I once challenged someone who wanted to get into design to make something every day. Even if small, the idea is that you're always expanding and growing your creative muscles. I realized that it's been a while since I've followed my own advice. I make things every day for a living, of course, but I'm talking about things you don't normally make or try.
sewing falls into the category of making that I rarely get my hands in. but when I saw this tiny hand stitched whale kit from Hand Made Modern at Target, I knew I had to do it! It was so simple and relaxing. I spent two hours with yarn all over my bed and stuffing on the floor, happily crafting.
I wish I could say this is a gift for a child in my life, but alas, I ADORE whales and this is absolutely 100% for me.
