With thanks to Pinterest, crafts and DIY projects are off the charts. Handmade crafts are a great way to customize your home, bond with your kids, personalize a gift and simply entertain yourself!
Today’s Creative Blog
This blog “features the best creative blogs daily.” Started just over five years ago, Kim chooses a different craft blog to highlight every day. She also picks out specific projects that you can do at home. With kid’s crafts, paper crafts, decorating ideas, recipes, sewing projects and an entire section dedicated to holiday crafts, this is a blog you don’t want to miss.
Dollar Store Crafts
Another daily blog, Dollar Store Crafts focuses on projects that are easy, chic and, of course, cheap! They choose projects where all of the materials can be purchased at your local dollar store. Projects are categorized as “$1 or free,” “$5 and under” and “$10 and beyond.” Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t partake in crafts, and this blog proves just that!
How Does She?
“How Does She?” was founded by three married women with kids. The name comes from women constantly wondering how other women accomplish so much. “How does she do this? How does she do that?” are the questions, and this blog provides the answers! Categories include “Celebrating Seasons,” “Cooking and Baking,” “Fashion,” “Family,” “Running a Household” and more. The blog’s goal is to create better mothers, better wives and better women. It’s a blog every women needs to follow.
Positively Splendid will absolutely suck you in, so make sure you have a few hours (or days) to spare before diving in. Fall in love with blog founder Amy, homemaker and mother of four, as she turns her home into a beautiful array of projects and decorations. Check out the “Project Tutorials” page for photos of all of her projects and ideas, along with step-by-step tutorials so you can do them yourself. Not only are her projects to die for, just wait till you check out her “Recipes” page and “Seasonal Ideas.” Honestly, craft blogs don’t get much better than Positively Splendid!
