Welcome Creative Crafters!

Sunflowers, Oh So Bright

 Hello Crafters -  I have to tell you this project was fun. Relaxing for sure. I love the look of the wreath. I will be making more for sure. Maybe with macrame cord. I recently decorated my office for my co-workers with sunflowers. It makes the office seem so cheery and bright.  Enjoy this project. Notes on how to make it and a couple of tips along the way are on the pictures. The pictures uploaded out of order, so I put numbers by the pictures to help with the step-by-step. Happy Crafting!

Clothes Pins Easter Carrots

 4.5.2021 Hey there crafters!  I hope everyone had a good Easter. Maybe you were able to spend some time with family and friends due to the vaccine. We had a quite day at home. I made some crafts. I know I just posted a little over a week ago a different kind of carrot made with a wooden spool, but this one was cute also so I had to make it. Below are the step-by-step pictures on how to make them. Another easy craft for ya. As I started back on this journey I was doing some thinking last week. At first when I started this blog in 2018/2019 I wanted to post every week.  Then I started school in early 2020 and had really no time to make much of anything. The past few weeks have been great in getting back into creating again. I guess what I am trying to say is there is going to be no rush to post weekly. When I first started back up that was my intention, but honestly my days at work are sometimes mentally exhausting and it is hard to muster up the energy to create. Really what I want to

 3.21.2021 - Happy re-Launch Day! Creating Crafty Things is back! Here are CCT we are not talking about or acknowledging the you know what that is going on in the world...we are here to forget and CREAT!!!  I am excited to be back and creating things. For my first project I made something easy. It is for Spring time; Wooden Spool Carrots. There is a short list of supplies that has been listed on the first picture then followed by how to paint and add the pipe cleaner stems....Ta - da, all done.  I am looking forward to creating lot of projects with you. Some classics, some unique, and some challenging. I am working on getting my video equipment up and running. I’m taking things slow and easy. There is no pressure to rush back in a hurry. So, some posts will be pictures with instruction like this one and others will be videos. I may have mentioned in my post a couple of weeks ago that I opened an account on Twitch as well. I’m going to give that a try as well, once the video equipment i

Re-Launching of Creating Crafty Things

 HELLOOOO Everyone -  I have missed posting for ya’ll so much. I was a away for a good reason though. I went back to school (CSUSM) to update my Human Resources Management Certificate. I passed with flying colors (Hahaha - A’s & B’s) on Feb. 25.2021. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to do it again. Their HR Management Program give such valuable skills that can be used in the workplace. So...now that school is done, I am  re-launch Creating Crafty Things and that date is set for; Sunday, March 21, 2021! Mark your calendars. Sundays will also be posting day of pre-recorded videos. It is going to take me a little bit to get a routine, so I hope you will be able to hang in there with me while I work it all out. I have a list of great projects we are going to do together. I even started a Twitch account so you can watch the projects being created live. If you haven’t heard of Twitch before, it is a platform that is used by many to be live and in person while doing crafts li

Be Your Do You For You.

I saw this saying not too long ago and it really resinated with me.  It is such a positive saying and something I believe in.  Life has its good and bad, ups and downs.... I wanted to let you all know I am still here and have every intention to post again. I have missed it.  This summer has been a challenge with family events. I don't want to say when I may be back up and posting again, but know that I am. Family comes first! See you soon! Happy Crafting! Denise

Mindfully Crafted

Hey Creative Crafters! It's Friday and I am feeling better from being sick and back from out of town. I will be starting on our next project in a few days. I have been taking a college class while getting my blog up and running. I have two more weeks. One assignment is due this Sunday and my final exam is due by next Sunday. Good thing it is open book! I hope you will take a few moments and read the article below. It gives you some insight as to why I am doing this blog.  I hope you enjoy it and please comment. Let's break the stigma of mental illness! It's ok to have it and talk about it. Crafting is just one of many things you can do to help you through those rough days. Happy Crafting!
