Crafty Monday: Getting Ideas
When I see an awesome project, I'm always so curious as to how the crafter/artist came up with it. Did they brainstorm for a while Thinker style? Were they chatting with friends and it snowballed from there? Did it come to them like a bus on the street? The important part to me is the story behind the craft. What in the world inspired this person to go out and spend their time creating something?
I know how I get my ideas and why I craft what I do. It all starts with the phrase, "Oh, wouldn't it be funny if..." and it goes crazy from there. 90% of crazy craft ideas I have get mentally approved because of the hilarity of the project. I really don't like doing something if it isn't going to amuse me in the long run. I want to be happy, and I want to have fun, so why not? Do it for the lulz.
