  1. Rhodora araneta says

    I make something new whenever an occasion comes up, such as a new baby coming. But more often than not, I get the urge to make something new every couple of months…just because!

  2. Julie Barnett says

    I love to make crocheted and sewn items to donate and sale. I’m working on getting my business plan together and need all the help I can get.
    <3, 🙂

  3. Yvonne Lemons says

    I like to make new things whenever I can. I enjoy trying new ideas and projects. Believe it or not I have already started my projects for Christmas. WooHoo

  4. says

    I make something new almost every day! Whether I paint or design something new, finish construction on a new piece of jewelry, engrave a new design, I do this every day. Several projects in the works, all to be completed soon!

  5. domestic diva says

    I don’t have FB, but we work on making something most days — it’s always a new project, even if we’ve made something similar before.

  6. says

    I have challenged myself to draw something everyday in the new year. Although I missed a few days I keep trying and my sketches show improvement. Always a recycled art project on my worktable (ok ok I have a bunch of them in progress) and I am busy creating at least 5 days a week!!

  7. Kathy E. says

    I make something new almost every day! I am just unleashing my creative spirit since I quit a highly stressful job. I love to sew, paint, draw, crochet, knit and cook! There may even be a few more skills buried within me that I haven’t discovered yet.

  8. Sheila Phipps says

    I am a school teacher and I make things almost daily to use in my class. But, for home it is typically around the holidays.

  9. Nancy Lindenback says

    I always have something on the go and if it’s something big then I take a break from it and make a few small things (like stuffed animals or a quick scarf or hat). I just started to learn how to crochet in June 2012 and have learned so many new things that I’m totally hooked on crochet. I even sold things at my local farmers market at christmas.

  10. Marilyn Onofriechuk says

    I am always crocheting or netting or sewing by machine or hand sewing. I want to sell some of my stuff but I don”t want to spend a lot of money. So some ideas would be great for selling my crafts.
    Thank you.

  11. says

    I make something every single day…it’s what I do instead of watching tv! I have a arts and crafts obsession…crochet, knit, paint, play with clay, art journal, jewelry…basically everything that catches my eye…I always have a million projects going on at once!

  12. CindySherwood says

    I am always working on at least one project at any given time, so I am creating daily. I knit, crochet, make jewelry, cook and bake. Since I never follow any pattern or recipe exactly, I’m always making things my own way.

  13. Sharon Klundt says

    I make crafts etc. constantly! Just recently got back into crocheting, am working on a baby cowgirl set at present. Just finished with my own design for Ladybug potholders.This book would be absolutely awesome to own. Thank you so much for the chance to enter.

  14. Monique Garneau says

    I have several projects going at once! A teddy bear, scarf, doll clothes, slippers, and more as needed or asked for. Always making something new and I love it!

  15. says

    Crafting, be it knitting,crocheting,embroidery, I am always making something daily. It has always been a dream for me, since I was a child to have my own craft shop. Working on some Easter Bunny slippers today, and just received my pattern for banners. Cant wait to try that out. Have a great Day!!!!

  16. Crystal says

    I made several things to sell for valentines day; heart-shaped potpourri satchets, heart chained scarves, and heart chained bookmarks.

    I make new things each time I look at my favorite crocheters on Youtube! I love it!

  17. Jen Soltysiak says

    Lol, I like to make something new as soon as I’m finished making the last something new! I go from one project directly to the next. I don’t usually like making the same thing more than once so very often I’m making something I’ve never done before.

  18. Andrea says

    I am always working on at least one project in the scattered spare minutes of the day. It is a never-ending process.

  19. says

    I make something every day.. sometimes I craft a lot other times just the next step until tomorrow..I have some kind of craft time everyday.,. 😀

  20. Sue McEndree says

    I try to make something new at least once a month, but I don’t sell very many. I mostly make them for gifts.

  21. MaryAnn says

    i try making something new once a week. I try to find crafts that i can introduce my girl scout to- I love when i find something that really sparks their interest in crafting

  22. Norita Seidel says

    I make something new at least 4 maybe 5 times a week. I especially make new purses all the time and sell when I can. I like doing craft shows and stuff but don’t want to have to get a business lisence to do it.

