This is my first post on my twirling and pivoting. Exploring being messy. Trying stuff just because. Oh and a bit more twirling.
I have always enjoyed doing crafts. I grew up in a house where sewing, knitting and crocheting were always going on. I like using my hands and creating – even when I make a mess and toss it out. It is about the time spent enjoying something not always the end result.
So for my pivoting I want to share more of my exploring. I’m not going to overthink this and wait until I have something perfect (never ever going to happen people). I want to give people ideas and permission to make a mess. Trying something new and play. Yes play at any age.
Start looking at craft kits (everything in the package is great). Don’t look at age appropriate! I’m hoping you are not going to put small pieces in your mouth. If it is fun for a seven year old why couldn’t it be fun for us? Age is a number don’t get caught up in it.
So given that mindset I’ve been looking for craft kits. Below caught my eye as colorful and everything in the kit. I was drawn to the cactus. Easy sewing of the large pieces (they had the holes already made). The flowers and leaves were all peel and stick. Hardest part was peeling with not great nails.
Head down the craft aisle and remember no looking at age appropriate. If you like it and think “oh that would be cute to try”. That is enough. Don’t overthink it. It is a craft. A few hours at most of play.
Be prepared my pivoting involves sharing my messes and what I’m doing. I hope it gives you ideas and permission to try stuff. We should be playing at all ages.
You can always start now!
