About Me

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Maya Angelou

Thank you for joining me today! I would like to welcome you into my creative world, through my blog, “Anchored by Ink”. Here I will share my love for anything and everything crafty! 

First, a little about me: My name is Meg Brooks. I am a mom to two wonderfully energetic kids and wife to a United States Navy sailor. We have moved so many times, it usually takes me a minute to remember my address! One of our moves included Japan, which was an insanely amazing experience. I miss it dearly! I have been doing crafts for as long as I can remember. When I was young, I use to cross stitch and help my mom weave baskets (I get my creative spirit from her). Paper crafting came a bit later into my life around high school (I’m not going to tell you how many years ago that was). 

I thought I would bring you into my thought process for my blog title as it has a special meaning. The most obvious is the “anchor” because of my husband’s career. The deeper meaning/symbol of the anchor is for strength, loyalty and stability. Being a military spouse is not easy… you move around every few years (usually) and have to endure long periods without your spouse. In essence, I feel that I am the anchor that holds my family together. I am the constant for my husband and my kids no matter where we are. What anchors me you might ask…. well thats easy! Creativity. It is my stability in a sometime chaotic life of new places. I can take it anywhere and it is always there for me.

I hope you enjoy my blog and my goal is that it inspires the creativity in you! This is a new journey for me and it is by no means perfect.. but what is in life?

“One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn’t exist…..Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist”
