When designing a kit others will make, it’s easy to get lost in the details. You build the kit yourself over and over, tweaking prototypes and correcting and working and working and working…. until building it yourself doesn’t feel special anymore. It’s still fun, but not special.
Having the opportunity to share my craft kits at the #EtsyCraftParty was the breath of air I needed to stop, take a break, and have fun with my creation. The event was held at General Assembly and invited crafters to take the afternoon off to try something new.
Seeing people enjoy the craft was so rewarding. Hearing the verbs: “This is fun – therapeutic – calming.” It was more than I had hoped for.
