About me :-)

I am a happily married stay at home mom.  My son was born in 2005.  It has been neat watching my son grow into an individual.  I can’t say that I always enjoy staying home with him, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I have a teaching degree in elementary education.  I love working with kids and teaching 🙂  I plan on homeschooling my son through high school – he is just starting kindergarten in 2010/2011.

I love making things, although I don’t have as much time to play as I would like 🙂  I have tried too many types of crafts to list them all!  Right now I have been trying to make charts of the heirloom beaded ornaments that my great Grandma taught my Grandma, who taught my Mom, who taught me to make.

I like genealogy and history- when I was in high school I went to the state archives and researched a ghost town from the 1800’s, and was able to visit the remainder of the cemetery.  I have also been trying to make a scrapbook of the history of my family’s heirlooms including pictures of the people that they are connected to.

I like photography, and would love to learn more about it.  I also love trying new foods, and cooking dinner is something I typically look forward to.

My house is sometimes messy, although I have been trying to reverse that trend!  Sometimes I just feel like I’m cleaning on a treadmill – no matter how long I keep at it I still haven’t really gotten anywhere!

I chose random creativity as the name for this blog since I am very creative, but often quite random.  There have been a few projects that I have started, set aside, and then finished a few years later.

  1. I would like to use a silhouette painting that you did as a source of inspiration for my high school art class. Could I please know what your name is so that I can give the credit where it is due on my project? Thank you – Kylee.

  2. […] Rachel Peters, author of Random Creativity, has shared a colourful tutorial with the Handmade Christmas Campaign. Thank you! […]

  3. Wow, I love genealogy as well. I have older kids who still keep me busy. My house is not as clean as it should be, but no one has died from dirt and messiness. My mother use to say, my house is a mess but my children are happy. If you’ve come to look at my house, make an appointment, If you’ve come to visit me, come on in. I have been dabbling for years in various crafts from ceramics, rubber stamping, to crocheting and lastly…. using my Silhouette. Thank you for your help. I am electronically challenged and your pintrest posts help me out
