So it may be my sudden journey into “mommy world,” but I have come across dozens of crafty people lately. They make the cutest things. Headbands, hairbows, curtains, baby toys, furniture… you name it, they craft it.
I love crafts. I remember finger painting as a kid and even putting all my coloring into a binder with clear plastic folders. I loved to create things. At girls camp as a teenager, I would spend hours at the craft table making beaded bracelets or whatever they had to keep us entertained.
I’m not sure why, but I’m a little hesitant to jump in to this world of mommy crafts. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure I’d love it…but I just have to take the plunge. We have a Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, fabric stores, and Goodwill…all the stores to make a successful mommy crafter.
I did attempt my first real craft. I made these Lemon Candles, thanks to some encouragement by my mom and good ol’ Martha Stewart’s website. They turned out really cute, and I was pretty proud of myself. I realized that there is real joy in creating something. I need to do more of that.
I guess I’m just intimidated by all these awesome crafters I’ve found. Check out a few, and you’ll see what I mean. Simply awesome.
