About

Hello, and welcome to Rattle Dreams.

Are you always searching for that one special creative thing you can do? Are you the type of person that jumps from one thing to another, never fully satisfied?

I know I am. So isn’t it time we did something about that?

November 23rd, 2017 marked the start of a glorious new adventure and the birth of Rattle Dreams. Tired of living my life just “wishing” for creativity and inspiration, I decided get up and go do something about it.

Here at Rattled Dreams I will be sharing my own personal story as I coax my muse out of hiding and develop my own creative style. Since I am a firm believer that no one travels down these roads alone, I’ll be sharing some tips and tricks to help you too find your own style and inspiration.

Want to meet the girl behind the blog?

My name is Carrie and at times I feel like I’ve always been a blogger.

Back in my younger days I used to run various fansites for all my favorite shows. But it was not until 2012 that I really fell down the blogging well when I created Once Upon a Dream Books, a book review blog that later morphed into Paper Bindings when I decided I wanted to open up the blog to more than just reviews.

Three things you need to know about me:
  • I’m secretly a dragon. Yup, a firebreathing, prince stealing, book hoarding dragon. So don’t start no drama here, you hear?
  • Honest is important to me. “Better terrible truths than kind lies.” ~ Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows. Sometimes it hurts to hear something that will get you down, but I’d take that pain over the crushing pain when you realize how you were lied to.
  • I am my own worst critic. But aren’t we all?
