The Church of Craft

There is something so spiritual about making something... I spent the better part of today making two gifts for a friend and a family member. Tote bag style purses made of upholstery fabric lined with bright cotton, one sporting buttons the other a fabric flower.

It thrills me to make things with my hands. I feel alive, useful and brilliant. Even if the finished craft is not perfect the sheer act of creating makes me feel wonderful..

Surprisingly my crafting is one of the few areas in my life where my desire for perfection does not exist.... Flaws are an important part of the creative process
