In 2006 I moved into an old tavern house built in 1775. In researching the history of the house we discovered that it was once owned by 2 sisters listed on the deed as Ursula and Olive, Maiden Ladies. That was the legal way to say "Spinsters" back in the 1800's.
I felt an immediate bond with the previous home owners and they've become my crafting ghosts who fly around the house and inspire me to create (and they occasionally steal my scissors, but they bring them back after I spend 10 minutes franticly looking for them).
As for me, I have a very bad case of craft ADD. I love crafting all sorts of things and tend to have 10 different projects going at the same time. A lot of my projects involve recycling old items into something new. I do this with books, neckties and forks (usually not all togehter at the same time, but I won't rule it out).
