I don't know about you but I NEED to be creative if I don't I am unhappy. There is something about taking an image from my head and seeing it come to life.
It's really crazy the smell of a glue gun this time of year reminds me of the good old days crafting with my Dad. I enjoyed selling at craft shows with him. It was time together that we truly enjoyed. It was cute to see him get excited when I taught him a painting technique.
I wonder if that is why I have been a little emotional the last few days thinking of my Dad. He has been gone for almost 3yrs. He was the glue that held my family together and I didn't even realize it.
I'm blessed that I have wonderful memories of him and crafts that he made for the kids and me.
That July I went to visit him in NY I made this cake for him and his wife.
This was the last time I was able to spend time with him. I am thankful for that.
Thanks for sharing these special moments with me. My dad is part of the reason I am the crafter that I am today. I do this to honor him. :) I hope to pass it along to my children. There is something special about sitting around a table with my children while we all work on a craft project.
