Did you do something creative today?

I think we can all be creative! I have friends who are creative, and they don't even know it! I have friends who craft, who are artistic, who write, who blog, who take some really beautiful photos! Some people are creative with their spoken word, some with their written word. As for me, I know what I love and I do what I love. In doing these things, I feel creative! And that is all that matters to me. I like to do something creative every day.

So I have started this blog to share all things creative. I would love it, if you are creative as well, to share some of that with me and I will post it here! If you have a blog you would like others to read, send me a message and I will post that here as well!

Today when I woke up, I thought I was going to be working in my craft room on some Valentine goodies for an upcoming sale of mine. Then a friend called, and we talked on the phone longer than I thought. So I gave up on the idea to go work downstairs. Instead, I decided to bake!

So I started with some banana loaf, one of our household favorites!

Oh how I hate when this kind of mess happens!

And yes I do take pictures of allot of things. After all  I am a scrapbooker, and strange things go on in my house all the time. I have three cats and a dog, so often, this is what I walk into when I walk into a room....

Angel sneaking in to my daughters drawer (which she left open again!)

Harvey taking a nap under my covers! How he gets like that, I do not know!

And sometimes I see the cats being not so nice to my dog Duke.....

Harvey giving Duke a swat!

I have to admit that I thought blogs were a funny sort of thing! I didn't quite get why people wrote them, nor why people followed them. Now I get it. I am sure it is different for everyone, but universally it is a great way to share. Now, I  am a regular reader of a few great blogs, I contribute to some blogs, and I have two of my own. I write both of my blogs for different reasons, and I get a different sort of satisfaction out of writing each of them! I only wish I took up reading blogs when I worked full time. I always found it so hard to get my books read, but reading a great blog would have been a fabulous escape! Now, subscribing to follow a blog, is like getting a card or nice letter in your mailbox (instead of the dreaded bills!). I love to check my e mail and get a notice that one of my favorite blogs has a new post!

I have started the second part of my afternoon with another great escape, and that is a wonderful latte! I love the sweetness of perfectly steamed milk, with the dark richness of a perfectly pulled shot of Starbucks espresso!

Actually I like mine with 2 shots, no sweetness except the milk!

All in a beautiful mug that fits perfectly in your hand. This one fits perfectly in mine! And it sure is a beauty! I bought it at a craft sale this winter!

I am going to sit on my chair with a cat in my lap, and count the minutes until my daughter bursts through the front door, home from school (and likely with a friend in tow) and starts asking me if we can do this, and do that and then can we do the other thing. Then I will hear her grumble when I burst her bubble and tell her we have some homework to do after her snack!

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you will choose to follow my blog, share your creativity here as well and choose to stay connected to someone today, in a world that keeps us disconnected so often!
