Yes, “Havig” :)

Welcome to Havig It All!

My name is Rhonda Havig (hence the clever blog title) and I am excited to share with you ways to add creativity to your life.

I have a full-time job outside the home and am a wife and mother. I know that finding time for creativity can be a challenge and seeing some of the amazing things other people have done on various blogs, Pinterest, etc. can be intimidating.

For the past couple of years I have been having a bit of a crafting adventure trying different arts and crafts to see what works for me. Now I want to share with you what I have learned so you can see what works for you and we can all have loads of fun making things from doodles on scrap paper to handbags.
