I like mac-n-cheese, but this post isn't about food. At least, it shouldn't be. I guess I can't guarantee that since, knowing me, all roads lead to food.
This is the first year that I've made an attempt to get a head start on all my handmade Christmas presents for my family and friends. The last two years, I waited until last minute (the eternal procrastinator, that's me :D) , mainly because I was still new and inexperienced. Also, I'm crap when it comes to doing things ahead of time. I'm getting better, mostly because I have to be a step ahead when dealing with the boys.
I've had a bit of the blues, lately. I think it's just because I've been feeling overwhelmed with the impending doom of Christmas, weighing down on me like a fat kid on a wicker chair. I try making checklists of things I need to work on, deadlines I have.
Is it working? A little.
Also, there's my very first craft fair. It's at the end of November, and I am SO nervous. It's at my church, so there's not a lot of pressure, but still...I'm a great ball of nerves.
I think my biggest problem is that I get trapped in my own head. I've never been to therapy, but I realized last year that I am able to work out and let go of a lot of my problems when I knit and crochet. It's like, when a project is finished, a part of me that was broken is now healed. That is definitely something I wasn't expecting. I wonder if it's the same way for other people.
Is it that way for you? Does your art help you heal?
