So, here it is! My new blog, am so excited! And I hope some of my excitement will rub off on whoever is reading this to create some loyal followers for the long run.
This week's blog is just an introduction for the launch of this here venture, 'Just Creative Julia'. For those who know me, I love using my creative skills, be it for writing, crafting or simply using it to hear from God in interesting ways.
So my plans for this are just to have fun with my writing and crafting to start with. Ideally, my long term aim is to establish myself as an official 'published' writer and hopefully build up a career/income from this. Further down the line I also hope to open a craft shop on here full of lovely hand made items.
Coming up... Next week I will be showing off some crafty makes for Mother's Day including gifts such as a hand painted mug using Sharpie pens, (as pictured, I bought my set from Rymans, £9.99) a gingerbread man shortbread biscuit with some handmade packaging and of course a hand made card to go with it. I'll be putting together a basic DIY tutorial if you fancy having a go yourself.
Further articles to come will be 'What does your book case say about you?' and another entitled 'My Secret Resting Place'. Watch this space!
As I am expecting my first baby, a boy, in the next few weeks, (estimated due date is 14/4!) don't be surprised if I go a little quiet on you! The main articles mentioned above may go on the back burner while I write a few personal blogs about expectant life as a new Mum. A new chapter of my life, scary but of course, exciting!
My aim is to keep up with a main blog once a week at the very least so please do check in with us to see the latest. I welcome your comments, suggestions, advice, anything you wish to share. So get in touch!
