happiest...


It is the last day of June, rolling right into July with a smile on this face of mine and hope you are smiling too today!  Been working on a dream binder/scrapbook for a class I decided to take through Brave Girls Club, thought why not.  Maybe it is a need to hear some inspirational words, layout all my hopes and dreams in one place or feel a sense of comfort knowing that I am not alone when the skies are a bit grey.  So far it has given me time to myself and think about what people, places, behaviors, outlooks I want to take with me into the future (sounds like I am going on a trip).  One thing is for sure...I enjoy creating with my family and friends nearby to share in our journey.


There is something so amazing about the ability to create anything you can dream up.  After taking a year away from my craft space I spent my days building up a functioning garden, trying new recipes in the kitchen, running outdoors and learning as a family how to make our home more eco-friendly.  Through all of those activities I have learned that I have a need to create, learn and share no matter what the subject.  As long as my hands keep busy.  So that brings me to re-opening my shop.  Creating a few pieces that take the materials I love and putting them into something that I can look back on and say that was all of me.  Not forced or reproduced, but just the way I felt at that moment.  That is the way art should feel and how to keep our hearts happy.

  7. What I like to create most of all would be cards. Any kind of card but I prefer the recipient to be female. The possibilities are endless: flowers, lace, and glitter, of course.