  23. says

    I try to make something new each week, but I get so busy with life that it doesn’t happen. I want to start my own crochet business, and I need help with the process. Thanks for the giveaway

  24. says

    I make something new every time I’m asked to for the business, which can vary a lot! But usually every few weeks or once a month. As for personally, I make new things almost everyday! I love to craft, especially upcycled crafts!! 😀

  25. Marion Timmermann says

    I try to make new things as often as my fibromyalgia allows & how often I have free time from taking care of my legally blind hubby. But these delays do not keep my mind from creating things in my head before the chance to make them by hand. It’s like think twice, create perfection!

  26. Karen says

    I am always making something. I almost always have 2 or 3 projects in the art room waiting to be finished when I think of something I want to try and start another one 🙂

  27. Elizabeth De Franco says

    I would like to make something everyday, but I have to grab a few minutes here & there to work on my projects. Hopefully, that will be changing very soon!!

  28. Michele says

    I make something new at least once a week. More often if time allows, but would LOVE to know where to begin on a CRAFTING business so I can do that full time! Would LOVE to win the book!!!

  29. Ellen Barth says

    I get so many ideas for new things but don’t make them as often as I would like to. Only make new things every month or so.

  30. Marjean Spencer says

    Constantly starting something new…right now I’m working on a Christmas ornament swap, a baby afghan for a great grandson coming in 3 weeks and a grandson coming in a month. Love finding UFO’s in my room that I can get finished as well…spend more time in my craft room than anywhere else in the house!

  31. Anne Nolan says

    I try to make something new at least once a week. Sometimes it just depends on how much time I need to put into the project.

  32. Karla Funnell says

    I try to make new things as often as I can, usually only maybe once a week or so. I like trying any kind of medium and will try most things. I don’t limit myself to just certain crafts, I like doing them all!

  33. Florence Eller says

    I just finished 30 knitted purses that stay on the knittiong needles they were knitted on. Now to crochet the thirty mickey head coasters.

  34. says

    for me, it depends, since I work with so many different mediums, and couple that with my disability. Some items take me a day or two to complete, other take a month or so. I refuse to rush anything just to get is finished……it has to feel “right”, and it will tell me when it is complete.

  35. Brenda Storer Maden says

    I start a new project almost as soon as I finish one. If I don’t have a new idea, I work on one that I have that is kinda on-going.

  36. Helen Tietz says

    I pretty much make something new every day. I sell alot of the things I make so therefore I have to keep things fresh and find new ideas.

  37. Victoria Perkins says

    I try to make new things as often as I can, my schedule doesn’t always allow it but every spring break and summer break I make stuff. 🙂

    Thank you for the chance to win this prize =)

    I love to craft almost anything. I made jewelry, scrapbook, card making, quilling, sewing, knitting, stitching, etc.

    I am retired and spend a couple of hours daily working on my crafts/projects. I would like to be able to make some spending cash from the projects that I make but don’t really know where to start.

  42. Shannon Gross says

    I’d make something new everyday if I could! At least one project for me a week and one or two with my daughters!

  43. Kelly Keane says

    I craft and repurpose as often as I can get into my craft space! Even if it is just making a card or repainting a table or making cushions, I love making things with what I have available

  44. Belinda Turner says

    I usually have something and and often several things in the makin’ all the time. When I sit to watch movies I knit. In some free times in the day I sew, felt,paint and make collages on canvas.

  45. Kim Lin says

    I always have some craft project going.. crocheting, shell crafting, survival bracelets, etc I also consider cooking a craft, so my answer would be daily.

  46. says

    I’m always working on something. This weeks it’s a crocheted throw and then some pony bag hangies. Who knows what I’ll be making next. Maybe it will be something for me 😀

  47. Tina Carlson says

    I used to make something new at least once a week. Right now I’m lucky to make something new once a month because my 9 month old keeps me busy.

  48. Lori M says

    I try to make a few pieces of jewelry a couple times a week. Having a hard time selling, would love some pointers aside. I love everything I create and most of the time give it away.

  49. Ruth Aubertine says

    I have been making things for years now, getting close to retirement and would love to learn how I could supplement my income. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book!!

