To me, Craftster is about sharing projects/ideas/information and encouraging others in their creative pursuits. This can lead to learning new skills and venturing into new areas of craft.

I love coming up with unique and useful handmade gifts for my friends and family. Since getting my embroidery machine a few years ago, customized dish towels and fuzzy blankets have become my go-to handmade gift. Since so many of my friends have them now, I was starting to struggle to come up with new designs that I liked. I decided to stretch myself to try something new, so I bought a few simple stock design and digitized my own text to go with them, based on an image that I saw printed on an apron in a boutique while on vacation several months ago.


My friend loved the towels...and now several other friends want the same towels. I think I know what everyone will be getting for the holidays this year.
