Have you any crafty intentions this year? There are so many beautiful reasons to do craft. Doing craft can be beautiful task to do in preparation for baby. Creating something beautiful filled with your love which your baby actually feels. Quieting your mind, giving lots of quiet time for reflection and spiritual preparation. I'm sure this is part of how women prepared for birth in "the olden days"
It's also a lovely chill out time while holding a space for toddler or preschooler play. Children learn from watching you be engaged and creative producing something with your hands.
So what is your thing? What inspires you, lights you up and makes you go "Oooh that's beautiful". Knitting? Booties, a hat, snuggle cocoon, bunny rug, embroidery, seeing, quilting, doll making, dry needle felting.... There are plenty of patterns available on Etsy or Pinterest or a book called "what to knit when expecting" by Nikki Van De Car and lots of great "How to ...." videos on YouTube that teach you practically anything crafty.
I encourage you to give something a try. It's a beautiful calming slowing grounding homemaking connecting experience.
My intention is to now finish a stocking for my daughter! Xxx
