Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the internet. I have had the idea for this site in my mind for quite some time now and as the end of the year approaches, I didn’t want to say,
“Oh well… maybe next year.”
No time like the present right?!
So what is craft-create-connect? It’s a place to come and be inspired as an artist, as a crafter, as a creative soul. It is most importantly a place where you can begin to explore those things, even if you don’t fancy that you have a creative bone in your body! I have heard it before and I have said it myself… “Oh! You could totally make that. You are sooooo creative.” Occasionally, I would turn it around (on a confident sort of day) and I would say…
“Ohhhh…. I would totally make that!”
and then realize I had no idea how to start or where to even begin. So we are going to work to change both of those things! I will explore and share and I want you to do the same! I even promise to post my fails! Seriously. So many times we go comparing ourselves to people’s perfects when what they don’t tell you is that there were many, many fails before they got the perfect. That’s part of the fun! That is part of the exploring and that is part of the journey. Without failure, success does not seem so sweet now does it. And of course we all know we need to at least try first!
The other thing you will notice is that as much as possible, I will be sharing ideas that you can do with your kiddos. When I started painting again, I was joined by my daughter. She genuinely wanted to work and to try. Not fearing a mess, we did it together and she loved the process as much. This has provided a nice connection in my house. Creative time sometimes happens best alone but there is something about creating together and sharing.
So let’s do this!
