  19. I love lots of crafts, maybe because I trained as an art´s and crafts teacher. But my very favorite is probably sewing costumes for theatre. It´s the one place where limitless imagination is really favored! Where one can exaggerate in shape, color, materials, mood and character. It´s just pure fun! :-)

  37. My favourite craft is making birthday cards! I can get really extravagant. I pull out the card stock, special paper, magazine cutouts, stickers, markers, and glitter-glue for birthday cards. They're always covered in extravagant craziness and contain messages written in coloured pen. I'm sure most of the recipients think they're too over-the-top, but I hope they enjoy receive them, too! ♥
