Jump over to Mama Kat's to read more of her prompts for today's writer's workshop.
Well I knew exactly what I would write about when I read the prompt "What do you love to create?" but then I read Mama Kat's post and I thought oh she will think I am copying her so I will take mine a step further.
She says she loves to create memories and that is also my answer. I am BIG on creating traditions from us going to the same beach every year, going to the same pumpkin patch since Wyatt was only a few months old, to all of our Christmas traditions (trust me there are tons). It is just I want to make great memories for our kids so that they can look back and say "Wow I had a great childhood" and then when they have kids they will continue to make family traditions to create those wonderful memories.
So I will add to mine so as not to look like a copy kat. My other big thing I love to create that will also allow me to always remember those wonderful fun times is Scrapbook pages. I love to dig deep for my creative side and make these wonderful pages.
Here are a few I have created.

Meeting his new baby sister
I always add journaling to the pages the poem reads:
"I have a new sister, they dress her in pink. I don't know where she came from, but she's staying I think.
Mommy and Daddy are now ours to share; they'll love us both and I know they'll be fare.
I'll kiss her and hug her with all my might; and I won't mind if she cries in the middle of the night.
I'll help with her diapers and with her bath too; she needs her big brother, she's so tiny and new.
I'm ready for the challenge; on me she can depend. I have a new sister, I have a new friend.
