Why do you do the crafts you do, therapy, just for fun etc?

I started out doing mine for therapy after my DD died. Now I do them also for fun. I make basket and vase flower arrangements, and my DD and I have too many for our homes. We actually change flowers with the seasons, and have them for Holidays. I have also given them as gifts. Why do you like or do your hobby or craft?

  • I love crocheting and knitting because I love yarn. I love the idea of taking a long peice of yarn and creating something wearable or useable. Creating something from nothing.

  • I'm sorry about your dd. I do crafts just for fun, because I like to express my creativity. Maybe you should try other kinds of crafts since you have too many of the flower arrangments. You could try painting or sketching, ceramics, there are so many other things you can try pick up a book of crafts and look through it try a few things that look fun.

  • I do it because I enjoy it. I am looking at trying to make some cloth diapers (pocket type) after school starts so we can use cloth on our next child in diapers (we do foster care and never know) I also like to make baby quilts and burp clothes for people in our church when they have new ones. I would love to get better at sewing and make my DD's some dresses.

  • I craft because I am crafty! It keeps me from shoving the remote in dark places when my hubby can't stop changing the stations. It makes me money during craft show season and just keeps me sane!
