Letters to My Daughters | My Creative Girlies

One of the many projects I’m working on this year is something called Letters to my Daughters. At least once a month I will write a letter to one or more of my awesome girls chronicling something awesome they’ve done, mommy gushing over them, imparting some random bit of wisdom, or just because.  At the end of the year, I plan to make them a book of these letters…a keepsake and photo journal of their childhood.

I’ve joined a blog circle of other fantastic, talented mothers also writing Letters to their daughters.  I look forward to reading their letters and seeing their beautiful children.  This month I’m linking to Laura Mood | Everyday Blessings Photography .  Please take a moment to read her words to her beautiful daughter.

Dear Girlies,

Earlier this week we sat down and made letterboxes for school Valentines.  As always, I enjoyed watching your creativity with the materials you were given, and seeing the final products that reflect your personality and vision.  You have been blessed with creativity and the abilities needed to take your creative ideas and bring them to life.  Use these blessings often, and use them to better yourself and your world! Don’t ever stop being imaginative, and don’t ever stop creating – even when it seems pointless, or you think it’s terrible, or you think no one likes it.  Just keep writing, or drawing, or painting, or singing, or dancing, or however you feel like creating. Have fun with your art, express yourself through it, and enjoy it.  CREATE FOR YOURSELF, and let your personality shine through in your work!

And little miss E, you’ve got the world ahead of you!  You’re creative, too…you love to dance and draw.  I’m looking forward to watching you discover and develop your talents!
