Arts and Crafts

Mom, Baby Brother and I went to the arts and crafts fair at Jared Padalecki's old school yesterday. There weren't nearly as many booths as usual, and hardly any people. I hate that, because you end up buying something you don't need/want because you feel bad for the people at the booth.

There was a LOT of jewelry, and I bought a set for Cindi. I bought some handmade soap because the dh likes it (and it smells gooooood) and some soup mixes. I got Cindi's daughter a little Dora purse and a crocheted hat for her birthday (on Thanksgiving) and a crocheted scarf, though I make those like a crazy lady.

Being there made me realize how much I loved to do all that stuff, the crafting, the putting pieces together. I never tried the jewelry making, but I like to crochet. I loved making cross stitch pictures, decorating daily items with personal touches, like fabric or crochet or cross stitch. I liked making pins and ornaments. Whenever there was a new craft, I tried it. I was a regular at Michael's, and I love Hobby Lobby and the new JoAnn Fabrics. I always feel energized.

Now, if only I had eight arms and an extra 12 hours in the day.....

Do you craft? What do you like to do?

I love crafts!! I cross stitch and crochet and scrapbook... or, I should say I USED to.

No time.

I used to LOVE to cross-stitch, but in addition to having no time, I can't find the patterns I liked best, either. :(

EXACTLY, Marianne and Natalie. No time. This time of year, especially, I like to crochet, but....

I can't see well enough to cross stitch anymore :( I used to have Leisure Arts magazines coming out my ears!
