So, a little about myself. I am a twenty-six-year-old wife to an amazing man and mom to two incredible children: a four-year-old daughter and two-year-old son. My husband and kids are the center of my life. For the past two years I have been a stay-at-home mom, and this school year I have began substituting in local schools while I wait to be hired as a full-time teacher. I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and I would like to start on a master’s in education in the near future at the University of Texas. I have several hobbies and interests, some of them being writing, drawing, painting, reading, amateur photography and obviously cooking, baking, crafts, and DIY activities. I am also addicted to Pinterest; it fuels my passion for creating things! In truth, it helped to motivate me to start my blog so that I can share my projects, and my version of projects found online, with others who are interested.
Creating things makes me feel free and happy. It makes me feel like the sky is the limit, and it gives me a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when I complete a project. It gives me the “I did something great today” fuzzies. When I’m not making things regularly and exercising the right side of my brain, I get down in the dumps easily. Creative activities put me in my element and make me feel like me, the real me, the me I am. It is my greatest passion, which is probably why all of my hobbies are centered around it and why teaching is my calling (teaching is, after all, creating methods and opportunities for children to learn!). I think the process of creation is important in itself because it exercises your brain, provides stress relief, and boosts self esteem. Who doesn’t like looking at something they made and thinking, “I did that!” It is my goal with this blog to spread those feelings around by providing ideas, tutorials, and tips on anything I come across that is creative in any form.
