Do you ever stop in the middle of a project, look around at the mess you’ve made and just start laughing? I had a moment like that last night after making 40 pompoms by hand. Why? Why would anyone in their right mind make 40 pompoms? Good question!
I saw this adorable wreath over at Bluebird Vintage and I decided that I simply must make one. Oh, the situations I get myself into for a good craft. But isn’t that half the fun of crafting; the absurdity, obsession and perfectionism that surface when you are in the crafting trance. I was at the yarn shop recently and I overheard a couple of knitters talking. One was mentioning that she would never dream of paying over $100 for a sweater, but she would gladly spend $200 on yarn to make one (and that is not even accounting for the value of her time!)! How absurdly funny!
I am thankful for these funny little moments that make up my day. Now, enough reflecting…it’s back to the pompom sweat shop.
