I sometimes make time for crafting just for fun. I simply spray paint on things, make something out of extra fabric scraps, bracelet making, etc. Just the ones that I don't have to sit and work on for days. One thing I really would like to try though is woodworking. It looks tricky and a time-consuming process but fun to watch on videos. Anyway, I was cleaning my closet earlier and I found a pair of old denim jeans, which might be my next project.

Oh, I love cross-stitching. I've been thinking about doing The Last Supper and gift it to my mom.

And more expensive compared to my previous pieces, especially if I'm going to have it framed after... But I think it's going to be fun.

@MGjhaud It would be a lot of work, but you can do that.

That's great you have a knack for crafts. I don't do crafts, but I love to sew when I have time, which isn't often. Mostly I write.

I love crafts, I draw and paint, and sometimes I make cards, decorate boxes or make papercuts. I also like to knit.

I tried learning how to knit once. I remember being frustrated as a beginner. Never had the chance to perfect it.

@MGjhaud I was very bad at knitting in the beginning. My first project was a small butterfly and it was not a pretty sight But I got better at it.

I craft when bored or don’t feel like working. It’s double fun — it’s relaxing and you get to use it afterwards or maybe sell it to make money.

I'm sure you can jazz up those jeans of yours. I used to quilt, embroider, and do needlepoint, but haven't bothered in years.

@MGjhaud it depends on how much time you can spend in a day. I usually make it in a week if I can do it every day while watching a tv show.

For grocery bags, I reuse them for trash. For bottles(of uniform size and small ones), I use them for my spices cause I have lots of them that I don't use often so I have to stock them safely. For boxes, I use them for some of my old books and stuff worth keeping in storage. I also recycle broken mugs for some of my small craft supplies.

I don't do much in the way of crafting, but my wife tinkers a bit with stuff. My thing is just enjoying playing my guitar when I have a little free time to myself. Very relaxing and fun.

@MGjhaud It's a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. But in order to get good at anything you do have to have a really strong interest in it otherwise you could bore of it easily and get frustrated and just give up.
