If you'd like a glimpse into my personal life, how this blog came about, keep reading. If you'd like a short mini version- check this print out, I think it says a lot :)
If you are more curious than that grab a cup of coffee and chill with me for a little while...and get to know me a little.
Many of you don't know my personal story (if you are visual, you can check it out in an info graphic here), actually it's probably safe to say, that most people don't know my story. It's not that different than some of yours -I'm sure. But, then again, maybe it is.

After settling at what I like to call rock bottom, a place I couldn't see anyway out of. A miracle happened (yup I used the word miracle). I don't know if you believe in miracles or not. But I do. I do because this was a miracle. period.
Super simple morning routine, nothing different was going on. Jumped in the shower, as soon as I got in, the light turned on in my life. I had clarity. I knew what my purpose was. I had always known that I was born to create- I needed to start creating. If I were to describe this as a picture, I would say I drove into a carwash in a black car and came out in a white car. Serious, black and white. Try to convince me this wasn't a miracle, you'll go blue in the face ;)
You see when you grow up believing that your purpose is to be a mom. When that is taken away from you (for a time, because I still believe we will have children) Where do you go? how do you reformulate something that was so ingrained in my heart, in my being. Something I had hoped, dreamed and wished for all of my life. Well I'm not sure I could on my own. Hence my Miracle.
My heart changed. I realized I was so blessed. I am so blessed. My attitude changed in a moment of time. It became so full of gratitude and appreciation for my life and for my world (and if you are reading this, you are part of my world). I began to cultivate that attitude. To nurture it. To live it.

January 2013 I started sharing my printables. I would post a free graphic every once in a while- I just kept posting. One foot in front of the other, It was making me happy. Just knowing my work was out there for people to see and download if they wanted too. In August I had what I like to call THE BIG WEEK! (click to read about it) and I set a goal to post a new graphic every day for 7 days. Well that has been ongoing every since. I don't strive to post a new graphic daily, it just happens. I start working and it is born. And because I am no longer willing to keep stuff lying around on my computer incase one day I "may" be able to sell it- I post it!
So I guess there you have it. There is a tiny glimpse of why I do what I do... I am a creative being. I believe I was created to create! To make things, I am happiest making things. I am happy doing stuff with my hands- and I have a found a great source of Joy in sharing and giving!
My hope for you is that you find your passion and your purpose. I believe everyone's purpose on this earth is to love. So start with that. Start loving. Open your heart, and your passion will pursue you...
Share the love,
|again with the coffee :)|
