OMG ya'll! I have discovered CRAFTIVISM! Is this new? Am I behind on a movement? Art, literature, and music have been inspired by revolution and protest for centuries.

I mean Liberty Leading the People is iconic.

But crafting?! Cross stitch, knitting, decoupage, etc...

But, I can totally see it now. There has always been a separation in art and crafting to me. One being more high brow and the other more common. However, its all an act of creation and community.

Craftivism Definition

Craftivism is a way of looking at life where voicing opinions through creativity makes your voice stronger, your compassion deeper & your quest for justice more infinite.

My mind is blown that crocheting an afghan can be subversive. And now I must go and relearn how to cross stitch.
