Our cable and internet was out for a few days and to pass the time, I started sorting my son's tens of thousands of Legos; something I have daydreamed about doing for years. It was so cathartic that for days after our technology was up and running, I continued to separate each and every piece into a system of organization.
|I found these little drawers at the Dollar Tree!|
|Picked this cart up at Michael's for 60% + another 20%= $30!|
Well, lets just say Legos had me at hello. I started assembling and my heart skipped a beat. Tinkering with color and texture and design was a familiar kind of wonderful but the unexpected surprises that came about by following the building instructions was such a rush. Within a few days I had sore fingers, an amazing mini city with all kinds of cool features and lots of new skills for creating Lego details.
Since that first set, I have taken apart and rebuilt several of my son's sets with a wonderful sense of satisfaction. It has been a guilty pleasure, but I realize I cannot neglect my craft life any longer. Without paper, glitter, Cricut and bling, I am not my true, authentic self. So I am here, hat in hand, ready to create the very best crafts I can. I will make it up to you, I promise.
