Happy Valentine's Day!


Okay, so these are two cards I made using the Cricut cart "Create a Critter 2."  Totally cute cart!  I've actually made a few cards using this cart and the same general template of cute critter at the center and greeting at the bottom.  I'm sure I will find more cute ways of using this cart!  For now, I'm sending one card to my niece and one to my parents.  I'm debating whether I should make a cute card like this for my husband, or figure out something with a more romantic message.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

As the years pile up behind me like wreckage on an interstate, I begin to realize how little I have done that feels authentic to me.  I feel a creative soul inside my body, yet do nothing to vent this creative energy.  The reason I believe, is because I have no language of creativity:  my eyes do not see the patterns that create art.  

Even so, the desire to create is present and now I am preparing to act on it.  I think many women feel this way; we know the feeling is there, but don't know how to start.  I'm going to begin with this blog. My plan is to document my efforts at learning to craft and create something that I can share with others.  I hope this process will lead me to find the creative sight that I have been missing; to learn the language that I really think I was born knowing, but have not practiced and therefore, forgotten.
