I guess I should introduce myself.
My name is Rachel, I'm 34, a wife and mother of two. Nothing really exciting there, I know, but though my life may not be that interesting to a tabloid magazine it is....meaningful and significant. And so is yours.

My faith has tought me that no matter how simple or unoticed a life may be it will always be meaninful and significant to the one who created it.
And even if you don't believe in a creator your life is still significant to those who know you.

So that said, this blog was created for artists and crafters. And as artists and crafters we understand the significance of created things! No matter how small or simple they may be, it took our time and creativity and love for what we are creating to make it. And thus this thing, this craft that no one else may notice or care about is now meaningful and significant.

I create salt dough christmas ornaments and figures. It doesn't get much simpler than salt, flour and water.
But with a little molding and crafting, some vision, paint and love...we get something that can be hung on a tree and bring a little charm to the Holidays.

That's what I create. And this blog will have more to do with crafting and such later on. But for now I just wanted to introduce myself and where I am coming from when I craft.

So what do you create? What is behind your creations? What motivates you?

Bye for now!
