Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
A few weeks ago I signed up as an Independent Consultant for Epicure.
Epicure is a "...a community that unites and inspires each other to rally around healthy eating. Epicure is dedicated to sharing delicious meal solutions that use only real, whole ingredients you can trust, while never ever compromising on taste. Epicure educates and inspires their community with a three-course solution—for ourselves, our children, and our planet. Our mission is to take back our health and change the course of our next generation's wellness and relationship with food." To learn more, click here!
But today's blog is not about Epicure, it's about being creative, so let's keep moving.
Epicure is a company dedicated to helping families create meals "raw to ready in 20 minutes or less". They have a "Never Ever" List - some of the things on this list: No Gluten, No Peanut, No Nut, No High Fructose Syrup and many others. Their company is based on home parties and sharing, teaching, and connecting with others..
Currently COVID is keeping us at home and doing virtual cooking classes BUT I'm hopeful to do home parties in the future. Once I take my cooking classes on the road and into the home of others, I wanted something to transport my cutting boards to prevent them from getting damaged or scratched. As I stared at them I had an idea, off to the sewing room I went.
My goal was to do an eggplant or at least a purple but couldn't find one but I had this scrap left from curtains I made in our front room, fabric my mom and I picked out years ago. The batting is left over from a t-shirt quilt I made my Auntie using her Relay for Life t-shirts, and the flannel on the inside is scraps from jammies I made my daughter when she was a toddler. Without realizing it at the time, I not only created a padded slip cover for my Epicure cutting boards and cutting sheets...I created a visual remembrance of some of the most influential women in my life.
I love the way God works. I set out to create a quick clip cover and ended up creating a generational remembrance. Have you ever started to create something with one intention but when you finish you realize it has a deeper meaning and purpose than you initially planned? I like these moments, they are God-stops. I hope you'll share yours with us in a comment here and if you share on Facebook, share a pic too. Share your creativity with the world. You are gifted and talented, let others know. If you feel brave, share the meaning behind the creation.
