Celebrating National Craft Month!

Did you know that over 56% of US household craft each year? Crafting has many benefits, it has been shown to reduce stress, bring family members and friends closer together while learning new skills and it's fun!

I wanted to share a layout I made that also shows another of my favorite craft project, making decorative pillows. I'm not quite ready for the fashion world when it comes to sewing but I do love making pillows. So when my daughter's friend asked if I would make pillows for her daughter's baby room I was more than happy to.

Pillows for Jordan by Tena Ellison. Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper, My Little Shoebox; Alphas: Basic Grey; Pearl Flourish: Prima; Distress Ink: Ranger-Tim Holtz; Cuttlebug & Embossing Folder, Handmade flower.

For those of you who don't make crafts but always wanted to what better time to get started than during National Craft Month. You can check out easy projects from your local craft stores or check out how to videos and tutorials by searching online. There's lots of ways to get started so stop putting off learning something new, you'll be happy you did.

Share your favorite craft projects or if you plan to learn a new one...happy crafting!
