Tiny House

I love looking at tiny houses, both online and on tv (Tiny House Hunters and Tiny Luxury). It’s fun to imagine living in one. Would it be comfortable? Would all my stuff fit? And most importantly of all: where would all my craft suppies go?!? Well, if you love tiny, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet; […]

Let’s Go Camping!

When I was growing up, my family used to travel every summer. There were five of us, so we always went camping instead of staying in hotels. All those nights of sitting around a campfire and eating dinners outside were so special to us all. We loved going on those trips. That’s why this travel […]

Boy, do I feel sheepish!

It’s been an amazing weekend, I got to hold (and was peed on by, but let’s gloss over that) a two week old lamb. He was with a rescue group, and if the city didn’t ban farm animals, I might have wanted to take him home. I already have the Border Collie, might as well […]

This would also make a great home organizer, jewelry box, or holder of […]

Fun with Gelli!

I recently got a Gelli plate, and to look for some idea I turned, of course, to the countless projects posted on Craftster. And I found more than I thought I would – there were, of course, the pretty and fun prints themselves, which are an art project as they are – like this set […]

Where the Fairies Are

Some say that fairies are all around us, and who am I to argue that point? A fairy’s gotta live somewhere, though, and here on Craftster, you can find several examples of lovely fairy abodes. amethyst6 built this sweet little cottage in hopes that a fairy might move in. With a nice fenced in yard and garden, […]

These bags can be customized for any […]

  This weekend, make a nice cactus that just can’t be killed. The plants in this pot are actually painted rocks! alwaysinmyroom, an admitted serial cactus killer, can sleep soundly at night because there’s no watering these succulents. Plus, bonus: no chance of injuries from sharp cactus spines!
