About Me

I'm Charmain, a creator,
a musician,
an inventor,
a family history enthusiast,
a wife,
and a mother to three darling Little Munchkins.

I love to create.  I need to create.

Even as a little girl, I had an overwhelming drive to be crafty...sewing, crochet, embroidery, needlework, papercraft, you name it!  My favorite book was the Childcraft volume Make and Do - if it was in that book I made it. 

For me creativity is fulfilling, calming, and necessary for my soul.

"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.
No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create.
You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty."

"We all have talents and gifts, every one of us.
The bounds of creativity extend far beyond the limits of a canvas or a sheet of paper and do not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano.
Creation means bringing into existence something that did not exist before - colorful gardens, harmonious homes, family memories, flowing laughter."

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf
