I’ve set a goal for myself. 365 crafts in a year. Every day I will take time to make something. This isn’t an easy commitment. Being creative takes a special focus and effort. It’s not like turning on a faucet. Some days I will have many ideas, so I’ll jot them all down to save for other days when I feel less creative. I want the crafts to be meaningful, beautiful, or useful in some way. Yet I don’t want to become overwhelmed if I have a day when all I can muster is an origami box. That being said, the creative process brings me real joy and satisfaction. And so begins Day 1.
