Writing and crafting play tug of war with my time.

When I sit down to write, my sewing projects shift to the short end of the rope. But when my attention pulls in the crafting direction, blank pages go unwritten.

Balancing the push and pull between fabric and paper is a constant challenge.

After many months of concentrating on creative writing, I am renewing my commitment to crafting just in time for spring. My mom and sisters, too, are getting out their paints and fabrics. Maybe as the days get longer, I’ll have more time to write about what we’re crafting.

So stay tuned to the ChatterboxBeach website. The craft side is starting pull ahead once again.
