Where Should I Start?

Life for me was planned out. I had a plan on what I wanted and where I wanted to go. Suddenly I found out I was having a baby and my world flipped upside down….at least that is what I thought. However, sometimes things happen for a reason because having my son gave me a new look at life, a new path that pointed me in a different direction (blogging is one).  It’s funny how things that can seem so scary or was a complete detour route in my plan can become something beyond what I expected in life.

 What Can I Say About Myself?

Shanice Bannis - About Me | City of Creative Dreams

  I am Canadian! Born and Raised! I am a British Columbia girl living in an Ontario World. But that is not all… I am a young mom to one handsome, cute-tastic son (expect many momma tips and ideas), older sister to three siblings (one of my sisters has autism) and a single parent/working momma. I have a diploma in interior decorating and wedding planning, became a playwright and have one play under my belt. Also, there has always been a passion and love for writing novels. That just about sums me up. Oh, I often hear that I look like I am twelve, fourteen or sixteen (now upgraded to looking eighteen on good days). Looks can be deceiving. This baby face of mine can be a blessing and a curse. However, I am proud to say that I am not in my teens anymore. Sitting proudly in my really early twenties.

 Why I Started This Site?

 

Originally the reason why I created this blog was that I was a stay at home mom in need of a new activity to do on my spare time in between my son’s naps (as if he naps) and taking care of my siblings. Since then I continued to love my little piece of the web and enjoyed writing and creating new things.  If I wasn’t organizing (yes that is being creative too), I was writing a story or a play or acting or re-designing somewhere in my home. My room, my home, my day, my sketchbook, my laptop has always been a canvas for my creative ideas.Having a blog allows me to share everything I love. I want to share things that excite me, cures an organizing disaster, gives you something to experiment, gives you something to make life a little easier or more fun but most importantly that inspires you like it has inspired me.
  By no means am I perfect nor is my life but that is what makes it a journey! My life will forever be imperfectly perfect. I am finding my way as a mom, sister, blogger and overall person. When life closes doors and pulls rugs out from me, I am still determined to climb my way through life. I will keep getting back up on my feet just like you. So, I hope you find some inspiration, some design, and some laughs. Most importantly I hope you find something you love worth creating or implementing in your own life while following me on my journey. I am excited to show you my life as I create my city of creative dreams!
