How did you know?? Newbie here.

I know that may be a strange title. But I'm wanting to start crafting, but I don't really know what to do.  I've dabbled with several things, but I just don't stick with it.  I enjoyed polymer clay but can't seem to think of any creative ideas of my own.  I'm just wondering what got you ladies to doing something you enjoy??

 I just do stuff. If it turns out well I do it again. If I can continue to do it well I make it a habit. If it turns out bad I'll give it another shot, if it continues to turn out bad I drop it and move on.

I actually crochet but not as good as my sister is.  I am learning to sew and knit.  I just sewed my dd's curtains and don't like them lol!  I finished making her a regular fleece blankey.  I just learned how to thread a sewing machine and bobbin.  So here is my first ever blankey that I did two nights ago.  I did that without a pattern too and just wanted to show what I did lol!  I'm a beginner so don't go too hard on me lol!

I got started through my family when I was real little. I have always had an inate fascination with yarn. I always tell my kids to find something that they can't keep their hands off of.

I just made something for my son (Monster Storage) and he loved it, and so did everyone I showed it to, and they wanted one, so eventually that's became the primary thing that I make. I have always crafted and created art though. I paint, do ceramics, sculpt, make jewelry, I can knit and crochet (washcloths, haha!), polymer clay sculpting, spin fiber from a drop spindle, wet and needle felt, quilt, sew, and a few other small things like wire wrapping and such. But making monsters is my big thing because I love to do it and there's a demand for it. If you enjoy clay, maybe try bead making, or just sculpting characters you think up?

I started sewing at age 5. I was naturally drawn to it.

The rest of my crafting came from having my daughter. I suddenly wanted to be able to make her beautiful things. My passion for baking started from wanting to make her amazing birthday cakes. I'm now hoping to open a bakery one day. My love of crochet came from the fun idea of making her dress up hats and toys in all her favorite characters. I now have a craft store where I sell them as well.
