For a while I’ve been pursuing finding a craft that I can actually handle on a regular basis. Crocheting went horribly wrong. Making stuffed mouse cat toys was a huge failure. I couldn't even get into coloring.
Lately, I’ve been working on more paper collages, which I guess could be called paper crafts. I’ve been making them from magazines, using scissors and a glue stick, and it’s something I can actually handle.
I don’t know if it’s the cutting action, but I actually feel better doing them. It’s like a mild level of distraction and I don’t need a lot of focus. Most of them are migraine focused, so I can take out some of my frustration on them.
I've also discovered that people actually put their collages in things called art journals.
