"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create. You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.
Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment."
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
It's almost magical to me that something can be made from practically nothing.
Wether it's turning this...
Or turning this...
Into this ;) ...
I feel compelled to create. It's almost like a drug. I find inspiration, gather supplies, and begin the process. The reward comes when I complete it to my satisfaction. Not all of my ideas come to fruition.
Like my bright idea to make this from PB Kids for my big girl for Halloween...
but I ran out of time and patience and ended up with this...
HAHAHA, so sad!!!
Yes, it's just a pathetic pile of cut up, stitched up pink felt. The bright side? I've learned that there are sometimes casualties of the creation process - and that's ok. Not everything comes out perfect. It's about the process.
Because I am continually inspired by things around me, I'm starting this blog to be some sort of inspiration to others to create.
So, in attempt to spark inspiration here's what I have to offer...
