Crafting round up:
Today was a busy crafting day for me, as I really wanted to pull out the glue gun and get to work on whatever I could get my hands on and in this case I started with a handmade rope basket, then moved on to rope coasters to fill the basket, and finished off with a trail marker/outdoor hanging sculpture.
I also did an update to my blog. I changed the background (not the name) and gave it some updated fonts. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I think it is more inviting, and that is what this is all about, bringing readers what they want while also bringing myself some self satisfaction by sharing the things that bring me joy.
What I didn’t get around to today, that makes me a little sad is my book. I made a promise to myself that I would write this weekend and I haven’t kept that promise so far. I am trying not to beat myself up too much about it because I did in the end accomplish so much, just not what I had expected. In reality though, how often does one actually accomplish one’s specific goals without getting sidetracked and taking a roundabout way to get there? In my case, I almost never get to my final destination by taking the straight and narrow path, it’s a much more curvy route. Isn’t that half the fun anyway?
