On Being Crafty

Grazing in the Snow

When you make plush toys, the highest compliment you could ever get would come from a kid. Yesterday a little boy called a sock monkey I made the softest sock monkey ever! It made my day and it makes me want to make many, many more sock monkeys.

I love making stuff with my hands and I do it not because I want to get compliments. I make stuff because it always feel rewarding when I see the finished product. It's handmade. It's one of a kind. And to me, it's priceless.

I put a sewing machine on my wishlist. If I get it, I'm SO going to be sewing up a storm!

    you’re very artis­tic with what­ev­er you’re doing… oh, I love this pic I don’t know why but it kind of reminds me of the hap­py mel­low times in the 70s

    Kids nev­er lie. Well, I used to when I was young. But not with toys! Good job, Fir­da!
