There's no craft too big or too small to try your hand at, even if it seems impossible. Over the last several years we've mastered the skills needed to needle felt, latchook, silkscreen, spin wool and more. Taking a few upholstery classes and potentially a welding class are still on our to-do list, so we're curious: what style of arts and crafts would you like to learn?

Although we love purchasing handmade goods from artisans all around the world, there is still the small satisfaction that comes from making things yourself. Sure, they might not be as awesome as something you'd buy, but a woven rug or basket will still look great in your space no matter what the level of experience was used to create it.

It's easy to fall out of crafting, especially when picking up a new hobby requires a small arsenal of supplies. Look for sales and coupons to get a hand up. Buying things every few weeks with a "50% off any non-sale item" coupon can really save you some bucks!
