#reverb10 – Make – prompt 6

December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

I don’t remember the last thing I made – though I’ve had heaps of ideas and a strong desire to do so – there simply hasn’t been the time.

Next year, I’m hoping will be different. I’d love to get stuck into my garden and get it into shape. I’d like to get crafty with presents, to make some more jewelry, to sew some items. I’d like to do some painting for pleasure, or drawing (actually going to try and find some time for that this month). I’d like to just have the time and space to enjoy making things, without the pressure of life on top of me.

Six months from now, life will be so different and I will have that time. I just have to hold out until then.

    1. lol we make stuff with the kids all the time – I’m referring to things I want to make by myself, for myself or others. Adult makey things. Or just having the time to really get stuck into the garden, or finishing painting walls etc.

  1. When the kids were smaller, we made lots of things together, and I made lots of things by myself. The solo projects were mostly sold, but we kept the kid things till they got so grotty we couldn’t stand them any more. Wait! We still have the island we made of sheetrock scraps, joint compound, acrylic paint, and a lot of small sea shells and colorful pebbles we found at the beach. It sill looks pretty good, and the kids still want to keep it, so we do.
    We made a trebuchet on the dining room table. Nearly killed the chandelier and some old cranberry glass in the china cabinet. :)TX

    1. oh trebuchet’s are fun! I am only just starting to get some hands free time, and it’s lovely. Though I spend most of it on writing related things at the moment. I’m really looking forward to having slightly older kids and more time to get back into all the crafty stuff I love.
