December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?
The last thing I made was probably a birthday card. I know I made one for my grandma's birthday, but I am pretty sure I made a card for something else more recently. When I make these cards I usually use markers, colored pencils, photos, and quotes. I make cards rather than buying them sometimes because I enjoy doing it and it seems to show the appreciation or gratitude I have towards that person far better when I create it.
YES, YES, YES there are sooooo many things I want to make but just haven't cleared the time for it. I love art, and find it such an emotional release creating it. I envy my mom for this reason...she has an amazing space and gets to create art all day, every day if she wanted...so rewarding! Writing this post made me realize how much I need to make the time to create more!
