Post inspired by the weekly photo challenge “Depth” and the Capture Your 365 prompt “Commitment” – I’m inspired to continue to follow my photography and craft teaching dreams through those open doors ❤

I often find beauty in unexpected places. I captured this photo at my church, in a side area, leading to a back garden area. It’s amazing what you can find around you when your heart finds bliss, your mind is clear, and you have the serenity of a quiet church!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! Make sure not to miss any future posts by signing up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list here! You’ll get a great little freebie download as my thank you!

Doors will be Opened… {Photo Challenge}

This photo has been one of my favorites since I shot it a few months ago at my church {it really is one of the most beautiful places that I adore photographing!} And it just so happens that several of my favorite photo blogs had challenges or themes that lent themselves nicely to this image!

It started with The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus. Door knob in focus, shallow depth of field on the background, okay, focus, check. Then I noticed Ese’s Voice recently started Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Open is the theme for the week. So, perfect, the door opening to the garden view. Another check. Awesome – two birds with one stone, right? Oh, it gets better….

I’ve been feeling/hearing a lot of knocking on my creative door lately {“hello, opportunity! Nice to see you again!”} so the quote above (“Doors will be opened to those who are bold enough to knock” by Tony Gaskins) felt just right, which played in nicely with Ese’s Quote challenge as well. Bonus checkmark!

Finally, I was at the gym this morning and was catching up on podcasts and emails when I saw two beautiful textures from Kim Klassen’s Cafe for this week’s Texture Tuesday. How could I resist playing with those?! I added both textures from the “August Endings” collection, and added “Unleashed” from a previous Kim Klassen collection, too. Thanks Kim! And hooray, another check!

So, I’ve said it before, but it really does feel like destiny when so many bits and pieces come together so nicely! What do you think? Does it all work together? As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!
