quick! create! craft night

I had craft night this week with a few of my friends.  This time we did a quick-create using paper.  We drew a theme from a basket and gave ourselves a limited time to create something based on that theme.  Like when we made the beaded bracelets I was a bit out of my element, but the exercise was fun and darn near-cathartic for me.

We talked and laughed and worked.  Our conversation was a winding road for sure.  I walked in carrying a lot of extra stress in my chest and walked out feeling rid of it.  Art with friends has a way of doing that.

Sometimes these artful gatherings feel like church.  Sometimes therapy.  Sometimes both.
Always good.

Sometimes getting out of your element is just the right thing to do.

Have a great weekend, everyone.
