Well, here I am in the blogsphere at last :) I've considered -- and even attempted -- blogging a couple of times, but I never really had a focus -- a real REASON to blog. And, given that I am easily sucked into cyberspace, where time is a nebulous concept, I have always been afraid that I would allow too much of my life to be consumed by the details and intricacies of blogging (especially since I know so little about the technical stuff).
But now I have a very specific focus: creativity. That is, my plan is to explore that aspect of God in my life, and in the lives of my family members. I’ve always liked “making” things, but I would never have considered myself an artist by any stretch of the imagination, nor would I have seen “art” in many of the creative things I’ve done. But lately, I’ve been thinking about the many ways “creative” can be applied to me and the people in my life, and I’m thinking that, really, we all can claim the title of “artist” to some extent . . .
Anyway, the long and the short of it is that this blog will be a place for me to post evidence of creativity in my life – in my artistic endeavours, in the teaching and training of my children, in my home-making, in my memory-making, and in my family at large. I hope you find some inspiration in the words and pictures here. After all -- you, too, are CREATED TO BE CREATIVE!
