Be Crafty!

Ever wish that you could get together with your girlfriends and have a crafty day like we like to do here at The Crafty Collaborative?


Well guess what, your dreams have come true!

The absolutely darling Jessica of Jeff Loves Jessica and Amanda of My Little Dear have teamed up to create Be Crafty, a fun series of workshops that you can attend with your favorite girls and craft the day away.  Be Crafty workshops are held in both the Twin Cities and in Fargo.

Most recently, Jessica and Amanda have added the option of arranging your own private Be Crafty soiree; whether it be a Girl’s Night, a children’s Birthday party or even gearing up for the Big Day with special wedding crafts and planning!  They’ve got you covered!


A few of us Crafty Collaborative gals have had the pleasure of joining Jessica and Amanda at a handful of Be Crafty events and have loved them each time.  The girls have everything you could ever need to complete the projects and both happen to be excellent teachers with plenty of patience (an excellent quality when teaching a room full of spunky gals a new trick)!

As a matter of fact, it was at my first Be Crafty workshop about one year ago that I first shared my idea about The Crafty Collaborative with my pal Sarah (in the car on the way there).  We then met Mandy and asked her to join us!

I went home feeling so inspired and excited that I officially kicked The Crafty Collaborative up off the ground by purchasing our domain name and here we are today!

See what fun things happen when you get creative and inspired by attending a Be Crafty workshop yourself!
