{tapping into my crafty brain}

i'd like to think i'm a pretty crafty kinda girl. i love reading blogs on how-to's , DIYs, tutorials, and just plain making pretty things. i love to get inspired by somebody's favorite color scheme, ideas, experiences, or anything that makes people happy.

i think my ambition in life is really to do just that. make things that make people happy. in turn, i make myself happy, but other people too. i read a verse that really just kind of captivated me. its this :
"Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." (Proverbs 16:3)
it makes you stop, doesn't it? its hard sometimes for us to be selfish and want the things that WE want. we all struggle with that, don't we? i sure do. but this verse really helps me with that. to me, it means, hey - our own worldly desires are not something that we should push away, because if you commit to whatever it is that you do, your plans will succeed. that's why i feel like i really get to my happy place when i make things. when i make people happy. and when i just take time to put effort into my business and the way i want people to see me. i'm real, i am who i am and i'm not going to change my persona to fit anyone elses. that's why i have my favorite colors, my style, my passion and love for photography and graphic design. i've often told people, i would still do graphic design and photography even i didn't get paid to do it. i just love it that much. and one day, my plans will succeed. i don't know when. i know i'm successful at what i do, because people confirm that for me. i get new ideas and inspirations and excitement and that just confirms i'm doing what i need to be doing. my plans are successful.

i don't know what the future holds. with my field, there is so much out there. there are lots of ways that design and photography can go. as for now, i'll plug on like i'm "pluggin" on. and as for the future, i'll see. but in the now, its the little things that are making me happy. reading blogs. people's experiences, crafting adventures and just their daily lives. its amazing how you can connect.

anyways, my whole point is to say, i wouldn't have the love of photography and design, if i couldn't be hands-on too. i really love the whole aspect of being an artist, that you can change your daily routine. i feed off of using my hands to make things. i'll keep it that way, and i'm sure my plans will succeed :)

as for now, here's a few crafty tutorials that i think i'm going to dig into this weekend!
