2. Making Things
Both of my parents taught me the value of making something from virtually nothing. My mum taught me how to sew and knit and do various other crafts and my thrifty dad is often to be found with a hammer and nails or a piece of string trying to find a way to fix something that is broken. Whatever the project I take great satisfaction from creating something new whether it be making something with the kids at school, baking a cake, sewing or making wedding invitations!
Unfortunately I can't claim to be particularly talented at any of these crafts as I'm not able to concentrate on any one project at a time. I'm a bit of a 'Jack of all trades, Master of none'!
At the moment apart from making my wedding stationery I'm busy stitching a gift for a very special little flower fairy. It's supposed to be a secret though so this is just a wee sneaky peak!
