giving handmade gifts are a love of mine...
I love to just give and give and give....
my husband~ not so much.
he asked me what I wanted~ and he has already been working hard towards the main things I wanted.
a new deck (old is being torn down)
a rain water system ( he still thinks I wont use it..... its free water- why wouldn't I)
a chicken coop (plans to use the old wood from the deck being torn up)
so what does one like me want????
I actually asked for a "craft day a month"
one day a month where the kids and he are out of the house- and I get to craft my little heart out.
just craft.... and craft..... and craft.
I AM GIDDY WITH EXCITEMENT THINKING OF WHAT I GET TO DO THIS MONTH! GIDDY I TELL YOU! GIDDY!
I have a small antique rocking chair collecting fabrics (for PJ pants) , dolls (with brains coming out), and other ideas to get started on. The important thing is to get to all those "I could use this" fabrics and make all the planned projects that have been waiting a long time to be made. You know, all that yarn that is perfect for this or that... but remains in a skein of fiber and those quilts that have been set aside ( like this one, and this one).
Julius Caesar once said "It is better to create than learn. Creating is the essence of life"
He must have seen my craft supply closet and knew that I was not in my essence of life.... so, this year my resolution (if I had any) is that I am going to create, and live in my essence!
anyone else wanna get their craft on with me?
