ABC’s of Genuine Happiness – “C” Create Something Exciting

My blogging friend Monique has challenged us to the ABC’s of Genuine Happiness.

I’ve missed out on “A” and “B”, but I think I can contribute to the letter “C”….Create Something Exciting.

Well, I don’t really consider myself to be much of a creative person.  I have dreams of being creative, but I’m not usually the one to come up with the creative ideas.  However, I can follow a pattern or a recipe pretty well, and because of that, I have been able to create some pretty exciting things.

My latest “creation” was an attempt at knitting hats on a round loom.  I was introduced to this idea from another blogging friend at “Knitting Rays of Hope“.  They are a great group of people who make and collect hats to distribute to babies in NICU, and children and adults with cancer.

So, in my attempt to “create something exciting”…these are just a few of the hats that I have made.


loved the idea of being a part of something much bigger than myself, and maybe, just maybe helping out a little bit too.

And yes…it makes me happy.

Happy to create, and happy to help…appears to be a pretty good combination.

Thanks Monique for the challenge. I’m looking forward to the letter “D”!

    They’re beautiful! I knit wash cloths. LOL. I haven’t yet learned how to knit hats, but I hope to some day. I especially like your patterned hat.

    To be part of something bigger than us is the best expression of being creative. Imagine the joy in the families of those little ones that receive the hats! We can create joy for others!

      Thank you Debbie! I do think about those little ones with every hat I make – I pray for them and for their families. I know it’s just a little part, and I really do hope that it brings a little joy too. 🙂

    Oh how wonderful! I have always wanted to learn to knit, I guess it is on my list of things to do one day. That first Christmas after I learn it’s hats and scarves for everyone! Enjoy the creative process, it’s great fun and super rewarding, isn’t it! 🙂
