One Word Photo Challenge: Craft (Jennifer Nichole Wells)

This week’s word is Craft and it was perfect inspiration to get me back to work on this unfinished project I started a while back, but had to put down after I started back to work.  It took me awhile to figure out my new routine, but I got it down now, so it’s back to being crafty again.

One of my good friends made me a Harry Potter cross stitch for Christmas last year and so I thought I would do something from her favorite, The Lord of the Rings.  I love the internet these days.  You can find patterns for just about everything.  The only problem was there were so many patterns it was hard to choose the one I wanted to do.  I finally settled on the Gates of Moria pattern I found on Etsy.  I can’t wait to finish it and send it to my friend.

I have been getting in touch with my crafty side again these last few months and it feels good.  How did I survive all those years without doing anything?  I guess that’s what happens when you have a job that drains the life out of you.  I was worried at first about switching jobs, especially in this economy, but it has turned out to be the best thing I ever could’ve done for me.  I didn’t really realize how drained I was until it was over.  I knew I wasn’t happy, but man it was really killing me.  Mondays no longer suck and hoping to make it to Friday is no longer a thought.  So now I am making a list of projects I want to do and I am looking forward to completing them one by one.  Nothing’s gonna stop me now.
