A craft project a day keeps the boredom away-String Art

Like most of America, I am finding myself at home.  My "day job" hours were cut down and I'm now working remotely. The church is canceled, the youth center I volunteer at is closed. Even Operation Christmas Child activities are halted. My normally busy life is being rearranged to help control the spread of Covid-19.

I know a couple of things about me. First of all I like keeping busy, and two because of that I need downtime. So yesterday being my "office day" today became my first day of "social distancing."

 One of the things I knew I wanted to reconnect with and slow down to do was "something creative" everyday. I have been in the process of moving for 6 months. So my craft area is getting packed up.

Enter in this fun kit I found at the thrift store. It was a string art kit from Hampton Art.

I found it for $5 at  my local Goodwill and figured it would be a great way to have some creative time as all supplies are included. Bonus it said "It is well with my soul" a phrase that has had special meaning to me lately. It seem especially fitting for this time.

I was able to finish it working on it periodically throughout the day as I was doing laundry and working on dinner and the like.

I cannot wait to hang it in my new house! It's a good reminder that with my trust in the Lord, no matter what life throws at me, my soul is secure in the hands of the Lord.
