Do you ever get the feeling a Crafty change is in the air?
Creativity runs through my veins, but so does the feeling one must keep moving forward.
I often wonder if people have the time to read anymore internet stuff relating to my humble crafty offerings as there are a zillion Craft Blogs out there all proudly displaying their wares . There also seems to be so much written about the craft movement at the moment, both online and in the print media........
I hope people haven't reached CRAFT OVERLOAD!
Can they still bear to fork out money for another cute knitted tea cosy or handmade brooch?
I'm just pondering the possibility, but I guess a good yard stick will be how well the Craft stall at my sons school fete goes. Me and a group of Mums have been meeting regularly whipping up crafty goodies from pre-loved and donated materials and are hoping the crowds respond well and we reap in the bucks. We will be selling knitted tea cosies and handmade brooches I might add!
Still, I know the day will soon be here when mass produced goods with a hand crafted feel will flood the shopping malls and that all craft, good and bad, could easily fall out of favour with the general public.
Lets hope this day is a long way off or else never comes at all. Long live Craft! And long live the blogs that promote it!
