Welcome to My Gentle Threads! It is a New Year and a time for New Creative Beginnings! This year I am entering my seventh year on my blog and I thank you for being here! I'm excited to share my creative walk with you in my sacred space. Life is all about the journey we walk each and every day. I love sharing my artistic moments, thoughts and adventures with you here! I wish you peace and light in your life!
and I am beginning a 30 day challenge today
so having fresh salads prepared for the week
was perfect timing for my journey.
We were asked to bring 4 Quart Ball jars,
a salad green of our choice
and one salad item to share with others.
Pam spoke of health and renewal,
how important it is to eat fresh foods,
and to have beautiful color on our plates
and to care for our bodies as we age.
So many choices
The table was filled with such beauty,
and we went round and round
creating our own salad designs,
I tried to make each salad creation a little different.
There was so much to choose from:
Fresh Quinoa, chick peas, cranberries, chia seeds,
rasberries, oranges, pumpkin seeds,
cabbage, tomatoes, peas, corn, carrots,
different olives, broccoli and more!!!
Salad ingredients everywhere!
The colors popped!
I created five wonderful salad jars,
there was laughter, fun, creativity and so much more.
I was able to connect with friends I hadn't seen in a long time,
of course we had to grab a photo!
Carol, Pam and me ... high school connections
What a fun and amazing way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Thank you Pam for your generosity, sweet spirit and for planning this event.
I know I will continue to create salad jars in the future!
My first salad creation
I guess Creativity isn't always about having
a paint brush in my hand!
Creating beautiful works of art with food is fun too!
Even better . . . it is taking care of my body and health!
They were starting to add up ... each one was different!
We were all pleased with our creations,
we went home with more than we brought for sure!
Tonight grilled chicken with one of my creations,
if you get the chance to attend one of these workshops,
I strongly urge you to join in the fun!
You will not be disappointed!
Showing off our creations
New Year, New Beginnings,
that word just keeps popping up in my life!
Take care of yourself,
make healthy choices,
eat fresh and colorful,
drink lots of water
and get as much sleep as you can!
I certainly am off to a great start
