the more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.


Sometimes, it amazes me how quickly time passes. One year ago, I was posting about my first blog birthday....now here I am, posting about my second. Yes, the creation of beauty is art. is now officially two years old!

It's hard to believe that I've been blogging for two years. I never thought that I would fall in love with something so much. Blogging has been such a rewarding experience for me. Through the creation of beauty is art. I have gotten to know so many amazing bloggers, I've interviewed people that inspire me, and I have pushed myself creatively.

This year has had a few highlights, like hitting 1000+ followers on Google Friend Connect and interviewing Laurel House and Makeup by Saz. Blogging has allowed me to have so many wonderful opportunities that I never could have imagined possible. I am so grateful to have people that supported me in the last couple of years - it means the world to me. Thank you for reading, for caring, and for being a part of my life.

Two years ago, I dedicated this blog to "the beautiful things that keep me dreaming." I hope to continue to do just that.

“Love of beauty is Taste. The creation of beauty is Art.”

  1. Happy Blog Birthday, Shannon!!! I can't believe how fast it goes and blogging is so special to me too! It keeps me sane and keeps me going on days where I am not sure how I will get through the day! I just love reading comments and keeping in touch with people who share the same interests, you know? I hope you have a great day, and I would love for you to stop by and visit when you get a chance! xx Pip
