I like to believe that I am a creative soul. I love the fact that you can be creative and it matters not what medium you use. What gives you joy, inspires you, makes you reach deep inside yourself and pull out a talent you didn’t even know you had. You don’t have to be a master at one thing to be creative. I use my creativity to draw, sew and write. I try to cook. Try being the key word there. I’m good at following a recipe, but not so great at experimenting, although I am getting better at it.
Now quilting is usually the opposite. I’ll start off following a pattern and end up changing it up a bit, truly making it my own.
Drawing is something fairly new to me. I’ve always doodle but now it is done purposefully using my iPad and an app called Procreate. I love digital art! Mistakes are much more forgiving.
When it comes to writing, I have many ideas floating around that usually don’t make it. I’ve tried writing a novel but usually lose the desire half-way into the third chapter. Short stories work great for me. One chapter and I’m done! However – I have set a goal this year to take writing more seriously and focus on writing that book.
Mostly I love just spending time with my husband, our 100lb puppy Hershey, and the all-too-infrequent visits with our girls.
I’m glad you found my little corner of the world. This blog is mainly for me but am happy when someone happens upon it, so welcome!
If you find my writing enjoyable, please let me know. I’d love to hear from you!
