I've already shared about how I love how versatile and forgiving paper crafting is on one of the other blogs in this hop, so I will share another reason I love crafting here. I love how relaxing it is (aside from some frustrations when things don't go your way). Even though I craft in our family room to be with my husband while drafting, I still love the me time that it is. A chance to do something I love and wash away the stresses of life.
