Practicing Creativity


Through the years, I've picked up quite a few tips from other crafters that have helped me enormously. At times, I've struggled to do something and finally figured out an easier way to achieve what I wanted. Maybe I wondered how can I do that and then found the answer. In the spirit of sharing, I like to include the occasional crafty tip in my posts – just little ideas that can make your crafty life easier, cut back on waste, and save you a little money along the way. The links below take you to the post where the tip appeared and show how it was used.
