Friends, family, strangers, are always telling me things like, “You are so creative!” and “You should sell those.”  What you don’t know is that every time someone says that to me, it is about something completely different.  See, the trouble I run into is I don’t want to make the same thing over and over and sell it, I want to create new things everyday!  As a child, my mom, my teachers, all said the same thing, “She doesn’t sit still!”  And, I still don’t.  I’m happy when I’m creating, organizing, or playing with my family.  I like to get the most out of every day.  So, it suddenly occured to me that if I were to create a blog about all of the different things I do, maybe I could inspire others to create, rather than just sell things to others.

About Me…

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Greg, for ten years.  We have two beautiful boys who are as wonderfully active as we are.  We love hikes in the woods in the fall, skiing and snowboarding in the winter, and long days at the beach in the summer.  My full time job is teaching, so I am lucky enough to have time off with my boys.  So, some of the projects i do are inspired by their ideas.  My husband and I are definately the do-it-yourself types.  We have lived in our current house for about six years and I recently came across pictures from when we first moved in.  I showed them to my husband saying, “I can’t believe we bought this dump!”  Of course, at the time, I definately saw the potential.  I was looking for a house with the right floor plan, I knew that a LOT of hard work, and gallons and gallons of paint could probably fix the rest.  Now, I am two bathroom renovations away from saying, “Ilove my house.”

My Blogging Plans…

I will do my best to get a new project up every week, probably Tuesday nights.  I am working on chandalier shades for my bedroom now, but more on that later.  I also want to show some before and after pictures from my house.  Hopefully you will be at least a little inspired…
