Things that Make me Happy Part Two

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!

I love creating things too Sarah - I remember as a little girl I used to love doing needlework and today I get that same satisfaction when I complete a project. Can't wait to see your wedding invites :)

How lovely!
I too am making my wedding invitations. I love making things, making paper is the newest of my hobbies which is what I'm doing for my invites.

Hi and Congrats on your upcoming newbie! I live in Umbria and I'm getting married in August. I was wondering if your neighbor might be interested in making wedding my cake for me. We're having a small celebration, maybe 60 people. It's just a thought and I know you're busy planning your own life, which at this point is far more exciting! Best of everything to you!
