Every morning on my way to work, I create. On the crowded New York subway train, between shuffling feet, crumpled newspapers and coffee cups, there I sit, crocheting, hand-sewing or drawing. Making things is my form of meditation, a way to center myself and prepare for the day ahead.
I create to find peace.
Why do you create? Today we’re launching the #whyicreate gift card giveaway. Until April 28, share an Instagram photo or tweet of your process, inspiration or craft using the hashtag #whyicreate and mentioning @etsy and you could win a $250 Etsy gift card!*
“I love making myself and other people smile, which is why I draw cats and dogs.” #whyicreate
What inspires you to create? We look forward to seeing your #whyicreate posts!
