Interview for the Christian Artist Street Team Blog

I am honored to be featured in the CASTTEAM (Christian Artist Street Team)blog this week.

When I opened my Etsy shop four years ago, one of the first things I did was join this team of Christian Artisans. What an encouragement it has been to link up with this group from all over the world.

Sometimes, it might be a blog post from a fellow team member that was the bright spot in my day. Or being included in a treasury made up of fellow artisans.
Being part of a team has given me a sense of belonging in the Etsy world which has thousands of other artisans and shop owners.

Thank you CASTTEAM for always bringing encouragement to me.

My word for 2014 is CREATE! I am hoping, dreaming and planning on spending more time creating, and not just doing.

Often, I get caught up in the "doing" of life. There are so many things that need to be done. Chores, responsibilities; you know, The "Should's" of life. I "should" clean house. I "should" pull weeds. I "should" do laundry. And the list can go on and on, until the creative soul inside begins to shrivel up and become dormant.

This year, I would like to release the creative spirit in me. I want to see where it soars, where it will fly! When released, where will my spirit lead me. I want to go beyond the "Should's". Is it possible that I can create something that I've never done before?

My artist soul is longing. Maybe this isn't the year for some big, great, revelation. But it is the year that I am stepping forward with intention to CREATE more. To see what my heart and my hands can form, when they work together in harmony.

Thanks for allowing me to share a peek inside of who I am.

The Creative Journey begins~
