Day 12: Thankful for Arts and Crafts (Be Thankful Challenge)

By
Real Estate Agent with Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, Eagle Office

I’m just going to flat out admit it, I love arts & crafts!  Anything from jewelry design to knitting (my dad just taught me to knit this last weekend and I'm loving it!) to quilting to hand-crafted greeting cards… the list goes on and on.  If it involves a trip to the craft store and a table covered in artsy supplies, I’m in heaven.

A couple years ago, my mom taught me how to design and craft beaded jewelry with wire wrapping techniques.  While she was visiting last weekend we took a couple hours to break out the beading supplies and create!  I made this bracelet and earrings out of some beads I’ve had for a couple years. I love the way the set turned out, and now need to get to work creating gifts for the holidays.

Didi-I enjoy frequenting A&C events, I guess what I really enjoy is the creativity often displayed!

This is a great way to make REALLY personal gifts - one-of-a-kind jewelry you poured your blood, sweat, and tears into? (Maybe not that intense.. but still!)

Those are GORGEOUS, have a blast!

Thanks, Adrian.  I love craft shows too!

Yes, Kristi, sometimes the pieces do take a lot of time.  But gifts made with love are the best!  I agree.

Didi in Harrington, DE we have a very big arts and craft show every summer. It is usually a weekend event and it is very busy. People come from all over to attend the event. 

We all need to love what we do and have a few hobbies :)
