I spent a lot of this weekend thinking about ways that I can be involved in more crafty endeavors. I dreamt of it being my life, my job. I schemed about businesses to start and classes to teach. In the end, I realized that you don't manufacture that sort of thing, you just do what you do. And, of course, this was just symptomatic of the January "blahs" that Cara posted about yesterday.
In all of this, I just decided to channel this energy into more creating. This season of my life, I will invest in creating and learning, to prepare me for what may come down the road later. I also realized that I need to truly invest in my life today, and not yearn for it to be a different life.
Speaking of being crafty, I am still catching up from the holidays, and I never shared the finished product of my favorite crafty gifts of 2008 – relaxation kits for the girls at work! I had shared with you bits and pieces along the way, but now I can share the whole thing.
They were fun to make, well-received and hopefully enjoyed over the holidays by the recipients!
