I was sorting out my craft-come-junk room the other day and found a box of things I had made many years ago. It was very strange looking back on things I once enjoyed making. In my time I have made salt dough and fimo models, painted on stones, tried silk painting, glass painting, encaustic art, rug making, paper making, paper pricking, embossing, parchment craft, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting and crochet to name but a few! I no longer hold a passion for any of the above crafts apart from cross-stitch and embroidery.
My passions now lie mainly with creating things from paper and other textiles and dabbling with water colour painting from time to time. I have a whole heap of scrapbooking projects to do but can never bring myself to start!
Who decides when certain crafts become unfashionable/fashionable? I wonder if in a few years time I will look back and think I once enjoyed papercrafting and embroidery but no longer do. Will they continue to bring me creative fulfillment? I hope so.
