Lover of everything crafted...
Its really magic how many things we can do by our hands, how much we can get from this creative work although this is not a work. You know in Greek work is translated douleia and its means slavery, so it contains not a very good meaning. Creation is a much better word to express everything we do even if we do it in order to produce money.
Crafting, whatever it is , knitting, embroidering, painting, jewelery, cooking, first of all gives us a feeling of warmth inside. Something very sweet fills our body and soul when sitting in front of a paint stand , when we gother all necessary materials in many many boxes on the table and we pull our chair to take position , to touch , get inspired, start making things.
We listen to our favorite music and we read the recipe in the old opened dirty from cake splashes recipe book. We let our imagination quide us . What is important is to leave our sofa, to share what we love with other people, to use as men did years ago our soul and hands, creating and not buying things because these things will contain something from us therefore they will be precious.
