Keep Crafting Alive! - Articles Surfing


Isn't this a wonderful time of year? We are about to enter the "season of craziness", and by that of course I mean, The stores will soon be decorated with winter wonder-land appearances, and that feeling in your heart gets a little bit warmer. If we can think back to those childhood memories, we can probably start to remember some kind, craft ideas to pass on to the next generations also.

The feeling of "home" is often the way I like to describe it, but it goes beyond that. We should really focus now, on making sure that this does not become a lost art. Commercial use of the season can make you lazy and jaded from "doing things yourself", or "taking the time to make it from scratch", but do not let yourself forget the priceless memories that can come attached with taking the rougher road.

What are children or grandchildren going to remember years from now about spending a little time with you around the holiday season? Will it be the "fight for the furry, red doll that you tickle?" (You know the one!), the mad dash around the stores, trying to affordably fit everyone in? In some cases, this is fine. Just make sure that they are not the "only" memories they have!

Even if it was something as simple as making snow-cream with your parents or grandparents, Can you remember it? It sticks out like a sore thumb, because it's warm and happy. It makes you feel a little friendlier, and it may remind you of someone very special that you love that's not with us now. It's certainly not a tradition that you want to let fall through the cracks of time!

I now challenge you to think of at least the ten most important people in your life, and think of a nice craft (made by you) to give to them this year. It may be a traditional one that you have already planned, Great!, and if it includes the recipient helping to make it, Even Better! Try to start a few new traditions also, so that our future generations will have a little "extra" to remember about us. Let's keep crafting alive! -Stephanie

It is very important for "new" parents and grandparents to dig back into those memories, and help keep the spirit alive!
