The reality is many of us put pressure on ourselves to be perfect at entertaining, when what guests really desire is special time with you, their host, in a home that is welcoming, comfortable, and a reflection of who you are. Now on certain days if you were to drop by my home, it might reflect that I'm disorganized and a tad chaotic (I maintain that is a reflection of the other 4 people abiding in this home! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.) But once you kick the toys out of the way and see past whatever project is in progress, I hope you will find my home reflecting back my true loves: my Jesus, my family, my friends, and my desire that our home be a place of refuge and comfort to all who pass through its doors.
My home isn't "finished" and it isn't perfect and it isn't as organized as I would like, but it is full of love, joy, forgiveness, grace, and creativity. Most of you will never walk through the doors of my home, so this blog is my opportunity to truly extend hospitality to each of you. For this reason, I am doing a little remodeling right now. It's a whole lot cheaper and a whole lot less messy than remodeling my home, but I feel it is just as important. So please bear with me as I make some cosmetic and content adjustments around this little piece of the web I call A Humble Creation.
I'm trying out some new looks that reflect me better. I like uncluttered pages, soothing colors, and minimal "stuff", so I'm giving it a try. Feel free to let me know what you think about the new look; after all, I want you to feel welcome and invited.
You may also see some minor changes in content around here to better reflect who I am and who I want to be. Don't worry! If you love my crazy projects, half-finished quilts, and crafts that sometimes don't go as planned, never fear...they will still be here. This blog started as a place to share creative projects. Yes, period...I seemed to forget that I am a whole person, not just a sporadic source of crafting ideas and projects. I've realized, for me, a blog is better when you see the whole person. My remodel will include more of me, more of my faith, maybe a little more of my family, and definitely more of life, but it's still a home for all things creative!
I will also continue my Monday link party (open starting Sunday night), but I'm renaming it to A New Creation, which is a better reflection of who I am as well, for I am a new creation in Christ. Please continue to link up all your creative projects and feel free to grab my new button.
I hope you will continue to feel welcome to a place of comfort, rest, inspiration, kindness and love. Thanks for joining me in this process!
