Who Said Being Creative was Easy?

So about that push I talked about last year on June 25, 2015? Yeah…you really don’t know what’s going to happen when you have a big family in the mix. I will say though, I have done a lot of creative things since June of last year even if I didn’t have time to post them here and share with everyone.

It’s sad that I so look forward to being creative and then it often slips through the cracks into the canyon of life…but at least my creativity is always with me.

First, let me recap what I wanted to do and see how much of it I actually did…

SUMMER READING? Check.

That was a lot of fun. I had a goal, and I nailed it. I even got my free book for winning. Anastasia joined me, and she did awesome too. It was a blast going to the library and picking out the books every couple of weeks. I had to read five, and I read some really good books. I added them below (and linked the image to my Goodreads account if you want to see what else I read last year).

Summer Reading 2015

They were all great books. Very different from each other, and I enjoyed them all very much. I forgot how much I loved reading the romance genre (And Nora Roberts knows how it’s done!).

LIBRARY TIME WITH THE LITTLE ONES? Check.

Curious how I managed to take the kids (including the baby) with me to the library? Here’s how…

CAMP NANOWRIMO? Um. No.

It did not turn out as well as I had hoped. Did we write? We did. I Pantsed it, and it was fun, but we only managed to write a little bit (We includes myself, Samantha and Anastasia). 

More Creating, Painting, Drawing? CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!

On January 18, 2016, I created something new. I wanted to make sure that I was having one-on-one time with the kids. It was important to me and very needed. With so much going on, we needed to find time to just be us together. And so I created KrimeTime, SaneTime and AnneTime.

KrimeTime (Kristopher + Nenah although I stretched it to an ‘M’ for my real first name)
SaneTime (Samantha + Nenah)
AnneTime (Anastasia +Nenah)

Every week, I get to spend at least one hour with each of them. Although it hasn’t happened every single week because some weeks are crazier than others, for the most part we have. I have been coming up with fun crafts for us to do, and they have so much fun 🙂

I’ll share more pictures in other posts, so for now, here’s a quick collage of some fun stuff we’ve done.

So, creativity has definitely been moving along, just need to keep it going and keep sharing!

Keep doing what you love and love doing it.

Until next time,

Enjoy. And Reed.
