Hi my name is Jenna and I live to create! There is something about creating new things with my own hands that puts a spark in my life! I love to sew, cook, craft, take photos, and DIY my heart out, all while having tones of fun. Here on the blog you will find plenty of step by step tutorials and easy to follow (mostly healthy weight loss) recipes. All with lots of photos because I love to document everything, especially the lives of my young kiddos. They are my world and I love exploring creativity with them, so I can not imagine them not being a huge part of this blog as well.
I started this blog in 2012 when I was in nursing school as a creative outlet, however as my life changed with my RN career, moving to a new city (Beautiful Kelowna, B.C.), buying our first home, having 2 babies, I somehow lost touch with blogging and lost my spark for being creative. This caused me to feel less alive… And it took me a while to figure out why. One day I was doing my “super intense” daily walk on the treadmill while watching YouTube (my normal gym routine) and I don’t know how I started watching videos about Elizabeth Gilbert (the author of Eat, Pray, Love). You know how watching YouTube videos can go… Anyways I have always been super inspired by other creative people and I was moved by something that she said. “What do you love doing so much that the words failure and success essentially become irrelevant?” And I thought about it for awhile (like 10 seconds) and I knew right then that I needed to make creativity a priority in my life and bring back the blog!
I am so excited that you have found my little corner of the inter webs and hope that you enjoy following along in our creative adventures! I strive to create content that is attainable and realistic, so that you are inspired to create beautiful things, food, memories and life too!
