Getting Back To My Creative Self

Project #1image

 

Being creative makes me happy!

The past few years have been a little rough and somewhere in there I lost touch with that part of myself. Too much time was spent worrying about Jameson and making sure he would be okay. And not to mention five pregnancies, doctor visit after doctor visit, and of course all the time spent raising funds for prosthetics. But now things have calmed down and we are so blessed to have two beautiful healthy children, a new house and I am proud to say that Jameson is thriving and doing amazing!

With our new-found down time and a bigger home I can get back to doing healthy activities with my family. Some of those activities involve arts and crafts and ” do it yourself” projects! With a Bachelors’s Degree in Design, I like to think of myself as a creative person and I could not be more excited for all the possibilities!

My boys are still a little bit young for most of the projects I have in mind, but I love the thought of one day being able to create something together.

With that being said:

Project #1

With Halloween just around the corner, I decided to take all the pickle jars (about eight of them) that I saved this last year (I was pregnant ok) and turn them into colorful jack o’lanterns or rather “jar” o’ lanterns!

Easy peasy!
