Did you know that January is National Hobby Month? What a grand time to take stock of why crafting makes us such happy campers.
Since I was a small child, I’ve loved crafts. I’ll never forget the first little cross-stitch turtle I made. Then, it was on to painting plaster, macramé and who could forget the era of “dip ‘n drape”? As a young married woman, I sewed dolls and painted chunks of wood for a local craft fair. Many a happy hour was spent working on these crafts.
Today, I think I need to follow my friend Mel’s advice and hang a “New Hobby Need Not Apply” sign on my front door. I’m already up to my ears in fabric for quilting, yarn for knitting and of course, my beloved paper crafting. There are not enough hours in the day/week/month to accomplish everything. But, it’s really not the finished product that matters – it’s the joy of creating.
I combined a little bit of sewing on this card I created with the new BasicGrey Hopscotch collection. The patterned paper reminds me of a quilt, too.

I would love to hear about your hobbies, past and present. Leave me a comment about what makes your hobby special and I’ll pick one lucky winner to take home this fun collection from BasicGrey! All comments must be received by midnight (MST) on Thursday, Jan. 27.
