I have always been one of those people who when wandering an arts and crafts store suddenly wants to try all kind of artsy and crafty projects? Look at all those beads just begging to be made into something! Look at all that pretty patterned paper- I should scrapbook! Yarn! I need to learn how to make a scarf even though I have never learned to knit. I have always had the desire to make something out of nothing. I almost feel like I wasted the entire day unless I do something that feeds the creative spirit.
Some artists complain that crafting isn’t making “art”. Yes there’s a fine line between the two but often crafting overlaps into art- form, color and design all come into play. I for one think it just helps broaden an artist and sometimes provides new and exciting creative thinking. Craft On!
