    It's a reality that our talent in art help us to release stress. For me polymer clay and scrapbook is a big help. What about you?

      Quilting helps me to relax. It's just hard to find time to actually quilt. smile

      I used to be super crafty. I've crocheted, cross stitched, made clothes, done embroidery, quilted. I haven't done anything for a long time until I found out my youngest daughter (21) is expecting!! So, together, we started a scrap book to track her pregnancy and will carry it over to make a baby book out of it.

    To ease stress I like to knit.  I enjoy simple projects so I can unwind completely.

    It may not be a craft, but writing will certainly allow you accomplish that. smile

    I love to paint, I love to illustrate and I love to draw.  The use of the hand to depict images is an amazing experience. Everyone can practice drawing images and doing "art therapy" every day!
    I also love to design jewelry.  I go to thrift stores and pick up old necklaces, bracelets for really cheap, break them apart and design away! Get a set of tools and a How-To book and anyone can design and create their own necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

    Knitting and crocheting. Even if it's a challenging project, it still takes my mind off stressful things in life.
