I don't really remember there ever being a time when I wasn't making something, even if it was just making a mess as a small child! I credit my mother, RuthAnn Lavin, with encouraging and modeling everyday creativity for me. I was always making, and sometimes selling, small things as a child, but I discovered along the way that what I really like most is helping other people figure stuff out too. Creativity has too narrow a definition in some people's worlds, and I really believe that if you find the form of creativity that you were designed by your Creator to express, you'll be a much happier person.
When people ask me what I do for a living, my standard reply is, "I make things and I write about it." If they show interest, then I elaborate, but that still strikes me as the best description of my work day. I have a wonderful studio which includes space for both my work table and my writing desk.
