|Handmade Jewelry Box/Keepsake|
Growing up, I used to watch my dad creating miracles with matches. He'd light them, scrub the top with a knife, and put together ships, military tanks, jewelry boxes... One time he even made an Eiffel Tower from matches. Now, that really swept me off my feet. I'm still not quite sure where he got the idea from, but I never saw anyone doing anything similar until this day.
Now that I'm all grown, and living 7000 miles away from home, I'm trying to "copy" dad's little miracles myself. It makes me feel closer to him, it's keeping the newly established family tradition alive, and most importantly - in those moments of creating, in my own world, I get to be daddy's little girl again.
How did you start crafting? What inspires you? I would love to hear your stories.
