Crème de la Craft

I share my unique DIY tutorials to encourage others to create. With projects featured on hundreds of sites, my blog is a place for anyone who enjoys creativity and is looking for DIY inspiration. It focuses on simple DIY projects made from everyday objects. I love repurposing old items into my own unique treasures inspired by some of today’s latest trends in home, design and fashion. The crafting gene has followed me from birth, to my first job as an arts and crafts instructor, to where I am today...still crafting strong.

Since I craft all the time, I wanted to be as relaxed as possible on my wedding day and try to put down the glue gun for a change! ...more

Looking back at my wedding craft projects, my invitations were one of my favorite. I was really happy with the way they turned out, but most importantly, the process of making them was so memorable.

My process is pretty simple: (1) research (2) inspiration (3) create. And since the "key" ingredient (see what I did there?) to finding inspiration is the research phase, I partnered with Bing for a behind-the-scenes look at how I came up with today's project! ...more
