My name is Heidi Muller, and I’m behind Mish Mash Make.
I am drawn, moth – flame style, to creative people. If I am in a crowd, and sense an “inspired” vibe rolling off of someone, I want to seek them out, and know them. I want to become a friend and confidant.
The essays in this blog are a direct result of my infatuation with creative sorts. Poets? I want to hear your words. Potters? I want to touch your clay. Musicians? I want to rock out with you.
But I’m not only intrigued by creatives in a traditional sense. I am currently nuts about entrepreneurs – what a visionary bunch! And kids who make things, who create art from tin foil and toilet paper – I’m amazed by their lack of inhibition. Concrete masons, preachers, chronic furniture movers – those who make something from nothing… in their presence I’m wide open to inspiration.
The Maker gene is in me too. I am restless and empty if I am not baking, painting, up-cycling, writing… well, you get it. I am a maker, and I am made. All of the sparkles in my eye, all of the ideas spilling onto pages, all of the yearning to build and create are intrinsic to my – to our – DNA, passed on to us by our Maker and Creator.
This blog is as close as I can get to a coalescence (a mish mash, if you will) of the varied ideas, projects and people who interest me.
In the spirit of full disclosure, a big part of my life is cooking food, folding laundry, resolving conflicts, making up songs, and otherwise contributing to the making of my five creative children. I also love to teach the Bible and talk about my creator at my favorite little grass-roots church, NEOXenos Christian Fellowship.
