Crafting for charity

Today I had a day to think about why I craft for charities and what makes me happy doing what I do. Sometimes others may try and impose their wishes or desires/demands on you but if you stick to what is important to you and what makes you happy then you are doing what is right.

Sometimes I sit back and feel that I am not doing enough charity work but then I realize that I am only one person and have other obligations that need to be met on a daily/weekly time frame. I wish I could spend all my time crafting but that isn't possible as I need to still make an income otherwise I can't craft at all. I also have family demands that are important to me and then I also need time for myself so that I can do things that make me happy for myself.

Crafting for a charity sometimes seems to take over a great deal of time but it is very important that once it becomes a job that you step back and rethink what you are doing. You are only one person and can only do so much and no one should expect any more than that from you. Some people may think that you are not doing enough but always remember that if you are happy with what you are contributing that is what is important.

Off now to take some time to do what is important to me and that is for tonight doing something for myself.
