Craftster means FUN! OMG you people are a RIOT! I've never had such a blast as I do looking at and reading about all these crafty adventures. You've unlocked (even more of) the weird in me! It's gushing out in the form of MONSTERS of all shapes and sizes, LOL!

Even more than that though, Craftster means LEARNING. New things and learning about myself too. Craftster's taught me that it's ok to make all the things I dream up, I can give them away or even sell them, yay! I've learned that it's perfectly reasonable to have a big chunk of my living space full of supplies and tools of the trade (lots of people do that, it's not just me!), it's not unreasonable to rescue and take home any and everything I might find useful "one of these days". And that the downed tree in the yard is a Perfect spot for a photo shoot!  Cheesy

Here's where I got the idea that there's absolutely nothing wrong with taking 30 stuffies outside on the lawn for a little camera lovin' despite how loonie it looks to the neighbours Cheesy. That I'm a better photographer than I thought I was and also, and possibly most importantly, that if I get eaten alive during said photo shoot, well, there's bound to be a recipe for homemade bug bite lotion on here somewhere Cheesy.
And I've learned that while I may not necessarily be able to make my entire living selling my work, I CAN offer my art for sale. It's good enough, it's cute enough, and gosh darn it, people Like it!
Oh, and I also learned here how to felt up the old wool sweaters I use for these guys as well as how to make the homemade natural laundry soap that I wash them with Wink.



























There's a prevailing spirit of enjoyment and positivity on this site that you can't help but be uplifted by Smiley. And I know I'm not alone in feeling confident and safe sharing my crafty adventures and, oops, mishaps here  Undecided. Because this is a community full of the kindest, most supportive, encouraging people anywhere. And it's helped me grow into a more supportive, kinder and encouraging person myself. The folks here are unfailingly giving of themselves, their time, their patterns, tutorials, advice, and even the beautiful things they've made. Craftster is all about spreading the love <3. Thank you for everything.

omg. Monster explosion!! I especially love the tubular guy, with no appendages whatsoever. He's by far my favorite out of all those fabulous monsters.

Bella I love him too! His mouth is a pocket from the front of a sweater, I just giggle ever time I see him.

It is a monster explosion, isn't it? I wasn't even sure I could get that many pictures to load in just one post! It's OK to do that I hope...Huh Oh boy...

I didn't post the pocket on the back of this one (I love the ones with pockets best of all!).


Thanks Meleriffic!

SmcNesby, which one? The second pic has three kitty like creatures, is it one of those? I'm always interested in finding out which ones are people's faves Smiley.

Bella, the other pocket of that sweater felted up all crooked so I couldn't use it, I was so sad about that. The one that worked looks like crazy lips!

Thanks Dulcet! I binge craft, periods of nothing interspersed with floor lost under fabric mountain Cheesy. At least my OCD is fun and productive, right? LOL!
