This is the place to be if you are looking for inspiration and geeky crafting know-how. My goal is to show you many different ways to use the tools you own (or are considering acquiring) so you can have more creative fun.
To the right is my blog. Anything and everything that happens in my craft room makes its way here.
Below are the four topics that my blogging and crafting escapades revolve around.
Everything is set up to be just a click away! I hope you find the inspiration and know-how you are looking for! Have fun!
I love watercoloring with Distress Inks. Add the new layered stamps, and you can create spectacular images. So I look like an amazing artist, and while it does take some skill, not the level of skill I would need to free-hand this.
Tools are what we use to create. They include the ink, the paper, the embossing powder and glitter. Paint, brayer, stamps and stamping tools, gelli plate and markers. You get the idea.
The more you know about a tool, the easier it is to create and play with it.

Techniques are where playing and learning come together.
A technique teaches me how to use a tool and also helps me to think creatively about the possibilities. I find that watching what someone else does with a tool helps me ask my own “What if I….?” Those are the best “playing” words!
Click here for short tutorials about techniques that will spark your own creative playtime.
Projects bring tools and techniques together. Projects are the finished product of an idea, a technique or two, and knowledgeable tool usage.

Reviews of the latest and greatest crafting stuff. What do I think about inks, stamps, stamping tools, pastes, paints, papers, and companies?
Well, let me tell you!

Hi! Nice to meet you!
My name is Dixie Cravens. I am LDS and a wife, homeschooling mom (of 5!), on-line student, daughter, sister, and friend. That’s a lot of roles! I am also a crafter. That’s sort of an understatement.
This new blog is a project that I am working on for a business class. My hope is that this is just the beginning of a wonderful journey.
