This afternoon I attempted to tackle my craft room. It is a small little room stocked with all kinds of crafty goodness, but it has fallen into major disarray. Disarray to the point that it has become ridiculously difficult to get anything accomplished in there! Not to mention difficult to find things. I have had lots of help to get it like this, but no volunteers to straighten it back up!
I started sorting and piling and pitching! Making great progress, until I uncovered a small fabric covered journal stashed behind some books up on a shelf. I opened it up and was reunited with my 18-year-old self!
It was irresistible, I just sat down and read. I don’t even remember writing it! It detailed the life of a busy UNCW student, still living at home, working as a nanny and girlfriend to Mr. Fix-it for just over a year. I record recipes, (I was teaching myself to cook), sewing/embroidery projects, a daily log of my running/exercise, my classes and grades, and all sorts of commentary about my friends, family and relationships. Sound familiar?
After reading it through, I called my Dad to thank him for such a thoughtful gift, and how much I enjoyed reliving that year! He is now taking credit for my blogging career! 🙂
The craft room is still a work in progress, but the journal is tucked back on a shelf, maybe it will make my day again sometime!
