Craft Definition: Craftastrophe
When is a mess more than just a mess? When you can't see what is holding it up anymore. When you're not sure if you're crafting on top of a card table or a pile of boxes. When the only thing keeping the supplies from creating a sparkly avalanche onto the floor is your crafty mojo. That's when you know you have a craftastrophe on your hands.
Like many natural disasters, you can't see a craftastrophe coming. In most cases, you don't know that a craftastrophe has occurred until you look up, and realize that you're in the middle of one. In fact, a passer-by is more likely to recognize you as the victim of a craftastrophe than you are.
But fear not. If you've found yourself in the aftermath of a craftastrophe, there is no need to call FEMA or the Red Cross. In most cases, you can choose to extract yourself when you deem the time is right. And although there may never be full recovery, in general, there are lots of beautiful things that are made in the process of forming a craftastrophe.
