I mentioned in a previous post that I am reading a really fun book about becoming more creative. Starting tomorrow, I am planning to do a short series, probably about 6 posts, with some of the things I am learning from this book. The book is called "The New Creative Artist, a Guide to Developing Your Creative Spirit" by Nita Leland. I've always loved to make things, but I don't think of myself as creative. I can copy things I see, but I have a harder time coming up with original ideas, and I'd like to get better at it. The author of this book claims that everyone has the ability to be creative, and there are some steps we can follow to help get us there.
If you would like to follow this series, 'like' my facebook page if you haven't already. I'm still learning too, I'm just trying to take as many people as possible with me!

I entered another quilt in the Quilter's Show and Tell contest this week too, (The Moose Madness one from a few posts back) click on the purple box to go vote for your favorites, and see how easy it is to enter your own quilt, this contest is held almost weekly. (If it's not there yet, it will be later today. This week's theme is Quilting Close Up)

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
