Welcome to Creative Breathing. A place where Cute As Can Be characters tell the stories of my life. While this is no longer an active blog, I do hope you will enjoy sifting through the many crafts and tutorials that can be found here. I am thankful to the many inspiring women who took this creative journey with me, and I know you will feel the same lightness of heart they gifted to me.
