Handmade

First of all! Happy International Cat Day! I wish you lots of meows and a purrfect day to enjoy! Not matter if you're a cat person or not! Creativemeow is a blog where everyone is welcomed.

Today I want to talk about my personal experience and joy of making handmade stuff. I actually never considered myself very good at knitting, weaving, sewing or even crafting. I never had the patience or time for this. My passion for crafting grew when I moved to the US and I had plenty of time to do things I never tried out before. I visited workshops, classes, and I watched tutorials about everything that just draws my attention.

I just needed to find a place where I can work creatively and where I can put effort and energy in. Leaving family and friends behind and moving to a new country isn't always easy. Working creative helped me a lot fo free my mind and keep a positive attitude even when I felt sometimes alone or misunderstood. 

Working on paintings, self-made gifts and surprises give me joy. I love to reconnect with my hands and feel different textures in my hands. It is a very satisfying feeling when a project grows with the help of your very own hands. I never sewed before, I never did a weaving project before, but I kind of fell in love with crafting adventures.

Learning new things gives me a thrill, and growing into a new person everyday satisfies me. It actually started with a blanket project, but soon I realized how much joy it is to create things and give away as a present to loved ones. I started to connect with other creatives locally and to attend workshops. Now I work through the year on different projects and around Christmas time I wrap up my best work and send it to family and friends as a surprise.

Of course, sometimes projects don't transform in what I've imagined, but I learned to relax. If a project turns out to be totally stupid I just shrug my shoulders and simply start over again. Reusing what I can save and be thankful for at least to learn a valuable lesson. Mistakes are there so we can make them and learn from them.
