DIY Crafting Ideas

While I’m playing in Utah this month and attending EVO12, I’ve twisted the arms of a few of my BFF blogging friends to write a guest post. You’ll love the crafting ideas from Stephanie.

Craft Making Ideas

I met Stephanie a couple of years ago and we just clicked. She’s always been there when I need something.  Her crafting ideas are always fun and inspiring. I always love seeing what she’ll come up with. I first featured her here and she also shared her favorite 5 as a guest post last year.

Let me stop controlling everything and turn this post over to Stephanie. :)



Hi Everyone! I’m Stephanie from Somewhat Simple and I’m excited to be here today.

Please excuse me while I make myself at home and share with you some of my recent favorite posts!
