Very soon we will be wishing one another Happy New Year.
Please share what about crafting/making art makes you happy?
A few things that quickly come to my mind-
-spending time regularly with my stamps,inks and a variety of media
-working on a common task with others online
-making unique pieces of art
-enjoying opportunities to challenge me to learn new things.
-creating a gift that I am excited about giving

completing a project, whether I like it or not
learning new things
Definitely being able to talk with people doing the same type of project or challenge to learn from them and see what other perspectives they have on it.

Learning new things.
Finding creative solutions to problems...(ie. Getting an idea of what I want to produce and then working through how to get there).
Talking to others about their artistic visions and techniques they have found to realize them.
Producing a piece that strikes a cord with someone else.
Sharing things I have learned or figured out, that may be of use to someone else in their work.

I love the quiet when I am crafting. I find it peaceful. It's just my thoughts and what I am creating. I find crafting meditative.
The excitement of watching my project come together.
Learning new techniques and new things.
Playing with all my beautiful paper and art tools.
Using one of my frugal tricks on my project and it turns out elegant.
Spending time with my animals when I create something. I know that one is a bit odd. I have so many projects that I still have even though my furbabies are gone. I have those memories of them "helping" me.