    I make something new every day that I can. I have been ill for about 2 years now but on my good days I sew and machine embroidery. I have been doing a little quilting and also make wreaths

  51. Laura K says

    In general, I try to make a new pattern or variation about once a month, sometimes more depending on the needs of the little ones or myself. However, so far this year, I’ve made all new projects – one a week – based on requests from friends for presents and compliments to Christmas gifts.

  52. Evelyn South says

    I make something new every chance I get. I have people ask me all the time “what would you charge to make me one of those?” I would love to learn more about selling my crafts

  53. Shari G says

    I make several new things a month. I am always working on something, so it just depends on how big the project is. Sometimes I have more than one thing going at a time 🙂

  54. cindy says

    I make new things 2-3 times a week. I’m a stay at home Mom & I make wreaths & sell them for extra income for our family.

  55. says

    I try to make something new at least once a week. Sometimes my something new is an altered art piece that can take several weeks to complete, as I have to work around my job to get it done.

  56. Debi says

    I have crafted and sewn all of my life. Starting at about 5 making my dollies clothes. People keep asking me why I don’t sell my things!? I say, I don’t know what to do to start and how to price and so forth and so forth…. This would probably help me finally share my things! Thanks for the opportunity!

  57. Rebecca Meditz says

    I make things all of the time when I am not working and would love to be able to sell them. But don’t want to lose the joy of crafting.

  58. Stacy says

    I love to crochet to sell and to make things for to sell for the bible college at our church and to give away as gifts.

    I love making new and unusual crafts, I usually have at least three or four things going on and whatever strikes my fancy is what I’ll be doing. I have two baby blankets on needles as well as crafting jewelry.

  60. Smita Setia says

    I usually start on a new project every other week depending on occasions and requests, so this book would be helpful in maximising that

  61. Jann Chelluk says

    I try to make something new every week to 10 days except for this month.. my mother in law has been in the hospital since the 1st and my husband has had a nasty cold.

  62. Chacoy says

    I try to make something new everyday whether it’s a recipe, craft, jewelry, sewing or paper craft I love to create and it’s a great way to get ideas out and turned into something amazing or not so amazing sometimes!
    Thank you for the opportunity(:

  63. Katrina says

    I make something new whenever inspiration hits (which is usually like a lightning bolt that wakes me up in my sleep!) I usually have 1 project a week completed unless I’m feeling overly ambitious! 🙂

  64. Jenny says

    I TRY to make something new every week. Someday I want to sell my stuff on a regular basis, but for now they are usually given away as gifts.

  65. Theresa Farmer says

    I like to make many different things: embellished belt buckles, personalized tumblers, cards. I really enjoy finding new ideas on trying them out.

  66. Melissa Johnson says

    I scrapbook as often as I can, but it tends to be only on weekends when I go to someone’s house or to a crop – there’s no real room in our house to do it. I’m “scrapping for hire” but I know I’m underpricing myself. But I still tend to do it more for the joy of the process then for the money. Scrapbooking makes me happy like shopping makes me happy – it doesn’t have to by my own pictures I’m scrapping (my own money I’m spending) – I just like making pages (I like buying things for others…the “thrill of the hunt!”) Of course, if I spent more time on my own pictures, I’d have more to show for it instead of always giving away my best work! 😉

  67. Jennifer says

    As a busy stay at home mom of four, I don’t make things as often as I would like to. I love crafting and try to fit in something creative as often as I can.

  68. Robin Fiedler says

    As a homeschooling mom and a leader in a homeschooling Girl Scout Troop, I make something new at least weekly. Right now, I am working with my girls on a big project for the 2013 Christmas craft fair season. Busy hands!

  69. Catrinia says

    I make new stuff all the time and even more in winter to make up for hours from work where they are cut so I can still pay my bill. I usually make about 4-6 new hats a week and just starting to get into blankets for all the baby showers popping up in my area. I wish tho for getting them sold faster and more things sold for this coming winter!

  70. Eva says

    I would love to turn my projects into income.I have my Granddaughter 2x a week,so we make some thing in her age.I made 4 Valentine pic frame’s in 2 days and have been making jewlery tree’s[Framed jewlery tree w/lights] I have new projects daily.I love making new stuff every day,from baking,sewing to working with jewlery.I just love it!

