Mindful Crochet for #craftastherapy

Hi folks :)

Why do you craft?  Does it calm you? Does it take your mind of things that aren’t going well? Is it just for fun?  No matter the reason, engaging in craft is a good thing.  Mandy from RedAgape Style and Design blog, a self professed Instagram addict like myself, posted a few pictures of her crafty persuits and tagged them with #craftastherapy.  Well, that hashtag has taken off!

Here’s what Mandy has to say about it all

What is Craft as Therapy?  I have always loved craft and often bounced from one hobby to another, but it wasn’t until I was experiencing a particularly stressful period of my life, that i began to craft as a form of therapy. A self diagnosed ‘instagram addict‘ i began to tag some of my projects with #craftastherapy. I was stunned by the response i received and shortly afterwards many fellow crafters started using the tag. It became apparent to me how important craft is as a form of therapy, not just for me, but for many others. The hashtag continues to grow, as does the number of followers for @craftastherapyand a beautiful community has blossomed. Does craft make you happy? Relieve stress? Distract you from illness? To read more on how to join our supportive community visit my blog post about craft as therapy.
