    WitchCrafts: Crafts for Witches Interviews Michael DeMeng of Art Abandonment     I’m an avid crafter. You will always find me working on something or many somethings. Whenever I go somewhere I take a project with me, I have to have my hands moving in some creative way at every moment. I’m also an enthusiastic giver! I love giving people gifts more than receiving them. If I know something is going to make someone happy I have to give them it. Nothing makes me happier, then knowing that I caused someone’s joy.
