I recently came across Scrapbook.com, a website dedicated to the benefits and joys of making and crafting. According to Sarah Richards, a member of their content team, “We help empower people to create with their hands by providing inspiration, research-based articles, video tutorials, crafting supplies, classes, and more!” In addition, she says that “Over the past year, we’ve worked extremely hard to build an article that is accurate, easy to read, and has beautiful photos about a topic we feel very passionate about: how crafting is good for your health.”
This is definitely a subject I can get behind, given my long interest in the links between health and creativity. Just as I found while researching my book Craft to Heal, the Scrapbook.com team has discovered that crafting can reduce stress, boost happiness, and much more. If that’s not motivation to make time for your art, then I don’t know what is!
