As we turn this corner of life, as a wife... I am renewed. Having an involved husband leaves a few more hours for simple pleasures... A chance to sit, to ponder, to finish a project. A chance to concentrate on MY homemaking role and not the dual role I've shouldered for a year and a half.
I'll take time to create. Humans thrive on creation. (Ha Ha Ha... laugh ya'll, I know... 6 kids... Bahhahahahah!...) Women thrive to create smiles, comfortable homes, a place to feel loved and safe. We seek to create beauty all around us... and so I seek to beautify my home. (and right now I'm cracking up because somehow my sidebar adds have hair dye commericals... too many references to create, shoulder and color... sorry folks!)
I want to create a kitchen that will function for 8 AND be beautiful AND affordable. If you want to create a budget kitchen makeover using "builder cabinets" like this check out these ideas from BHG.COM crazy good ideas:) I also enjoyed seeing 25 ways to redo your cabinet faces on your own... like this saweet lady... check out this budget cabinet facelift site on BHG.com
This year I will be creating beauty in each room. So much of life can be caught up with routine maintenance. Maintaining is okay for a time and season... but to create brings satisfaction, renewal of hope and spirit, and confidence in dormant abilities. Melissa's Beautiful Life posts are a great way to get inspired. Head over there while she's out enjoying Blissdom... and sit in her Inspired Room awhile.
What do you want to create?
