create.

I had to put this here, so I could scroll down some random day, and remember, again.



I have a keen ambition to create something everyday. I often interpret that into selfish, material terms. But my passion for creation stems far beyond an ability to sew a straight seam.

The ModPodge and pompom makers go back in the closet, and my showpiece for the day becomes the pb&j...

when I remember.

To create memories. confidence. laughter. trust. gratitude. courage. interest. ambition.
To take something broken, and fix it.
To mold these miracles...into our masterpiece.

This has been my inspiration as well! It was so liberating and so inspiring to be told that my job in life is to create things, whether it be a meal, a clean home, or craft (straight seams still elude me, though!). Thanks for sharing.
