Favorite - Getting Healthy With Craftsy!

It's time for another one of my favorites!

Craftsy and getting healthy, what could they possibly have in common? We all know that a good creative flow is good for your mental health, but what about your physical health? Can Craftsy play a big role in that as well?

The answer is YES! I am really struggling to get on the healthy track and my biggest obstacle is exercise. I just hate it! OK, I said it, I hate exercise! I wish I didn't, but I do. But what I do love as much as the thought of being healthy and fit, are the Craftsy classes! I love the fact that I can take my tablet or my laptop to my elliptical and exercise while I'm learning a new skill or technique. Before I know it, my time is up!

If you haven't tried the classes yet, I strongly suggest that you give them a try. You don't even have to exercise while watching them, you can sit in the comfort of your favorite chair or your desk. You can even follow along while making projects. I have learned so much from these classes.

My favorite one so far, has been the "Design Your Own Handbag" class. I've been designing my own handbags since I was fourteen and I thought I knew it all, but I was amazed at how much I learned from this class. I also loved that fact that it's interactive with the Craftsy community.

The last class I bought is "Machine Quilting: Free Motion and More." I haven't really gotten into that one yet, but I'm really looking forward to it, while sweating on the elliptical of course. When I want to try something I've already seen, I can always go back to that part later. 

If you are unsure about the concept of the classes on video, I suggest you try one of the many free ones they have to offer. Love them too!

I love selling my patterns there and I love taking their classes too. I'd also like to mention that their customer service is the best around. Every time I write them with a question or comment, they get back to me right away.

So that has been my experience with Craftsy. Why don't you stop by there yourself and check out their patterns and classes. If you are into sewing and crafting, it will quickly become one of your favorite websites. You can even be like me and use it as an enjoyable (in informative) way to get you through a workout!

If you want to head over there right now, there are two graphics on my sidebar that will take you there. Or you can just click HERE.

Happy Crafting!
