You love arts and crafts? I'm in art school right now! What kind of crafts/arts do you like? I'm studying animation and design!
Wow, neat! Going to animation school was a dream of mine when I was a kid, but then I was too nervous and shamed myself a lot when it came to putting together a portfolio and never pursued it (which I sometimes regret!) So keep at it and never give up! And if you have any examples, please do share - I love stuff like that!
As for me, I enjoy digital art a lot, for traditional, I like working with colored pencils (the layered kind, like Prismacolors) - I think on those, its because I feel like I have a bit more control over it than other medium.
Though within the last year. I had picked up cosplay (recreating costumes of fictional characters) as a hobby - it actually helped me focus and think of other things during the worst period of my attacks. With that, it actually incorporates a lot of strange pattern design, crafting materials, etc, so I find it really satisfying. :D
