Motherhood Confessions: i. miss. crafting.

It’s rare now-a-days to have time and craft, something I truly enjoy. My first priority is Parker and Caity, then the household chores followed by bills, blogging and my Thirty-One business. Time to Pinterest, work on designs for my Etsy Shop, and craft is rare and I desperately miss it.  Iv’e always expressed myself through crafts and not being able to do so is such a bummer. This past weekend I finally got to a point where I needed to schedule in craft time this week while Parker was at daycare. We have a lot of people visiting throughout the holidays and I want the picture frames full! I decided that today, aside from caring for Caity, I would work on two collages I have been wanting to make for both Parker and Caity. There are dishes in the sink, laundry is piling up, and I haven’t even glanced at the bill pile yet.

I have to admit, while I feel guilty putting the chores off, they will still be there tomorrow (unfortunately) so it doesn’t really matter. Plus, I am going to bed excited tonight to be able to put these up in the bedroom tomorrow. The laundry will have to wait one more day because I am not in the crafting mood and decided to work on their shadow boxes tomorrow!


In case you were wondering, I used a 16×20 collage template from CutePSD on Etsy to create these collages in Photoshop and am having them printed at Costco for $6.00 each. I made the birth stats prints which are available in my Etsy Shop.

What are some of the things you have to put off that you enjoy doing for other obligations? Do you miss it? If you make time, share your secrets!
