Welcome to This Creative Nest – a space to share all things creative. From daily living and personal development, to recipes, travel and of course, DIY projects, it’s my mission to share tips and guides to help YOU live your unique life to the fullest!
In my eyes, a creative life stems from authenticity, gratitude and courage; all gifts from our ultimately creative Creator. These elements spark creativity in each life – even if you don’t consider yourself “creative”. For the longest time, I saw myself as the furthest thing from creative. I claimed I couldn’t draw a straight line – which wasn’t too far from the truth! But it turns out, every single one of us has a creative “muscle” and the more we flex that muscle, the more we build authentic, original lives.
Moving past my “can’t draw a straight line” days, I now enjoy graphic design, knitting, painting with watercolors, hand-lettering, and “upcycling” home decor. The courage to explore these hobbies came from the realization that creativity isn’t limited strictly to arts and crafts. Creativity can be expressed in the way you decorate your home, dress yourself each day, prepare meals to nourish you and your family, practice self-care and plan grand adventures. Creativity can thrive in the ordinary and everyday; we simply choose to recognize and express it.
Each of these expressions of creativity have helped me craft a life I love – and I hope to help you do the same!
