National Craft Month

Today begins National Craft Month. According to the Craft and Hobby Association, each year over 56% of U.S. households are crafting! Are you one? Are you a crafter?

What is "crafting" anyway? The dictionary defines it as "an art, trade, or occupation requiring special skill, especially manual skill." (Emphasis added) For me it's more than using material things like paper, glue, scissors, or fabric. I think the percentage ought to be much higher when you think of all the things that's considered "an art" requiring a special skill.

I'm working on a list. In my opinion, it's "an art" of special skills when you:

Create the best person you can be.
Create a loving home environment.
Create an open heart of forgiveness.

All of the above requires a special skill set, and is an art to accomplish! Now, the 56% should be much much higher, correct? What would you add to this list? And, I ask again, are you a crafter?
