Guess What!? I Love Crafting!

If there's one thing I take away from this little sabbatical as a stay at home mom it's this: I really enjoy creating things with my hands.

When I was a working full-time, driving kids around, stressing about dinner and passing out at the end of each day, crafting was very low on my daily priority list. Weekends were about spending time with family, maybe painting a wall and reading. Not much else to cram in there.

But now that I'm home all day and have gotten some really big house projects done, I'm able to indulge in just crafting to craft. And with the holidays, I have the best excuse to create holiday decor things for family members and to pretty-up the house.

I forgot how much I love to make things.

I have bins and bins of crafting supplies that I've been collecting here and there but never had time to sort through and create. Now free time is finally here and I'm totally indulging in it ... and feeling sincerely grateful for it. Anyway, here's a little scenery of the things I've been putting together. Are they amazing? No. But they've brought me lots of joy to put together.

So, when I'm back to work full time and my schedule becomes crazy again, I must MUST remember to allow some time to create, because it's something I really love to do.
