What does the word crafties mean?

I’m sure you are wondering, did I read that right? Yep you did! What does the word crafties mean anyway? Today, I am going to teach you what it means here at Fourth East Craft Co.

Have you ever had a friend that just got you? One where you had so much in common and you just got along? Or maybe a friend where you can go FOREVER without seeing each other and then when you finally do see each other again, it’s as if no time had passed at all. Do you have a friend that would bend over backwards for you, or give you the shirt off their back, or drive to Montana (or somewhere far) and back to rescue you from a bad experience? Or maybe a friendship like the one in the song Goodbye Earl by (FKA) the Dixie Chicks? If so, I’m gonna pretty much guess they are your best friend. Or what some people may call, your bestie. A bestie is to be cherished and held on to!

You’re probably still wondering, what does that have to do with it?

Yeah, did it just click in your brain? Let me explain it a little more. Like a bestie, a craftie is THAT friend…but in a craft sense. You love glitter and glue and creating things together. The two of you are on the lookout for fun exciting new décor or gifts to make. You can’t wait to tell them about the latest project you did or the new design coming out. You see ribbons, fabrics, or paints and think of them and wonder what they would make with them, or what great ideas they would have. The smell of wood and stain brings back memories of when you first crafted together. You can’t wait to show them how you decorated with your latest find. Or you could talk for hours about everything crafts. This is your craftie!

There is a special connection between best friends. A connection that uplifts and inspires and makes you stronger than you would otherwise be on your own. As is the case with a craftie.

If you are still reading this, you are one of my crafties.

We need each other! Together we tap into our creativity and become confident and stronger. We have a relationship that lifts us and bonds us as we grow and reach our potential. We could talk for hours about the latest trends or techniques. I am grateful for my crafties and I love helping each one of you find or strengthen your creativity. I need you as much as you need me. So stick around, we’re in this together.

Thanks for sticking around, my craftie friend!
