Why Create?

January 29, 2012

Yesterday, while driving home from the craft store thinking about my next project, I was reminded of a talk I heard in General Conference a few years ago, by President  Dieter F. Uchtdorf, entitled, "Happiness, Your Heritage"
It's a wonderful talk, and even those who aren't of the LDS faith, I believe would enjoy it as well.

This is my favorite part,

"Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment.
 We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands
 and mold it into something of beauty."

I feel like I could end this post right there.

I'm very lucky to have a supportive husband who enjoys my creations and doesn't mind the occasional trip to the craft store. I'm lucky to have friends and family that take the time to look at my scrapbooking and appreciate it.

But even if I didn't have those things, I would probably still create, because like the statement above, it truly does bring me satisfaction and fulfillment.

 I made a layout just for me. Not for any other reason, than I wanted to play with paper and write down my feelings about the relationship between Zoe and I currently.




































I had so much fun making this page last night. I hope you take the time to create this week. 
I've got some fun stuff I'm planning for February, including a BIG giveway weekend, so stay close by.

XOXO,
Holly & Co.
