This last weekend I had a few hours to myself to go to Seattle’s ” Urban Craft Uprising” event at Seattle’s Center Pavilion. This event has been running for three years and during three days local artists and out-of-state crafters/business owners come to showcase their work and mingle with other artists in the crafting industry. The weather was perfect Seattle summer weather and the event was full of creativity, great design and a medley of gourmet treats.
One album of a life that ended too soon and the second of three little lifes full of hopes, possibilities and blessings. And these two little albums brought me back to the reason of WHY I craft. It simply gives me joy. I don’t have to brand, market and PR this joy.
I simply can’t do this during this super busy season of life. The anxiousness I felt coming back from the show was gone and I felt simply content with my finished craft. I’m not sure when and if I’ll design something to market and sell. But what I do know now is that when I decide to do this, the reason will be to continue to en-joy crafting and not to try to keep up with all the talent and creativity out there. For now, I’m happy to enjoy the blessings God has given me and I’m very thankful I can encapsulate some of these in my crafts. Thank you for reading! If you wouldn’t mind sharing with me, why do you craft?
