Subject: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do?

I thought it would be nice to start a thread listing the "type" of crafts you like to make. This will also give you an idea of who likes what in case you want to email or share things with members on the board who have similar interests. :o)

Okay, I'll start...I like Jewelry Making, A variety of Christmas crafts, Baking, sewing super simple projects.

Your turn! :o)
Hugs,
Lori Jean

I love to crochet, sew, and do papercrafts, I but don't do cards or scrapbooking. I enjoy working on gag gifts and stocking stuffers, but when it finally gets warm enough here in MN you'll find me out in the flower beds every day.

I love all crafts crocheting,plastic canvas,card making, but my heart is recycling crafts I really get into the things others throw away

My first love is sewing, especially making my dolls,second is making wood crafts. I also like to do cross stitch but haven't had the time to sit and do that much anymore. I haven't gotten into the paper crafting for making cards, etc YET! LOL It's nice to see what everyone does, so this is a great post !

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Laurene, 10:24:02 01/29/13 Tue [1]

I like making paper crafts,all holiday crafts, some jewelry,angels, and I can crochet a granny square. Wish I could learn to knit. I have the original Sizzix but those seem to be out of date and hard to find dies for.

Waiting for Spring when I can go outdoors to tidy up the Flower Beds .. have Perennial Sedums that I divide and share with others. I like growing Vegetables too..mainly Tomatoes and Peppers.

Nice thread. I love everything involving fabric and thread and paper, pressed flower greeting cards and wall art, some beading, silk ribbon embroidery, ribbon flowers, and those lovely folded ribbon angels. Thank you again, Lori Jean.

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Annie~B, 11:49:39 01/29/13 Tue [1]

I do papercrafting and love the Cuttlebug for enhancing cards and projects. Small Home decor items are a favorite past-time; I enjoy finding things from thrift/Goodwill stores and giving them a make-over with different fabrics and paints. I love all the other crafts that I see on the board (sewing, tatting, beading) but I just don't possess the talent myself to do them!

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Connie Kru, 13:54:31 01/29/13 Tue [1]

I like to make cards, using my cuttlebug folders and lots of different die's that I have accumulated.

I really enjoy putting my pressed flowers into my cards and other projects.

I like to do simple sewing projects (My Grandkids were over this week and we made them a lap quilt-they loved picking out the fabrics that they wanted in the quilt.

Gardening in the summer and eating the fruits of my labor. And I have an herb garden that I love. Thanks, Lori Jean, this was fun.

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Norma, 17:54:54 01/29/13 Tue [1]

I must be the "Last of the General Crafter's and Master of None" At present I am deep into making nail polish jewelry and about to start in on the wet marbalizing and also dry methods of the painted nails look only will do it with the large flat marbles instead of fingernails. I then have a kit from Walnut Hollow waiting for me, the only thing lacking is inspiration. Hint, hint. Yes, thanks Lori Jean for the thread. Norma

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Lori Jean, 18:08:46 01/29/13 Tue [1]

my first love of crafting is to repurpose and reuse in a creative and useful way, I like to crochet, paper crafts, I don't scrapbook, I do make cards and Iris folding items.

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- penny clark, 18:52:58 01/29/13 Tue [1]

I enjoy paper crafts such as card making and scrapbooking. And enjoy going to goodwill and repurpose things. I also enjoy making Christmas ornies.
Thanks LoriJean for this post

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- crafterwannabe, 00:36:40 01/30/13 Wed [1]

I enjoy a variety of things but want whatever project I'm working on to be quick, easy and nice looking - Christmas ornaments, some paper crafts, simple sewing and quilting projects, a little knitting, small favor-type give-aways. Also love to make easy baked items to give to family & neighbors.

Great thread to liven up the message board, Lori Jean!

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Carol Klee, 03:52:25 01/30/13 Wed [1]

I like trying new crafts, what ever they may be. I do doll making, stuffed toys, embroidery, bead work, Christmas ornaments, baking sweet treats. I am trying my hand at quilting, but not good at it yet. Thank you Lori Jean. Nice to hear what others like.

