I have always been a creative person

I have always been a creative person.  I often lovingly remind the Hubs.....
"this is what you signed up for, you knew what you were getting when you married me"
When I came across this saying today I thought it 100% fit!
Being creative is incredibly fun and gratifying but also can be a bit overwhelming for others.  I am hard to carry a conversation with because I think of something and I jump topics then remember what I was saying and jump back (maybe an hour or so later).  I am a free spirit who loves to try new things.  This is one of the things that the Hubs loves most about me AND DRIVES HIM CRAZY!!!!  Not that I blame him.  At times I have to be a blast and other times I cause stress because I didn't always think things through before I begin or I didn't plan my time the best.  I get wild ideas while sitting on the couch in the evening next to him,  he is ready to head to bed while I am coming up with ideas for a new project.  

For instance When I painted our entry....

I was getting new carpet for our living room the following week so I was peaking under our old carpet.  We never had an entry so when I pulled up the carpet and found we had a few feet of GROSS wood floor in front of the door my mid started spinning with ideas.  So the next day while the Hubs was at work I painted the floor. You can read more about the floor here

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and gearing up for a FABULOUS New Year!!!
Are you setting New Years Resolutions/Goals?

  4. I'm the same way but with my photography. I'm always looking for new gear or thinking of new locations. I wish I had more knack for home decor but I do love seeing your ideas!

  5. YES! I so relate to this poster...our home at the moment is in the 'we've been robbed' state of creative frenzy! My brain was over- stimulated during the holiday and well....I've been creating up a storm! :)

  6. I am going to have us all set some 2014 goals on New Years day. And one or two goals for the family to accomplish.

    1. In fact, I read this to my husband and he said, "...what you need is a craft room OR a bigger house to contain you..." Contain me?! LOL.
