Sometimes I need to stop thinking and turn my mind off and the best way for me to do that is to distract myself with my hobbies (or a couple of beers will work too).
When I start working on my projects my mind is completely focused on what I’m doing. I don’t see or hear any distractions around me, I am honed in. Time slips by so quickly and before ya know it, a few hours have gone by. There may have been a couple of times I’ve forgotten to pick up a child from school…whoops! Dang projects, but look how pretty they turn out!
I’ll start a project and then that always seems to lead to something else that needs to be refreshed. Ya know how you bring in one new item and then everything else seems to look old and dingy?? That happens to me a lot, my husband Scott is a good sport about it, probably ’cause I shop at thrift stores for my finds and not much money is needed. I save him a ton of money, I swear I do!
I love making crafts for babies, holy moly, they are so stinkin’ cute and so are the babies! My daughters friend is having a little girl in June and she has a rustic themed nursery so this should fit in quite well with the decor for her lil’ angel.
I get a lot of requests from my daughter to make different things and I gladly obliged her. How can I say no to one of my favorite ladies?!? Is she spoiled? Noooooo…well maybe just a wee little bit but she has great ideas so we both win. She’s also very creative, she gets that from me ya know.
This is what I do, I create, I rescue and I repurpose. I have fun doing it and it really helps clear my mind and keeps my thoughts from running wild. My next project is a narrow bench for the laundry room. I hate hopping around on one foot while I’m putting on my shoes, I almost always crash into the wall so it’s kinda needed. Do you have any hobbies?
