I don't know what's gotten into me. I've got this itch. This crafty itch that I can't seem to shake (maybe it's my crafty Mormon heritage breaking through). I just want to make stuff! And do stuff! And create stuff! The funny thing is, I don't know exactly what kind of crafty stuff I'd like to do. I have thoughts of doing stuff with a glue gun and a sewing machine but I don't own either, which is a little problematic, I guess.
I did take a creative leap and signed up for what I hope is an awesome 2-day class teaching the basics and the not-so-basics of Adobe Photoshop (to do: buy Adobe Photoshop before class). With this new camera, I've reignited my desire to take photography more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I'm not thinking I'll be the next Annie Leibovitz, I just know that photography is something I enjoy and that I find so fulfilling that I'd like to pursue it in earnest. This class will also be full of serious bloggers and photographers which I find ridiculously intimidating as I'm not really either of those (although I'd like to be). I guess taking frightening leaps is what life is all about, though.
I think it's the upcoming fall season that brings out this creative itch in me. Do you ever get the desire to be crafty? I do. All the time. In fact, this same time last year I was all into making jewelry and I even bedazzled a few t-shirts with gold safety pins. Surprisingly it all turned out pretty cute!
What was the last 'life leap' that you took? I'm sort of a self-proclaimed recluse so me signing up for this class with 20 perfect strangers is definitely a leap. Let's hope they like me!
