Question by Geedebb: Are you a hobby person & or crafter ? What is your Favorite ? How long have you been doing it ?
Let me know your age, and how you got started ! It would also be interisting to know where you are from . I live in Florida , and I have several crafts I enjoy . I do Scrapbooking , floral arranging , plastic canvas needle point , I make Cigar box purses and gift baskets !
I'm 52 yrs. old , and my late Aunt Betty got me started crafting 30 years ago to keep me busy while my children were away for the summer to keep me from going crazy !

Lately I've been miniature painting. It's sort of taken over my living room with paints and files and all the etcetera. I enjoy it a lot.

    I’m 34 and like knitting and beading. I taught myself both about 1-2 years ago. I also like calligraphy, but need to get back to doing that.

    I got started a few years ago when my mom got into crafts. i was always a fan of the arts but then i noticed crafts can be just as fun and more rewarding.

    Let’s see, I’m 25 and do lot’s of crafts on and off as the whim takes me.

    My favorite is to make jewelry, but I don’t do it constantly, just when I’m feeling inspired. I’d like to learn more in the silver smithing vein.

    I like to make cards using stamps and such and have just made a bunch of Halloween themed ones. I’ll attempt some x-mas ones if I have the time. (I hope I do!)

    When I was younger, I made ten thousand pot holders and recently got back into weaving more pot holders.

    I’d like to learn how to do free-style embroidery as it’s much less confining than counted cross stich.

    I work on other stuff, but not enough to include here. I love to craft!

    Oh yeah, I plan on making fizzy peppermint bath salt soaks, and brown sugar/vanilla lip scrubs for x-mas this year for all of my girls, I’m really excited about that!

    Yes, I enjoy crafts, mainly beading, but also crochet and tapestry, and drawing, if that counts.

    I am 27, and have been into crafts since childhood.

    I am 26, and I crochet a lot; but I also make jewelry. The jewelry I make is under the ‘chainmaille’ or ‘maile’ category. I got into that when I went to the Michigan Renaissance Festival and saw a bracelet that I liked. My boyfriend at the time bought it for me, and after I got home I noticed it wasn’t of the best craftsmanship and decided I could do better. I did some research online for supplies and have been making and selling it for 6 years.

    I have tried several things and i am good at them, but with 4 kids at home and 1 with Diabetes I don’t find the time to do them. But the things I did were making pinatas, and glass boxes with preserved real butterflies, and cool kids cakes. I am 33,and I just seen theese things in a magazine with dirrections on how to do them thought it would be fun si I did it.

  8. PAPABILL says:
