Cleaning House- Craft Sites

I’m back to work and cleaning out “My Favorites”- all the websites I find while lurking around waiting for my Archibus to run it’s routines. I missed all my links while I was “unemployed,” so I’m putting them here so I’ll have them forever and ever.

I’ve found something worthwhile and inspirational on each of these sites. Will I ever use any of these talented people’s creative ideas? Maybe. Maybe not. But I’ll have them at my fingertips whenever I have spare time to do a new project. Bwah-ha-ha!

A Little Hut is a master of paper cutting. Her tutorials are great. I especially love the boxes.

Being Crafty has links for making your own envelopes, which I love doing with old calendars and such.

I don’t know how I came across this site, but the tutorial for making a hardcover book is awesome.

Confessions of a Craft Addict is chock full of ideas. I can’t even list all the projects this one has!

Craft Stylish is an online magazine for sewing, embroidery, crocheting, knitting and more. Hit the “Discover” tab to find the categories.

Handmade by Alissa is the quilting queen bee. She also has a lot of sewing projects.

I love Heart of Mary. I used this tutorial to make my neice, Eliza, a messenger bag for Christmas. I’ll also make Zombiegirl a messenger bag to go into 5th grade with next September.

I love this bag. Someday I will make myself one. She also has my phone.

This year I’m making ALL my Christmas cards. Hopefully. This will be one of them.

Mirkwood Designs has tons of templates for envelopes, take out boxes and woven hearts.

Moda Bake Shop is so clever. It’s a division of Moda Fabrics (which I love, and don’t have) and they package their fabrics so you can tell what each “recipe” project needs. And they’re coordinated.

Oh, Fransson! is another quilting queen. She’s got beautiful tutorials.

More box templates.

I love the idea of this perpetual photo wall calendar.

Plum Pudding keeps popping up with all her good ideas on some of the other blogs I frequent.

RosieMoomBeams has great trash-to-treasure projects.

The Purl Bee has tons of tutorials, but I learned how to use my rotary cutter with this tutorial.

Schlosser Designs also has great tutorials- I especially like this pizza box.

A Mingled Yarn has a wonderful Diaper Bag that could double as a messenger bag. I’m going to make a diaper bags for the craft fair- these will be the guide. Also some great tutorial links.

I love YoYo Angels.

The Ultimate Purse List on Craftster!

More templates for cards or scrapbooking.

Cute, free graphics for stationary by Graphic Garden.

Close to My Heart Scrapbooking. Is Ami still consulting?

Okay. The links are safe, now. Let them lay me off again. I’m prepared.
