We are gathering together a creative crop of artist’s friends that will be sharing inspirational FREE tutorials and exclusive kits to help your creativity bloom and grow throughout the year.  You will be able to drop in and find a sprinkling of creative tutorials, a trash to treasure feature and a kid’s corner craft feature by the Creative Gardeners.  Grab a yummy drink to sip on as you find creative inspiration blossoming throughout the month. 

We are excited to be bringing to you our creative tutorials starting on October 1st.   Come back then as we kick off The Creative Patch with some lovely giveaways.  Then the 6th day of each month each artist will be creating some wonderful Creative Garden Kits that you can purchase and create with. Then come back often as we share fun tutorials and creativity throughout the month. 

Please share the creativity that is blooming here at The Creative Patch.

My Dream - The Creative Patch

As young I as can remember I have created things with my hands. Inspired by my loving mother at her sewing machine and my sweet grandma crocheting, I always seem to have a crafting project in the works, sometimes several at one time. I started with counted cross stitch, progressed to paper art, soldering, sewing, jewelry making and mixed media. When I started turning my love of creating into teaching at local venues that is when I truly felt inspired. I have been blessed to meet so many wonderfully, creative women that share my love of crafting. When I began this creative journey, I never imaged all the incredible people I would meet and the wonderful friendships made by sharing my creative passion.

This past year, I have dreamed about expanding this into a larger venue with a few of my creative friends, thus the idea of The Creative Patch was born.  A place blooming with creative tutorials, ideas and artistic kits to nurture your creative soul. Each month, Sarah, Heather and I – along with a few Guest Gardeners will be sharing their creative talents.  My dear friend Leah, will be our first Guest Gardener and I am so glad she decided to join us in October.   Starting October 1st, we will be kicking off our new site with some fun giveaways. You won’t want to miss all the excitement.

See you here in The Creative Patch.
