I am a "mulit-crafter" and proud of it!
I do all these crafts for three reasons:
1. There are so many wonderful crafts out there to do....why not try and love them all?
2. Sometimes I am not in the right mindset for a particular craft and another is better suited to where I am creatively. For example, sometimes designing a card or scrapbook layout is not going to happen - I am too tired, my mind is scattered...whatever the reason, designing something from scratch is not in the cards. So I turn to crochet, where I can follow a pattern and still feel accomplished during my craft time.
3. I want to keep my skills sharp in all areas. In particular, sewing. I sew, but not as often as I pursue my other crafts. So every so often, I pull out a sewing project so that I can keep my skills up to snuff. Believe me, after not sewing in a zipper for several years, it was like I was doing it for the first time when I put one in my pillow.
What about you? Do you multi-craft or are you dedicated to just one craft?
I'd love to hear what crafts you do, how many, and why.
