About

I am Christine and I created a little blog called SimplyFOuRus to share our daily lives with my Parents and Grandparents who live several hours away. I thought this would be a great way for them to see all of the exciting things going on in our crazy little world, on a daily basis! I didn’t want them to miss out on the kiddo’s growing up! Well, Once I maxed out my blog space, and saw amazing numbers of people from all over the planet checking in on us, I knew I had to do something. So, LiveCreative101 came about to not only share those special moments but to also inspire others to make everyday a special day in the lives of their loved ones. You’ll see how easy it is to have fun and spark the excitement of each individual in your home. You’ll also get easy step by step DIY projects, recipes and LOTS more!LiveCreative101 is a combination of yummy things, home DIY, healthy living, decorating, kid projects galore, family life, and you can’t forget about adventure. What would life be like without adventure! Let’s just say it’s everything but the kitchen sink…although you may see pictures of it! Our blog is a great way for us to share, inspire, and learn from our attempts at tackling projects one day at a time.I am an extremely proud mother to three amazing beauties, ages 9, 7, & 5, and an absolutely wonderful little guy who just turned 4! I am blessed beyond belief to have a husband who is as passionate about life, family, DIY’ing and making our house a cozy home, as I am! Let’s not forget about our vintage Shasta, too! So glad you stopped by! Put your feet up, grab a cup of tea and enjoy browsing the little corner of our world! Sit back and stay a while. Soon you’ll find yourself trying new things!
