I have been wondering for quite some time now why I haven't been crafting much, well almost like none and after conversations with BFF Carmen and BFF Karen I got it figured out! My problem is that I was always crafting something because I needed prizes for my Christmas party and since I don't have a Christmas party anymore I am without a driving motivation to get chit done.
With this revelation of mine I have decided I need a driving motivation to craft all the time and the only thing I can ever think of is prizes. I loved having my Christmas party and it really was a year long labor of love for a few hours of fun and time with friends. It's a lot of work to get ready for the party and I kept wondering if it was all worth it. I always questioned if the prizes were good enough and if everyone understood just how much love I poured into each detail of the party, from personalized goody bags to every card in the card package prizes. I think maybe I got burned out on it but now I am thinking it is time to gear up and plan one for this year.
I am convinced I do better with crafting more when I have a motivator. Making prizes is a wonderful motivator...at least for me!
