Usually this post is about crafting with your kids, but sometimes you just have to do something for yourself. Here at Graco, we have caught the Pinterest bug. A small group of us get together each month and challenge ourselves with a craft that we found on Pinterest.
You know I love arts and crafts, so when one of my co-workers suggested this plan - I was in! This month our theme was Valentine’s day, and it was my turn to host. We try to complete the craft over lunch at work, so it is important we choose our projects wisely (no 3-hour long crafts that require spray painting or the use of a sewing machine). We picked a cute Valentine craft found off of designspongeonline.com.
I have to say, I work with some very talented and inspiring people. It is always fun to get together, listen to some tunes and make something fun with your hands. Sometimes you have to force yourself to go – it is easy to feel overwhelmed with the tasks at work. But at the end of the day, I always feel a little happier when I’ve created something myself.
As a parent, when’s the last time you had to force yourself to take some time for yourself and ended up really happy that you did?
