Describe your side. When I refer to expression, it can range from doodling in your journal, home decorating, creating a presentation for your job or organization, to singing, painting, or playing a sport.

Write as much as you can about the forms of creative expression that you regularly engage in. Go on to describe the history of your creative expression(s), and how you think your creative side is a part of your personality and outlook on life.

If you absolutely don’t think you have a creative side, write about how you would like to be creative, and what do you think is keeping you from being able to express yourself in creative ways.

There are several aspects to my creative side. I was actually talking about that tonight with my dad, in fact. Not about what I’m creative with, but how we all are creative in my family, in our own ways. That we had to find the perfect person who helped us to channel that.

I’m a digital scrapbooker for one. I love to take pictures and I love to journal. They play perfectly together with scrapbooking. It plays better with digital because I’m able to reuse the kits and they’re usually a lot cheaper than traditional kits.


The pictures are from 2010, and I can still remember the moments that inspired the pictures. Ethan still gets a little razzing because he nearly puked cleaning out the pumpkin.

When I started taking pictures (I wouldn’t call it photography. I’m not that good), I was just a little kid. I’d go through film like it was water but my parents supported my habit. They were amazing about it. I still feel their support with it, and I love that, and really do appreciate it.

Now, lately, I’ve also taken to decorating my planner as well, using my insane amount of pens, :lol:. That’s so much fun!

Tell us about your most beloved family dish?

Our family dish that’s required is my Hoosier Pie. It’s a big chocolate chip cookie, basically, but my family loves it! 😀 It’s becoming my specialty, I think!



  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 c. English walnuts
  • 1 stick butter (melted and cooled)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 c. chocolate chips
  • 1 lg. unbaked shell


  1. Add eggs and butter, mix together well.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, pour into pie shell.
  3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

I play up with the chocolate chips and use white chips, or butterscotch, or . I also usually use pecans, since I space out and grab them instead of the walnuts
