- Hi, I’m Renata. I’m a mom, a wife, and a teacher. I am also a writer, a painter, and a general creative soul. I love to write stories for children and poetry for adults. My favourite painting medium is acrylics. As well, I love to craft with my kids. While the goal is to have focused, daily creative time, that is not always possible with a five year old, three year old, and a one year old. That is why post it notes with sentence fragments, story ideas, and sketch ideas can be found on most surfaces in my home. This blog is a record of my attempts at sanity and at making me time for creativity while being a mommy of three.
