Let There Be Crafts!

By Twistie

Some would say that man is more evolved than the ‘lower’ beasts because of higher thinking, others because of tools. Me? I say man is the crafting animal. Doubt me? Just think back to Sunday School.

Adam and Eve take a bite out of the fruit of the tree of knowledge, and what’s the first thing they do? They notice their naughty bits hanging out and craft up a fabulous line for fall out of fig leaves. They didn’t stop to invent fire or condos or faster, more efficient ways to kill  Bambi for dinner. No, they invented the Project Runway alternative materials challenge. And Tim Gunn  (Call me, Tim!) sayeth unto them: Make it work.

From there on, man has been crafting away for both practical and decorative purposes almost nonstop. We sew, we knit, we embroider, we crochet, we carve, we decoupage, and so on, and so on, and so on.

Whatever your favorite craft to do, or to collect, or just to gawk at, chances are you’ll find it discussed here. Instructions? Sometimes. Cool work being done by real people right now, sometimes for sale? You betcha! Dribs and drabs of crafting history? Absolutely. Sources of resources? Oh yeah. It’ll be here.

So come back by often. Sit a spell… and bring your craft with you.

    That is a truly original spin on the Adam and Eve story. *G*

    You know me. I’m nothing if not capable of an original spin on a well-worn trope.
