Donna at Funky Junk Interiors shared her story of how she came to be where she is today, being the creative person that she so obviously is. This woman is such an inspiration, her projects are so amazing. I had assumed she has always been this artistic, design guru who can turn trash into treasure in her sleep, but as it turns out, that is not the case. Her story encourages me to keep on doing what I'm doing. You see, I used to be a very creative person. I used to create art. Then life got in the way and I stopped. Now, I'm staying home raising my baby, we are broke, and I have been forced to get creative again. Thank goodness. First, creative with resources, with teaching my son, then creativity through diy projects, and maybe soon, creativity for the sake of creativity again. It sounds so cliche', but being a stay-at-home-mother is actually allowing me to "find" myself again. I thought that I would be lost in Motherhood, but just the opposite has happened. Being broke is tough, but truth be told, this is a wonderful life, and I wouldn't trade this time with my son for anything. The fact that my creative side is slowly awakening from its slumber is just a wonderful added bonus.
