This morning I made a promise to myself. I guess you can say it is a September Resolution. I know… I know… resolutions are typically made in January to bring in the New Year, but I can’t put this off for four more months, so I guess I am bringing in a New September.
My resolution-to ensure that I spend time every day for me working on things that I am passionate about because with passion comes happiness.
Right now, since we are heading into the cooler and colder temperatures my outside activities are quickly dwindling down and turning into indoor crafts. Plus, with the holidays approaching, it is never too early to start creating my handmade gifts for loved ones.
Just like the age old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, “Crafting each day keeps mom happy Yay!” I suggest you give it a try. I have a feeling that you are totally going to love it! It is even quite possible that you will become a craddict- this is a person who eats, breaths, and sleeps their craft of choice. And, yes I made that word up, but that is because I go through my craddict phrases all the time. There is nothing like making something from scratch, working each step meticulously, resulting in perfection. It is a lovely bliss.
Creating stunning products from raw materials is very invigorating. When combined with the passion, all of the hard work is actually really rewarding. Plus, if you haven’t noticed yet, I love doing it so it is time well spent.
Crafting allows for you spend the amount of time you want to on it. There are some beautiful products that take seconds to create like smelly jellies, and on the other end of the spectrum, some more time consuming projects like the famous triple layered candle (these are totally worth the work!) Even if you only allotted yourself 20 minutes today for your me time, that is more than enough to totally whip out a few batches of Vanilla Lavender melt and pour soap embeds. Then, you get to treat yourself to a super relaxing bath as a bonus.
Get excited for me time… if you are looking to start creating some new crafts, or maybe you just don’t know where to start at all,
