My daughter encouraged me to start a blog so here I am. I have been avoiding getting started but today is as good a time to start as any. What will I blog about you ask? I will share with you the things that are important to me in my life.....faith, family, friends and my love of creating. I will share recipes, ideas, thoughts and photos. I look forward to perhaps inspiring someone else to discover their creative side. Decorating my home or constantly changing things around and adding new touches give me one area to be creative. I also love to machine embroider and make just about anything else with my hands. As women, God has called us to be the hearts and the keepers of our homes. It is a position of responsibility and influence, as well as honor and great reward. As we all know, mothers set the tone in the home ...... so I want my home to be a place of comfort and joy for my family and friends to enjoy. So I'm off to starting my blog! I want to dedicate it to my daughter who has experienced more in her young life than most people ever will. She is a loving daughter to me and an awesome mother to my precious grandson. She also encourages me to create and gives me advice and inspiration.
