contribution to the community ink effort over at Tam and Alece‘s sites… some inspired by Trevor – just with a splash of color to add some sassiness! They are to remember and celebrate the legacy Gitz is leaving of “Choosing Joy.” The handwriting is all hers. The creative inspiration I must thank Gitz and the community for.
Each design is downloadable via the link below it and my prayer is that it blesses those of us who are celebrating Gitz’s legacy …
These can be used for inking yourself (if you decide to ink yourself – go link up with Tam here), or a badge on your site, a reminder on your computer, a sticker on your car dashboard, or a morning greeting on your bathroom mirror…the important thing is that we each – who love Gitz – find a way to remember her in creative ways…
