It's been such a busy summer ~ geez I can't believe my last post was back in July! YIKES!
So we've all been accused of stereotyping at one time or another. Here's a "for instance"... People always think that women are the "crafter's" extraordinaire. Having been exposed to fellow crafter's for years, as well as having a father who was quite a handy woodworker, and a brother-in-law that was also a wonderful woodworker, and did beautiful macrame pieces, I never agreed with that particular stereotype.
That said, I'd like to introduce you to a new friend of mine that will help change those skeptical thoughts that men can't craft. His name is Adam, and he's a co-worker of who recently relocated from Colorado. He not only crochets beanies like a madman, he can bake like a fiend (he even has his own Kitchen Aid!), he does woodwork and loves to garden!
Doesn't that pie look yummy? IT WAS!
Hey, male celebrities that are known to do crafts are...Ryan Gosling (of The Notebook fame), David Arquette and Rusell Crowe all knit, Tom Selleck and George Clooney both do woodworking, Johnny Depp paints portraits--so does Jim Carrey! Pretty cool huh?
I've said it before, crafting is a great outlet. It's been proven to lower blood pressure, etc. I know that it sure puts ME in a better place when I'm crafting! And the people that you meet with similar interests is amazing. WIN WIN...so what are you waiting for??? Get crafting! :)
