As we age, we start to appreciate the beauty of creating things. It doesn’t matter what kind of craft you star – knitting or making jewelry – as long as it makes you feel good.

Even more than that, you may get so good at what you do that you may even be able to generate some extra-income out of your crafts as well. It may not be much, but at least it will be money coming into the house instead of being money spent.
