Crafts are items that are made by hand. In the Victorian era, women of fine breeding were often measured by their ability to use leisure time in the pursuit of creating dainties like doilies. Now, these activities are things enjoyed by people of all backgrounds and include crochet, jewelry making, woodworking, sewing, and any form of handmade expression.

We have included hobbies in this category because crafts are typically done in leisure time for the enjoyment of it as are hobbies. Although a person might earn money from these endeavors they are typically not a person’s main vocation. In fact, a day job is often a source of maintaining crafting and hobbies.

The third part of this category includes subjects like interior design, clutter control, and home improvement.