  71. Robin Johnson says

    After working the same job for the last 23 years and being unable to do the heavy lifting required, I am now unemployed. I love to crochet and now have the time, I like smaller projects and am making at least one a day. I just need to figure out what to do with all my stuff!

  72. Cornelia says

    Depends on the project. I’ve got plans to make some Easter items that will take maybe an hour, a birthday gift to make that will take 2-3 hours and the WIP afghan will take up to a week with the time I’m allotting it.

  73. says

    I am contantly making new crafts every other day. I usually work on 2 to 3 projects at a time. This way I am never bored making just one thing. I enjoy making things from recycled items such as liquor bottles, blown lightblulbs, plastic containers. I make flowers out of coffee filters, crepe paper and duct tape. I really enjoy my crafting, it is therapy for me..

  74. RUTH says

    I work on something almost everyday. I’ve got stuff on Ebay, Etsy, Bonanza and Craigslist. Looking at a few shops in the area that takes things on consignment. If I didn’t sell my things, I’d soon look like one of those TV hoarders!!

  75. Dawn Sievers says

    I knit, crochet or bead everyday and try to complete several projects each week. I’m a lucky to have Area 51, the home of all of my UFOs so I don’t have to pack everything up and put it away before it is completed.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this book.

  76. C says

    I love making so many new things. The internet is a wonderful place to look. I have made so many things from Blogs and sites…it’s great..

  77. Sabina says

    I would love to make sth new every hour of every day, but when I start making cards or other crafts I get out of control and can’t stop. I’m a student so I have to study too, that’s why I try to control myself :))) But still I manage to make sth new at least once a week!

  78. Laurie Pedley says

    I’m always creating something, but need to earn additional money. It would be great if that need for money was satisfied by creating crafts instead of taking away from my crafting time.

  79. Tambra Vandal says

    It’s non stop with me….I’m sewing & crocheting just about every day! Everyone I know has been telling me that I need to sell my handmade stuff, so maybe this is a good place to start.

  80. Rosemary Johnstone says

    I have been in the planning stages for a long time. I have bins of knitted and crochet items. Recently started with paper product. Love trying new items. The next thing to try is transferring photos to canvas. Would love to read this book, if my daughter and I can sell our items she maybe able to be a stay at home Mom.

  81. Becky Harrison says

    I love making new things. I make something new about once a week. Making a braided rug on a loom out of sheets and jeans. Recycle!!!!

  82. Deborah Hale says

    I’m always working on something (and it’s always “new”, even if the craft itself is old – like crocheting doilies!), right now I have an afghan and a doily on my hooks and a washcloth on my knitting needles. It really all depends on what I’m in the mood to do (and whether I can keep the kitties properly positioned on the afghan – oddly enough, nobody wants to sit on Mommy’s lap unless there’s an afghan involved)!

  83. Carol says

    I design and create five days out of seven. I love doing it so that’s why I am always thinking about what I want to do next. If I’m not actually creating something, I am thinking about creating something. 🙂

  84. Nora N. says

    I make or work on something at least once a week, more often if I have time…I stay pretty busy with work, school and kids. 🙂 I always wanted to make a living doing the things I love!

  85. Kristen says

    When the fever strikes. If I see a pattern,layout, or beautiful idea I waste no time getting out my supplies or go buy more.

  86. Toni Harding-Wandpflug says

    Right now I am making purses made on a handmade loom. I use all types of yarn for different textures. Each one is lined. they are quite nice. I am trying to get enought done to take to a craft show but it takes about a week to finish one. I also make survival bracelets.Sometimes I have to walk away for a few daysto get my creativity back.

  87. Cheryle Perkins says

    I have recently learned how to quilt. I love sewing so quilting was a definite much know how to do. I try to learn a new square design a couple times a month

  88. says

    I make things everyday just about. Have been giving some thought to selling–at least that’s what my family and friends think I should do. Most of them do not realize what really goes into ‘making’ and item. Oh well. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  89. Carole Ann Cook says

    I start several things at once, but I (almost) always complete them.”I Just Like To Make Things” would be so perfect. I need it.

  90. Deborah Atella says

    Every day through my email I come across something that I can’t wait to get home and make. Sometimes I print the instructions, other times I watch the video. Of course, I can’t actually make it immediately all the time. However, at some point during that week (usually in a couple of days) I find myself back at the craft store gathering up the required supplies, rushing home and begin creating. My name is Deborah and I am a craft addict! Thank you for listening.

