Motivate Me Monday- Bloom Where You are Planted!

Fifth Street Palace
Today I am going to do something a little different. I am going to share an interview with one of the most inspirational families I know. They are not famous, or rich, they are regular (except God made them special)folk using their gifts to bring joy to their neighborhood.

So without further ado let me introduce you to
Derek (the dad) Rye (the mom), and Haye.

Tell me about what you are doing to beautify your neighborhood:
We paint pictures and words on cardboard with acrylic paint and zip tie it to fences in the hopes that it will make someone smile or that people will take the art and give it a home.

Who is involved with your project?
Anybody who wants to be! Pretty much every person that comes to our house. If you check out the blog you can see that our friends have been contributing. We hope that people start doing similar things in their own towns.

Why did you start the Free Art Project?
It started as a fun family activity and then when people started taking the art we got inspired.

Any inspirational words for my readers?
Our town and this particular fence is not the only place where this project can take place! People have asked if they can send us art to hang on the fence and we have responded by asking them to put art up in their own neighbourhoods and send us photos. Actually, friends have even said they will have to make art and bring it to "the fence"...but it's not just this fence. We are still eagerly waiting to get photos for our blog from other people around the world.
