I have this innate desire to create, and I think many if not all people do. For some it’s the perfect code in a program, for others it’s beautiful music or a perfect pot roast.
I never liked math and I’ve never been told that my singing is amazing. I like to cook and I think I’m doing a pretty good job at creating people out of little people.
For me, creating is sewing, sanding, painting, cross-stitching, quilting, cooking, fluting (is that a word?), singing and writing.
No matter what my talent, I keep practicing and trying. When the day is done, the munchkins are asleep, and my husband has reassured me that I’m a good mom, (even if I don’t feel like one) I like to create.
Every parent knows or at least feels that parenthood is a slow process with small rewards: a hug here, a smile there, kids finally sharing.
What I’m trying to say is that I’m not trying to be another cookie-cutter housewife and I hope you don’t perceive me as such. Most of my creations are given away because it makes me happy to make someone else happy. I love to be able to make something with an obvious end result, unlike cleaning or dishes that I will have to do all over again tomorrow. Anyone can do what they love most no matter their circumstances.
If there is one thing I have learned in the last 25 years, it is to stay true to who I am and who I've always been. So this is ME! :D
P.S. (you thought I was going to say I love you) Stay tuned! I have big projects and a big surprise for next week! No guessing!
