Life is often pretty chaotic, isn’t it? Sometimes it feels like we spend a whole lot of time just trying to get through each day and not a lot of time being creativity. I’m right there with you. And I can help.
I’m Ellen Russell – a crafter, geek, gamer, and follower of Christ. I’m wife to a physics teacher and mom to three wonderful, crazy boys. We live in the mountains in Southern California. I spent a lot of my time getting creative in the kitchen with our family’s autoimmune problems, gaming with my husband, and concocting fun craft projects with my boys.
With three boys, I know how chaotic life can get. Sometimes just surviving the day to day makes it hard to even think of creating for the joy of it. The idea of doing crafts with your kids makes you think of headaches, messes, and even more chaos. Playdough in the carpet, paper glued to the table, and glitter…glitter everywhere (ugh).
But crafting doesn’t have to be complicated. Here at Create in the Chaos I make it easier for you to craft with your kids and help you find some time creating what you’re passionate about.
We have simple and affordable projects, activities, and printables. Looking for a quick ten minute craft to do with your kiddo? We have it. Want to print of a simple project for your kids to do by themselves? Got those, too! And you won’t find any projects with glitter around here.
And creating isn’t just for kids or “artsy” types. Make time to encourage your own creativity. Pick up a set of watercolors. Download a coloring page and grab some colored pencils. Paint. Sculpt. Make.
