Hey crafty crafters! It's Melinda from over at Under My Umbrella. It's good to be back crafting with the girls of WYLTC. I found something new about my crafting identity this week....I'm an emotional crafter. Yep, that's right. Let me explain. Late last week my grandfather passed away. He was an amazing grandfather. You know the type that carries jelly beans and lemon balls in the trunk of his car for grandkids. He was always happy, had the most contagious laugh and would always hug and then wink at you making you feel loved and special. He will be missed. The day he died my inspiration for my WYLTC project struck and I knew I wanted to make something in memory of my grandfather and it just happens to go with the theme of "shelves".
It did have it's challenges. The wood was splitting and cracking off but hammering was therapeutic. Creating makes a person feel good. Hopefully you have all experienced that feeling!
