Creative Things That Don't Include Writing
I thought I'd do a different sort of blog post today and share some creative projects I've been working on! I haven't been doing a lot of writing lately, although my novel outline and research are going well. I've found that I still want to make something, so I've been looking for other ways to be creative until I'm reading to start writing my novel.
Anyway, here are some photos of things I've made.
I've made a lot of wreaths, but this one isn't going to be sold or given away, it's just for me! This one is a first of it' kind because I used colored paper in it. It's actually from a 2015 calendar that I thought was too pretty to throw out.
I’d been working on this jewelry organizer for a few weeks because I’m very slow when it comes to designing things. I had planned to make a jewelry tree, but I couldn't find enough sticks of the right size. So I came up with this design. The main part of this organizer started life as a wooden cutting board. (Actually, it started life as a tree, but who cares.) I painted some birds on it, added a few hooks, and hung it on the wall. It works well. I'm going to hang my jewelry for the rest of my life now, there is no going back.

Of course, a creative day isn’t complete without delving into the culinary arts. So I made a pie. It’s the first pie I’ve ever made, and it turned out pretty well, and, it was gluten-free. And, there’s a tribute to the Wal-Mart logo on the top of the crust, which was not intentional.
What creative things do you like to do in addition to writing? What is your favorite thing to craft?
