I've always been a creative person. It's something that I've always been proud of, and I make a considerable effort to encourage my daughter's creativity and give her plenty of opportunities. It makes me sad that modern society is taking emphasis away from creative endeavors in an effort to get everyone to conform to the standard ideal of "success." If being creative makes you happy, be creative! It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

I found this picture on Facebook and decided to share it with you all:

While we are on the subject of creativity, I have quite a few half-finished projects in the works, and even more ideas buzzing around in my head, so expect a flood of new posts coming very soon!

Until next time,

Happy (Belated) New Year!

Wow! So this last couple months have been crazy for me, and I have been neglecting the blog (sorry!), but I have a LOT of new projects and ideas in the works at the moment. Unfortunately, I have so many things going on at once it is hard to get any of them finished! (I'm sure at least some of you can relate)

A little snapshot of what is going on in my life right now:

  • Realizing that school is such a time suck! What happened to the days when I didn't have to study for hours on end to understand the material? BUT, I'm getting good grades, which is the important thing, right?
  • I just started working from home, which is a welcome change from all of the pointless, dead-end jobs I've been working my ENTIRE adult life. I will give you guys some more information about that later, but for now let's just say I'm very excited!!
  • I have sooo many friends that are expecting babies this year, so don't be surprised if I post a lot of baby-related projects in the coming months. (No, I'm not pregnant... yet)
  • I may not have been blogging, but I'm still very active on Pinterest, so make sure you follow me there to get all the inspiration you can handle!
  • Putting the wedding planning on hold for now. I'm still madly in love with my fiance but we decided to focus on other areas of our lives that need attention first (which is totally understandable). I'm just going with the flow and letting God show me when it is the right time to finally tie that knot. =]
NOW, here is where I need you, my followers, to give some input.
What kinds of projects/topics would you like to see me cover in the coming months?

This blog is built for you and around you, so any and all opinions are necessary! Post in the comments, or hit me up on Google+ (you can add me to your circles over in the sidebar).

Until next time,
