I have spent the past year not touching a single item from my craft room. Dust on the sewing machine, bins stuffed away in a long forgotten closet. What was once a supply of craft goodies spilling from the over stuffed office shelves is not whittled down to just a few crates. A select number of fabrics, die cuts, sheets of paper, stamps, buttons and threads have remained.
Maybe it is the time of year, close to my birthday, the start of school, the beginning of fall, that starts that tingling feeling in my hands. There is an absences that is so recognizable. When days get chaotic and filled with other needs, although grateful for, leaves me longing for something that is just for me.
Which brings me to this point, and the reason I hadn't closed down my blog already. Somewhere to share, to stay creative, to stay connected to a world that calls me back every once and awhile. There are only so many searches of Pinterest that can be made before I realize that it all leads me down one path. I must create something, anything!
Today my fingers are busy with more than just school work and cooking. I look forward to it giving me peace and a settled feeling on days when the occasional panic sets in (which happens when we are homeschooling these days).
To admire the creativity of others, and be creative myself, makes my world continue to go round!
