Challenge #10 is now up at Dirty Scraps and we are finding our inner peace with this one. You are being asked to create a LO based on Serenity. The one place you go to that you find YOUR sense of Serenity. Whether it be your scraproom, your big comfy bed at the end of a long stressful day, or your Mother's kitchen table talking over a glass of hot cocoa. Just scrap it and why it makes you feel serene.
My Serenity is my Mommy Chair. I took a picture of my chair and then added it to a picture of a field of flowers. When I was growing up I remember being happiest playing in fields of wild flowers in our backyard. The combination of my chair and flowers puts me at peace, as this is how I feel when I am sitting in my chair. Journaling:
Mom’s Chair. A very Special chair. One might look at it and see just a simple piece of furniture, but to me it is so much more. I look at this chair and I see happiness. Happiness from the past, present, and future. I see all 3 of my children late at night snuggled up to me as I rock them to sleep, as I sing them silly songs that only a mother can sing. I see me reading ‘The Cat in the Hat’ just one more time, over and over. This chair has had another life other than the one my family has given it. It was handed down to me by my dear cousin Jenny, who used it to rock her own 2 babies to sleep. This rocking chair is history, it is love. Once a light oak color, but sanded and refinished by my husbands own two hands just to make me happy. Now that my babies are older this chair sits perfectly placed on my front porch. I sit in it and watch my children play. I sit in it late at night, enjoying the fresh air while having endless talks with my husband about anything and everything ever imaginable. This chair to me is so important. It’s the one place where I can go and everything else fades away and all I see is a state of calm. It’s my serenity. My peace. My happiness. My memories all combined into a piece of wood. A very important, always loving, piece of beautiful rocking chair wood.
