On day sixteen of the NO SPEND month, we are encouraged to get crafty.
We are encouraged to use what we have on hand to create something new.
We are encouraged to have fun and not worry about it looking Pinterest perfect.
Well… that is all well and good if you actually enjoy crafting.
I do not.
I tried crafting once. Actually, I tried it more than once. It does not relax me.
So I started thinking about what I would replace this craft day with. What activity do I enjoy doing that is free that can be a sort of craft…
I like to write.
I don’t just write these blog posts. When I say I like to write, I mean I really like to write. I journal. I like to write stories. I like to write poetry. I like to craft words together and make them beautiful.
Crafting doesn’t alway have to involve a hot glue gun.
I have a hot glue gun.
I wanted to like it. I wanted to make amazing things.
But, I don’t.
