My husband likes to make boxes, lots and lots of boxes. I like to write, lots and lots of stuff. It appears to me that we both have something in common.
We do these things because we like to do them. We've both had successes along the way and lots of failures but we keep trying. I have been published and people have bought his boxes, but we both have spectacular failures too. Our hobbies are home grown and we're proud whether anyone else is or not.
We have work that we have to do to pay the bills, and we have this creativity that calls us to make something. These things are work that gives back to you. Besides, says my hubby, it's a box and you can always put something in it.
