My friend Donna and I have taken to occasionally trying crafts and projects that are new to one or both of us. When her peach tree was overloaded, we made jam. Then when I got the bug up my butt we made soap (the soap works great by the way).
The other evening Donna asked me what was up next for our crafting adventures and, I'm stumped. I want to try something new but I've tried a lot of crafts over the years. Needless to say I'm turning to you for advice and ideas.
Here are all the crafts I can think of that I have tried (not mastered mind you but tried):
fiber crafts: sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, embroidery, latch hook, weaving, screen printing
industrial arts: woodworking, woodturning, woodburning, welding, carving/whittling
paper arts: calligraphy, scrapbooking (poorly), paper mache (poorly)
other: ceramics (including wheelthrowing), wreath making, ukranian egg dying, glass fusing, stained glass, lost wax casting (didn't get far on this one)
Butter making is getting some blog airtime lately but I've tried that too (my mom does it with her preschool class)
So what else should we be trying? A cooking art? Souffles? Oh wait, I don't have a kitchen! What about bookbinding? Crewel? Macrame?
All ideas welcome.
In the meantime, I'm off to make another custom tv cover. I've made a couple custom sales through the etsy site. Let me know if your tv is feeling naked.
