I had a very long conversation with one of my old roommates about creativity yesterday. Creativity can be discouraging. I love, love, love to make things... but if it doesn't turn out exactly the way it looked in my head, then I get discouraged. Anyway, I have been feeling this a lot lately about my projects. So, in light of others feeling the same way I am, I want to give some "shout outs" to my very creative friends... here it goes! (click on there names and check out there talent!)

Sarah Maxwell English- This girl is on her way to being a famous artist. No joke people. Right now she is designing children's clothing for JC Penny. Check out her work- amazing. I am very proud to call her my friend!
Sarah Carpenter- A very sweet friend, and a fellow stay at home Mom. Sarah and I share sewing and crafting as our hobbies. She is starting a new business selling Burpies and cute wall letters!
Sara Harrow (my Mom!)- Well, you might have already noticed the embroidery on the dresses that I make... My Mom has a great business in Colorado called By Faith Alone. She does custom embroidery and also has an etiquette column in Northern Colorado Women's magazine.
Andrea Spiceland- I met Andrea when I married Jeff. She and her husband are Jeff's long time friends! Andrea is creative in a different kind of way. She is very wise... right now on her blog she is teaching others how to save money. She does a better job than I could do talking about it, so go over and check it out! (this is one area of creativity that I am seriously lacking! :) )
Kelly- We have never met, but I know for sure that she is a great girl! Kelly is starting a new business designing blogs. I have mentioned her before in a previous post... but now she has an official site that you can go visit! She is also giving away a free header, so hurry up and leave her a comment so she will choose you... that's how I go this cute page! :)

So, if you know someone that you want to add to my list, leave a comment so that we can all enjoy there work! Don't be modest... add yourself! :)

Emily, for every project that turns out great there are four or five in the closet (or trash) Don't be to hard on yourself!

Thanks for the mention! Can't wait to see you guys next week!

Thanks for the "shout out", Em! You are such a sweet friend. :) I wish that we lived closer so that we could craft together. I am so in-awe of all of your talents.

P.S. Did you notice that 3 of your "shout outs" went to people named Sara(h)? Coincidence - I think not. Ha ha ha
