I craft. I craft a lot. As a matter of fact, I spend the majority of my free time doing something crafty. However, rarely do I craft without a purpose. I have lists upon lists of things I want to make tutorial videos of, things I need to do for a gift or someone special. I have projects to make that I’ve pinned on Pinterest or from some other youtuber.
Today, I sat in my craftroom and thought… I want to make something. I have no idea what. I toyed with sewing, scrapbooking or making a card. When I couldn’t decide I just pulled out some papers, and then some embellishments, but I still had no idea what I was going to make. And then it happened. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I had created a Memory Dex Card.
It’s certainly not the first Memory Dex card I’ve ever made (I’ve made hundreds). It’s not the best project I ever made, but this little card made something “click” inside of me. This little card represented a little slice of heaven. It brought me back to the simplicity of just doing what I love. I didn’t hear the phone, I didn’t even have a tv, music or any noise on in the background. When I was finished, I looked at my little creation and without realizing what I had done… I noted the “be true to who you are”. It simply summed up exactly what I was feeling. Today, I crafted. I crafted… just because. And I loved it.
