We love arts and crafts. Who doesn’t? but for most people that want to get involved and take up this fun hobby, knowing where to start can be more stressful that its worth and can have people giving up before they even begin. That’s where we come in. We help you navigate through the world of arts and crafts in such a way that we make it fun.
There’s no reason to start a new hobby if its only going to give you stress. With so many things to choose from and so many roads to take it can confuse even the most zealous hobbyist.
The first step in this endeavor is to first determine what is your preference of medium. Do you want to paint and glue, work with fabrics, cut outs, beads, zippers? are you into animals, houses, colors, shapes? you can also be into all of that. By combing mediums into a project you can easily find what it is that makes your project stand out or pop. You might be surprised to find that the simplest items can really make a craft come to life.
Next I recommend you take a troll through arts and crafts super stores such as Micheal’s (found in New York and New Jersey) as that will give you a good idea of where to start. most folks will pick up a stencil, some paint, some glue and some buttons and they are off to design. Plenty of crafts start from just doing. If you spend too much time trying to make the perfect craft you will hinder your progress and might never get there.
So the best advice we can offer is to get get going. Pick anything and start. That is the hardest part taking action. once you begin a simple project you will find that it gets easier as you go along.…
