Discover Why I Love Crafting

Crafting is something I have enjoyed for as long as I can remember. It is an outlet for creativity, a way to give joy, and a social connection. At Crafted by Mimi, I want to share my creativity with others, and find pleasure in encouraging those I teach to discover an outlet for their creative side. There is an undeniable joy in crafting a card, scrapbook, or other hand-made gift, but the most joyful moment is when you give your creation to someone and it brightens their day. Sharing the joy and friendship of crafting is a thrill all its own. The more people sitting around the table, sharing ideas and laughter, the more fun is had by all. I think this is especially true with hand-made gifts like cards and scrapbooks.

Crafting has numerous forms, from sewing and painting, to crocheting and papercrafting. And that’s just the beginning! I have enjoyed learning each of these forms of creative expression, and I want to share my experience with others. This brings me joy because I get to meet new people, share my successes and lessons, and witness the joy others experience creating a gift for someone they love.

When my daughter was born I started sewing and have kept it up for 40 years. Scrapbooking became important to me 16 years ago when my grandson was born. I wanted to be the storyteller in my family and keep the memories alive. Stamping and card making followed close behind and I feel that I'm sending a part of me in each envelope.

So much of what I do at Crafted by Mimi makes my corner of the world a brighter place. Join my friends and I at one of our next classes or club meetings and you’ll soon agree that crafting with your hands makes for joy filled hearts. As you can see, I really do love it all.
