Just for Fun

This article on A Beautiful Mess about the joy of doing a project just for fun inspired me! I'm not a creative entrepreneur like the ladies of A Beautiful Mess, but the combination of blogging and life time pressure means that almost every "side project" I do has a purpose. It's either for the blog or something to improve my home or something like that. I rarely make something just because I feel like it, but what fun! What freedom! What joy, in just being creative for fun!

Expand or Contract

Oof. My heart!
some people
when they hear
your story.
contract.
others
upon hearing
your story.
