Beautiful post, Rachelrose - and a lot of great follow-up comments, too. Thanks for helping me to view my papercrafting pastimes as something more...

I just wanted to add that the disdain for "craft" carries over into other areas, too. My husband is a mason - a truly gifted artisan - but is passed off as a "laborer" because he works with his hands. What happened to the time when the artisans/craftsmen of the world were celebrated and revered? Sad...
