This weather changes me
The weather has turned cold, damp and dreary in the past week. It isn't any big surprise, really. I mean, it IS November in Michigan. Something happens to me around this time of the year... I change. Nothing as dramatic as when a werewolf changes from a man to a wolf. But to me it is as noticeable as that.
I get this intense urge to craft and create. Even if I don't have a major project going on, I need to find some kind of creative outlet. Unfortunately, I still have to work some crazy hours at work (it has been 2 1/2 years of overtime hours each and every week) and that makes it hard to start anything that takes any amount of time. I have a few projects in the works right now for Christmas gifts -- but I can't tell you about it, because some of the recipients of said gifts will be reading this blog.
What about you? Does the cooler weather trigger a crafty instinct in you? Do you give homemade gifts at Christmas? I love hearing what my blog readers are up to, so please comment. Happy crafting!
