Passionate about Creativity
My name is Carla – and I am the “Glam Wife” behind the blog “Creative Life of a Glam Wife”! In a nutshell, I’m a wife and mother (2 boys), beauty and cooking blogger, Beauty addict, Creative cook, Fashion junkie, Avid digital and hybrid scrapbooker, Long-time couponer, amongst many other things! But in ALL things – I’m passionate about creativity~!
Creative Life of a Glam Wife began just this past January, after heeding the advice of several different friends and family encouraging me to start a blog! A culmination of many of my passions funneled into this website – which has taken on a life of its own. I was previously using Facebook to share recipes, beauty tips, posting about digital scrapbooking etc, when I realized a blog would be a much better forum to share all of my little tidbits.
Once I decided to do a blog – it was onto the naming process! Which was no small feat. The name had to be perfect, it had to be catchy, and yet describe what I’m about in a nutshell, and for those of you who know me – I’m not good at doing “nutshells”! (haha) I was talking about this with one of my girlfriends when we started brainstorming and she asked me what I’d want in my blog name. And I told her “Well, I love pink, I love bling, I’m a beauty junkie and passionate about creativity.” And she said to me “How about Creative Life of a Glam Wife?” And right away I KNEW – this was it~! This was my name! And immediately got to work developing the website and the content for it!
The main focus of my blog is Beauty and Cooking; although I have (and will do) articles on other topics such as Fashion, Digital Scrapbooking, Staying Glam on a Bargainista Budget, and Life in General. Sharing beauty tips/trends, experimenting with products, product reviews and comparisons, and “how-to” articles, all while staying “Glam” on a budget. As well as, cooking tips I’ve learned over the years, some of my tried and true recipes and even some time-saving budget-friendly meals as well. Also sharing recipes that are geared toward a healthier, more natural diet! As well – sharing tips, projects and techniques for doing Digital and Hybrid Scrapbooking and sharing advice and tips I’ve gained over the years as a parent! Creativity is one of the key ingredients to many of the topics I’ve discussed and I’ll show you just how to infuse that into your life!
So far, its been an amazing journey. Before I started blogging, I never realized just how much fun it would be. Creating each and every article for my blog, doing the research, experimenting with different products/recipes and having a forum in which to share it all! And on top of this, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the relationships I’ve been building through my Blog, Facebook and Twitter! I think that’s probably the biggest surprise of all – all the new and cherished relationships that I’ve been blessed with! I very much appreciate all of my readers, fellow bloggers, and businesses I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and socializing with! Wow – what a journey, and its only JUST beginning~! With that in mind, I’m SO excited for all the new things to come for my Blog Readers – many fun, new and very unique articles in the very near future!
I’m so excited to announce that Deborah is going to be “putting me to work” making some homemade body products! I have no experience in making body products, although I very much love using them! I recently started buying homemade body products from a dear friend and I’m SO happy with them, I’ve stopped shopping at Bath and Body Works all together! The quality is amazing, and being able use more natural products is also so important . And of course, Nature’s Garden scent choices don’t hurt either~! I’ll be documenting the whole process on my blog with a series of detailed posts and pictures – so look for that in the near future! I just want to close with a BIG thank you to Nature’s Garden for suggesting this fun and unique partnership~! Hugs and Blessings to all! xoxo
