Hello, dear craft enthusiast. The past year has been one of many challenges. We have had to deal with threats to our health, our mental stability, and our democracy. But one thing is stronger than ever; the incredible influence that crafting can have on our lives.
Personally, I would have probably gone insane by now if it wasn’t for my craft hobbies. Being locked down at home, without any distractions from work and family responsibilities, it doesn’t take long before we start to feel the mental strain. And when our mental health begins to deteriorate, our bodies tend to follow quickly.
However, that is not how things went. Because once I started diving into my favorite crafts (knitting and soap making), I felt a renewed energy and love for live.
As humans, we are naturally driven to create. When we get to enjoy this, we feel happier and become healthier.
So, keep on crafting! If you have never done it, or have taken a break, now is the time to start. It might seem like a bit of a challenge in the beginning, but I can guarantee that you get the hang of it soon.
