There's something about crafting that puts us so at ease. Whether we're knitting a scarf or scribbling recklessly in an adult coloring book, taking time out of our jam-packed schedules to do something with our own hands is about as calming as it gets.
"There's promising evidence coming out to support what a lot of crafters have known anecdotally for quite some time," clinical neuropsychologist Catherine Carey Levisay told CNN. "And that's that creating — whether it be through art, music, cooking, quilting, sewing, drawing, photography, or cake decorating — is beneficial to us in a number of important ways."
It doesn't matter if you're a do-it-yourself fanatic or just starting to get your craft on, we've rounded up a bunch of cute, useful projects — from painting and stitching to gluing and molding — that'll help you calm down after (or in the middle of) a crazy day.
