Craft Resolutions: Maggie Oman Shannon

artwork by Michelle Edwards

To welcome this New Year, we thought it might be fun to talk to some of our Living Crafts friends- present and past contributors, all very creative people, and see what goals, visions and dreams inspire their craft resolutions for 2012!

This is the last post in this series… and an appropriate one that holds an invitation for Living Crafts readers to contribute and particpate.

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading this series and that these posts have inspired some of your own craft resolutions for 2012!

Maggie Oman Shannon’s Craft Resolution for 2012:

  ” My most immediate 2012 craft resolution is to finish the manuscript for my new book, which has a working title of With Hands and Heart: Crafting as a Spiritual Practice.

  It is scheduled to be published later this year, and I’d love to invite Living Crafts readers to be a part of it.   I would love to hear from you if you have had the experience of your particular craft activities becoming something more, something sacred—a form of prayer or spiritual practice. If you’d like to submit a story, a thought, or a quotation that’s meaningful to you about how crafting can be a spiritual practice, please leave a comment here and also send it to me at by March 1, 2012.

  Many thanks to you and Living Crafts—and wishing each of you a happy, healthy and creative new year!”

    Something I wrote back in 2010…
    Not sure if it fits, but there it is!
