Today I’m writing about how there are so many crafts, paper crafts that I want to continue learning and exploring. The thing is time. There is not enough time to dabble and do them all. Is there? Here’s my dilemma. I love it all!! I feel like I’m a schizophrenic crafter. I want to do this, then that, now back to this. It can be dizzying even for me. Imagine what my husband and kids must think!! “Mom, what are you doing NOW? ” 🙂
This schizophrenic paper craft whirlwind began with The happy planner which I still love to add stickers to and plan my week. Then I wanted to do swaps, pocket letters, flipbooks. Then this went to scrapbooking both traditional and pocket pages.. do you see where I’m going. Now it’s junk journals. I love them all. I love paper, I love embellishments, paint glue. You name it. But, do I have to pick due to time?
I am a mother of 2 kiddos, a wife and a teacher. Thank goodness for summer!! I have had time to explore all things paper! But reality of a new school year is right around the corner. Do I have to pick?
Along with paper crafting I’ve tried my hand with YouTube and of course this blog. I am loving the process of learning how to blog, and post videos. All of this has been so fun!
So for today, I’m going to say no. I don’t have to pick. I may have to pick what I will work on for the day, hour or minute. But I can love all things paper. Who knows maybe with all of this craziness I’ll find what sticks! I have dreams of an Etsy shop, or craft shows one day. I think all of this exploring will help me find which one will lead to my dream.
The art of creativity is letting go, and enjoying it all. Perhaps it is in small bits of time here and there. But if it makes my heart sing. If you have found a crafty “thing” that makes your heart sing, or 9,243 crafty things, you don’t have to pick. Just relax and enjoy it!
