I'd love to learn more about what kind of crafts you make! Do you enjoy teaching other people how to make crafts? Do you make them for yourself? For family members? Have you ever sold any of your crafts?
Depending on what you want to do with crafting, you could pursue a degree in small business or entrepreneurship which could provide a foundation for building a crafting business. Or you could pursue a degree in marketing that focuses on social media and communications to provide a foundation on how to get people interested in your crafting projects through things like a personal blog, Etsy, Tumblr, Pinterest, etc. You could also consider getting an art education degree to explore all potential craft mediums and to teach others your love of crafting. There's even a Craft & Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles - Reach out to fellow crafters - bloggers, YouTubers, friends and more - to find out how they are making money and what path they pursued in school. The options are limitless!
