moments of still and craftiness

we are on a roll of all kinds of crafts. naomi found a pound of clay and then we started trying out to make some easy "tags" to go onto the gifts we are planning to make and wrap and decorate.
it has been very rewarding to work together and make things. not a lot of boundaries, just ideas and a look around some pinterest boards as well as this link...
that last link looks very cool and i'm tempted to spend next thursday afternoon taking out the clay again and get to work. we will see if i'm up to it, as i promised to myself, that i will be creative and give myself space to work, but not giving in to stress. not even if i feel like i really, really want to do it, but just can't find the quiet and still for that needed moment.
maybe it's the easy way out, but for now i do need this easy way out. there is a lot going on in our house, without me adding any more fuss or confusion to it!

so, let's stay focused and get the little moments, the few minutes of still, of quiet and celebrate those. those little bright glimpses of the advents time just around the corner.
