This blog is a result of the spark my Aunt Martha ignited in me to CREATE! She said, "you must create is a gift and it would be a shame to waste it". "Two hours a day" she said...I balked. Does creating supper count? Stacks of brightly colored folded laundry? Nope. Trust me, I would LOVE to have two hours a day to create, and some days I have the time to, but mostly I find it hard to have two hours. However, I am committed to not waste the gift and the projects you see here are the product of my unleashed passion.

Busy week!

What a wonderfully busy week! Tuesday was homeschool co-op day, which was FULL and then we went to surprise Christa Joy for her birthday on Wednesday morning.

Tuesday night I made Christa Joy's birthday present, a clipboard:

I need to make another one today (Melanie!) and I am planning to start selling these on ETSY in the next couple of weeks, along with some other ideas I have!

I have been knitting and dreaming and those things should surface for your viewing over the next few days.

For some reason, Ward thought it was absolutely hilarious that I said my "creative door has been opened." He has teased me mercilessly about it ever since...hmph!

Tonight we take pictures during the church's annual Valentine's Dinner.

Sunday, sweet the first day of the glass beadmaking and sculpture class I am taking at the Folk School!!!! YAY!


  1. I can't wait to see what's inside that creative door!

    Knitting, huh? Did I inspire you.... lol

    Love ya!

  2. I'm dreaming of all those colors you will get to play with this week. I am so jealous, but so glad you are doing this. Lots of love...
