This week Nancy wrote me a nice note about my previous blog post:
I really enjoyed reading your blog about your troubled room and seeing the pictures. Things like this are always inspiring! I noticed the baskets on your family history desk. Did you make them? Those are the types of baskets that I write patterns and teach classes for so I found them interesting and beautiful in your room.
Hi to Nancy and all the Crafters out there...
I did make two of them in that photo (on the history desk by my computer). But not the red, white and blue one.
So if you make baskets or quilts or any other handmade crafts, sign them, date them, and TELL the story verbally. Cluster them together and make them the cherrished collection they ARE. Oh yeah, and then photograph it and scrapbook it too! Don't let the other aspects of your creative side be lost in the shuffle of life! Document them. :) Share them. Enjoy them.
