Parenting is not supposed to be lonely. A shared interest with other moms was a good way for me to stay in the loop. Each person is different. If the idea of crafting personalized baby gifts doesn't make you want to get to work. Maybe the availability of companionship will! New moms need adult conversation, companionship and a well stocked stash of personalized baby gifts for showers and birthday parties. Right?
It may take a few tries to find just the right baby craft that suits you. That's where a class comes in really handy for me. The supply list is usually not that long which means less initial outlay of money! The teacher usually has all of the bigger ticket items already on hand. No need to go and buy a lot of equipment and then discover that you really don't like quilting or throwing pots. You really would not want to go out and buy a potter's wheel before you knew what to put on it! Even if you don't pursue the vocation, you will come away from the class with at least one nicely done personalized baby gift that you made yourself.
