My Five Fave Craft Blogs


I am addicted to craft blogs.

My bookmarks are filled to the brim with blogs that inspire me with their beautiful photography, original tutorials and pretty crafts.

I find that blogs that share more than their creative lives, but their inner lives – family, home or even behind-the-scenes of their businesses – are the most appealing to me.

To me these bloggers/artists/designer/makers infuse creativity in almost everything they do, or at least what they share on their gorgeous blogs.

I would love to share my top five favorite craft blogs (in no particular order). For each blog, I also picked my fave blog post and fave DIY.

1. Oh Hello Friend

I love Danni’s whole aesthetic – her vintage sensibility mixed with modern graphics. I’ve been reading her blog for a while – love her photographs, DIY projects and only wished I lived in Cali again so I could visit her retail shop in person!

2. Papernstitch

Brittni was one the first creative entrepreneurs that I started following when I started Catshy Crafts. She gives easy-to-follow advice for creative businesses, creates beautifully photographed tutorials while promoting handmade artists through her exhibition site. Plus, I was also lucky enough to write a guest blog post for her site!

3. Dear Lizzy

Elizabeth (aka Dear Lizzy) is a beautiful designer mom with adorable kids and talented videographer husband, Collin. I first discovered her through my first love – scrapbooking! She has her own line of scrapbooking products, throws fabulous birthday parties for her kids and looks super-stylish doing it all.

4. A Beautiful Mess

 This lifestyle blog is created my two lovely sisters Emma and Elsie on crafts, photography, recipes, beauty, decor, and fashion. (Like Dear Lizzy, I also first found Elsie through the world of scrapbooking – she was much-published scrapbooker in magazines and books and even had her own line.) Today, she and her sister share daily inspiration to help “make life a little bit sweeter.”

5. Mollie Makes

 Mollie Makes is my all-time favorite magazine. So it should be no surprise that the Mollie Makes blog is on my top five list of craft blogs. In case you haven’t picked up a copy of this U.K.-based monthly, run to your nearest craft shop or bookstore! (I pick up my copy at my local Joanns or Barnes and Noble.) Each magazine comes with a free gift – a crafting kit or supplies. It is my dream to someday find myself in the pages of this charming mag.
