    Lots of ways to do this.  Many local craft stores have classes to teach you a new craft, as do senior centers and local art centers.  Sign up.  That way, you can try out different things and see what works for you.  College and university art courses can also be of great help learning a new craft...I learned how to make stained glass artwork in such a class.

    If you are not comfortable learning among others, you can get books and crafting kits with step-by-step instructions to try your hand at a craft.  Don't be afraid to jump right in!  You'll be amazed what you can do when you put your mind to it.

    I always save interesting articles in the paper, then put them in a bin with materials and things I might be able to use for crafts and whatnot. for example, I found a cool article on making treasure boxes from cigar boxes and stickers and things, so as I collect things that I might like to use for those, I save them and put them in the bins, then when I am ready to make something, I have most of what I need. and your craft should be something that interests you. I like flowers and gardening, so I save seed packets, which are very colorful and pretty. then I mount them on pieces of wood (holes pre-drilled) and decoupage them. they dry to a high gloss and make nice wall hangings for kitchens and patios, and are a fun little gift for friends and family. have fun!

    I gather first all the materials needed like, beads, threads, pictures, I cut letters & words written in big letters from old magazines, anything that i found it useful, then my own photograph or my friends or relatives as the main material... Actually alot of stores offers many of the materials needed for making a scrapbook... Then use your imagination, set a theme likes, the occassion, season, or activities... example the picture was taken during your vacation in a beach... so you can use shells, sands, pictures of a beach and I advise you to put captions, titles, sayings, whatever.... mind you it added to the effect and it make your scrapbook more personal and alive, let your scrapbook do the talking....
