I started my weekly blog series CREATIVE SUGAR to promote positivity and provide a platform for everyone to share their unique stories, knowledge and experiences, showcasing the beauty, connection, and inspiration that exists in our every day.
This week on CREATIVE SUGAR, I’m delighted to share inspiration from Carrie Schmitt (Seattle, WA).

What’s the greatest advice you’ve been given?
Keep your eye on the ball. My dad told me this over and over as a girl playing in boys’ hardball little league. I found that as long as I did this, I had great success. I think it taught me to have confidence that I can do anything if I stay focused and determined which has helped me throughout my life.
What’s some not-so-great advice you’ve been given?
Not to major in art in college.
What’s Your Biggest Dream?
To be a full-time artist, to write a children’s book, to kayak more, to get rid of my heat allergy (yes, I’m allergic to heat), and to travel to beautiful places with my family.
