I've been checking my blog reel everyday and keep ignoring the fact that my last post was a week ago. I haven't done much in the way of crafting lately. I've been doing jigsaw puzzles instead. I only just picked my hexis back up again, they've been spread out on my floor for the last 2 weeks while I was sewing portions together but my motivation disappeared.
I've been having a moment....you know the one I mean. Doubting why it is I bother with all this crafty stuff anyway. It seems to be a dying art, few people are actually interested anymore and I never tire of the strange and surprised looks I get from people when I tell them what I do in my spare time. And if I hear 'you're so young, I don't think I've ever seen someone your age into that kind of thing' one more time I'm just gonna lose it.
Yes I craft. I sew, knit, crochet, bead, embroider, cross stitch and even draw, paint and collage when inspiration strikes. Yes I even make my own clothes and YES I'm not yet 24.
I do these things because I enjoy them. I like using my hands to fashion something different from something seemingly small and ordinary. I like to cook for the same reason.
If I'm so firm about what I do and why, why am I feeling down about it all, thinking it's a waste of my time and like I don't fit in?
