I love being creative! Whether it's making a card, creating a scrapbook page, wrapping a gift, organizing a room, or designing a photo card, I enjoy the process! I am a perfectionist by nature. It's something that has always been with me since I was born. Most of the time being a perfectionist is a good thing because I enjoy creating something that is completed to the best of my ability and skill, and in turn LOVING the end product. But sometimes being a perfectionist is not a good thing, particularly when way too much extra time, sweat, and tears are spent into trying to complete the project to the best of my ability and skill...and well, to make it perfect (right now I'm having flashbacks of late nights in college and my teaching days). It makes me feel good to create something for somebody (but also for myself).

God has blessed me with the gift of creativity. I want to share that blessing with others. However, I don't dare claim that I am gifted in all areas of creativity. I don't know how to sew, knit, quilt, or crochet. I don't plan on learning anytime soon. I will choose to stick to the things I know and let others (like my talented seamstress mother) enjoy the pleasures of the fabric and yarn world. If there's every anything I need sewn, my mom is the first person I call. My poor husband...I even claim that I can't sew on a button (well, maybe that's more of an excuse).

I hope you can be inspired by some of the things I have created in the past, present, and hopefully many things to come in the future. I've had a lot of visions for starting my own business in many ways (which you will soon read about), but right now, with 2 kids under 3 years, I can't go as deep into these visions as I would like to, but my hope is that one day I will!
