A Soon-To-Be Birthday Gift for Mya

Sometimes, the Creative “Bug” Bites Hard

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve completed a craft project.

My cousin’s daughter (Mya) is turning four this week.  My wife and did some traditional birthday gift shopping last weekend.  We’re all set.  Well…almost.

I decided that it was time to put the creative juices to work — once again.  I had a paper mache box tucked away and thought it would be a perfect gift.  The box has 3-4 coats of Bubblegum Pink paint on it now.  I promise to show you the project when it’s all done.

According to her mom, Mya loves pink and princess-y stuff.  So…a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and we’re good to go.

It felt really good to make something again.  In fact, while I’ve tried to push the creativity aside, it just can’t stay away forever.  It’s part of me.  And always will be.

I need to be okay with that.  And make (no pun intended) the most of it.
