Maybe you’re like me and you go through phases of creativity. Sometimes it’s writing (hence, the blog) and sometimes it’s crochet (especially when it gets cold out), but right now it’s canvases. Painting. Drawing. Wall art. You name it and I want to do it! It doesn’t help that Michaels has a super huge sale… Continue reading I’m on a Painting Kick
I just made another one of these… so fun! Just buy an inflatable beach ball and use a Sharpie to write questions all over it.

This morning’s Create Before 8. Question: do those little swirly bubble tail things have a name? You see them all the time in decorations of girly stuff. Anyway. Hope you enjoy! Are you a morning, afternoon, or evening creator? Or do you just snag whatever time you can manage?
Create Before 8 is an initiative I’m starting (you can join too, if you want). All you have to do is create (or continue finishing up) a work of creativity before 8:00am. Easy peasy, if you already happen to be awake that early. Click here for more information on Create Before 8. Create Before 8… Continue reading Create Before 8: Sharpie doodles 01
