Craft Mania: How Many Crafts Can You Do in a Lifetime? 30 So Far…

Craft Mania -- How Many Crafts Can You Do in a Lifetime?

A lot of women find joy in do-it-yourself crafts… and I’m one of them.

So many crafts, so little time!

Maybe craft mania started from being a Camp Fire Girl in the 60s and learning a new activity at every meeting (my mom was the troop leader and I remember her scrambling for unique craft ideas). The fact that she displayed my clumsy “creations” throughout the house — and wore the clothes I sewed for her after I learned to sew in junior high — encouraged me to try even more things.

The following list reveals all the craft “phases” I’ve been through…so far.

  1. Ceramics
  2. Knitting
  3. Crocheting
  4. Art journaling
  5. Sewing
  6. Paper cutting (Scherenschnitte)
  7. Applique
  8. Papier-mache
  9. Calligraphy
  10. Scrapbooking (paper) / December Daily / digitital scrapbooking
  11. Stenciling
  12. Wreath making
  13. Jewelry making
  14. Macrame
  15. Floral design/ flower arranging
  16. Rug hooking
  17. Weaving (potholders, as a kid!)
  18. Crewel
  19. Embroidery
  20. Needlepoint
  21. Quilting
  22. Origami
  23. Decoupage
  24. Photography / photo a day
  25. Journaling
  26. String art
  27. Quilling
  28. Zentangle
  29. Artistic lettering
  30. Rubber stamping

And there will, no doubt, be more!

How could anyone browse Pinterest and not want to make all the cute things you see there?!

    Hi, Diane,

    Since I retired, it seems like I’m taking a lot of classes that are crafty. I took a class to make decorations with holiday greens at Phipps, and I’m taking a flower arranging class there now. I took a cookie making class in the Strip district, and I signed up for a cake decorating class next month! It’s been fun!
