What will you create in National Crafting Month? - My WAHM Plan

What will you create in National Crafting Month?


It all started innocently enough on Friday evening. I entered a cool giveaway on Instagram for a wonderful craft prize bundle to celebrate March National Crafting Month. I entered and naturally shared the love with a couple of my crafty friends. One of these friends direct messaged me to ask what I’m going to create this month. Great question I said! Because, it seriously is a great question. I may make a new spring wreath, or new garden stakes and plant markers, or I could finally allow myself to set aside the time to learn a new craft like crewel embroidery like my Mom used to do. Or maybe I’ll make a simple pastel flower garland to brighten our hearth and welcome spring. The possibilities are truly endless thanks to all the fun classes available with Bluprint!

Have you heard of Bluprint?

According to their website, Bluprint is where makers come to do what they love best. Make creativity easy with classes, project ideas, patterns and more! I’m simply enchanted with all the crafting and learning possibilities! With over 1, 300 online classes to choose from, I’m sure you can find a class or two you’d be interested in as well. For instance, I had originally thought I’d love to learn Crewel Embroidery because my Mom enjoyed making pretty pieces like these pillows below, but I read the class overview and found this style of embroidery is in the intermediate to difficult level, so I’ll have to stay with the basics for a bit longer.
