Do you ever wonder why you love to spend your time doing what you do? Had it not been for a family member to bring in interest to something would you have gone on to still do it in your adult life? I loved watching this video about My Uncle’s Gift because it reminded me about when my grandmother first taught me to sew.
I love to craft. Nothing specific either. It could be with paper, fabric, anything. I just love the feeling of taking a bunch of supplies and putting them together and making something beautiful. I often find that when I’m stressed it helps to relax me.
Fact- If it wasn’t for my love of crafting this blog wouldn’t exist. Before I ever became known as a mom blog this was very much a place for me to share the crafts I made. I even ran a rather successful Etsy store!
I have made sure to have my kids participate now when I’m on my crafting missions. My oldest is a natural and shares my love for making things. He generally likes to have his own project he can start and finish on his own these days. This is great since I can then work with my younger two making sure that they too can learn all the different ways there are to craft and see if there is a specific craft that helps them to find how creative they can be.
