I apologize for the time between posts. I’m afraid it might happen again soon. My eldest daughter is graduating from HS and it’s getting hectic! But for now, here is an interesting blog to check out: DudeCraft!
DudeCraft is an experiment in permission. The permission to learn and participate in crafts of all kinds. Building things from wood and steel is cool, to be sure, but so is knowing how to sew your own clothes, knit a scarf, and make something beautiful from an A4 sheet of paper. DudeCraft seeks to make it acceptable for men to participate in all crafts, not just the “manly” ones. I have a feeling there are a lot of you out there who would like to try a bit of everything and just can’t get over the “what will people think?” hump. Well, mostly they’ll think of what a cool and talented individual you are when they’re wearing that scarf you gave them, donning that silk screened t-shirt, or looking at that origami turtle you made. Skills are good to have. Facility is cool. Confidence is sexy.
