Day 11

The cool thing about starting this blog and crafting or making something everyday is that the possibilities are endless. I can do anything. Just as long as I try to indulge that creative side that I've been ignoring for so long.

Yesterday, we had my daughter's 3rd birthday party at our house. It was exhausting and stressful. I thought I was going to lose my mind. With all the preparations and planning, there was no way I was going to pick up a pencil, a paint brush or a hook. I could not bring myself to do anything. The party was going to break me.

But then I realized that I had indeed made something. I took various ingredients, mixed them together and created something from nothing. I made a birthday cake from scratch. I melted chocolate. I mixed. I baked. I frosted. I made a gloriously wonderful cake and I had never done that before.

  1. I was about to say..."what about the cake??" Cakes are so creative - and I think it's the ultimate creation in that you can see it, smell it, touch it AND TASTE IT! But I guess it's not perfect since you can't "hear it." Oh well - 4 out of 5.
