Hi there, I’m Sydnei – now Creel 😍 – and I’m so excited to share with you a little bit more about me and my life. Welcome to my Sweet Surroundings!
I’m a recent grad and proud alum of Duke University (Go Blue Devils!) where I ran track and was a cheerleader. I was raised right down the road and stayed nearby post-grad, so I still call North Carolina home with my sweet hubby along with both of our families.
Speaking of which, I’m [newly!] married to my best friend! His name is Jonathan and I’ll reference him often. He’s a worship leader at a church and we met while sharing our two loves of music and Jesus. God is my #1 priority and I aim to show that in the way I live my life. I LOVE baking, all things home related, and [sorta kinda not so secretly] singing + playing piano. That being mixed with Jonathan’s producing and videography skills, I may just throw a video up here one day. 😉
My big girl job is at a big tech company in sales, but have a burning creative side (hence the birth of my Sweet Surroundings!). Prior to starting this, I spent all of my free time on Pinterest creating boards, getting ideas, and recreating everything I saw. That’s what inspired me to develop all of this; I started my blog for the purpose of creating one pretty place where I can chronicle all that I do.
The truth is, I have so many ideas bouncing around in my head, and I want to try them ALL. But they don’t fit into one cute little niche, or even the same relative category – they’re all over the place. So my Sweet Surroundings is my catch all! I pour my heart into each and every project I jump into, then I get to keep it here forever. I share my projects, ideas, thoughts, experiences, favorite moments, and even my trials and errors. I want this to be a place where others can find inspiration, feel motivated and creative, learn how-to’s, and hopefully be encouraged along the way. I hope you love it as much as I do. This is officially my creative home. 🙂
