Have You Visited Cuteable.com?

Cuteable.com is one of my favorite blogs to check out daily.  She always posts such… well, CUTE… stuff!  I love the concept behind the blog (sharing cute items), and how open and generous Lynsey seems to be!  She has a HUGE flickr group and she not only allows people to add items… she actually requests it!  You can read more about how YOU can share YOUR cute items with the Cuteable.com readers by clicking HERE.

Now go… get your “cute” on!

Send Me Your Etsy Minis

Because I’m slightly more than a little totally addicted to Etsy.com, I can guarantee that at least half of my posts will feature artists and crafters I find on etsy.  I love, love, love the idea of having a blog that not only promotes what I do (in a small way), but also offers an opportunity for others to promote what THEY do.

I hope to make it VERY easy for etsy shop owners to advertise here on BlogCrafts.com.  And one of the ways I’ll do this is with the Etsy Mini Page.   Do you have an etsy shop?  Send me your etsy mini code, and you’ll be added to the page!*  For now I’ll just add them as they come in, but if it grows too large for one page, I’ll break the minis into categories for easy viewing.

So… email me your code, folks!  char @ blogcrafts.com (without the spaces).  Please select thumbnail size of 75 and 1 column, 3 rows when creating your code to send my way.

*I reserve the right to refuse any etsy mini with items that might clash with my “family friendly” atmosphere.  Thanks for understanding!

Halloween Pumpkins

Well, here it is…almost the end of October, and my kids have been begging me to carve a pumpkin already.  We’ll be visiting the local pumpkin farm in the next couple of days, and in preparation, I started searching for fun and original ways to carve or decorate a pumpkin.  Here are some of the links/projects I found:

Featured blog – Creations By SAZ

I come from a very talented, crafty, creative family.  Mother, sister, grandmothers, aunts.  All crafty!

Today I want to share a few photos from my aunt’s blog – Creations By SAZ.  She makes THE most exquisite cards – all pieces of art, every one.   Here are a few she made for Halloween this year:

Gorgeous!!  You can see more cards and treat bags and other fun designs on her blog.
