Creating handicrafts is a great way to distract your thoughts for a while from the problems of the world around us. Embroidering, painting and crocheting, while they may seem very difficult at first, have the potential to quickly become your favorite anti-stress and calming activities while having a beautiful and artistic effect. What do you need to start your adventure with embroidering, painting and crocheting? We advise.


The beginning of the embroidery adventure fits perfectly into the positive trend related to less waste and slow fashionbecause all you need is a set of needles, hoops for embroidery (hoop), yarns or threads, and old fabrics on which you will train to embroider. You can dig out forgotten T-shirts, unused sheets or tablecloths from the wardrobe and use them as a base for embroidering various patterns. Practicing embroidery usually takes some time and requires a lot of patience, but the results are definitely worth it. Many girls have recently managed to open their embroidery businesses (e.g. on second-hand and second-hand clothes), so who knows – maybe you will join them in some time?

You do not need to be a painting graduate at the Academy of Fine Arts or have completed professional courses to be able to enjoy creating pictures with paints and brushes. If you are a person who often experiences stress and is not able to fully rest – it is worth considering pouring your thoughts onto canvas or paper with a wide range of colorful paints. For people who do not have any experience with painting, we recommend ready-made contour pictures (resembling coloring books for children), which can be filled with the colors and techniques of your choice.

The created works can hang in your room or you can give them to loved ones as a gift.
