I'm still alive!
I'm still making things. Sometimes. Slowly. With many, many interruptions and long periods of drought where I forget I even have a craft studio in the basement and that I used to document my made things on a blog.
Does anyone even read blogs that aren't monetized, with carefully curated photos, and amazing video tutorials? Probably not. That's why I've started using Instagram lately. But I started this blog as a crafting journal of sorts for myself, so why not continue adding to it when time allows? Right? I just went back and found a post for the Sophia Carry-All I made my daughter ten years ago. Ten. Years. Ago. She still tries to pack it for trips even though it's the size of a purse on her now! But, it made me want to make a new one. I love looking back and remembering the things I've made.
So, we went to Paris, it was AMAZING, we paid many hundreds of dollars to buy tickets to enter the competition to watch our own son dance. We came back and I found this Eiffel Tower project from SVGCuts and had to make it. It only took .... a thousand hours, during which I was trying to remember how it felt to enjoy doing something without being late and in a hurry, that is not something that I have to do, and also feeling stressed and guilty that I wasn't using that time to clean the floor or make dinner. I think I have PTSD just from being a regular mom?
It came out super cute. My daughter took it to her school when she gave a presentation on the Paris trip. My son took it to his MakerSpace class just to show. Came back intact each time. My husband walked by it and dropped a large book on it twice. ?? What is wrong with people? It's almost like he's trying to destroy it. On purpose? I don't know.
