welcome to a little creative everyday

welcome! if you have made your way here via my shameless self-promotion of this new venue, thank you. and, if i was brave enough to let you know about this blog, that means you are someone in my life who has a true understanding how important creativity is in my life. it's not only ingrained in what i do professionally, but in many ways, creativity has had a huge impact in my life since i was a little girl.

i've been contemplating starting a blog for a while now, all based on the topic of creativity. i've been sharing some of the creative projects i've done through my facebook page and have received some good comments. but the more i thought about it, creativity to me is more than just showing some pictures of crafts i've done. it's a passion. to me, having the chance to be creative feeds me.

reflecting back, i've been told by my mother since i was small that i "have my grandmother's sense of creativity." (which is one of the greatest compliments i could be given) i didn't think about it much then, but as a little girl, i started cross-stitching at around age 8. i did the little craft kits that you could buy at target. if i wasn't riding my bike, i was making more friendship bracelets than could be counted. and yes, i puffy painted anything i could get my hands on. these crafty projects evolved into a love of dance, another form of creative expression. dance evolved into art and cheerleading. and when it came time to try and choose a career path, it was marketing and advertising that appealed to me. granted, i am on the client services side of things, but i still get to be a little more creative on a day-to-day basis than your average person in their job. and through my professional career, i've been fortunate enough to be able to be surrounded by some incredibly talented and creative individuals who only fueled my passion for creativity. and now i have found so many new ways to display creativity - paper crafting, knitting, painting, home decorating, sewing, baking....even finding new and creative ways to sneak veggies into my almost two-year old son's diet. and there are my friends and family. wow. talented. creative. mind-boggling. so, the more i thought about it, i'm surrounded by creativity. there's a reason why i'm so drawn to it. it all made sense.

so, this blog is to share creativity. to share ideas. to share projects. and even to share some unconventional ways to be a little creative everyday.

i hope you enjoy and here's to finding your creative everyday.
