A little bit of crafting and I can see the world in a whole new light. A completed project makes me feel so good about myself – it reaffirms my ability as a crafter and I know that I can tackle those less than appealing projects with a new gusto. I am definitely a more patient wife and mom to my family when I get a little bit of quiet time with the sewing needle. (That feeling stays with me even when that lone crafting turns into a group project!)
Plus, I get to cross something off my "to-make" Christmas list. (And such a long list it is…) Do you remember this post and this one? The people who brought forth Creative Play for Your Toddler, published another book for making toys for the wee ones. It's been staring me down for the last few months – begging me to get started.
The creative juices are flowing and I can hear those squeaky wheels turning. My brain is scrambling with all sorts of fellow farm animal fun for my little guy. I've already had a request from the older brother as well, so we will have to see what type of animal I can create (or he requests). I just hope it is something that looks good with a wool felt coat.
