Here is our month long crafting challenge! I am not posting every day, none of us need to be glued to our screens every day. I intend to post every few days with a small challenge or question. Respond to each of these posts (don’t worry, you can go back in the history to make sure you haven’t missed any!) and be entered to win a small prize! You can only enter once per post (though you can comment as much as you want)/per social media platform. In other words, you may respond to the same prompt on: our blog, Instagram, or Facebook.
Day 1 – Share why you craft
For me, my crafting is multi-purposed. One, I enjoy it and it is relaxing. If I didn’t enjoy it, I would not do it. Sometimes my kids will join me in a project, occasionally it is alone time. Often I have some sort of project I can carry and take with me while I am waiting at sports practices or to pick up a kid, during a meeting, etc. I hate to just sit and wait, so a craft like crocheting a hat is a good make and take project. Second, I also enjoy giving things that I make that are unique and usable. I have given away many hats for winter gifts, as well as jams and pickles, even homemade market totes. Third, I have started selling some of my crafts, and a side income is nice.
Why do you craft? Many of us craft as a hobby, when it should really have a priority in our life as a self-care routine, not just a spare-time routine.
