Usually around this time of year I start getting really crafty. Scrapbooking, crocheting, baking, etc. I make lists and brainstorm ideas of homemade gifts I can start making for Christmas.
Not so much this year. Ever since I started on this full time painting gig I've been far less crafty in other areas. I think all my creative energy is just used up everyday....or else I've just become really lazy! I hope not! Maybe it's because the nearest craft store is 40 minutes away....or because crochet patterns are written in another language, one that I just don't care enough about to master.
I think I'll stick to painting. My holiday "crafts" will just be different than the usual. Maybe I'll break out the watercolors.
But there will still be baking :)
