Easy Ways to{#cre8time}with your Family


Kitty Nap

Life can get SO busy.



*Sports & afterschool activities


*Occasional Self Time( yup, a mom needs some alone  time)


It can ALL get a little overwhelming sometimes. That is why I fell in love with this…


“CRE8TIME is a movement, a movement supported by a group of people who want to make a positive social change. As our lives become increasingly crowded with “responsibilities,” we tend to ignore ourselves and find it difficult to justify creative pursuits; they seem “selfish” and are often the first things we discard.  It’s time to reclaim our creativity!  It is designed to help people recover eight hours a month and devote it to their particular craft, and to create a place for them to share their experiences – the joys, lessons, and results – with the creative community at large.”

How Cool is this? An organization that encourages you to bring back  CREATIVITY into your life! Everyone needs a little creativity in there life. It helps you clear your mind, heal your heart, get closer to your loved ones , and get back to the BASICS! So AWESOME!! I adore this! To find out more information about cre8time, and to join this movement,  you can visit their site HERE.

Here is how our family has been putting a little CRE8TIME into our lives this month.

Me, well….you know me. I just love playing with anything colorful when I have a chance! It is so relaxing and just puts a smile on my face!
