Crafty contests

Okay, I’ll admit I’ve never entered a craft contest, but I’ve always wanted to. Here are a couple of interesting contests that you should enter!

Indie Home Decor Challenge – Send a picture of your DIY home decor project and have a chance to win some really cool indie craft prizes. This contest ends June 18th.

PEEPS on Film – Create a video telling your PEEPS story (how you met them, or whatever…), or create a video showing what you can make with PEEPS. The winner receives several things, including a year’s supply of PEEPS! and a video camera. Nice. The deadline has been extended until May 31st.

So go enter one of these contests and win some cool prizes.

What Craft Projects are YOU Working On?

To help inspire me (and maybe inspire you as well) I thought it would be fun to share the craft projects you are currently working on. I am still working on getting my craft area set up. That could take a while!

So what are you working on? Leave a comment and let us know what craft you’re working on these days. And if you have pictures of the craft, even better! Post a link so we can see.

Let’s inspire each other!

Your Craft Space

craftroom

I just moved from one apartment to another this weekend. Moving is stressful and difficult, to say the least. However, it’s gotten me to think about my craft space and how I want to organize it.

I wish I had a whole room to dedicate to crafting, but I’m lucky to get just a corner of a room. I want the space to be organized as well as creative, but that’s a tall order, especially with limited space. I’m inspired by some of the great ideas at Country Living’s Make a craft room photo gallery. Check it out and look at all the cool things you can do with your craft space.

What about your craft space? Do you have a whole room set aside for crafts, or just a desk or a closet? Does your space inspire you, and if not, what could you change in order to make it inspiring?

Craft Funk

Have you ever been in a craft funk? That’s what I call it when I have projects I’m in the middle of but I don’t feel like doing them, or when I see all kinds of cute crafts around me but I still don’t feel inspired to craft.

If you’ve been in a craft funk, how do you cope with it? Here are some of the things I’m thinking about doing:

  • Waiting it out. This isn’t ideal, because I want to get crafting! But surely the funk will disappear sometime on its own, right?!
  • Trying something completely different. Maybe I just need a change of pace. I usually crochet or do paper crafts, so I may try my hand at sewing if I get brave enough. That just might push me out of the craft funk I’m in.
  • Make time for crafting. Sometimes I want to do something crafty but I just can’t find the time. So I’m going to make a special effort to designate some craft time for me.
  • Make something easy. Sometimes you just need a little push in the right direction to get your craft juices going. An easy project might get me on the path back to crafty goodness!

Those are my thoughts on getting rid of this nasty craft funk. Anyone else have some tips they’d like to share?

Changes are coming

Hi! As Eve mentioned, I am going to keep Craft Tutorials going. I’m very excited to be part of such a fun blog, and I plan to make sure there are plenty of tutorials and fun things going on here.

Stay tuned for interesting things to come. I’m planning a site redesign and will probably be moving the site to its own domain. Pardon the dust around here while I’m getting everything situated. I have plenty of tutorials and fun craft ideas coming soon, so be sure to check back.

I appreciate your support of Craft Tutorials and am happy to be part of this crafting community!
