    It is my mum who was always crafting. She made so much things for her children and she take the time to show us how to use what we got under our hands to create new things. She was very amazing.
    Now I’m trying to do the same thing with my grand daughter.

    I love the trio angel.
    Have a nice day

  2. Randy Titus says:

    I’m a dad who gets inspiration from my creative children. They always look at craft projects with a fresh perspective.

    • Sharon says:

      Glad you stopped in, Randy. You are so right, kids aren’t programmed like adults and they really do look at life with fresh eyes. Keeps it fun and creative! Sharon

  3. Holly E. says:

    Great site! I’m still new to it but like what I see.
    I find inspiration all over but to name someone would be my artist friend Jutta. She’s a great encourager! Also, the person I am making something for is my inspiration.

  4. i do a lot of recycle one and then i got my gf hook on them and her mom

  5. Cathy says:

    Hello, just found you site today and became a subscriber. My joy in crafting satifies my need to make something that will bring a smile to someone else, some sunshine.My love of crafting came from my grandmother who pieced and quilted every quilt that I ever slept under

  6. Bev says:

    My Mother enjoyed crafting and now that she is gone I find most of my inspiration from blogs, Pinterest, manufacturer’s websites, etc.

    All of these angels are so lovely and whew…am I glad to know you don’t have to be an angel to make an angel!

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you. I’m loving so many of the responses here. Like you, everyone enjoys a sense of community that comes with crafting. Makes it even more fun! Sharon

  8. Marg says:

    i just love learning new things all the time and if only you could see my craft room im into beading styrofoam balls at the moment and scrapbooking (over 60 albums) and etc etc clever people inspire me.

  9. Amy Pinion says:

    I guess I got my love of crafting from my grandmother. She would make quilts and let me make button balls with scraps of fabric and mismatched buttons. My dad also inspired me. He had a wood shop, and we would spend hours making various things with wood. We would also go to craft stores and dream over new ideas. We did a crafts show together one year, and I think he got more joy over giving children some of the small toys he had made than selling them! I also enjoy giving away the items I make to brighten someone else’s day.

  10. Joy Smith says:

    My grandkids inspire me. I like to listen to them and use their imagination and way of looking at things.

  11. Dee says:

    My family espcially my stepkids inspire me because I love the look on their face when they see what I have made or see something I made for them. Also, knowing that they are learning and create as well.

    Mom mainly but my whole family !!

  13. linda says:

    I got my crafting bug from my grandma. She taught me to sew and design without a pattern. Anything I made was always top quality in her eyes. lol. It became a great outlet from a very sad childhood.

  14. Cindy Kolpek says:

    I work for a care facility (nursing home). I am always looking for great craft projects to do with my Residents. They are the ones who inspire me to plan interesting and creative programs for them.

  15. Nancy D says:

    My grandmother was always knitting, crocheting and sewing. I didn’t have the patience when I was young and I wish I did. Gram is no longer with us, but I still have some of her handcrafted goodness! And a very old knitting book I swiped from my aunt :) And of course people like you, who somehow find the time to blog about these great crafts! I can’t even tell you how many ideas and inspiration I’ve received off of this site and others! Thanks so much!

  16. merrydeals4u says:

    My family and friends inspire and encourage me to create things. Thank-you for the give away!

  17. I owe my love of crafting and creating to, if you can believe, my preschool teacher. I am now 53 years old but I still have vivid memories of when I was four and our teacher showed us how to make a turtle out of all sort of art supplies. I am happy to say I grew up to become a professional crafter and to this day, my mother still has that funny-looking turtle of mine on her kitchen windowsill. Crafts can make for wonderful and lasting memories, especially if you make them with family and friends!

  18. Violet says:

    The person who inspires me is my daughter. She has always been honest with me. At the same time she is always encouraging. She makes me want to craft because I know that she will appreciate it. I would love to win this book. Thank you for giving me the opportunity.

  19. My grandmother is the one who inspired me to sew and craft. Now it’s all of YOU in WordPress! :)

  20. lynaeve says:

    anna maria horner. thanks for the chance!

  21. studiorose says:

    These are great; I especially love the faux rust effect!

    Any book involving Jenny Doh is going to be a great one; I hadn’t seen this before, so thank you for the opportunity to own it! :)

  22. Christine says:

    My mother taught me to knit and has always been my inspiration!

  23. Nancy Carr says:

    My mother started my interest in crafts. I am so happy she did and wish she were here to share with her what I make and enjoy.

  24. Jeanne says:

    My Mom always was doing some craft and I guess I picked up my crafting from her. My 3 daughters are also crafters so it goes on and on.
