Do you have a hobby or passion that makes you happy, and have you shared that passion with friends and family? Surprisingly, many of us tend to keep these sort of things to ourselves. II was recently asked by Nutella to write about something that I am passionate about, and I shared my passion for making homemade cards and sending handwritten notes to friends – something that is sadly becoming a thing of the past. That prompted me to invite my sister-in-law over one day last week, to share my passion for making homemade cards.
Share what makes you happy.
I invited my sister-in-law over and pulled out a bunch of my scrapbooking and cardmaking supplies for an afternoon of creative fun. I shake my head in bewilderment realizing that in the 20+ years of knowing each other, we’ve never really spent an afternoon doing crafts together.
Chrishelle was quick to say that she doesn’t share my creative gene, but once we got started she surprised us both. I think her cards turned out even better than my own.
That afternoon was not just about the card crafting though. It was also a chance for us to get caught up with each others lives, laugh at each other and just have fun. It was also a chance for me to share another of my other favorite things with Chrishelle. All that crafting worked up an appetite for some Nutella.
I am so glad I shared my passion for paper crafts with Chrishelle, and have a feeling there are many more creative afternoons in our future. When is the last time you shared what makes you happy with a friend?
