National Craft Month is over – did you craft all you wanted to? Did you finish projects or just start new ones?
Did you branch out to something new? Take advantage of any sales craft stores held?
I didn’t finish any of the projects I am working on. I still have a few things I really need to finish, but for some reason finding the motivation to do so is hard! I did finally get my card making supplies out and made cards for the swap I am in – which felt really good considering I took the past few months off since the supplies were with my Dad while I was in another state.
My one yarn needle broke and I have yet to replace it which means the fingerless gloves I was so happy to make for Alice still aren’t finished.
Since I didn’t buy a yarn needle that proves I didn’t get to a craft store. I admit it – it is hard to walk into a Joann that is so small. I don’t think I’ve seen a Joann store as small as the one here! I can’t even think of what to compare it to since stores are so oversized now. I haven’t found Michaels yet – but it seems like every store is on the other side of town! I rarely complain about having to drive somewhere for something – I grew up in a town where you had to drive two hours to the mall, one hour to the movies, etc. But seriously, all of the stores I enjoy (Joann, Barnes & Noble, Michaels, the mall, Hobby Lobby) are at least 15-20 minutes away, longer unless I can hit green lights. And driving over there not knowing what I want will be there, not fun. In fact I’m looking for a punch and am going to call the stores before I leave. I’d rather order online then drive across town just to see – the price of gas seems to be going up a few cents every three days!
Maybe some of my lack of crafting motivation has come from my serious motivation to work out – check out my baby weight blog at Losing My Baby Weight. I’ve been working hard the past week!
