But for me, I want a warm house and to know that my family is loved and cared for. I want life to be simple - by my definition.
For some time in my life, I didn't always feel safe. During that time, my creativity got stuck. I couldn't get it out of me. Because when we don't feel safe, all we worry about is feeling safe. There isn't room for creativity, or anything else.
So as I climbed out of my fear, my safety net got larger.
I moved. I changed my surroundings. I went from the quiet suburbs to a bustling city. I made new friends. I challenged my beliefs and stepped out of my comfort zone to experience new things. I worked hard on familial relationships that had suffered from my fear. I took responsibility for me. I changed me, and made amends where and when they were necessary.
Because I learned that when I change me, everything around me changes.
And I began to feel safe.
Safe, by my definition.
And my creativity grew.
I learned how to weave in college. I've been sewing since I was a teenager. I picked up spinning and knitting on the way.
This website is a culmination of all the skills I've learned my many decades on this earth and my changing creativity. I hope you will come along for the ride and challenge your own beliefs, ideas and open up to your own creativity.
It's worth the work.
