A Craft Evolution

Diy, CraftsGabriela SimsComment

When I first started this blog, it was called engiknitting because I'm an engineer, who knits. As I started to expand my craft horizons, I realized I loved a lot of different crafts, and I wanted my site name to cover that. In the past few years I've discovered knitting, crochet, paper crafting, sewing, and quilting. What has been so great about this is that anytime I discover something "new" to me, I can easily find a community either online or in person that has people with wells of experience. More often than not, they are happy to share their knowledge with someone eager to learn, it keeps crafts going and builds new relationships.  I feel a sense of accomplishment when I learn a new skill and that makes me want to get better at whatever it is I'm doing/learning.  I have been extremely lucky that I have encountered so many people that are more knowledgeable than I am and gracious enough to help someone learn. I hope you've experienced that same warmth in your own crafting adventures! My next task is to use my Big Shot with the new strip die and plates I just got, I will definitely post about that experience here soon! Happy crafting!
