So, today I decided once again to try this blogging thing.
See, I’m hoping to make more space in my life to create things. It makes me happy. But not just any things. I like making things out of material I or someone else already has. Sure, I’m cheap. But I also don’t want to create more of a demand for production, when the things I need are already out there!
I always thought I wasn’t creative, because my drawings were pretty bad. I was brilliant at the stick figure sitting alone on a deserted island…and that’s where the skill ends. But I’m realizing that I just like to create things, and that I don’t have to be a drawer to do it!
I also want to get to the point where I see something I like, and I say to myself, “I can make that.” And mean it. And I want any future children I have to grow up with that mentality too- we don’t have to buy it all. We can make it ourselves using the material we want.
And now here we are: my personal accountability blog to actually do what I say I enjoy, and also an opportunity to share with you my creations.
On here, I hope to post:
1. Craft projects- knitting, gifts, and my attempts at trying out new skills
2. Food we make- we’re working to eat healthier (and I’m trying to eliminate food that makes me sick). So most of the recipes here will not include: Soy, wheat, dairy, eggs, or sugar. What’s left? Well, that’s a brilliant question, my friend!
3. Other creative endeavors as I see fit- Music I’ve arranged, a dance I choreographed, or other interesting things.
So, I hope you enjoy my creative outlet! And PLEASE- give feedback, tell me what you want more of, what’s just plain uninteresting or feels like I’m just showing off what I can do…if you’re going to read it, you should have a say in what goes on it!
