I (like all the ladies before me) am in love with your photos and the sweet simplicity of you blog.

I find my best creative outlet to be when I get the itch to organize. I turned into a tornado, and at times you would be amazed at what I can accomplish in a short amount of time.

P.S. I follow your blog! :)

caretakingcouple said...

OK, I am inspired to figure out how this google friend connect, etc. works because this is just the kind of blog I want to start my morning with! Leave it to WWC to introduce me to you, Koralee : )

What is my creative bliss? Hmm...can reading be creative bliss? I am so inspired by books and music...and magazines and blogs now, as well!

As for what I personally create with bliss...

A special moment captured on film/digital
A heartfelt letter, poem, journal/blog entry
An organic essential oil blend
A new soap/scrub/lip balm/cream, etc. recipe
A colorful collage
A good habit (daily excercise/writing)

Those are a few favorites. Thank you for putting your heart and soul into this blog, and for sharing it with others!

Sewn With Grace said...

I'm not surprised you are featured at WWC, because you are one talented lady! I love following your blog. I enjoy sewing, quilting and knitting the most, but I do love to cook and garden as well. Not enough hours in the day for sure. Have a blessed Monday!

DebraLSchubert said...

You know how I feel about your blog. It's one of the greatest treats I give myself! I popped over to WWC and left a comment.

You are filled with creative bliss! And so nice to see Women Who Create took notice of one of the very best - Y-O-U!

I find creative bliss in baking, cooking, knitting, blogging, discovering and sharing new artisans in my boutique, and art time with my crumb!

Happy new week to you!

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Carousel Dreams said...

Well, I will certainly be following your blog...what inspires me? Bloggers like you, with beautiful pictures and inspiring messages...oh and creating my own blog - it is wonderful to have my creative juices flowing again. I am having so much fun x

Magpie's Mumblings said...

oops...forgot to say what my creative bliss is (got so excited about your pretty pictures that I forgot!). Hmmm...it would have to be having time to sit with a cat on my lap and a new craft book to read, along with a cup of something hot and my favourite music in the background. So easy to zone out!

Maria said...

Hi Koralee! What an honor to be featured at the WWC - and so sweetly deserved~
Your blog is the coming together of photography, creativity and sweet sentiment. It is loved by many ♥

I adore vintage needlepoint (love seeing your grandmother's pretty stitches)
I have a counted cross-stitch in progress ... (a little red-birdie ;o)
and find myself 'stealing' moments to enjoy my old loves of sewing and needlework. Full-time teaching takes much of my daytime hours and a great deal of my creative juices.

I am amazed at the beautiful handmade things people sell in their Etsy shops, the DIY projects and amazing baking that I see out here.
What a wonderful post today, Koralee~
*Maria*
ps. And have totally enjoyed following :)

Maria said...

Hi Koralee! I have only been following for about a month or so, but I check daily to get a little reminder of how enchanting life can be.
I find bliss in doing little things to make the world around me more lovely, creating things for others, and spending as much time with my family as possible.

Helen McGinn said...

Wonderful site; I'm going back for a longer linger....my creative bliss is baking, cooking, making dolls, badges, cards...anything that takes my fancy on that particular day and that I can make from recycled stuff around the house. I'm a follower! ;O)

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

I just found that magazine last week-Bought it as fast as I could. There was one picture in the magazine that reminded me of you, I could so see you in that or any other magazine.
I went over and said "Hi!"

My creative bliss is cooking, baking and sewing- The baking has become a challenge due to having to take gluten out of my diet two years ago-But I am always up for a challenge.
What makes me most blissful is photography and hiking with my hubby.

Congratulations Koralee-This is so amazing!

Robin~♥
P.S. I'm so a follower~!

My creative bliss is packing & shipping for my etsy shop.

I LOVE the process of wrapping things in old french newspaper, tying them with bakery string and adding little vintage scraps in glassine envelopes.

Notes on a blotter said...

Congrats on being featured on WWC!!!!! My bliss is taking up fancies, discards, everyday items, and creating a bit here and there - painting, drawing, poems, twisting a bit of wire here, adding a bit of fluff there, imagining that each stitch, stir, dab is actually a prayer of love, gratitude, health, kindness, JOY! which silently whispers to me and fellow travelers on the road of life of it's gifts. I look forward to seeing even more sweet bluebirds faces. Viva La pájaroazul!! and THANK YOU!!

OceanDreams said...

Koralee, congrats on being featured in WWC! I have a little secret...I actually work for Stampington & Co., the publishing company of this publication.

House of Giggles said...

