Happiness is being immersed in creativity
I was passing through a handicraft store,when this couple caught my attention and took me back to pre-social-media days when all my free time was spent in various handicraft activities including making dolls. Having a creative hobby can liberate us from so many things. I have not made dolls for sometime now, but till today, I have made more than 100 dolls of different culture and costumes. Whenever I make, I am so immersed in the activity that outer world ceases to exist. Right from designing the clothes and jewelry, to getting the expressions closer to reality, the mind is completely occupied around the activity.
Looking at the finished product, there is a sense of achievement. It feels good to stare at your creation of making something from odds and ends. The dolls have life, they talk to you, and they begin to have an identity you can relate to.
Maybe i should make one more soon.