  91. Mary Gray Hoffman says

    I have several projects going on at once..painting coconuts for yard art,working on Kukui Nuts now for jewelry, next “Jacaranda Pods” (exploring possibilities!) I’d love to win this book! thanks for the opportunity!

  92. Michele says

    I knit something new every week, if I really like it I make more than one. If I don’t like it, my mind redesigns it and tries to make it better. I give them as gifts, but if the item is over difficult and I’m pleased, keep it 🙂 !

  93. Shikha says

    I love making new stuff.. and I will be so happy to win this book..best birthday gift for my little one, as the day of draw is her 1st birthday 🙂 hope i win.. i am already imagining what i will make for my little one with this lovely book in hand.. 🙂

  94. Nicole Vaught says

    I don’t make things often enough. Usually if I plan on giving it as a gift. I’m in the middle of setting up my craft studio, hoping to be much more productive then 🙂

  95. Kelli says

    Right now I don’t make anything new ever. I’ve always felt that I lacked the creative, handy skills to do so, but I would like to learn!

  96. Linda Offutt says

    I am working on new projects all the time ~ a hat a night, scarves, small blankets ~ all for charity. Maybe I can turn this into a profit to make more things 🙂

  97. Valerie says

    Where do I start? I love creating new floral designs and taking leftover flowers apart to make things like butterflies, etc. I just finished making a pocket in the hoop to add to some plain pink shots for my granddaughter. Making new things is super fun, and my hubby just raves about them.

  98. Lori Beltran says

    I make stuff several times a week…HOWEVER…I make a mess almost daily! Is it possible to be a organized crafter?? LOL

  99. nancy benaway says

    I work on my craft things EVERYDAY. I love it. I wish I could sell some of my stuff but I just don’t know where. I can do just about anything.

  100. Sandi P says

    I make new items for gifts, or sometimes just because I want to try out an idea. With full time work, it doesn’t happen as often as I would like, but I’ve always got two or three projects in the works. When I retire (soon, I hope) I plan to be able to see projects through to completion regularly.

  101. Linda Morales says

    I am always crocheting something. I make blankets, some blankets and more blankets.It warms my heart to receive photos of friends/family wrapped up snuggly in something I made for them.

  102. Lori M says

    I try to make something almost every day! The creative juices start to flow and I have to stitch something up. Too many ideas are trying to get out of this brain! ha

  103. says

    My family are always making something for someone. Sometimes it is a priceless treasure or something we were ask to make. My daughter is always making something and I would end up helping her. We made our signs for the girls scouts cookies for sale, she drew all the cookies..good post…:)

  104. Kalynda says

    I make jewelry, and 3-dimensional art using recycled pieces. I also crochet, and just plain make things. I just want to make beautiful things even if no one else cares. I work on something every day.

  105. Claire M. says

    I make something new whenever I have money and time at the same time (so, recently not that much, but usually once a week or so). 🙂

  106. Carol says

    I have been working on crafts since the age of 5 and I am now 70 years young and going strong in crafting. I always have projects going and enjoy meeting people, demonstrating my skills and designing new ideas. I would now like to polish my selling skills so that I could earn more money to help support myself.

  107. Carol says

    I would love to win a copy of “I Just Like to Make Things Book” to help me polish my selling skills of my hand-made articles.

  108. Renee Cruell says

    After a long hiatus, I now realize that I am happier/more creative, when I am making things things to please myself rather than out of obligations to others. Now I look forward to making things everyday.

  109. Florence says

    I am always looking for new ideas to inspire the boys and girls I work with and I’m sure this book would help me.

  110. ellen kudron says

    I truly Love to make things! I love to sew and craft, but my greatest pleasure is to give my family and friends my “Hand-made” treasures.

  111. Mary Fitzgerald says

    I’m always making something for someone, but, take a class for a new craft monthly. Last month was a chenille scarf, really fun!

  112. Janice says

    I create every day even if it’s only in my mind, thats where my greatest idea’s come from . Than I can put it all together making my jewelry and it works out perfect.

