I'm not sure if me doing this will be any good as I have OCD so that will make some of my answers strange but here goes ....
How do you feel when you're crafting?
Sometimes I feel blissfully happy as I love making things (sometimes I just sit back and enjoy the moment).Unfortunately the OCD creeps in though and I can actually feel quite anxious and also a little upset because I worry I'm going to contaminate whatever I'm making.
Why do you craft?
I craft because Its just who I am (sorry that sounds uppity, cant think of how else to explain it).Since I was little Ive made things.(My mum regularly found me in a pile of paper and bits. At first she would be cross about the mess but then she would be made up when I showed her my latest creation) I also got told off for using her scissors and not putting them back!
I couldn't imagine not making things. I often wonder what people who don't craft do with their spare time.
Who do you craft for?
I craft for me mostly. I would like to craft for others but thats where my fear of contamination comes into play again. Friends have said they like what I do and should sell stuff but I'm too afraid I may put germs on things (not that I have germs its a whole weird brain thing )
How many hours a week do you average crafting?
As many as I can. Again though this depends on the OCD. When I'm having a really bad phase I cant do any,Ive gone nearly 7 months before now without being able to touch a thing. Lately its been a bit better and Ive been going up to my little studio the last few nights and doing anywhere from 2-4 hours knitting whilst watching my Buffy dvds (my idea of heaven).
I actually feel quite nervous about posting this.
