IM fairly new to crafting but i love it. I need some ideas on simple crafts i can do. Kinda go through a rough time and crafting seems to really help take my mind off things. Pics please.

I saw a felt flower scarf on pinterest and made one. IM so impressed that i actually completed something that looks like it did on pinterest.
Sorry its sideways i don't know how to fix that.

That's really good. Great job keep it up. I craft when I need to lose focus on life. It's great that way.

Fabulous job. Have you considered learning to knit or crochet. I know what it is like to be having a hard time. I am currently trying to keep my brain busy too by learning new things. I know that knitting and crochet can keep your brain busy and produce beautiful things. There is always something new to learn too. I've been doing it for 30 years and still learn.

Cute!  I love your dress form :)  I love crocheting, sewing and knitting.  I also make bows when I'm in the mood lol but I try to dip my hands in anything I can that's crafty!

I crotchet, paint, make hair bows (fun and cute) make tops for DD easy ones like pillowcase top/dresses, baking is good too.

Crafting is a great mental break from life - plus it brings beauty back into your life when things are kind of ugly.

So with that in mind, what do YOU want to do?? What would benefit YOU?? I love making cards - and if I give them to people, it's almost like handing someone a bunch of flowers - instant smiles! I like making stamped jewelry, partly because I get to use a hammer and I can literally bang away my frustrations. I like crocheting - I get depressed in the winter - and so I busy my hands with making hats and scarves to donate. Preemie hats and diaper covers to the hospitals.
The rest of my crafting hobbies are pretty much over-priced self-indulgences, but these ones my kids also enjoy so its worth it to spend time with them this way rather than in front of a tv.

Thanks. Got the dress form from hobby lobby. My DD named her Marisa.
I just knitted my first item. Its a red heart sashay scarf. It looked simple enough and it was.
