Painting or crafting , being creative every day was a dream of my life for many years,when my children were young. As long as I remember myself my days were busy with creativity. My Mom and dear aunt had taught me different crafts’ skills. They always encouraged me to make all kind of things by hand and convinced me that the best gifts are hand-made.Beeing a child I do not remember ever buying greeting cards or presenting something store-bought. Everything was ! Of cause, now I understand, that partially the reason for that was a serious deficit of goods in my Soviet Union time childhood:) We were forced to be creative and thrifty. Now I do not have to knit a sweater , sew an apron, make an altered box, or paint a card as a gift for my friends and family. I could go to the store and buy something. But it’s just a strong desire for me to make it myself. I have to create to feel happy. I am blessed, because I can do it now.
