Articraft is Not a Word

I’m going to be talking about both art and craft in this blog, and I wish there was a word that meant art-and-craft, because that’s really what I’m going to be talking about: physical things that we create which are beautiful. Some would say “but crafts are functional and art is not”, but I’m fairly sure that jewellery making is a craft. I’m not one for the snooty distinction that “art” is superior to “craft”. Rubbish! A distinction made by the insecure to prop up the untalented. I am an Artist, I am an Artisan, I am a Creative.

When we make something beautiful, we feed our soul. There does not need to be any more reason than that.
