I used to love giving out handmade cards. The long drawn process of making cards gives me a kind of satisfaction I cannot describe. It’s been a long while since I made cards.
Since I married and moved in with my in laws, space became a constrain. There was no table space for my crafts. I still do crafts but on the floor. Working on the floor doesn’t allow high precision so I no longer make cards which I feel needs high precision.
As time passed by and we had our lovely children, space contrain was not my issue alone. It is now the whole family’s issue. Haaa. Children study at foldable tables, we sleep on mattresses on the floor, and so I slowly stopped crafting and naturally stopped gifting. Well I still buy gifts but because I buy them, I gift less often.
This year I am due to go for a surgery. The thought of going through a surgery made me do a lot of thinking. I treasure everyone more. I show more concern to friends whom I have not kept in touch with. It’s not the end of the world but I feel a strong sense of time lost. Perhaps I think too much.
I am back to gifting this year as it helps me reconnect with people, rediscovering what they love or no longer link. Spent an afternoon wrapping up the gifts.
Season’s Greetings everyone!
May health and happiness be with you always!
