Share your craft projects with the #craftingismytherapy_december community

My blog has been very neglected recently. Just before half term my beloved Paddy went missing. We looked everywhere and put up posters over the following 11 days. Just before the end of half term we had the phone call we were all dreading. Someone had found Paddy near to our house...but he wasn't alive. We bought him home and had a little funeral for him in the back garden. We are all so heartbroken, especially Magoo, who adored Paddy. We are glad that we found out what happened to him though, as the not knowing was horrible...

As you can imagine I've been feeling pretty low and haven't felt like crafting much. But more recently I've picked up my yarn and hooks again and found comfort in the repetition of adding stitches to my granny stripe blanket. It really is true that crafting is one of the best therapies - it has helped take my mind off things recently and gives me something to focus on.

I would love for you to join in with our creative community in December. Simply tag your craft projects with #craftingismytherapy_december over on Instagram and Twitter to take part.

All crafts more than welcome and you can tag as many images as you like.

At the end of the month, I will choose a selection of images that have caught my eye and put together a round-up post over on Instagram and here on my blog. You can find my Instagram here. I also share as many of your images in my Insta stories as I can throughout December.

Would you like to see what everyone was making back in November? Head over to the #craftingismytherapy_november feed to see all the fantastic creative contributions.

– Please share the love and comment on images added to the #craftingismytherapy_december feed.
– If you tag your images and use the hashtag #craftingismytherapy_december on any social media channels that would be great. This will help me to grow the community. I will retweet all your posts via Twitter if you mention me @pouchvintage
– And finally, if you would like to follow me on Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram, you’re more than welcome!
