Creativity and creating is a major part of my life. In fact, it is so huge that I live and breathe creating in various forms (paint, crochet, wood-burn, write, mentor)! And more importantly, creativity can solve problems.

When I was little I made crafts all the time from coloring to fun Christmas pine cone villages. We made cookies and we colored. I wrote a lot. Writing helped me deal with the challenges of living in a foster home but I stopped because my foster mother invaded my privacy.

During my first pregnancy at 17, I remembered the crochet I learned in high-school and decided to give it another try. I haven’t put down the hook since. My journey included doilies to clothing and everything in between and you can now find my work here!

Through the years, I have colored and drawing journals and wrote letters and blogged!

As my son got older, my craft skills got better and I lived on the craft channels and scrapbooked, decoupage, crochet some more. I started designing my own blankets and even released a few patterns.

I started making jewelry – macramé being my first choice and started a business. I wanted to create my own bead designs and started to wood burn and moved on from there to create bigger pieces and practice and hone what appeared to be a natural talent.

Creating has helped me through some difficult times. When my youngest son was ill in the hospital, I doodled to pass the time, to bring beauty into our challenging world.

Creating is therapeutic for me, it aids and helps in my self-care and helps me to be balanced. But more than anything else, it helps me solve problems time and time again.

At times overwhelmed with the reality of my own trauma which has left its scars and makes maneuvering my world a little challenging. When I create, I can process feelings and thoughts and how it impacts me and the people in my world.

I channel my overwhelm and frustrations with creating but also to bring beauty into people’s lives.

Creativity is in part like breathing and then it’s like meditating but more often than anything, if given the time and space creativity can solve problems.
