Some of us like it nice and warm by the heat vents as our cat. Crafts can make one feel warm all over. I want to tell you about a great crafter blog I came across years ago called needles-and-quilters-me. (Lynn is the creater and she use to live in Central Minnesota but has lived in Hibbing, MN for a few years. Her husband is a retired professor. )
Just click it on, it has music to entertain you (it takes a few minutes to come on), and she follows so many great crafty blogs. You will be impressed and intrigued, and I think you will want to do needle point, make cards, do crafts or quilt.
My daughter is an advid needle pointer, I use to be, and I think she would love this site. She is taking knitting lessons this winter, and I use to be an advid knitter but have since stopped due to my thumb. I tried crocheting but it wasn’t my thing. This summer my daughter talked me into helping her with a few sewing projects. I made a few grunts over these projects that still remain unfinished until next summer. Being creative with ones hands is fun and makes winter more enjoyable.
On one of Lynn’s blog is the Graphics Fairy. Click it on and then click on “Links.” There are so many artsy crafty type blogs that you will be blown away.
You will want to create your own. You may want to consider doing a family blog to send out to relatives and friends throughout the year. I’d say this would be a pretty Green way to do it next year.
Check out how to make fairy houses, cinnamon bath salts, or fairy flowers. If you have grandchildren or children I recommend The Crafty Crow or imagine childhood.com
I see the numbers climbing on the people viewing this blog and the ones linked to her site. Lynn has done a great job of getting all these art folks on her website.
