And then I go along I can change it and recreate it to something totally different than what I started out with or make several different varieties.

I love gems and jewels but lets face it I don’t have those things in real life but I can play with paints, pearl cardstock, glitters and shiny embellishments and that makes me happy. The bonus is that I get to gift the things I make and it makes me even happier to give.

    It makes me happy, and the creative problem solving process is a good mental challenge.

  47. Debbie Belanger

  49. Gail Plaskiewicz

    I craft because I can pick out a whole bunch of colorful beads, string them on some wire or stretchy cord & make a beautiful bracelet like I did last night. 6 each of yellow, orange, green, pink, blue & silver/white seed beads with grey stars as spacers that are gem stones but I can’t remember their name & make a bracelet for my dance teachers birthday party. I craft because I can turn a plain black & white coloring book page into something amazing with markers, glitter gel pens, colored pencils or crayons & sometimes Stickles & get 44 likes on Facebook with the most amazing comments! I craft because it just gets me right here when I see the smile on the faces of the people I give gifts to of stuff that I made. I craft because I used to do craft fairs & I loved my customers when they would buy something I made & then come back to my next show to buy something else. I craft because if I didn’t, during this virus I would go insane! LOL I also craft because I would rather it be made by me then some factory in China where it will fall apart next week.

  50. Maxine Johnston

    I craft because I get to see the world and all that it has to share. What more could I ask for.

  51. Martha Gunckel

    “Crafting” means different things to different people. I believe that God created us in His image to reflect Him in all His glory in whatever we create. ” God took dust from the ground and fashioned man with His hands and breathing His breath into Adams nostrils and man became a living being ( Genesis 2:7). We have in us the ability to craft/create something. I like watercolors that reflect God’s created light, and have been making cards for 30 years. I love learning about new products and seeing what other creative people have made. Color is a jewel from God’s creation, being reflected light. He gave us eyes to appreciate and be thankful for all we see in His creation. He gave us ears to hear the songs of the birds chirping, the wind rustling the trees, voices of loved ones, and so much more. “Be still and know that I am God” For me that means be silent to hear Him. He gave us tongues to taste our food and have pleasure in it. We can smell good and bad smells to our benefit. Then lastly is our sense of touch. Our hands execute and manipulate the card stock, cutter, stamps, ink, watercolors, brushes and pens, markers and paints, adhesives of all sorts, and a great variety of other tools. Sometimes I collect a few items and just “play” with them and let my senses and brain coordinate the creative process. Other times I use stamps and relax and just color the image, and then decide the arrangement of the card and any other items I want to try. Sometimes the creative decisions happen quickly and other times it happens slowly. Creating in the kitchen is another passion. Creating brings me joy and true joy is from God and in God. I am thankful my life includes being creative. It is a blessing!

  52. Janice Buttram

    I craft because it makes me feel centered; because it makes me feel connected to my father (who was extremely talented but is now gone); and lastly because it makes me feel special to create a thing…especially if it is made with things that would have ended up in a landfill.

  53. Mary Steinhardt

    I craft because I like to be creative and keep busy. Anything that I can create with my hands I am happy. I particularly like to craft or create my artwork on a rainy day.

  54. Lauren Siegel

    I craft because it makes me feel creative, productive, and complete.Sometimes I feel kind of empty and down; crafting changes that, and makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something.