  113. Tina says

    How often I make something new depends on what I’m making and currently working on. Obviously, large items take longer than smaller items. lol

  114. Steff says

    I crochet pretty much every day, and cross stitch as often as I can. I’d love some ideas for growing a little crochet business 🙂

  115. Nancy says

    I make things multiple times during the week. Like now I set up a crafts trade show with my crafty friends in my clubhouse. So being it is in the beginning of March we are all working fast & furious to get as much made as possible.

  116. MaryAnn Fortunato says

    I haven’t found a craft that I don’t love and I try to create something new almost daily using whatever medium I have handy at the time. I’m always trying new techniques that I see online or in craft books. I treasure the arts I’ve learned from my mother and aunt and I’ve passed these arts on to my own children and nieces and nephews.

  117. April says

    I have always been a crafty person. I have been wanting to learn more about turning my crafting into a business. I have always been afraid of loosing that “desire to craft and sew”if i decided to start selling my things.. Would love to learn more on how to keep my love of crafting going while I am also selling these items as well..

  118. Kimmy Anne says

    I make stuff at least once a week, more if I have time between cooking and cleaning and taking care of my 3 year old and 3 month old girls!

  119. Carole Ann Cook says

    Although thankful to crochet with a roof over my head and heat, I would love to have money too. I do love to make things. I’d love to have this help.

  120. Karen Smith says

    I love the satisfaction I get when I complete a project. I come from a family that crafts, as I watched my Grandmother and Mother craft all my life. Right now my main craft is crocheting, but I also love sewing, jewelry making, doll making, knitting and floral projects. There are many crafts that facinate me that I haven’t tried yet, such as silk fabric painting and fabric collage. Looks like a great book!

  121. cheeny says

    i am starting to sew and do crafts again that i no longer work. i usually do one of the other once a week. i just found your site today but i can assure i will be back often when i’m not crafting or sewing.

  122. Sheryl Nafziger says

    I’m always on the lookout for something new and/or different to work on. I enjoy the challenge. Most of the things I make are given to charitable oranizations – I always hope they put a smile on someone’s face.

  123. Jacquelyn Baker says

    I love to make things, and sometimes make new items on a regular basis, (daily or weekly) depending on time, energy & motivation.

  124. Michele says

  125. Becky Gant Jenkins says

    I make something new in crochet at least once a month. I also sew and knit, so I am continuously working on something.

  126. Douglas says

    I like to thread and yarn crochet. A lot of things I give away but I also make items specifically to sell. And recently I’ve begun to work my own patterns. (After 12 years of crocheting you’d think I’d have done that sooner. :))

    Usually I have 2-3 projects going on at any given time. That gives me about 5-10 projects completed in a week’s time.

  127. Cyndie says

    My Grandma made every baby born in our family an afghan and I have tried to continue the tradition. It is hard, but I’ve almost got it. I keep on trying

  129. Monica says

    I try to crochet every day, but some of the patterns are a little over my skill level which make the project take longer. No prob… I LOVE crochet!!!

  130. Stacey says

    I have always had such pride in things I can make myself, and nothing brings more joy to others than the gifts we handmade just for them.

  131. Sue says

    I make something new as soon as I am done the last thing i have made.. some times I even have 3 things going at once.. I am on low income so that isn’t so easy.. but I make it work somehow. Because of illness i hadn’t crafted from 1997 to 2010 .. and I used to do so many different things. I would love to win the book to get all my creative juices flowing just that much more .. Thank you for the opportunity 🙂

  132. Deb Pruitt says

    Each day I am hunting for ideas for things to create! LOVE crafting, sewing, crocheting, etc! Also, love creating neat things with my 4 yo grandson! He recently got a new coin bank from our bank when we opened a savings acct for him. He LOVED getting out the buttons, yarn, glitter, etc. to decorate his bank!

  133. Nancy Lindenback says

    I work on something every day. Some days I make lots of little things (I once made 5 turtles in one day then finished the scarf and hat set I was working on. I love to make things too much sometimes and I want to make it all. I have lists of things I want to make, some for family and some to sell. I sell at local farmers markets but need to look into other avenues as I have more to sell than I have customers.

