Yesterday, I pulled a portable table into the middle of the living room so my daughter and I could create crafted Christmas gifts while Mom sewed curtains for my bedroom. The magical atmosphere encased us as we chatted away about creating wreaths and ornaments.
There’s something special about gathering creative eclectics in my family together for a day of crafting or making art. I might struggle to take the time to do artsy projects because I get caught up in life’s many demands, but when one or more of the artists in my family say, “Hey, let’s make something!” I’m all in for the experience.
So yesterday, out came the containers of Christmas crafting supplies, and my daughter, Mom, and I went into the zone.
