A is for Adore – as in I adore anything to do with crafting. Doing it, learning about it, reading about it, writing about it …even cleaning up after it….I just adore crafting.
B is for Bundle. Give me, or any crafter, a bundle of anything crafty and just watch our little faces light up.
C is for Crafting…. well it had to be really didn’t it. Crafting covers so many niches and categories. There is so many there must be a craft for everyone.
D is for Dreaming because if I am not crafting something I am secretly dreaming about what I am going to craft next. From planning a layout to making a mental wish list of craft supplies.
E is for Encroaching. I started off thinking a shoe box will hold all my craft supplies. Then I expanded to two shoe boxes thinking that would do. Before I could blink the two shoe boxes were all torn down the sides and buckling under the weight…..I needed more boxes. Now my craft supplies encroach into every spare space I have.
F is for Finishing….as in just finishing this ( insert current craft project) and then I will cook/clean/tidy ( choose anyone of them) . Family will go unfed, kitchens will stay unclean and tidying…well what’s the point of that.
G is for Giddy….with delight. How I feel just before going into a craft shop and that lovely feeling when I have new craft purchases in my hands as I make your way home.
H is for Happy ….quiet simple crafting = happiness.
I is for Inspiration. Find it anywhere and everywhere and indulge in it.
J is for Jaunty. If something isn’t straight or your not confident about putting it straight then put it at a jaunty angle.
K is for Keep. I find the most gorgeous paper and it’s just too lovely to put on a card and give away and I want to keep it all.
L is for Learning . As a crafter I never stop learning. And when I think I have learnt it all there is always something new coming out for me to learn.
M is for Must haves. Something in your crafting niche will pop up and will be one of those must haves you just have to have.
N is for Need. What ever your crafting niche there will be things you will need to have in your crafting stash. There are the basics like scissors etc but also the really really need things like, for me, the latest Spellbinder dies that Need to have.
O is for Occasion as there is always an occasion to make a card for and keep your obsession alive.
P is for Pinterest . The easiest way I can explain Pinterest is…(and apologise mother ) Pinterest is like Porn for crafters.
Q is for Quickly …I never do anything quickly. Well I mean to but it just doesn’t happen. I say I will just quickly finish the bit I am doing and then several hours later I’m still just quickly finishing off.
R is for Ribbons. I never have enough and never just the right one. I have even been known to go though my wardrobe knowing I had a top thats the perfect colour and look and then snip off the hanging ribbons.
S is for Stash. To non-crafters its a pile of mess, to a crafter its the holy grail known as a crafty stash.
T is for Time. Not enough of it and then goes in a blink of an eye.
U is for Untidy..really the only way to craft is untidily.
V is for Vanish. That perfect die or stamp or piece of card that I know would really work well on a card I am making just vanishes. I then spend so much time trying to find it again.
W is for the www. The place to look at crafts, buy craft materials, look up how to’s and so so much more.
X is for ………….oh I give up. Only thing I can think of is Xanthic which is a colour and not that exciting. Sort of yellow greeny ish type colour.
Y is for Yourself. As in when I am crafting I am completely myself. I grin from ear to ear and get glitter everywhere and thoroughly enjoy it.
Z is for zzzzzzzz …never time for sleeping.
