Create – to evolve from one's own thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention.
I have intentions to create very soon. Since the merry month of last December, I have made all my Christmas and birthday cards. I’ve really enjoyed making them. Each card has been suited to the individual receiver and I have found the process therapeutic and rewarding. Father Christmases, snowmen, snowflakes, balloons, birthday cakes - they have all featured on my cards. Okay, I’m not quite ready to open my own card shop or buy a stall at the next craft fair (it’s a nice thought!) but I think I’m ready to progress to other creative things. Hence the book below ‘The complete practical book of crafts’. I excitedly purchased the book the other day, my head swimming with ideas and gift opportunities.
It’s exactly two days until pay day (hey, who’s counting?!) and I’ve already made a list of arty pieces that I require – tracing paper, paints, pens, etc and I’ve been searching my house for boxes and glasses and other such items to paint and decorate. Oh what fun I’m going to have, and probably what a mess I’ll make too.
It’s Mothers Day soon, so I think my lucky mother will be my first creative victim. Hmmm, if I could only decide which of the 300 ideas to choose from. This could take some time!
I’ll let you know how I get on.

Blame it on the book.
