Let’s Get Started

Lately I’ve been feeling the need to blog about my more creative side, and those ideas just seemed to need a blog of their own, so here I am starting a new blog, even though I’ve had a hard time keeping up with my old one.  Let’s see if we can do better with this one!

Perhaps you’re wondering “who is this woman?”  I am a stay-at-home mom with two lovely children (a girl and a boy).  They’re funny and interesting, and I am so glad to be their mom.  I also love reading, writing, painting, sewing, and crafting.  While I love food, I find cooking more of a challenge than not, but sometimes I do manage to create something wonderful.

As a stay-at-home mom, I tend to get urges to do something more with my mind–that’s where blogging and art come in. My creative attempts have been successful at times and not so much at others (whose haven’t?), but I do like to keep trying until I get it right.  Because of my “Mommy” duties, I don’t have as much time to devote to these endeavors as I would like, but that’s life, right?

For this particular blog, I intend to share creative ideas of my own as well as those ideas of others that have inspired me (complete with links, where appropriate) and the results of my take on those ideas.  In the rare cases where recipes of my own making actually work out, I will definitely share those.

I hope you enjoy following my creative journey.  Please feel free to put in your own two cents (or more).  I’m always open to new ideas and improvements on old ones!
