What’s not to luv about Craftication! It’s a great group of people who either have their own small business, or are thinking of starting one or are planning on talking about all things crafty. Besides all the great learning stuff (SEO, pricing, juried craft show tips, Etsy, WordPress etc.), they have great social events like the 80’s dance party or the wine tour, that let you network, pick up tips and get to know people.
If that’s not enough, it’s just plain eye candy and inspiration! Like color and design? How about a DIY idea for picture frames – add chicken wire to the backside of a picture frame and you get the extra design element of octagons! Now imagine this as a piece you could put in your home – to change-up your wall art any time…kid’s school art, family photos, collection of postcards, special events or your own inspiration board. If you need more inspiration add crafty DIY clothespins with a theme or just go abstract!
And how about the Reading Lounge table? I thought old typewriter wouldn’t be part of my design style until I saw the turquoise one – a little mod and I’m luv’in it! Yep, I’m convinced anything that comes in turquoise is decor worthy.
Check out the embroidery hoop with the fabric and the cutout letters…what a great way to use those millions of fabric scraps to make fabulous housewarming gifts, baby shower, kids rooms or even change out with the holidays! I know you’re thinking cutting out letters perfectly might just send you over the edge, but the imperfection in the letter size and style is what makes this extra great. If you really hate letter cutting or just don’t have the patience, Etsy is a great source for buying precut fabric letters and numbers.
Enjoy making spare time for new inspirations!
