Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
This morning, I started my day off horribly. I will be the first to admit that I do not have it together by any stretch of the imagination. I am either wicked early or insanely late, there is no in between. I work hard, just never organized. I am willing to admit that this is also how I am about my crafting. I am extremely unorganized in how my crafting area is arranged. When I sat down to write today’s post, I couldn’t help but think about how different and alike Krafters are.
There are several different Krafters. Each one is absolutely amazing, and they all have their own way of doing things. I would like to take a moment and recognize each one.
The Chaotic Krafter!
This particular Krafter always has a mess of a crafting area. They don’t have anything in a particular order that just anyone can pick up on and learn quickly. Usually they just put things where they’ll fit. They have no easily distinguished organization to how they craft. They work on things in the order they see fit and they love it. I am partially in this category, I tend to modify how other Krafters created something to fit my way of doing things. These people are amazing in this category because they tend to be able to modify or whip up something unusual that is really quite spectacular. They don’t really go into a craft with a concrete plan, which means, if they wanted a particular piece and discover they don’t have it, they are more apt to just change that piece out for something else. These Chaotic Krafters tend to be quite mellow and easy going.
The Eccentric Krafters!
This particular Krafter always puts a smile on your face. These amazing souls are excited just to craft for a few minutes. They feed on crafting the way kids feed on candy. High energy and a lot of squealing. I love watching these Krafters work, because they are always nearly singing as they explain what they are doing. Being a music lover, I enjoy the singing. In times of stress, these Krafters tend to be the motivators in group crafting activities. They are the ones that sit by the window watching for the UPS guy to bring their crafting supplies and probably scares the fire out them when they start squealing with joy at the packages. The Eccentric Krafter is a fun and exciting breed of Krafter.
The Loving Krafters!
This Krafter is so sweet and unbelievably sentimental in their crafting. These amazing people are the ones that give you gifts that are meant to bring tears of joy. Whenever you receive a gift from them, you always make sure you have a tissue ready. They take the time to truly get to know you before they craft something for you. They use all of your favorite colors and favorite things. They always make a point to bring the best out of everything and they get the greatest joy out crafting straight from the heart. The Loving Krafter is apart of all of us and we are so grateful for them.
The Angry Krafter!
This Krafter is a bit scary but fabulous nonetheless. They always have an aggression towards their craft. Not that they hate doing it, they get a thrill out of getting angry. These are the people that make cashiers and babies cry. However, their need for perfection beyond all laws of physics and reason, is what angers them the most. They are amazing Krafters and they make beautiful things, they just do so with an angered gusto not matched by anyone else. These are the Krafters you call on to bring you back to reality. These are the Krafters you call on when you want perfection. They deliver perfection. The Angry Krafter is a rare and amazing bird that we should all take time to truly enjoy.
The Passive Krafter!
This Krafter is a bit of an interesting people. They tend not to be in a hurry. They always make unique things and they really don’t care if you like their craft or not. These amazing Krafters are always ready to try new things and tend to be okay when you tell them no on something. They are the ones you see in the craft store that just walk the aisles all happy, with no care in the world. If the store is out of a color they need, they just get a different color. They are so much concerned with perfection, which makes their crafts so much more unique. The Passive Krafter is a breed that I would love to learn from.
The Tidy Krafter!
Oh Boy!! These amazing folks have me in a tizzy. First, they are the kind of Krafter I wish I could be. They are the ones that could put together something that you know would cause your crafting area to be wrecked, but when finished, their area looks spotless. They are the ones with the super fancy and amazing craft rooms that make me drool. Everything in their craft room is labeled and organized perfectly. They are able to walk in their room, blind folded, and grab exactly what they need. If I did that, I would probably trip over a box or hurt myself. These amazing people have crafting down to a science and they live for that. They are the ones that measure everything out perfectly and are all about perfection and precision. The Tidy Krafter is what we all secretly wish we were like.
While we all are Krafters, we all have different ways of crafting. That is what makes meeting other Krafters so amazing. We are able to learn from each other and teach each other. There is not only one form or way of crafting. We all have our talents and we all have our strengths. Why not share those with others. Part of what makes crafting so enjoyable is the learning. I think that a person should never stop learning. It would be a boring life to just stick with what you know. Trying something new is amazing. You never know if you like something, if you don’t try it. I didn’t know if I would like doing photo transfers, until I tried it. I never knew I liked fishing, until I tried it. I love trying new things. I am always looking for new and exciting things to try. I think life should be measured by how adventurous you are in your world. Don’t look at someone and be jealous of them, try doing what makes you happy and expand. Never settle for just one thing, add to your knowledge base. You never know when knowing how to sew with will help you. You never know how much it would mean to someone for you to make that photo block for them. Try new things, be adventurous, and most importantly, enjoy life!
