Happy Birthday A Beautiful Mess

One of my favorite blogs, and one of my biggest inspirations, is A Beautiful Mess blog. I didn’t start reading their blog until February of this year, but it became a huge inspiration in my life. This year has already been a roller coaster for me: dealing with college, work, and pregnancy, it was probably the most stressed out I had ever been. I wasn’t being creative at all, just going through the motions. But finding A Beautiful Mess truly helped rekindle my creative spirit.

I’m 39 weeks and 1 day… which means my little Penelope will be here any time now. I’m so incredibly excited. Since I’ve been on maternity leave, I’ve been decorating her space like crazy with paper garlands, collage paintings, and more, which I’ll post pictures of soon. Mostly I’ve been taking lots of naps, reading lots of blogs, and waiting. The waiting is the hardest part!

Reading A Beautiful Mess’s birthday story on their blog today really helped me remember why I wanted to blog in the first place. I love to share my art and creativity with the world, and this is such an easy way to do it. I can’t wait to share these things with my daughter. I want to encourage her to be creative, and I want to show her all the beautiful and inspiring things in the world.

So happy birthday, ABM! You inspire me!
