Passion: Creating

I have always loved creating. As chair of my church’s annual Holiday Bazaar (craft sale) for over 15 years I have led a small group in a workshop where we create ornaments and decorations to he sold at the event. We meet weekly for 8 months and make as much as we can get done. I love coming up with new ideas.


Then I had a house fire and everything went blank for awhile. Understandably I was overwhelmed but as the process of rebuilding began I came to realize that my creative juices were beginning to flow again. I started working on painting projects to decorate my new home! I worked with chalk paint to create a bookshelf. When my sister and I took a trip to Duluth we took a painting class, just the two of us, from a local artist and I was hooked! I have since signed up for several online paint nights and they have been fun too! I have a new project in the works- repainting some chairs my dad made for us when he built our play kitchen set. Painting is relaxing, fun and a great stress-reliever for me!
