As a kid, some of the favorite things I did:
Batik
Glass "bits" collage
Seed Bead bracelets

As an adult my favorite crafts:
Stained Glass (oh, see, the glass...thing)
Christmas Ornaments
Food Gifts (like GIAJ)

Really like your crafts!! Happy Crafting!

Actually, other than fingerpainting/coloring, I don't think I crafted much as a kid. It's true what they say - it's never too late to have a good childhood (even if I start at 45...)

As a kid I liked to make my little sister clothing out of anything I could find. I also made lots & lots of bracelets. I have recently just gotten back into crafting, in a big way. I enjoy making books, altering books, ATC's, inchies, embroidery, stamping & so much more!

Ellen, aka Singtatter

As a child, I remembered doing some of my school craft projects and school charity projects with my grandma, things like simple cross-stitch and crochet, sewing hand-puppets, crepe paper roses.

When I first started working can to pay for lessons, I have dabbled in a lot more like parchment paper laces, hardanger, stumpwork, pressed flowers, folk art painting, pottery and a lot more, often than not, only creating a one piece work. Until I came across tatting, and now I mainly tat and lately, creating ATCs with my tatted laces and motifs.

LOVE that book! I told my kids I picked it up for them to use with their small looms - but I think I want to make the eyeglass case for myself.
I'm doing the same things I did as a kid - knitting, sewing (doll clothes still!) - paper crafting. Now I just do it with LOTS of supplies, when I was little it was all salvaged materials.

my taught me to crochet and knit when i was five. i drew, and i was very fascinated with lettering. mrs. jacobs, who was very old, brought her quilting when she babysat us. one time she brought some to share. i was about 5 or 6. now, i make atc's, cards and other paper arts. i also have enjoyed altering bottles and boxes, and i enjoy collecting stuff for assemblage. i have always been a collector of stuffs. i have a blue jay feather and a troll's robin hood hat with a disentigrating red feather from a very long time ago. i used one of those pot holder looms that were so popular in "ancient" times, and i did some weaving and tapestry in high school, but never really went very far with it. also, macrame...let's not mention that, though!

I had a Barbie Knitter when I was young and I liked it so much I recently bought me a new one that's a little bit bigger!!

I also used to paint simple acrylic pics and now I'm back to painting again but have graduated to simple watercolor. The key word is "simple" since I'm on a HUGE learning curve!!

I have always liked Native American art. As a kid I made headbands and small brooches on a bead loom. I tried it again recently but prefer stamping and mixed media now.

I have always been a paper "fiend" - I've collected it, hoarded it, and loved it all my life! The advent of scrapbooking just made it worse - all that lovely paper to buy and keep and look at ... at least now some of it winds up in my art journal and in my art!

Debbie

The crafts I did as kid are crochet and cross stitch. I still do those now, but I'm really into knitting. I also do beadwork and quilting. Debbie
