I collect seashells and other beach findings everywhere I go (where it’s legal to do so), and use them when I get an urge to be creative.
Just drawing on a piece of paper didn’t do it for me so I went and bought yarn, a crochet needle and some beads. I feel better now. It was a bad choice packing up all my craft stuff and taking them to Milwaukee 3 weeks before we actually move. Not being able to create freely is like having an itch in your soul that you can’t scratch.
