Where are you, sewing machine? Where are you, knitting needles?!?

I've made time for lots of things during this time to help keep some balance. Blake and I have gone on a few dates here and there. We've met up with new friends and old friends. And I've (tried to) kept up a fairly good workout schedule in order to maintain some semblance of sanity and health.

But as the semester draws to a close, I realize how much I've missed CRAFTING! There's something special about making things with your own hands -- being creative and letting yourself invent. Or just relax to the repetitive clicking of the knitting needles.

So I'm so looking forward to a three week Christmas break full of friends and family and down time and some creating. It'll do my heart good :)
