Hi!  I’m Renea and welcome to Inspire a Creation, my lifestyle blog.  Here, you will find creative inspiration for every aspect of today’s living.  I will share content on recipes, gardening, DIY and crafts plus anything else that moves me.

Let me tell you a little about myself.  I’m a Midwesterner living in south central Illinois, am married, have two grown children, two grandchildren, and a cat.  My work experience has been in education and as a contract supervisor for a military branch.  Since I lived for seven years in the Memphis area, you might find a slight southern influence in some of my recipes, which I believe is a good thing.  I am a breast cancer survivor (9 years now).  Also, I have been an avid gardener for over 40 years. In addition, I have had extensive undergraduate-level horticulture training and have written several articles for my local newspaper.

I feel I have much knowledge and information to share—thus the creation of this blog.  Within my blog you will find posts related to the way we live today with many shortcuts and conveniences.  You will not find me baking bread.  Nothing against that, but I do not have the patience for that nor the time.

I’m so glad you stopped by.  Take a look around, and if you like what you see, please join me by signing up for emails from Inspire a Creation via the link so you won’t miss a single post.
