Personal note: I was talking with my husband about us turning off our television for two weeks as a experiment and my first thought is “what would I do ?”. We unplugged our TV and found that their was an endless amount relaxing do it yourself projects and crafts that we tackled as we chatted together. I picked making this rug as my project while my husband choose a paracord project. At the end of 2 weeks, we found that we like TV a lot less and have incorporated craft time into our daily life.
