It’s Wednesday which means that it’s time for wishcasting with Jamie Ridler. Today’s prompt is
What Do You Wish to Make?
So, so, so, so many things.
I really wish I were crafty. I blame it on my Sner and my GrandSner. I think it’s all their faults that I’m not more so than I am. They’re both talented in the traditional crafty senses. I’m not. They sew. They crochet. They knit. All that stuff. They didn’t teach me. They could have. But they didn’t. So it’s all their fault that I don’t make *those* kinds of things.
…which is all said in jest. While they are both incredibly talented seamstresses (my Sner made my wedding dress, and it was GORGEOUS), and there wasn’t really any attempt to pass the skill on to me, at the same time, I wasn’t interested in those things at that time. So. Joking. (don’t feel bad, Sner. It’s all good. As long as you will do my sewing long-distance ;))
As for the things I wish to make? I wish to make a life full of love and laughter – tightly knit
with family and friends who are ready at a moment’s notice for a good time or support or an adventure. We are well on our way to that. It is a an INCREDIBLE life that I have. Despite the bumps in the road, I can’t complain.
…and I wish to make a beautiful, comfortable home. I wan
t our home to be a place that people want to come to and when they’re here, they don’t want to leave. I have a vision for it, but I haven’t had the time to make it happen. I know what I want on the walls. I know how I want the furniture arranged. I know how it should all come together. And it all starts with how I want people to feel. We’re getting very close to how we want it to look on the outside. The landscaping…at least in the front…is coming together. But the interior. Needs some help.
…and I wish to make great photographs. I’ve gotten the husband to agree to my plan to afford my new camera. I’m going to go ahead and order
it so that I have in time for the long Memorial Day weekend. I can’t wait to get to play with it and get back to taking pictures. I’ve been using my phone a lot, but it’s just not the same.
…and I wish to “make” sense. In my thoughts. Of my life. Through my writing.
…and I wish to make connections. So won’t you leave a comment please? Or subscribe to my blog?
