At first, I was going to call this blog “Craft More.” Because I loooove crafts. Especially with friends. But then I realized creativity goes beyond crafts.
It’s the extra flair in wrapping Christmas gifts. Or the tabletop details at a dinner party or a baby shower. Or the thoughtfulness of making a friend’s birthday card. Or the creativity it takes to solve problems at work. Or passion for starting a family.
So my new year’s resolution this year is to “Create More.” And I think you should, too. A primary way I plan to do that is by bringing back Craft Club with the girls (Our first meeting of the new year will be screen printed Craft Club T-shirts—watch out). I also plan to create an art calendar to give as gifts next Christmas, so I’m going to design and print a calendar month each month (That’s 12 printing projects, so I better not get behind). By creating tangibly, I hope that I can create more friendship, love and passion.
And because we could all “Create More,” I’ve started this blog.
There are so many times I wish I’ve had a venue for sharing my craft projects, invitations, party themes, gift wrap, Pinterest copy-cats, holiday decor, craft how-tos and more. I also plan to tap the brains of several of my creative and talented friends to write guests posts. So you just might get to learn a little more about cooking, photography, storytelling and knitting—in addition to other hands on projects, entertaining and paper crafts. There are ways we can create every day.
So I hope you’ll join me in making a resolution, and “Create More” today!
