Well, swoon you guys. After we ran our first Why I Craft article with Nikki, in Stitches, we reached out to the tireless Amy Anderson to see if she might be interested/available to do the next one. Not only does Amy run the awesome blog Mod Podge Rocks, but she also does a lot for the craft community through Crafterminds, a collective that aims to help crafters make a business of their hobby.
To our great surprise, and proving beyond a doubt that she’s indefatigable, she got back to us right away! We’re so happy to share the reasons Amy crafts. She writes:
I enjoy having a finished item to be proud of. Remember when you were a child and you showed your mother what you did, saying “I made this?” I still love that feeling. Not only that, but it’s an outlet. If I’m sad or just need to express myself, there is always something to make. What else can I do with all of those ideas running around in my head? Finally, I love the the sharing aspect of creating. Some of my favorite people are those I have met through my blog and just being online. I’m just a speck in a huge world of creativity, and I’m happy to do my part in contributing. At least as much as I can!
