The Crafty Collaborative!

Hello Crafty Readers!


We’ve decided to go on summer break!  Work on some projects at home, soak in some sun, and spend a little extra time with family and friends.


We’ll pop in here and there on our Facebook and Twitter pages to give you some ideas for summertime craftiness, so be sure to give us a “Like” or a “Follow“.


Hope you all have a fabulous summer vacation!
