March is National Craft Month. We would like to recognize all of our artisans, crafters and those who indulge as a hobby. I fall into the later category, I love scrapbooking and creating things for my home. I was exposed to embroidery at an earlier age. My grandmother embroidered pillow cases, and I was tasked with wrapping the thread about those little pieces of cardboard. You know the little pieces of cardboard that identified the thread color. She also did cross-stitching, which I started years ago.
I’m also an avid scrapbooker. The above picture is my grandson, who fell asleep after a Thunderbird’s air show. My scrapbooking has become an investment. I should buy stock in stickers, paper, embellishments and the Cricut. I love to scrapbook my travels and my grandchildren. I’m currently finishing a scrapbook of my trip to the Martin Luther King Center in Atlanta. There’s nothing better than creating great memories and being able to flip through a beautiful book as I reminisce. My family enjoys going through them as well. I’m hoping to add a sunroom off my kitchen this spring, which I will also use as my craft room. Stay tuned.
What are your favorite crafts? Is it a hobby or do you sell for profit? Leave me a comment, I would love to connect with fellow crafters.
