It's funny - this craft hobby of ours, isn't it? We craft because it's fun. We craft because we love to make. We craft because it's our hobby. But sometimes, we craft because there's no other way to say something.
Today marks the thirteenth anniversary of September 11th, and with New York being my home, the date always seems to land funny for me. I never really know what to say when the calendar comes around again to 9/11, but I always feel like I should say something.
Then yesterday, after a quick 15 minute craft-session involving a few gold foil mambi stickers and neon paint - I decided this project is what I'm saying. This project is my something.
May we never forget. May we cherish the here and now and live for today - for this very moment - because you never know what will be taken away in the next.
