Life etc.

Welcome to my New Home

Thanks for stopping by!  I suppose a little introduction is in order; I’m Kris, your host, resident artist, crafter and now…blogger! (a play on my initials, KGB) was born out of my desire to document and share my growth as an artist, hopefully inspiring others to get past the fear of starting and just DO IT.  Make something!  Draw something!  Have fun!!!

I’ve been working online for several years now doing freelance marketing and design.  While there is a degree of creative freedom in that work, it just can’t compare (for me) to the organic feeling of making something with my own hands.  Feeling a paint brush between my fingers as I swirl different colors together, stitching the details on a softie – that’s when I feel most alive.

Over the last year or so, I’ve put living joyfully as a higher priority.  It’s so easy to get caught up in work stuff, running errands, my somehow always messy house.  By keeping a blog, I’m looking forward to sharing the creative work I do and connecting with other artists who inspire me while hopefully inspiring my readers to explore their own passions.  By putting my goals out there in this wonderful community, I get the added bonus of being held accountable.  So if you don’t see a post from me for a while or just see me writing about being too busy, too stressed, too *too*, feel free to give me a nudge to get me back on path.

Happy crafting!
