Take a good look around at your local retail stores as well as handmade and you will find that there is a new trend surfacing: Woodland. I have noticed cute little foxes and squirrels popping up on gorgeous sweaters for my 2 year old as well as in home decor. You can find simple silhouettes and woodsy feeling jewelry just about everywhere you look. iCraft has several crafters who are picking up on this trend... Read more

Today my dear friend Audrey McClelland completed a segment on the Today Show talking about the upcoming fashion trends for 2013 . I love seeing predictions like these and watching how they quickly cross over to home decor and crafting in general. This year features bold colors, emerald green, metallics and more! I'm especially excited about the green factor since it is the school color for the high... Read more
In just a few short days we will be celebrating a New Year! While we generally hang out around our home to ring it in, I do like to have a few fun crafts as well as make the house look festive. I received an old window frame for Christmas that I can hardly wait to use to re-decoracte our mantel. Some of these craft ideas will work perfectly with my gorgeous new/old piece. I hope you enjoy these as much as I... Read more
Growing up, my favorite part of Christmas was opening the stocking . It seems everyone in the family had their own method of doing this. There are the "dumpers" (dump it all out in a pile and then dig through the loot) and the "pickers" (one by one pick things out of the stocking and examine carefully). When I was younger I was definitely a dumper, but now I like to savor every moment of... Read more
If you have not yet heard of Pinterest it is time to join the craze! I understand some of the hesitation. I even thought, "Not another thing!" when I first heard about Pinterest. Well, the reality is that it is making a difference for my personal blog traffic and it is doing wonders for crafters who rely upon word of mouth or sites like to sell their products.

We are in the Thanksgiving mood around this house! Not only have we busted out the Christmas music, but we are head over heels into nature walks. The weather is constantly changing in North Carolina, but lately it has been mild enough to take walks with a light jacket. My two year old loves to pick up things along the way which sparked this simple but fun craft idea today.

We have several pine trees as well... Read more
I was first drawn to Quartetclocks because of the modern time pieces they were creating . You will find abstract art and uniquely created constructions to fit a customer's wish list. The colors are bright and inviting and the clocks are truly one of a kind.

So, it is my pleasure to introduce to you the father and daughter duo that make up Quartetclocks .

While crafting is not my profession, it is something I have come to love for many reasons.

For starters, I grew up with a mother who was always sewing, crafting and creating. She really could have done it for a profession and has been paid on a few occasions, but she does it for fun and for loved ones. I also love the satisfaction it brings to know that you created something all yourself with your very own... Read more
There are a few things that I will never forget about my own childhood. One of those things was creating and being crafty with my mother. She always had a room full of fun things that I could use (old buttons, colorful paper, yarn, glue, etc). There were only a few things that were off limits to me and she wanted me to be creative and have fun. Granted, my mother is also a very creative woman, but she always... Read more
