What’s great about the world of crafting is that it brings unique, talented women together. Whether you regularly attend scrapbooking crops or just have some friends who like to craft together every so often, having a crafting squad is basically the BEST—just read the reasons below!
1. They give you an excuse to slip out for some much needed “me” time.
Whether you’re a stay-at-home mama or a working woman, every gal needs a little “me” time to recharge her batteries—and going over to a friend’s house for a craft night is just the thing!
2. They understand the obsession.
They don’t think it’s crazy to stay up until midnight on your computer waiting for the launch of new crafting products—in fact, they’ll be up all night with you as you place your order and chat about your favorite new items!
3. They don’t mind when you go down memory lane because that’s what they’re all about—preserving and creating memories!
They totally get it if, while you’re scrapbooking, you somehow end up telling a 20-minute-long story about your cousin’s daughter’s dog: They value storytelling and memories, and they want to learn more about your family because they truly care about you.
4. They let you use their fun gadgets and gizmos.
What’s the next best thing to owning the latest and greatest crafting products? Knowing somebody that does! 😉 When you have a crafting squad, it’s like your crafting stash multiplies! They let you borrow their tools, and you let them do the same because that’s just what crafting buddies do! #squadgoals
5. They get your creative juices going.
When you hang out with your squad, you get to see the amazing artwork they create, which is always sure to inspire new ideas for you!
6. They teach you cool techniques and tricks.
On a similar note, you get to learn new techniques and tricks from your squad. When you have a problem you’re trying to overcome, two heads (or three, or four, or five…) are better than one!
7. They help you when you’re in a pickle.
Need last-minute décor for a forgotten birthday party? Did your Cricut® machine give up the ghost right before your crop? Do you need glitter paper for the school project due tomorrow that your kid just told you about? Crafting squad to the rescue! They’ll always have your back.
8. They make you feel like you belong to something bigger than yourself.
It’s not just about crafting. It’s about having a second family, a sisterhood, who understands you and accepts you for who you are.
9. They give you confidence and encourage you to be yourself.
They boost your self-esteem and make you feel validated when they admire your artwork. They make you feel capable of doing more than you thought you could, which translates into all aspect of your life.
10. They help you reach your goals and dreams.
Whether you’re trying to catch up on scrapbooking your family photos, creating handmade invitations for an upcoming event, or working toward earning an all-inclusive trip by being a Close To My Heart Consultant, they help you get closer to reaching your goals and dreams. It’s the best support group a girl could ask for. 🙂
