Hi there. Still blogging from the ole’ laptop. Almost got my creative space in order…here’s a peek–I can’t show it all cause I have to iron my drapes still and clean out one corner. I’m doing a very good job so far of putting things back (I have a problem with that :)-just ask Scott LOL!) I’m so excited because I was able to put my "thinking" chair back in my space now that I have a bigger room…see it in the corner. Its a cute little leopard print chair…comfy!
So about that muscle flexing…I remember Rhonna Farrer saying something about doing something creative everyday. I think I probably do that already, but I’ve found that I do better at creating small things…things that give me immediate gratification and those small steps inspire and motivate me so much. Like the tags I made the other day. I’ve done a couple more sets…anybody interested? Here are a couple of packages I wrapped today. These tags are great if you are traveling with your gifts–no smushed bows and you still have a decorative touch.

Sara’s birthday is the end of the month, so I made some special birthday tags in her honor. Love how the color pops on this dotty paper (its from Hobby Lobby).
On this one I added red buttons to the holly berries to embellish it a bit. Very simple, but so fun! I printed the tags onto a cheaper Kodak photopaper–makes the colors really vivid and bright!

So, lately I’ve kinda got this wild hair. Itchin’ to do something. Set some bigger goals…even ones that seem out of reach. Invest some time into something for ME. Hmmm? I think thats why I’ve been flexing my creative muscles, so to speak. I’ve got so many ideas…just need to funnel them into focus. I find pairing down all of my thoughts into a manageable plan sometimes so overwhelming!! I really love creating little collections of art. But now I’m feeling organized and rejuvenated…I’m waiting for my sign. I feel like God is nudging me…I’m just waiting patiently for the reveal. I have faith that it will become clear all in good time.
So for my creative work out–Last night I signed up for the 12 Days of Comfort and Joy with Teresa McFayden. I just love her. Totally not my style, really, but I’m so intrigued by her and her look and how she goes about creating. Its so very interesting and fabulous and gorgeous. I’m thinking I really need some of that glass glitter everybody’s using now! Its SO BEAUTIFUL! Its so cool to step out of the old comfort zone and embrace a totally different style and method…I’m really enjoying the class with Teresa. And I haven’t even made anything yet!! LOL!!
Well, I think I need a cup of coffee…I’m going to go fire the old Bunn up and pour a steaming cup. Anybody wanna have coffee with me? Come on over 😉
