Too Many Things, too little time

Usually this time of year I like to resume my crafting hobby that I abandon in the Summer. Well, this past Summer I didn't have any crafts to set aside, so if I want to craft I will have to start fresh. My fingers have been giving me a lot of problems, but I'm still going to try. Miss Peach's mommy, Karla showed some pretty paper crafting on her blog, so I'll start with that. I have some pretty papers, but I'll practice with construction paper first. I also want to try beading again. I used to make necklaces and bracelets. I like the really nice glass beads and they can be rather pricey, so I don't do it a lot.I also like to embellish jeans with ribbon and small decorative patches, which adds a nice touch of individuality.
One would think I'm a "Martha Stewart" with all the baking, crafting, and gardening I like to do, but actually most things I do don't come out any where near as perfectly as her projects. I just like to keep busy, because I'm stuck at home on disability because of rheumatoid arthritis. I used to work at a library, but putting books away ,pushing heavy carts around and being on my feet all day just put my body through the ringer. If I don't start the "heavy hitter "drugs soon, my hobbies will become difficult to manage too. I told my husband that when I can't get out of bed to take care of the kitties anymore then I'll go on the biologics. (They won't eat if he feeds them. ;0 )
Another Christmas gone. Another year will begin. I wonder what it will bring...

Crafts are great therapy, but don't worry that yours aren't Martha Stewart. Do you have a roomful of disgruntled employees helping you as you scream at them all for perfection? I didn't think so.
Just enjoy the process and the end results will be joy to your heart.

Now, time for a nap.

The next year should find you relaxing and following your dreams!
We worry too much about stuff that is not important and forget to live in the moment.
WOW that sounds like a fortune cookie LOL!
I enjoy your discriptive writing about comes straight out of the secret place of your heart. My tears have fallen over the words....
Love Miss Peach and Karla

I just got a tapestry out of the cupboard which was started 2 years ago only now, much to my chagrin, I realise I need glasses to embroider as I am not as young as I once was and Faz tries to catch the thread which isn't too helpful. Christine
