Creating stuff energizes me. I don't mind just trying something. When it comes to crafting, creating, arranging, etc., I do not worry about doing things perfectly. I am not hard on myself. I find joy in the doing and, when appropriate, in sharing the finished product.
One of the "lil projects" I enjoy is making floral arrangements. I buy my vases at Dollar Tree and the flowers at Jewel. I was meeting two friends for lunch early in December. I don't see them as often as I would like, and I wanted to bring a holiday treat but not gift-gifts that might make them feel uncomfortable (like, "Oh shit, I didn't buy her a gift). I put together these arrangements and added some of the beautiful holiday ribbon I found at Sam's Club.
I also wanted to make an arrangement for a friend who was celebrating a milestone birthday. She's mad for plaid so I found this gorgeous ribbon online and chose colors that remind me of her. It was a pleasure to assemble and to share!
