It starts with a heart
and a special message meant just for you

Perhaps a few of you already know who and what this blog post is about?
Perhaps you too have received your very own heart
perhaps you follow the beautiful stories
and gasp over each new labor of love?

But sadly perhaps...
a few of you do not know who or what this post about?
What is Creative Breathing?
I think there is no short answer...
It's more than just about creating pretty things,
having a good eye, or a flare for design.
It's a way of life.

I want to start to share with you my favorite blogs, artists and friends.
As my own blog grows in popularity
I wonder to myself
"Chelsea Ann, why do they like your blog,
What makes it special?."
Comments are always so sweet and I learn so much about all of you through them
but there are so many of you who are just readers...
and this is fine
but it does make me wonder...
and this led me to wonder about my own blog reading style
for there are blogs I read and ponder and love
but never leave a comment
and others I can't seem to say enough...
well now I am rambling.
I guess what I'm saying Thank You for following along on my constant rambling
and for sharing my ups and downs
my joys about silly things
and my little creations.
Whatever brings you back
I am glad for it!

So back to Creative Breathing...

I can't say enough about this dear dear friend of mine
she has touched me in such a significant way
as an artist, friend, and even a mother when I needed
Her kindness, generosity, and wisdom
has truly helped me find my own inner
Creative Breather!

Chelsea Ann~What a beautiful tribute to sweet Elizabeth! I know she has been a special inspiration and encouragement to me as well. I have many blogs that I love to visit and read, but none have touched me the way hers has. She takes such care in all that she creates, from her hand crafts to her beautiful life stories. And on that note I would like to say how much I just adore your blog! It is such a special place to come and visit!
