The six-year-old within my sixty+ year old body delights in playing with pens and paper and fibers and fabric to create gifts I hope will bring beauty and delight to myself and others. Recently when reading Julie's blog Under the Tulip Tree I decided to purchase a Klutz Lettering Book to which Julie had contributed. The Joy card I made for a friend was my first effort, and great fun to make.
December 3, 2011, I joined a friend at a middle school craft fair. We hostessed a table with paper, fiber, and bead crafts for sale, our second try and slightly more successful than our first effort.
My daughters and I knit a *tree* of dishcloths and I sold a few. I crocheted hair scrunchies and a red and gold set of napkin rings, a cup cosy, and some hot mats. I knit a holiday hand towel also. But whether I sell anything or not I enjoy the creative process, and I loved getting to admire what others created at the fair. Inspiring!
Through the fog the last few days I noticed the front and back ponds seemed very still...a little bit like a mirror because of a thin film of ice. Ahhh will the Creator gift us with a beautiful white blanket of snow someday soon?
