Craft Projects for Stay At Home Time

I’ve always been a ‘maker’, even before that term was a thing. I’m an artist. I have to have at least one (or more!) craft projects in progress at all times.. And as a mom, back when I was raising my kids, crafts helped me keep my children occupied and provided quality family time. More recently, I’ve been able to engage my cute grand kids by sharing a variety of craft projects. And it makes my heart sing watching them experience the joy, pride, and sense of accomplishment that comes from having made something truly unique with their own hands. After years of collecting supplies, my work shop is filled with lots (and lots!) of different craft project materials. From beads, wire, stones, and pliers for jewelry making, to yarn and looms and crochet hooks for weaving, wood pieces, vegetable tanned leather and burning tools for pyrography and leather tooling, colored pencils, pastel chalk, construction paper, and artist tablets for drawing, rolls of sheet metal for embossing. I have a lot of supplies, lol! But sometimes, with all those supplies, the options become overwhelming. That’s why I am excited by the idea of a monthly craft project or box subscription! Sometimes organized simplicity is best. And especially when it’s something someone else has put together for me! Just grab and go! So, I thought I’d share some of the fun and exciting projects I’m thinking about doing, in case they might look fun to you, too!
