A while ago a website that I frequent organized a craft exchange among some of its members. Anyone who was interested put their name in and described which crafts they do, and they were matched up with a recipient. I figured I'd sew a mug rug and maybe make some homemade chocolate candy.
When I got the email about my recipient, though, I found that they like muted colors and simple designs. That is so not what I do. I considered buying some different fabric and putting something together, but I wasn't sure that I'd be able to make something that my recipient would like.
Fortunately, my recipient also mentioned that they like black-and-white photographs of urban scenes. Score! My husband and I are amateur photographers. We did it more before we had kids, when we had time to walk around the city and take photos, but we still like taking pictures. I looked through my old photos, found some that fit the bill, and edited them with an app called Snapseed.
I need to take photos more. I'd forgotten how much fun it is.
