Your projects always thrill me. Seeing the huge variety of projects that are linked up each week is amazing. Simple or elaborate, experienced crafter or beginner, each one of you makes me stop and think "I wonder if I could do that."
For someone who is intimately acquainted with depression, getting that jolt of enthusiasm and excitement can make all the difference.
It helps me want to do more than just sleep when I get home.
Which, if you ask my family (or any past roommates), is saying a lot.
So thank you.
I would like to ask you to do something. When people link up their crafts, please click on the links. Even just a few of them.
Then? Leave a comment. You guys know what it's like- checking your email 6 times per day, hoping for a comment.
Don't worry, I'm not asking you to visit all of them (you know, unless you want to). That's my job. But please, visit a few. Even if they aren't at the front of the list.
Some of these women are beginning crafters. They have no idea how to take a good picture of their project. Their tutorial skills might suck. But they need encouragement. They need to feel like they are a part of this community of creative women.
Isn't that why we all blog? To make new friendships, and learn from each other?
That's what I want this Creative Therapy to be about.
Now, here are the rules.
1. Make sure you link directly to the page your Creative Project is on, not your main blog page (please, no Etsy Shops or online stores).
2. Leave a short description of your project.
3. Grab my Craft Therapy button, and put it somewhere visible. Or you can just create a link back. I'm not too picky.
4. Visit the person above you in the Linky list, and leave them a comment. And if you'd like to visit a few more people, that would be great, too!
The linky will close at Midnight on the 14th, so be sure to link up before then. And if you don't get your project done on time, don't stress. Enjoy the projects that were linked up, and participate again next week.
