Today I decided to start a blog. I got my inspiration from a lovely little blog called A Beautiful Mess. My name is Taylor, and I love things crafty, nifty, thrifty, and cute.(: I'm a lover of Jesus Christ, and am your average 16 year old girl. I love to PinterestFacebook, and of course, blog! I follow many many blogs on bloglovin'. I am a big fan of DIY crafts, and really anything crafty that I can make myself. I love cooking, painting, and loving my boyfriend, Cory. I am part of a family of five, live in Friendly North Carolina, and I go to a spirited little high school school right in the middle. 

Here are some of my favorite things. 

1. Jesus. Hands down. My absolute favorite thing to do is spend time with my savior. 

2. Cory
My boyfriend & best friend Cory has to be the sweetest boy God ever made. I know that sounds mushy, and it is, but I'm serious. He is such an amazing person, & is so funny. All he does is give, & love, & he means the world to me. So he is my second favorite. (: 

3. Craft. 
Anything Crafty, nifty, thrifty, or artsy is just love! I love to read DIY Craft tutorials. Like this Paper Christmas Tree tutorial. 

4. Knitting. 
I never have much time for it anymore, but over the summer I took up knitting as a hobby. My grandma decided she would learn also, and we plan to give away some 70 to 100 scarves (Hand-Knitted) to our local food drive or soup kitchen this Christmas. I came up with that idea one afternoon while I was eating lunch, and my mom and I talked it over and decided we could do it this Christmas. Our county has a high unemployment rate, and a lot of people can't afford their house, let alone a scarf or a jacket for the winter. (Which I have heard will be a hard one this year) So that is my way of giving back to my God, and my community. Our ministry is called "At Home Missions". I think it is awesome to give what you have extra to someone who is in need. For me, that is my ability to knit, and my time. Next year I hope to reach at least 200 scarves, and 100 knit hats or mittens.

5. Paint
I love to paint. I don't know what it is about a blank canvas and a paintbrush that gets me so inspired. This is definitely one of my favorite hobbies. 

Well, those are just a few of the things I enjoy doing. I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day! 
xoxo -Taylor
