Crafting is my therapy…it’s what quiets my thoughts and eases my mind. So why do I find it so hard sometimes to just sit down and enjoy some time to myself? Life has been so up and down lately. There’s lots going on in my family, lots going on in my head, lots going on with my health. But life isn’t going anywhere so I am learning to make “me time” a priority, despite the circumstances.

A good friend of mine bought me this creativity journal….and I spent lots of time this week just getting things out of my head and onto paper. I am working on some gifts for a Facebook “pay it forward” challenge I took in January and would love to start getting some gifts out…and then moving on to a special project that I’m working on for a couple of friends who have birthdays in April.

  1. I am sooo with you on the making time for me :/ I don't do it enough...I also love to craft...honestly since Josie's birth i have not been able to get back into it. Just sending this note agian to let you know i love this blog. keep em coming. =)

  2. At the beginning of the year I decided that this year I need to make time for myself. I'm attempting to make 52 crafts in 52 weeks. I may have fallen behind already, but I have also completed so much more in the past few weeks than I did all year last year. Good luck in getting your time for yourself!
