Crafting love with your hands and with the help of crafting books is something more and more women turn to for emotional healing. And they do it for internal peace and calm, too. As the future unfolds before us, it seems people are getting busier, more distracted, and less connected to the physical and spiritual world. This can be especially problematic for our relationships, as love is something that just does not magically exist on its own.
Love must be cultured, tended, and cared for as if it were a special garden unlike any other.
Crafting Love to Share Our Hearts Through the Work of Our Hands
When I am stressed or even tired during my long days of work, I turn to crafting with my own hands. I need that connection with my inner creative self that sparks new creativity and new imagination for me to use.
My own crafts are usually quick and not complicated, just like this one. I like to use the paper and fabrics and scraps of interesting media that will become something new after the they’ll be touched by the magic of my fingers. Crafting books give me new ideas if not to follow to a “T,” rather to stir up my own imagination for crafts and DIY projects. When I am “in it” crafting, I experience joy and content and celebration of living.
