In a world of uncertainty how do we know we are doing exactly what we should be doing or have to do or are we just simply doin’ it? Do we have a path that we can see or feel? Let’s stitch a little trust into the handmade while adding a dash of gratitude and humor.
Writing about all the things going on in the world right now seems redundant. Let’s call a spade a spade – we’re all LIVING it in some way shape or form. I’ll spare you any quarantine tips and simply share how Bound to be Creative has been pedaling forward – pre & post quarantine.

Handmade with Trust
All my children are home for the summer and there’s been interesting conversation around our kitchen table. A lot of history-in-the-making chatter as I call it – some deep discussions that lead to respectful arguing and some not. There’s not only laughter that surrounds our conversation but also moments of silence that often win the battle.

Your Own Rewards Program
Do you ever simply just pat yourself on the back for a job done? Rewarding yourself even just a little bit can brighten a day. Who said you had to wait for someone to say “good job!” Nope. Giving ourselves permission of awesomeness is okay. My personal reward program consists of sitting on my front porch sipping a glass of wine thinking about nada, nothing, zilch. You know all those stores that ask at the checkout counter, “Are you a rewards member here?” Now you can say with confidence, “No, I have my own program.”
We should learn to take genuine pride in a job well done and not expect praise for one simply carried out.Gina Barreca
Self Care Bike Break
As the ol’ saying goes “it’s like riding a bike”. Taking a self-care break is not as easy as getting back on a bike. It takes practice! Sometimes they can be mini-breaks or big breaks. These breaks can be taken anytime, anywhere for any reason! My most recent “big” self care break took my husband and I to Decorah, Iowa as we biked the 12 mile Trout Run Trail through the country side. Note: helmet is on order and this handmade reversible visor is available in my online shop in your color choices.
Don’t forget about dad!
Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21
Thanks for hanging out with me! Until next time, keep smiling under all those masks!
