I live in Florida - or as I call it, The Surface of the Sun. There are no seasons. We have "hot", "dang hot", "gates of hell hot" and "Christmas". If I were to craft for my "seasons" all I could make would be hot pads and bookmarks. So what's a crafter to do - I'll tell you!
For any crafter who lives in a climate like mine, there are three simple rules to make your creative life amazing. These have been my little secret for years so please, prepare yourself for the wonderment ~
- Marry a man who is constantly cold. It's true, if it gets below 78 around here you will find Pokey bundled up like Nanook of the North.
- Send your beloved child off to university as close to the Arctic Tundra as possible. In our case, that would be South Dakota.
- Donate all your beautiful things. I ran a charity for years that was devoted to making and sending hats to our troops. We branched out to making items for wounded soldiers at prestigious medical hospitals. The economy shut down our operation but I still create and donate to others who survived the turn.
