In our opinion, there aren’t many things that are better than crafting. We are big fans of a number of other things though, so we’ll fully admit that our very favourite kind of crafting is the kind that combines more than one thing we love in one place. That’s why, when we were suddenly introduced to the idea of Star Trek crafts, we were absolutely ecstatic!
