Happy Birthday Crème de la Craft + Special Announcement!

Today is a very special day for me as my blog turns one year old! I remember being so nervous the night before it launched, having no idea what to expect and where this thing was actually headed. All I can say is that I am so glad I took the leap and am beyond grateful for the support I have received. Seriously, thank YOU! I have been crafting for as long as I can remember and I can't tell you how fulfilling it is to share my passion with all of you and to receive such great feedback and encouragement.

I have been lucky enough to work with some amazing brands over this past year and am thrilled that so many companies are starting to embrace the DIY culture. Most importantly, thank YOU for continuing to follow along, sending emails and sharing your DIY projects inspired by my posts! It's been a special treat seeing those! This post is a big THANK YOU to every single person that has visited my blog.

And now.... I am so excited to announce that starting tomorrow I will be launching a new series on my site called "5 Minute DIYs"! For those of us that may not have the time to dedicate to crafting, but still want a quick DIY pick-me-up, this is for you! These projects will be simple, cheap and quick to make, using items you may already have around the house! I will be sharing my first "5 Minute DIY" tomorrow so be sure to check back.

Again, I can't thank you enough for following me on this journey and inspiring me to continue blogging. I can't wait to share some exciting projects in the works for the rest of the year!

All the best,


  1. Happy 1st anniversary with your lovely blog!!!

    It's great what you reached! I can say you really really catch me from the very first post, not just becasue of the DIYs, but also because of the esthetics and the way the images are done.
    Congratulations for the first year!
