Crafting.

I want to make things. Tangible things.

I used to fill up notebook after notebook, page after page, with drawings. I write song lyrics, when the mood strikes me, or I'm doing an online songwriting challenge (FAWM and Rocktober once, 50/90 twice).

But it's not the same. I can't use these things every day. They aren't terribly practical.

I bought buttons, jewelry-making supplies, and a glue gun. I glue buttons together and make pins out of them. It sort of makes me feel like I'm in art class in elementary school, doing something not remotely challenging or useful.

I keep browsing crafty sites, hoping to find an interesting but not-too-daunting project to do to de-stress. No luck yet. I guess I'm afraid if I try to challenge myself I'm going to mess up, and that whatever I make will look like a second-grader's class project.

Ugh.