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Sharon Depew, 07:11:45 01/30/13 Wed [1]

Hello All :) I will try my hand at most crafts, I knit some (love making the sashay scraves) like to make candy grams for others, love to send cards out to others, we garden in the spring/summer months and then can or freeze what we can, love flowers and plants, and like to garage sale go to thrift stores and come up with things to make from my bargains. I also like to sew!

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Doreen, 08:55:48 01/30/13 Wed [1]

I have been through so many different crafts throughout the years from flower arranging, glass painting, decoupage, paper crafts as well as beading and computer graphics...I also love to try painting occasionally and card making, I have tried parchment craft and a few other crafts, it seems I will try anything once LOL! Oh and I also love to recycle.

Great thread Lori Jean, thanks, hope more will write on it : )

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Janet_KS, 09:42:35 01/30/13 Wed [1]

Great thread Lori Jean!! I've been around the forum for many, many years, but rarely have time to post anymore. I do a couple of craft shows in November and December, so most of what I make, I sell. I have a mile long "to do" list and things I want to try, but most of what I'm currently making I've done around 10 years, because they continue to sell for me. I make dry dip mixes, pony bead banners, PC windspinners, beaded Christmas trees and suncatchers, candy bars with wrappers and refrigerater magnets. Things I'm determined to get to this year are decorated candles, a new style of magnets and LJ's pleated angels. When I retire in three years, I'd like to set up an Etsy site, try my hand at painting and return to knitting, crocheting, plastic canvas and cross stitching that I did many years ago. Wow, didn't mean to be so long winded...have a great day!!

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Ana, 13:01:41 01/30/13 Wed [1]

Wow this is a great idea..I love working with felt (not the roving)..But I pretty much like most crafts but I need it to be fast..I need instant gratification..LOL

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Brenda G, 16:22:23 01/30/13 Wed [1]

I like to do sewing,crochet,knitting, & make jewelry.

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Barb, 22:31:02 01/30/13 Wed [1]

I’m getting back into crafts as I quit doing them after my husband’s death 3 yrs ago.
I want to learn how to quill, jewelry making, and learn more about making cards.
I enjoy making cards, scrapbooking, and making gag gifts as well as other things for friends. I like simple crafts that can be completed in a few hours.
Enjoy making table decorations. Enjoy working with kids in doing crafts as well.
Enjoy going to craft shows to learn what’s out there as well as to get ideas.
I love going to garage sales, thrift stores to find things that I can make into something.
I collect craft items and patterns to use later if I like what I see. Lots of time I never do anything with them, but it always there for that rainy day that I just might.

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- craftster, 23:55:41 01/30/13 Wed [1]

Crochet, quilling and baking. I used to make a lot of crafts but after a while you don't know what to do with them and it just seemed a waste of money.

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Linda Ohio now GA, 15:12:21 01/31/13 Thu [1]

Thanks for starting such a great topic, Lori Jean.

My love is cardmaking which I do almost daily. Love my Cuttlebug, embossing folders, dies, and punches, plus embellishments such as ribbon, lace, Stickles, etc.

I also make monthly handouts for our chiropractor to give to her patients, and make little handouts to keep in my purse to give to doctors, nurses, bank tellers, waitresses, clerks, etc. It's fun to brighten someone's day.

I've taken a little 7 year old girl with cancer under my wings. She likes to craft, so I make and send little craft kits for her to complete including all the supplies and patterns. Every so often I send her a box of crafting supplies.

So as you can see....papercrafting is my love.

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Nannyday, 20:15:56 01/31/13 Thu [1]

What is A cuttlebug?

[> Re: What Type Of Crafts Do You Like To Do? -- Blazer(Darlene P.), 06:52:29 02/08/13 Fri [1]

Sue B. Ask what a Cuttlebug is? If you do a search for Cuttlebug, It could describe it better, but it is a small lightweight machine,no electric needed that uses Dies or folders to Emboss or cut out of paper and many type materials used in Crafting and Cardmaking. http://www.JoAnn.com would also be a place to see one.If you are on http://www.Pinterest.com , put in Cuttlebug Cards and see some of the items possible.I own one and love it!
Happy Crafting !
