Good Morning Crafters,

I love crafting! For my entire life, I have been immersed in creativity and it seems fitting to celebrate my first Cool2Craft newsletter honoring those timeless projects that have been treasured from generation to generation.

My earliest crafting memories were the hours spent with my sisters playing with all the supplies at my mother’s store.

And, of course, everything for us was all about glue!  It’s with great love and pride that I am continuing my mother’s creative tradition because I think it’s cool to craft!

Over the holidays, I created some Look of Copper Enamel Earrings with my favorite vintage technique using glue and acrylic paint.

Depending on how you apply the paint and glue, you can achieve a look of stone or a look of copper enamel. It’s the coolest!

Click here for the tutorial.
