What I'm Creating Wednesday!
Right, well because I don't already have enough things going on, I've decided to add one more. Why not, you only live once right?
I always have some sort of craft going on, something I'm creating, whether it's my latest crochet project, or a knitted dishcloth, maybe it's a quilt I'm slowly plugging along, or a stuffed toy for my children, and sometimes it's a letter I'm writing to someone, or an experiment in the kitchen like making sourdough or a birthday cake I'm battling with.
Whatever it may be, there is certainly always something being created in my house.
The reason, I think, is that I love making things with my own hands, and I am a firm believer that we all have creative juices flowing through our brains, the problem is that some of us hold back maybe because we have platforms like Pinterest that make us seem inadequate, not as clever, not as creative as the well propped and composed photos shared online.
But I want you to throw those thoughts out the window, and realize that what you see is not really what goes on in a normal household, whatever the definition of normal may be.
One thing is being creative and using your imagination because you like it and you enjoy making things for yourself....another thing is putting on a front, spending tons of money on props to portray something you're not.
The most important thing, is being yourself and being content with who you are and where you are in your life. :)
With all that said, I've decided that Wednesdays I'm going to show you what I'm creating, whatever it may be.
If you wish, you can join in and show us what is your craft basket, I love seeing what others are creating :)
Have two rows complete and am currently making more granny squares to add. I'm enjoying this project, I think it's just what I needed to get me off the crochet funk.
What are you currently working on??
