Just Getting Started

I do not claim to be extraordinary nor extraordinarily creative. This is why I have decided to start this blog. I have found in my own life, there has become a trade of self for selflessness. This selflessness as a result of a growing family, at present a husband and 3 children under the age of five. Whom of course, I love dearly and would not trade for the world.

I am blessed to be able to be a stay-at-home Mom and am busy with the details of my life and those around me. In the absence of the time I used to have for myself, I have grown to feel ordinary. As a result, I have turned to creativity to give myself a boost. A sense of accomplishment, a project, a something that has made me feel better and back to myself.

This little creative boost can be anything from arranging flowers or making a meal to designing a costume or even taking a trip outside the norm. Something to feel good about and something to shake out the cobwebs. If I need a little creative inspiration, I find going to a favorite or new shop or even better, a favorite or new place can get me into the happy head-space I need to be. And at the same time…taking time to do nothing is just as rewarding. I always have found that in every action or thought process, there is something to be gained.

Take the time, whatever it is to just “be” for you. Maybe you have noticed a new look you would like to try or something beautiful you would like to create for your home. Take a minute, decide how to accomplish this and GO! I guarantee you will feel great!
