Covenant /ˈkəvənənt/ (noun) : A promise. An agreement. A commitment.
Back in June I was inspired by the concept of “covenant based caregiving” and thought that creating an altered book to honor my values & beliefs & explore my interest in this topic would be a creative, interesting endeavor for this fall.
What are your promises to yourself that you can make about living, working, loving, being, becoming, believing, promoting, striving, and seeking that support covenant caregiving vs. “on demand” caregiving?
I’ve started to brainstorm my list of promises (and then fancied it up with Recite) to get the creative process going:
I’ve been saving a small children’s board book to alter for this very project. I have started to strip away the glossy, coated pages and paint backgrounds of color on the raw surface underneath with acrylic paint. It’s the same process I love doing for my ready for revo’lution books every year– I find it so freeing and liberating to prepare the spaces for my altered books in this way. Removing and clearing out the old, to set the stage for something new.
I hope to share my progress here on how things are developing with this new project! I am excited to finally begin…. 🙂
