Letter from the Crafty Goddess 7/6/2010

My name is Charity Tipton and I am absolutely obsessed with crafting. I love to learn about all kinds of crafts. In this blog I will spotlight several different areas of the craft genre and also spotlight the crafter of the month. If you would like to be the Crafter of the month just send an email telling me that is what you want. If you have a craft that you would like to see on here please let me know. There will also be a Pattern of the month and craft tips. I have been looking online and have seen several different crafts that I, myself, would like to try. Let me tell you a little more about me and why I am doing this blog.

Like I said, my name is Charity, and I am a 33 yr old wife, mother of 2 little girls and stepmother to 2 teens. I have been doing plastic canvas for about 5 years now. I started doing PC when I was pregnant with my youngest child. I was put on bed rest because of going into premature labor at 29 weeks and my mother got me started doing PC to keep me busy so that I was not going nuts just looking at the same four walls.

I not only do designs that I find in pattern books that I have but also have created a few patterns. For example, I had a pattern for a block calender of a lighthouse. I cut the lighthouse off and made it orange and white with a "T" on it for Tennessee because we bleed orange (Go Vols!). I also made matching coasters from a pattern that I had for sachets. They were the perfect size. There is no limit to what you can do with a pattern once you take a look at it. you can transform them into anything.

The reason that I have started this blog is because I love crafts and know that there are other people out there that do also. As soon as I see how many followers that I can get, I will start getting things together to turn this blog into a magazine. The magazine will have all of the same things that this blog has except there will be a challenge for all readers to send in pics of crafts that they have done based on a certain theme and each month the theme will change.

So, with all of that said, please enjoy the blog and please tell your friends about it. I hope to get feedback from you all and would love your input. Below is my email address. Please in the subject line please put "Crafty Goddess Blog" so that I will know that it is about this blog. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and I hope to have things together soon for my next entry and even have pics. Thanks again and I hope to talk to you all soon.

My email address is docsangel@att.net
