Crafting Is My Happy Place

Now more than ever, crafting has become my happy place. I don't know about you, but the last six months have been pretty tough. The enforced isolation due to the global pandemic has kept us all more indoors than ever. Now, I have always enjoyed pottering around at home with my little projects, but crafting has become much more than that in recent months. When I sit down at my workspace, I switch on my favourite podcast and forget about all the other things that are usually occupying my mind. I am surrounded by beautiful things - colourful scrapbooking cardstock, vintage papers, cheerful washi tapes, pretty tags and ribbons - and inspiration flows. One day I could be working on a new mini book to add to my store, another day I spontaneously feel the urge to create a new junk journal. When the inspiration comes, I just let it flow and do what ever feels best that day. And if I have the luxury of being undisturbed for an afternoon, I get the greatest gratification of all - a finished, hand-made object, ready to use or to offer for sale in my store.
For me, the journey is actually the destination. It's the creative process that makes me happy - although I do love the finished objects I have created. But I have no problem letting go of those objects; I love the always-different and ever-changing process of creating. It's more than a hobby or a job, it's an expression of self. Being able to sell the items, is the icing on the cake because I love the idea that someone else might appreciate the object I have created. It makes me happy.

    Creativity has always been part of my life. No surprise then that I eventually scrapped my first career as a teacher to become a writer and a photographer. Serial crafter from a young age, my favourite material to work with is - everything.
