THIS WEEK: BUILD SOMETHING

Our hands are pretty incredible things. Yes, we know this is something you might not think about, but let’s take a moment now. Each of your hands has 27 bones in it. That means you most likely have 54 hand bones. That is pretty remarkable. […]

THIS WEEK: CREATE A RECIPE

There is a newish question that people like to ask these days. And, the funny part is that we don’t think we have ever heard someone answer with a “No.” The question is this… “Are you a Foodie?” In other words, are you someone who […]

THIS WEEK: BE RESOURCEFUL

Looking to build a tree house? Needing to change the oil in your car? Wondering where the nearest arts and crafts depot is? Or, just wanting to work on your bird calling skills? Well, it is all at your fingertips… and that is pretty dang […]

THIS WEEK: MAKE A GIFT

Last year, over $140 billion was spent on buying gift cards. Pretty impressive. However, over $1 billion worth of those cards are yet to be used. In other words, there is over $1 Billion in money out there that was spent on nothing. Yes, we […]

THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS CRAFTY

Whether you know this or not, you are an artist. Your entire life you have been creating. You have created talents, hobbies, relationships, achievements, careers, and maybe even some art. Whether it was actually building something with your hands, solving a problem with your mind, or opening up your heart, you are creative. The funny part is, however, if someone asked you if you were creative, your first reaction might be “No.” “No way could I change the brakes on my car.” “No way could I learn how to play piano.” “No way could I cook paella.” Well, this month, we are here to prove you wrong. We know how CRAFTY you are. So, in the spirit of being CRAFTY, we are going to CRAFTINGLY make every Monday this month just about that. So, get your creative, DIY, Maker juices following, because you are going to need them this month. Doing CRAFTY things allows us to express ourselves and to appreciate. It allows us to take risk and to work on our perfectionistic tendencies. And, it allows us to exercise a part of our brain that often doesn’t get enough attention. We can create gifts for someone special, explore new foods, learn new skills, and completely lose ourselves in the creative process. Which, ultimately means, we get to bring joy to someone else, develop our brains, and experience some personal growth. Let’s have fun. Being CRAFTY matters.
