For over 6 years, this blog has been all about the love of home, family, neighbors & friends, being a mom of boys, homegrown gardens, handmade things from paper, fabric, batter and dough, lots of life in a little house, making things from things you already have (aka Trailerpark Martha), the trials of laundry and matching socks and teaching creative classes that incorporate almost all of the above (except for the laundry) because it is what I love to do...and because I get to do it for a living, I am blessed.
For the past few years, I have really dug deeper into faith, reminded myself and others of the things I forgot to remember and have infused my love for the Lord into my everyday blogging as well as in the things I doodle & teach. I am blessed to have the freedom to do this and blessed to have readers that embrace it...so Thank you.
It is what keeps me going, keeps me balanced and in-check (well and a big ol' egg with the word PURPOSE on it!)
Throughout the years, there have been many changes, tremendous growth in relationships, faith, business and life, big & ugly setbacks, a few too many forks in the road, lots of happy heart filled creative moments, being brave and courageous when I did not think I had it in me, and plain ol' day to day moments in between, and for that I am blessed.
Right now, things are moving forward one minute, up & down the next and sometimes, even backwards. I have been learning that when you combine everyday life with purpose, creating art, sharing faith and doing laundry, sometimes the lines get crossed and blurred.
Right now, as I type, I am working towards creative decisions, website & blog education and super cool new on-line classes and I just want to Thank You for your continued support, love and for hanging in there with me.
