Thats thanks to school and work. What else kills big plans better that obligations? School was going better when I didn't have a work schedule to keep up with. I have to remind myself that what I am learning will help me be an indie crafter one day soon. Working at the Anchorage Cafe at Mercy Ships has it's ups and downs but, eh, who want to make spoiled people lattes?? Not I. But, its that or Brooshires so "do you want that hot or iced?".
I have a craft bazzar in November at my aunts work which I am currently crafting for. As a result of all the planning and crafting that goes into preparing for a show, my heart is light and my soul is refreshed!
Crafting just fits me. No matter if I am re-covering a vintage novel or making "art" with one of the little angels I babysit, everything in my world is a little better because I am making beauty. Not art. No I am not, nor do I want to be, an "artist" but rather, I am a crafter, maker, artisan whatever.
I craft because I must, because without it I wilt, because I give my soul away in each item therefore sharing God's love and light. So I craft because God wants me to.
Meg and Am, if you are reading this, and I am sure your the only ones who have checked this out, I love you and am proud that my 2 best friends are living out a dream. Oh I miss you.
