I am still blooming, and I couldn't be happier about it.
I grew up with a very creative mother. We had limited resources, and yet she still seemed to find ways to create unique things. Something as simple as cutting paper star shapes out of magazine pages, and hanging them over our dinner table. The seed of creativity was in my brain, however I never felt a need to explore it.
Ten years ago I gave birth to my third daughter. During this much wanted pregnancy, I suffered from severe anti-partum depression. Just by chance I started a craft project, and three hours later, realized I had actually been meditating. The creativity took my mind to a different place. My sadness took a break.
After my beautiful daughter was born, I made my first mosaic project. And I was HOOKED. Making something beautifully expressive out of tiny pieces of anything and everything, just does something to my heart and psyche.
