I'm both, but I'd say I'm more artistic than crafty. I love to make things and I crochet a lot. In the last couple of years I've stopped using crochet patterns and just make whatever comes to me. I crocheted a giant stuffed toy for my brother-in-law using only a picture as a guide, so I've felt that is on a level of artistry that I don't get when I follow a pattern. In high school, I would sew drawstring backpacks without using a pattern too. I'd just imagine what I needed to do for it to function (the straps being the drawstrings) and just do it.
