Welcome to Where Boggers Create!!!

LIFE! I love it!..........I've always been one to jump out of bed and say Ta Dah! Here we go... And living everyday life with a sense of celebration! I am so thankful that the good Lord gave me an abundance of energy and a genuine love for life, people, nature, animals and all things creative.

I am constantly drawing inspiration from places I've been, experiences I've had, and people I meet. I love my farm! I dream of artful creative collections and spaces both indoors and out! It's about a lifestyle; rustic yet refined, out in the country; a casual elegance where I feel Gods presence everywhere!
(my studi0)
We're in the throes of yet another fancy chicken coop! I love my beloved birds! They are so darling, and I cannot think of a better wakeup call than hearing a gallant Roosters early morning call! Life on the farm isn't always easy-----------but it is always rewarding!
A place where we can live, grow, love and be loved. Often times a very special place to work through life's challenges; it's ups and downs!
(Welcome... come on in to my studio)
A place where we can live, grow, love and be loved. Often times a very special place to work through life's challenges; it's ups and downs!
As we, and I, find ourselves in uncertain times and many changes, it does give one the opportunity to take a personal inventory, reflect, and then put into practice what's really most important, sincere, and real. I know that for me I'm entering into a new season in my life, and I want to review my past, both the good and not so good, embracing it all and not waiting for the storm to pass but to learn to dance in the rain!
A bend in the road is not the end of the road as long as you make the turn. I want to learn new things, be an even better friend, I want to slow down. I'm learning to spend more time on what really matters, and less time on what "I thought" mattered. I want to stop and watch the mother bird as she flies with a worm to her nest to nurture her babies, I want to look intently into my horses eyes, I want to see how many fire fly's I can count at evenings dusk. (come and sit... relax and get inspired)
I want to listen to the frogs for hours! Eat more s'mores, make more bon fires, and serve my girlfriends delicious lunches and listening to what's important to them and have lots of giggles! I'm learning to live with less-----------yet I find it's MORE! Oh, I'm growing up! Some days I'm a little girl in a big girl body! Life is good!

I want to listen to the frogs for hours! Eat more s'mores, make more bon fires, and serve my girlfriends delicious lunches and listening to what's important to them and have lots of giggles! I'm learning to live with less-----------yet I find it's MORE! Oh, I'm growing up! Some days I'm a little girl in a big girl body! Life is good! Where you see further down the road, you're more rooted in the land, where you have community with your neighbors, and you stop to breath in the fresh air. Life happens more simply--------and you simply live------ a more beautiful life!
I want to conquer denial, embrace what's in front of me, and simply let go! Trusting in Gods wisdom and grace!

"Come to the edge!
I can't I'm afraid.

Come to the edge!
I can't I'll fall.

Come to the edge!
I went; He took my hand, and then we flew!"

Someday, when I meet my maker and he takes my face in his hands I want to hear him say”Well done my good and faithful servant, well done!

Blessings from the farm and never stop growing, learning, and loving and always follow your dreams!
Thank you Karen for hosting such a wonderful party, don't forget to visit other blogger's spaces!

What a gorgeous place and space! I would feel like creating, surrounded buy such beauty. I especially appreciated your inspirational words. You have clearly been through a lot of life's challenges and learned to face them head on. You also have such a wonderful sense of what is important. It's not what we thought was important at twenty, is it?

My daughter and I have a "young" blog and would love to have you visit, if you wish. She and I have been making jewelry together for fifteen years but also have other interests. I love vintage paper crafts and she loves vintage fashion...and we both love estate sales!

Thanks for giving us a peek at your site and for sharing words from your heart. Isn't this fun?

I loved reading your post and looking at your photos. But to be honest I really enjoyed your words and could feel your faith in the lord. I am new to the blog world (2 wks!) but in time I want to be able to write as beautifully as you. Bless you for starting my day with such inspiration! You were a gift to me from the lord this morning and I thank you and him both~ Sherry F.

I am going to go and read some more of your blog and become a follower...