I'm so happy for you, being featured in wwc! It's no surprise at all! You are amazing :)
Thanks again for all your beautiful photos and inspirations. I hope you had a fun time around the thrift stores the other day! Wouldn't it be great if we bumped into each other one day ? :) It's quite possible! My main little shop is in Ladner. Anywhere near you?
hmm...my bliss.....I hardly know where to start. I love snuggling into bed with a little boy on either side of me, keeping me nice and warm :) I love when they giggle and laugh with each other. It's definitely my bliss. But on a whole other note, I love the excitement in the thrift shop hunt...wondering what lovely little treasure I might find :) I also love the satisfaction of creating something lovely that makes me feel like I'm still "me".
That was a really random comment post...haha
Hope you're having a wonderful day!

Congratulations on being featured at Where Women Create . My creative bliss is spending time in my little "sparrow studio" :-D

Kathy said...

Congrats - that's awesome! I especially love the creation by your grandmother. My grandmother taught me to tat and other things and now I'm teaching my granddaughter to knit, crochet and sew! I'd love the magazine! Thanks, Kathy

Creative bliss for me is a quiet summer afternoon with the studio windows open, a breeze coming in, good music playing on the iPod, and a desktop messy with paint, paper, ribbon and embellies!

Congratulations! That is wonderful. I visited WWC and the Bright Side Project. I've been a follower for a while. Your blog is beautiful.

I'm really enjoying your blog! I found you on WWC, such a great inspiration to me. I'm a quilter. I love all things textiles. Your photos are especially pretty! I just finished a very sweet baby quilt for a friend, which I will give to her tomorrow. Today I am in bed, watching the Olympics, Facebooking all my Canadian friends, and trying to recover from a cold virus!

Hi Koralee, congratulations on that beautiful feature at WWC. It was so fun to read and know that I have been blessed with your friendship.
My creative bliss is making things grow in the garden and creating a place that my family loves to spend time in and that friends can visit and enjoy with my husband and I. Then to take pictures of that garden and share on my blog so that other's may enjoy it too. Like my mother who lives in another state and my sisters and brothers who live away as well.
i am an avid follower.

Congrats on being featured in WWC. I have not missed an issue since the first one came out. I read them cover to cover. My creative bliss is photography. I got my first camera for Christmas when I was 12. I began to take photography seriously about 8 years ago and haven't looked back since. I also get great satisfaction from mixed media artwork, rubberstamping and gardening. All these give me the creative outlet that I need to be the person I am.

Hi There,
Your blog is really inspiring. Your talent and color palate is really dazzling. I have left a message at WW Create.
My creative bliss is in the planning of what I am going to do next (actually dreaming sometimes). I thrive on that. Love moving from one thing to the next. Hate to get stuck on just one thing over and over again. I believe this is so very genetic as my dear late mom possessed the same creating bug.
Keep up the good work here and God Bless,
Legacy Crafter

My creative bliss is all about the designing of a project. I love to select fabrics and colors and edit, edit, edit until I have the exact right combination - at least for my eye.

Love your blog, and love your beautiful photography. I am just across the border and a little east of you. My creative bliss (right now) is photography ...... or maybe it's sewing. It is a real toss up. But once the growing season starts here in Eastern Washington, my bliss will be my flowers and vegetables. Thanks!

Your blog is absolutely gorgeous, Koralee! I am now a happy follower of your blog. How wonderful to be featured on WWC! Congratulations to you!!

My creative bliss bounces from decorating my home to participating in creative art swaps to photographing my granddaughters who are always the best models & ever changing.

All the best,
Sherry

My creative bliss can start with an idea that a blogger has shared...especially if it has a tutorial! I like small, simple projects that are fun and quick. I love to sew and do all kinds of craft projects! My mind is always thinking of what to make next! I love your blog!♥

Congrats! What an honor to be featured at WWC! You are my first stop each morning when I get my coffee! I love your sunny outlook and talent with your camera. I'm grateful you don't think you'll run out of blog inspiration because I won't run out of interest in stopping by either! V

I must apologize, I am a blog stalker. Your blog brings a great amount of joy to my day. I guess I don't comment because I feel what I have to say doesn't mean much. My bliss is working in my studio creating cards for family and friends. Even though I don't think they are a thing of great beauty, they get rave reviews. The important thing is I have fun in the process and I am giving a part of myself. That's really what your blog is, a part of you. Thanks for sharing a part of yourself with everyone. Have a wonderful week, the start of a brand new month!

I don't have one "creative bliss" Koralee...sometimes I feel I need to narrow down my creativeness! Oh well....a little bit of everything!
