I started this journey with a vision of creativity. My goal was to inspire and encourage others, while sharing some of my creations along the way. Art is such a personal journey and once you begin it’s hard to stop. Creativity is in all of us and I have been super inspired by others around me who are busy creating their own artwork. Whether it is Cricut projects or scrapbook pages or a new scrapbook layout, when I see their creations I am super inspired!
Creativity is an outlet for me, along with writing. I like to document life, but most of all I love to record the stories that are happening all around me. It’s our stories that matter most and we are the only ones who can tell them.
Memories are a funny thing. We tend to have selective memories that are connected to highly emotional experiences, but what about the little details in between? Those usually get forgotten. Those are the memories I want to record and remember. That is why I blog, to express those moments and memories in a creative way, and hopefully to inspire others along the way!
I’ve been so busy outside lately and haven’t had the time to write or scrapbook. Then I finally took the time to make some Cricut projects and my fire was ignited again! Without creativity I felt empty. It gives me purpose and helps me to slow my life down and reflect. I think we all need something in our lives to remind us to stop and smell the roses. As I’ve mentioned before, it helps me cherish the moments.
I think this connection is so strong because we are made by a Creator in His image. So being creative, and making creations emulates who God is, since He created the heavens and the earth. I know not everyone shares this belief. But this is truth. There are so many unexplained phenomenons out there that point to a Creator. I won’t get into it, but this is why I believe we are created to create. Something ignites a fire in our mind, body and soul when we create something beautiful. From a beautiful flower garden, to painting, making a scrapbook page or a beautiful meal. We don’t have to share the same beliefs to create, and we can all benefit from a little creativity in our lives! There are so many ways to be creative, I encourage you to find out what your creative outlet is!
My blog showcases some of the things I love to do inspired by my children who spurred me on to engage in creativity again for which I am so thankful for! They are my Wild Little Loves and most of all, they are the ones who remind me daily to stop and cherish the little things in each moment, and to create new memories together!
We are Created to Create.
