The heart from yesterday's post was made with the Clover heart-shaped yo yo maker, which I got at JoAnn's. These were Max's Valentine's cards for school, he tucked one of these into an envelope along with a card stamped with "Happy Valentine's Day". The yo yo maker was really easy for him to use, as it has little holes where you're supposed to sew; you just follow the holes around, pop it out, and gather.
I've been dealing with some things which I don't want to go into here. But the point I want to make is how wonderful crafting is for therapy. We had a parent meeting at Max's school earlier this week, to which I went disguised as a ball of stress. We learned about a very secret craft project that we, the parents, will be doing and my heart lightened, my body relaxed, I could see colors again, the world was good. Isn't that wonderful? I shall answer my own question: Yes, it is. Very much so.
