I figured it appropriate to start my first post with a brief introduction. My name is Cassie. While this is not my first blog, it is the first time that I will be opening up about who I am personally. While I am many things; a wife, mother, sister, friend and daughter; what I am at the bottom of my soul is an artist. I have had a need to create since I can remember. It has been almost a necessity; much like air, food and water. I am a socially awkward introvert and putting myself out there (even in the virtual world) is both a little scary and a little strange, as I usually tend to keep to myself.
Being a wife and mom can be very challenging. Being creative, I would just love to follow my inspiration wherever it takes me. Sometimes being on everyone else’s schedule takes its toll on me. It has actually been more than 6 months since I have painted. Luckily I have accomplished some other creative goals such as building an arbor and tending to my garden, so I can’t complain too much. Someday I would love the freedom to be able to create for a living, whether it be building, painting or refinishing furniture.
I have a husband and two amazing boys (5 and 2) who are my world. I am also pregnant with my third. I love taking the kids outside and showing them the world. It’s amazing to see everything through fresh eyes. This pregnancy has been different than my first two. I have been much sicker and more tired this time around. Not to mention a perma headache! Luckily, I am just ending the first trimester. 😃 New baby #3 will be here the end of January or beginning of February!!
So, there are a few things about me. Through this blog, I hope to share whatever wisdom I can, along with some of my never ending diy projects. I also hope to connect with like minded people who struggle some days with being too much inside their own heads.
