Crafting Love

Way back in 2013 I introduced you to Maggie Oman Shannon through her wonderful book “Crafting Calm: Projects and Practices for Creativity and Contemplation”. Fast forward 5 years and now we have “Crafting Love: Sharing Our Hearts Through the Work of Our Hands”.

“Crafting Love” explores 7 categories of love: romance, friends/teachers/mentors, family, nature (places and animals), self-love, others in the world, and the divine. Just reading her thoughts on the different ways we experience, express, and share love is gratifying and could have been a nice little book in and of itself. However, just like with “Crafting Calm”, Shannon offers loads of ideas and inspiration for things to create.

Kindness cards, family trees, edible love notes, goddess rosaries, and much more are offered up as suggestions. The wide variety of craft projects suggested cover ideas for beginners to experienced DIYers. Her ideas are sure to inspire some original projects of your own! “Crafting Love” by Maggie Oman Shannon challenges you to put some love out into the world.
