National Craft Month

7 years ago

Well, it is here - officially!  National Craft Month.

Now, for those of you who are not crafters, this might seem like an odd thing to blog about.  For those of us who are crafters, however, this is like month-long crafty Mardi Gras. 

What I love about this month is that crafters from all over come together and make stuff.  It is that simple.  That pure.  That awesome.

Stores nationwide offer discounts, free ideas, classes and more all in support of the art of crafting.  Bloggers have fun sharing their creations via their blogs, facebook, and twitter.  Manufacturing companies provide tips and tricks for their tools, offer contests, and want to play with us, too!  It is truly a chance for people who craft, work in craft, design in craft, etc... to all come together to share and just enjoy the passion of what we all love to do...  create.

I know that I will definitely be getting my craft on this month - everything from scrapbooking to  fun jewelry projects, and even some home decor.  For me it is a chance to see a new technique, try something new, and just experiment and play.  Thanks to all of the discounts out there, it is a great chance to buy something new and take a leap of creative faith! 

So, if you have always wanted to try something crafty, this is the perfect month to take the step.  Check out your local retailers, your fellow bloggers, and even some manufacturers - you never know what will inspire you and get your creative juices flowing!

Happy Crafting! 

Now, I am off to do some creating...
