this probably doesn’t technically qualify, but…

creation in its various forms has been put on hold for the time being. i moved to michigan on monday, but only to the temporary house we are renting until our house is available in mid-august. we are trying to buy minimal groceries, and leave as many boxes packed as possible, until we move into “our” house. so, i am waiting to buy things needed for kitchen creation (flour, sugar, vanilla, spices, etc.), and most of my other hobbies are packed up. no crocheting, painting, etc. for awhile. i also haven’t started my assistantship yet, so i am feeling somewhat restless and as though i am in limbo. for some reason, i had an intense craving to do a jigsaw puzzle the other day. so, mike and i bought a couple and finished this 1,000 piece puzzle earlier tonight. it is not technicaly my “creation” but hey, we assembled it, so that counts for something, right? in any case, the next time i complain about my terrible attention span, remind me of the five hours i sat working on this last night!


About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
