Well, it’s been a while since I crafted with DragonWillow! Some of our lady friends got together for scrapbooking this past weekend and I, of course, brought the jewelry stash.
I couldn’t decide on any ONE thing so I brought EVERYTHING and still managed a bit of productivity in a couple of hours.
DW and I made similar charm bracelets:
And I made a dainty enameled lock and key lariat putting my Philly Bead Show goods on display.
“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.” –
– Anthony J. D’Angelo
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
– Oprah Winfrey
“Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.”
-Georg WIlhelm Friedrich Hegel
“It is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind.”
Ex. “Why do you knit?” “Isn’t it just cheaper to buy a sweater?”
It seems there is always someone who wonders about (or questions) my choice of hobbies. Sometimes a person is simply curious and wants to know what makes me tick. Other times, the questioning comes across as a little cynical.
I do what I do simply because I enjoy it. I don’t necessarily look to save money, but I certainly welcome it. I don’t do it specifically to make money even though I’m open to selling items. I like to create things because they are unique, made with love, made specifically to my size or to my liking. I create for self-expression and because I have a passion for learning and creativity. I craft, sew, knit, etc. because it’s fun!
