Holiday stress is running on full power for most of us these days.  I started looking for some ways to relieve stress and my search brought me to crafting.  I have always been a crafter and find working a craft very relaxing but it was not until recently that I realized that I was not alone in this stress relieving activity.  I found a blog  By Kristin Sidorov called How Crafting Can Save Your Health where she said...
"The do-it-yourself movement is in full swing, and homemade decorations, foods, and fashions are all the rage. Getting crafty is a great way to find a little “me time“—and it just so happens to be a top-notch stress reliever that can actually help you relieve pain, control blood pressure, beat back depression and anxiety, and aid in sleep."

With so many great sites on the internet like Pinterest and Craftgawker, we are flooded with ideas for crafting, cooking and repurposing things.  The problem comes up when you do not know how to actually carry out these projects.  Help is not far away!  CRE8 Workshop is a new space in Deerfield that does just that.  The staff at CRE8 will assist you to  make the craft of your dreams and eliminate the "How do I do this?" stress.
