Photo of me and Mr. Lovely by Justin Hackworth.
During and since Alt, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. It was so inspiring to be there and see people working and pushing themselves to do more and be better. And to me, the most inspiring people were the ones who knew without a shred of doubt who they were and what they wanted. And it got me thinking about answering those questions for myself.
The deal is, I consider Lovely Indeed to be a DIY-focused lifestyle blog. I wouldn’t just call it a DIY blog because I have such a passion for so many other things, which is why I love to share with you about our travels, the food we eat, the shops I love, our married life, and on and on. I can’t just choose to ignore those things because the sum of them all is what makes up my life with Mr. Lovely.
And beyond that, I just can’t bring myself to say that I’m a crafter. Please don’t get me wrong — I love crafts and I love crafty people. DIY is what got me started blogging. But if I really think about it, I would call myself a maker. Because I don’t just craft. In our house, we make everything, big and small. I make cupcakes. I make music. I make accessories and I make headboards. I make up songs and dances. I make my family happy. I make adventures.
I’m still figuring out what all this means and where I can channel it, but as far as I’m concerned, this right here is a pretty handy place to put it all. And so I hope you’ll keep sticking around with me to see what I make next. Because once you figure out you’re a maker, you kind of don’t ever want to stop. xoxo
