Valocrat is a name I use to describe myself and how I view the world. It first came to me when I pondered the question, "Are you Republican or Democrat?" Besides the fact that there are more than two options for political party, answering an absolute "yes" to any of them not only labels your political beliefs, but your beliefs as a person...supposedly. I feel this way about most either-or questions. I love to learn new things, change my mind, and question everything. I started this blog in March 2009 as a personal journey to re-awaken my creative side. It has become a way for me to document and find new creative inspiration, and to add my own imagination into the mix.
"Glass Jars & Sparkle Water" was one of the first names that came to mind while I was brainstorming for my new blog. I'll be the first to admit, I have quite an obsession with Mason Jars, old salsa and sauce jars, and vintage jars. Jars allow endless creativity; from simple storage to lovely garden lighting. A second obsession of mine is La Croix sparkling water (lime flavored). This stuff has gotten me off soda, has 0 calories, and is crazy refreshing! I go through about 3 per day and love to mix it with cranberry juice. Glass Jars & Sparkle Water are two main components of Valocrat!
