I sort of have a love/hate relationship with ‘crafting’. I love the hands-on aspect of creating something, the creative energy that goes into it and the sense of accomplishment I feel when I complete a project. I also really love that it involves taking something that is unused or forgotten and making it into something new! Creative recycling.
The part I hate about it is that it takes time! A big part of being creative is not being afraid to ‘fail’ and for me especially: having the time! If I am rushed or stressed at all, I can say goodbye to any projects floating around my head.
Other than painting and refinishing furniture, I haven’t been able to do many projects for quite awhile. As it turns out, last week was pretty slow for me so I was able to try my hand at a couple things… a mixed media collage and a book page wreath (something I have been meaning to make since before Christmas!). I think they turned out pretty cute.
What sort of things do you like to create?
