    I have used oil paints before, but they are very tricky to work with due to the consistency and taking so long to dry. I like the finished look of oil paint on canvas as it always looks so beautiful. I like how fast ac...

    Do you scrapbook? I have been doing it since I was about 16. I even do my sisters books for her even though they take a lot of time. It is very rewarding to look at them when I am done.

    I have a few craft type interests but no way to monetize them. So I feel guilty even trying. Should I craft anyway regardless or wait till I can find a way to make money off them?
