And they reproduced!
I don’t remember being a very crafty person. I tackled a few projects once in a while, mostly interior design related, but nothing major. To my great surprise, in less than 6 months, I started to knit, sew, felt, paint (by numbers but still), blog (about crafts) and snap a picture everyday (yep…project 365). I also started to bake on a regular basis but that is not craft related. Although it works with the following theory: I believe that I lack stimulation in a specific sphere of my life (a.k.a. work). To compensate, I craft! Basically, softies, cupcakes, tacky paintings, wool legwarmers and origami bunnies keep me sane and depression free! I don’t know what your initial motivation for crafting was but I know that, for me, it was a lot better than a trip to the psychologist! And now that I’m hooked, I just love the fact that I can create pretty hand-made objects…now that’s gratification!
