Creativity Overflow

Creativity Overflow

There have been quite a few moments over the last several weeks where I've had to step back and take in how lucky I feel right now.  I have so many different creative projects on the go and it's felt really fulfilling for me. I've always been a creative being but have lacked direction and felt as though the best way to practice creativity was safely - within our home, and our lives, where it's understood and appreciated and valued.  But I've always had this desire somewhere deep down to find my voice and platform to confidently have my art seen.

Florals x Wildly Us

Florals x Wildly Us

I'm really excited to share this project with you all!  At the beginning of this year I decided that I wanted to work with my hands creatively.  Flowers felt like the most natural fit.  Growing up I would cut bunches of purple lilacs from our backyard and arrange them strategically around my bedroom.  Flowers are always at the centre of our table when we entertain (which is quite often).  In the last few years I've started growing flowers in our garden with dreams of having a cut flower garden one day.  And through the winter theres nothing quite like a beautiful bouquet to give life to home when everything outside is freezing and covered in snow.  I love the idea of flowers being at the heart of gatherings, a part of celebration, and a loving + thoughtful way to let someone know you're thinking of them.

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas!! December has flown by and suddenly Christmas holidays are here!  I can't even begin to express how much I am looking forward to the next 11 days.  We decided to spend time just the three of us doing whatever it is that makes our hearts happy.  I think the next few days are going to include lots of matching pyjama time, and all the Christmas movies we haven't yet watched this year (mainly It's a Wonderful Life, and A Christmas Carol).  A break from the everyday and a transition into vaca mode and then the beginning of a new year!

The Stuff of Life

The Stuff of Life

Life has been full lately.  We live in such a "busy" world.  People wear busy like a badge of purpose.  I try and avoid using the expression "I'm SO busy".  I don't want to be TOO busy.  Too busy for the people and things that mean the most to me.  Abundance and fullness are much better words and somehow include all those people and things that busy leaves out.  The truth is that this busyness has caused us to review and make a few adjustments.  It's not a bad thing to take inventory, realize what can fall away, and what's integral to doing life the way you want to and in being the person you want to be.  Especially before you're too busy to take stock, only to finally have time one day to realize you've been filling your life with things that aren't who you want to be.
