Hooray Is Here To Stay!

Hello out there...I'm Sandee!
There are so many ideas and so much creative energy  just stewing and churning in my brain. I need an outlet ASAP! What better way to get it all out then to start a blog right?!!!
The premise of this blog is creativity and was inspired by a talk called "Happiness, Your Heritage" by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf (a leader of the LDS Church). In it he says that we are made to create  and can be creative in all aspects of life.  I love this and know being creative bring joy to my life ...whether it's painting something, playing chalk with my kids, or simply making dinner for my family. 

President Uchtdorf says...
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create. You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.
Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty—and I am not talking about the process of cleaning the rooms of your teenage children. 
If you are a mother, you participate with God in His work of creation—not only by providing physical bodies for your children but also by teaching and nurturing them. 
The bounds of creativity extend far beyond the limits of a canvas or a sheet of paper and do not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano. Creation means bringing into existence something that did not exist before—colorful gardens, harmonious homes, family memories, flowing laughter."

My favorite way to be creative is to make things that celebrate those around me. So the name Hooray seemed fitting. 
This little venture will be quite the learning process for me, but that is exactly what I'm going for! The chance to use my creative side, challenge myself and grow in the process. And if I can inspire others in some way too, then that's just a plus!

I'm excited...
nervous...
giddy...
and ready!

So keep an eye out for Hooray!!!
