A Craftcourse Summer

Crafting with Beyonce

Back in February, my friend Emily and I launched a little venture called Craftcourse to bring fun, crafty times to the ladies (and gentlemen, if so inclined) of Nashville. It seems that since that time my blogging has dropped off drastically. I've given some thought to why that might be (because it wasn't exactly a conscious or deliberate decision that I made), and I realized that what drove my love of DIY blogging was the constant need to be creating fun projects and trying new things.

Because we bring our crafty touch to every Craftcourse party/workshop - whether it be making the sample projects or creating crafty little favors for each event - I've found that Craftcourse sort of fulfills that need for me now. Of course, I don't think I'll ever be done with blogging completely, because I still love sharing certain stuff here and contributing to other great sites (as you'll continue to see).

So anyway, I wanted to share a few pics of some of the ridiculously fun stuff we've been doing with Craftcourse this summer to give you have a peek into what's keeping me so busy.
