Today I’m writing about one my home girls………..except I didn’t even know she’s a home girl. Portland (oregon) is a mecca for creative and crafting people. I really should get out more. Diane (goes by Sister Diane and you can find out why on her blog) has made an online business out of being crafty.
I get asked a lot about how to make money in the craft industry. I am not sure why I am asked, because I don’t have a craft business, but I have a craft blog……so maybe that’s the confusion. But I do know a lot of crafting bloggers that have been able to turn a dime with their talents.
Sister Diane has a wonderful site where she not only brings many crafty, creative ideas to you, but she also touches on the business aspect of blogging and crafting. Don’t we love her already? She has a few just crafting ebooks and she also has Craft business ebooks. Or maybe you need help in making your craft blog better? She’s got a class for that too. In the mean time, you would probably benefit in her post about Google Analytics for craft blogs. And let us not forget…….POD CASTS! Love those!
Of course she has many tutorials! TUTORIALS! I love a good tutorial.
Rub on’s aren’t just for paper crafts you know. If you don’t have a silhouette machine, but you want to create quick, easy and inexpensive decor for your home……….or even a gift. Rub On’s are your tool for action.
Since it’s a gal from Portland and all……..any fool knows we recycle……a LOT! I love this Easter basket she created from packaging. Take the handle off to use for other purposes. Pretty cool huh?

I haven’t met Diane yet, heck I just found out she’s in my neck of the woods……but I’d love to share a cup of joe over craft talk any day. Please visit her site so she gets lots and lots of hits………then if we ever do meet, she’ll think I’m REALLY cool.
Leave me a comment and I’ll enter you in my monthly giveaway. This month is a necklace from Allora Handmade!
