Happy Wednesday! We are so excited to be back today with four lovely blogs to feature. Some of our favorite project ideas from the blogs below include making amulets from play dough with kids, making quilled earrings, transforming a tea towel into an apron, and stitching up zippered purses with a bird print. We are almost certain that you’ll love these blogs as much as we do, so be sure to visit the fabulous craftin’ divas at Partycraft Secrets, Quilling Me Softly, Lins Arty Blobs, and A Time For Stitching!
“Partycraft Secrets started when I decided I wanted to make my daughter’s birthday party as you-nique as possible and started looking for inspirational craft projects I could create. I realised there were plenty of available resources, but they were often spread far and wide. So I decided to create single-source craft e-books filled with easy craft projects for kids and their parents, invitations, decorations, keepsakes and of course the party printables we’re are all so passionate about. The blog is a daily labour of love detailing my new party-crafting passion and preschool-parenting journey.” — Linda
“Hello, I am Pritesh, a scientist by education and training and an artist by passion. I have been quilling for 11 months now. My quilling blog, Quilling Me Softly, is largely a compilation of the quilling work I have done so far. Since I am a self-taught quiller, I learnt things the hard way. It prompted me into posting tutorials for whatever I could, and you’ll be able to benefit from the video tutorials link on my blog. I am currently working as a quiller full-time for my own craft studio, Aadyaa Originals, so stop by at www.aadyaa.com to take a look.” — Pritesh
“Hi, my name is Linda and I live in the U.K. Lins Arty Blobs is the place where I share my textiles, arts and crafts creations. I cover many different subjects, such as embroidery, mixed media art, sketchbooks, altered books, fabric design, collage, applique, drawing, illustrations, digital art, quilting, handmade stamps, photographs or needle felting. I also like to try new techniques and media, use recycled items when possible and offer tips from time to time too. Hope you stop by soon.” — Linda
”Ever since I was a young girl, I’ve always had a needle (or two) in my hand and some kind of crafting on the go. When I discovered blogs and realised crafting can be more than a hobby, I started A Time for Stitching, intending it to become a platform on which to build a little crafting business and to make some connections with like-minded people. However, it soon became evident that Time was seriously lacking for Stitching, so the blog developed to include other aspects of my life. I wasn’t sorry, though, because I’ve made many wonderful connections with lovely bloggers all over the world, but I’ve kept up with crafting as Time allows.
My creations are made mostly from recycled/reclaimed materials to turn unwanted items into something to be loved again. Most of my crafting has been for gifts or my home, but recently I’ve even sold a few requested items. I mainly make bags, cushions and quilts from fabric but have been known to pull back the odd unworn jumper to knit scarves or crochet bags with.” — Teresa
If you can never have too many project ideas, try repurposing an item you have collecting dust around the house. Whether it’s that baby changing table your little one has outgrown or those rain boots you never wear, have fun breathing new life into item that isn’t getting much use!
