What's your blog/website(s)? Grow Creative (

Why do you blog/write? What do you hope to accomplish with blogging?
 I started my creative blog as an outlet for my creative ideas, art, and projects and as a way to keep myself motivated to keep exploring, learning, and making things while being a stay-at-home mom.  It's grown to be a way to connect me to other creative people around the world, to share ideas, and to support each other in what we love to do.  It also keeps me going through the hard times that come in life.  Sharing my talents and connecting with others has a way of helping me to be more grateful for what I do have!

Any words of encouragement or wisdom to impart?
The things that have made the biggest difference for me in having positive experiences with blogging are to first, always be yourself and share who you really are, and second, to not compare yourself to others.  Just love yourself for who you are and what you love to do!