  134. Danielle Chester says

    I start something new probably two or three times a week. How often I finish a project, well…that depends on how complex the project is, how busy I get, and how many things I have started. Confession time: I have five projects that are more than three months old and one of them is over 18 months old and still unfinished…

  135. Norma Hyman says

    I live in an apartnent conplex and am always trying to make new things. when the others see what I’ve made, they want to learn how so I teach them!

  136. Dez Foster says

    I crochet every chance I get! Literally a crochet hook is practically attached to my hand. I love to learn new patterns. Within the last 2 months I’ve actually started selling my pieces at a salon and local boutique. They are a hit!

  137. Jeanice Coliron says

    I’m usually working on something every day. I crochet and make jewelry and try to do at least a little of both daily.

  138. Leigh Anne says

    When I come across a new pattern I like (which is quite frequently) I file it until I have someone to make it for. As soon as I finish one project, a new one starts, and that maybe 1 a week, depending on what I may be making.

  139. jill righter says

    I’m always making something. It’s not unusual for me to have a few things going on at the some time. It may b a few crochet projects, x-stitch, jewelry

  140. jill righter says

    I always have something going on. Some times more than one. I do crochet, x-stitch, jewelry, latch hook, maccramae, whatever i can get my hands on that sounds fun. I especially enjoy teaching the children at church.

  141. jill righter says

    I make something several times a week…ok, actually I START something every week; my list of unfinished projects is amazing! Really! Even I’m impressed with my ability to work on several things at once!

  145. lorraine says

    I am always working on making something, either knitting, crocheting, or sewing. Since I’m retired, I have the time and I like being creative and giving one of a kind gifts. This book would probably have many useful ideas I could use.

  146. Angela says

    I start setting new whenever I’ve finished the last item. Sometimes weekly, sometimes monthly. Depends on what I’m crocheting

  147. Jeannette Klein says

    Making things relaxes me after a days work. I always sit at the dining room table and have many things on the go. 90% is given away as presents. Thankfully I have a husband who loves seeing the end result of my handiwork.

  148. Ann Marie Mones says

    How often do I makes things? I would like to say every day. But I still have to work for a living, so I make things whenever I can find a few minutes of time … A couple of times a week an always on Saturday. I just love to sew and I sell my items at the local farmers market on Saturdays thru the summer. I will retire at the end of this year and I hope to do a lot more sewing and craft shows. I also do alterations and embroidery.

  153. Mary D'Errico says

    I like to start (and hopefully finish!) one new project a week, but I think about new projects all the time! If it’s something small, like a bead project, I’ll try to make a new one everyday.

  154. Sue says

    I am always making something. I have many scarves that I made and didn’t give away for presents. I have more afghans than I would ever need. I am still sewing All American Girl clothes and my granddaughters are too old. I am looking forward to retirement to make more. I need to sell my items to pay for the materials to make more.

  155. Beverly Brown says

    I love to make things for people and watch their expressions when I give them as gifts. My favorite thing to do is to crochet afghans, and scarves.

  156. Lauren says

    I make something new whenever I have time between work and school! I have a crochet Facebook page called L.A. Crochet and an etsy shop! Please visit my page! I agree with the name of the book “I just like to make things!” I don’t really care if I end up selling something, I really just like to make things! =)

  161. Donna Hawkins says

    I am not a horder – not in the physical sense, but in my mind I would own all the yarn, fabric, vintage buttons and patterns in the world and would spend all day, every day making stuff! In the real world, I always have a project going and am an accomplished crocheter, knitter and seamstrtess – 50 years + worth of experience. Love to make stuff!

  164. Suzi zawistowicz says

    I like to make something new most days and if I’m not making things I’m usually working out how I can improve on something I’ve previously made or planning my next project. Im currently In the process of setting myself up to sell my crafts online….. Can’t wait for it all to come together. 🙂

  165. Beth says

    I make something new at least weekly and sometimes daily. It just depends on my available time, energy levels and creative juices. I love all things related to fiber crafting. But I also enjoy other creative pursuits. Most items I make are gifted or donated and rarely for profit. I don’t want to feel obligated to make anything that would take away from the joy I get in the creative process, but I would love to earn some cash along with the accolades.

  166. Gina says

    I am constantly making new things. Helping teach crochet one day, quilting, or making baby clothes the next. Thanks for giving us the chance to take our creativity to the next level.
