Creativity is God’s gift to us.  Using our creativity is our gift back to God.

About The Hermit Creative

Hi, my name is Kirsten and I am an introverted creative.   My friends would tell you that I am a wee bit of a hermit – hence the blog name.  Especially, when I get involved with a creative project.  I am happy as can be just sitting in my room creating on my iPad or painting with Watercolors.

I am an art class junkie who can’t get enough of SkillShare, Udemy, and Domestika. I am primarly a digital artist using Procreate, Photoshop, and my iPad. But I am currently venturing into traditional watercolors and acrylics.

I also love to write poetry (NaPoWriMo is just around the corner) flash fiction, and short stories.  My mind is a constant whirlwind of creative of energy.  I have decided to see that as a blessing.

I am also the Creative Director of Healing Thoughts Online.  An online blog that uses multimedia to show people Jesus’ healing power at work in our world today.  Visit Healing Thoughts

Welcome to my little corner of the web.  I hope you enjoy my collection of creative hodgepodge.  Read more

Today's prompt comes from dVerse. Here are the rules for the Prosery Prompt: Write a story of 144 words or less (not including the title). The story must have a beginning and an end, and should not be poetry. Sounds easy enough right? Here’s the twist: You must use...
