I am so excited to introduce my new blog! What has been an idea in the making for some time is slowly & steadily coming to fruition. a date 2 create came about as I was so lovingly envious of the many beautiful, & creative, blogs out there. I found myself saying, "If I had the time... If life weren't so crazy right now I'd love to be my creative self more often..." I was caught up in the swift current of my busy life & wishing to be creating more, heck, creating at all! It seemed like there weren't any blogs out there for the full-time working parent, and I set out to create one :)
The idea was that I would pick a date to start creating in some way, shape, or form. I knew that if I didn't pick a date, or schedule it into my life, it wasn't going to happen. What I found was that creativity was available most anywhere - yay! It's just that when life is busy with family & work you sometimes have to be creative (ha!) in order to see the creative opportunities.
My hope is that a date 2 create will inspire you to pick a date & start creating the life you've dreamed of (while traveling at the speed of light in your own hectic life).
Most dates are meant to be fairly quick & easy, and not all of them will even be craft related. They just make my creative spirit happy - that's the goal!
The thoughts, projects, & whatever else evolves here, will probably seem quite simple to the avid crafter or creative genius, but that's how it is meant to be - creative opportunities to squeeze in now and then.
Oh, and I won't claim that the ideas here are new, instead, just an attempt at putting creativity into practice through the inspiration of what's around me.
