CraftShare is a way for us craft lovers to share our crafting experiences, have posts that are more of a dialogue between blogger & readers and expand our crafting horizons together.

Over the summers in 2010 & 2011,  I featured some themed crafting topics.  I shared projects I made in each topic category and give tips & tricks I learned while working on them.  There were also some special guest posters sharing their expertise and projects to keep the ideas rolling.  Here's the schedule & links to what we covered:
