Styles Of Craftingsource: Margarida Sardo

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about my style of crafting. I’ve recounted every project I’ve done over the last couple of years, and I’ve come to a realization….I’m a utility crafter.

What is a utility crafter?

It’s a crafter who crafts useful projects only.  I don’t make decorative eyeglass cases,  pretty little toe rings or lovely lingerie bags. Those projects are charming, but their not for me.

What I do make are fitted sheets,  skirts,  replacement board game boxes,  greeting cards,  gifts of food,  and mini-notebooks.  All things that are cheaper to make myself or can’t be easily located.

The only exception is scrapbooking. Scrapbooks don’t save me money and they aren’t really useful.

I’d love to expand my crafting horizons and make a couple of things just for the creative fun of it.  Unfortunately,  I  never have time. Instead I’m busy crafting gift tags, making free, printable board games and sewing storage bags. Oh, well.

What is your crafting style? Please send me a comment and I’ll be happy to publish it.

    Hmmm, I think I’m mostly like you (see my most recent post–a cover for my ironing board.) But I am so attracted to all the “useless” but beautiful stuff I see in the blogosphere. I find myself always asking “but what would I do with it.”
