I’ve been in the middle of a art and craft identity-crisis for awhile. I like to say I have “too many hobbies for my own good” and usually mean it jokingly. But it might be time for me to come to terms with the fact that it may be hindering me a little. In the past five years I have dabbled in….
I have a ridiculous collection of craft and art supplies. I spend a couple of weeks learning everything I can about each of these genres and before I know it, I’m moving on to something new. I can’t say I’ve mastered anything on that list.
I want to be one of these people that finds their craft, hones their voice and masters it. But nothing has ‘stuck’. Maybe I just haven’t found the right craft. I love making things. I want to make that my someday career (or at least a small business to earn us some fun money).
Maybe I need a creative vacation. Or perhaps I need to keep exploring. Or maybe I just need to bite-the-bullet and pick something and stick to it. At this point I don’t know what direction to go. Has anyone gone through something like this? What did you do? Did you ever settle? Or are you a craft-hoarder too? Any book recommendations to work through it? Thoughts?
