Whether you are in the winter of your life or whether the time of year is winter where you live, working on crafts can really liven up the days! Crafts don't have to be messy or expensive, but they have to be something you are interested in. What's fun about working on crafts is that you can throw away your mistakes. In time, most people who habitually work on crafts have to give them away or sell them; otherwise, they won't have the space to store them.
Personally, I don't recommend storing completed craft projects. Due to evolving trends in home décor, I have found that craft items can quickly become out-dated too. Instead, give them away and try to find good homes for your crafts. You know how some people try to find good homes for their pets? Do not some people diligently try to make sure that the caretakers and the pets are well-suited for each other prior to handing over their pets? Well, the same is holds true for crafts. Don't give your crafts away to people who will be unappreciative or who will store them for you. When giving your crafts away, be mindful of the home decor and settings of which your crafts will be placed. Give them to those who would like them for sentimental reasons if for nothing else. You should even consider donating them to care facilities for terminally ill children or senior citizens.
Don't ever forget, if you give your artwork to someone―it's theirs to choose what to do with it―in spite of what you have into it. Let it go! Move on to your next piece and have fun crafting!
