Discovering Marie

Why Discover Marie?

In January I was making New Years Resolutions. I did not want to make the same old resolutions. Instead I looked at it as a way to discover myself. I decided that I really wanted to find out what interested me and what I was good at. I always considered myself not creative.

So the first thing I did was I signed up for a Wilton Method Course 1: Decorating Basics. It was held in February 2013. I LOVED it! I looked as forward to the last class as I did the first. It was so much fun baking and decorating. I made a cake for my cousin as an I Love You gift. I made a cake for friends as a Thank You gift. I was asked to make cupcakes for a little boy’s birthday party…they were SpongeBob themed. Seeing the look on his face when he saw them melted my heart. I made numerous batches of cupcakes that my co-workers enjoyed. Not to mention that My Love gets fancy cupcakes and cakes with fillings. This is okay with him as he has an incredible sweet tooth. The next cake I have in mind is a Tie Dye Cake with a Whipped Frosting.

The next thing I did was sign up for a basic sewing class this took place in March 2013.  See in 2012 My Love bought me a sewing machine and I was feeling guilt from not using it. I took the course and have been sewing ever since. Since then I have made stethoscope covers, pillow cases, curtains, chair covering and Toddler Pillows (this was a fundraiser for JDRF).

So this year for my birthday My Love bought me a digital camera. I LOVE it! My favorite pictures are of nature. I have taken pictures of the sun setting, the beach, clouds (my obsession), flowers and sewing or cooking projects.  I try to take the camera with me when I leave the house. As I never know when I will find a photograph-able moment. I truly am obsessed with clouds and textures.

I woke up  one day and decided I need to start a blog. Why? Something new I guess. Actually when I was younger I wrote poetry and wanted to be a reporter. I also considered writing a book when I was a teenager but there was no one to support me in this endeavor so I did as I was told and went into other things. I still want to write in some way. So a Blog seemed like a good idea. That has brought me to today. I am learning about blogging…through trial and error. I suppose I ought to read some on it though.

I have learned that I am creative and am having fun learning things along the way. It has been the smartest resolutions I have ever made. People continually ask me what I am doing now. Oh did I mention I also make my own yogurt? Yup…I do! I have but it on hold though for the summer months as the temperatures are too inconsistent. My favorite flavor so far is mixed berry.

So this is why I am blogging!



My resolutions for 2014 are as follows:

  • Learn to Crochet
  • Learn to Tatt
  • Try scrap-booking
  • Start writing book reviews
  • Learn to make my own perfume
  • Continue trying new things

This is in addition to the things I already am involved with.  It’s all about the fun and Discovering Marie!!
