Creative Life

What Creative Life Means to Me

I love creating. I love being able to take nothing and make something for someone. Words become a blog or a book. Paper becomes a card. Pictures become a moment in time displayed in a frame. Paint becomes a half-assed attempt to show someone how much I care about them. Okay, my paintings aren't that bad.

My intention is that this section of my blog will be a place where I can display everything that I create; talk about it and share it with all of you! I hope you enjoy it!
