Craftbits.com: Cool Craft Ideas, Cool Features

Posted by Kimberly on October 30, 2007

craftbitsscreen.GIFIf you craft, want to craft, or have only briefly thought about doing a craft, you’ve got to check out Craftbits.com!  I had so much fun at this site, that I had literally had to force myself to close my browser window and call it a night!

Unlike most crafting sites who post ideas, Craftbits.com is truly interactive!  Visitors are invited to take advantage of free membership that has some awesome features, such as:  ability to bookmark favorite projects and articles, submit your own projects to be recognized and rated, access to the exclusive members only craft advice section, exclusive entry into craft competitions, access to members only promotions and freebies, and direct email notifications of project updates and upcoming competitions.

If you don’t get swamped with the membership freebies, then you’ll no doubt get bogged down in all the great craft ideas on every subject or occasion you can imagine!  With each click to a new category, I found myself simply amazed at the amount of information presented.   Simply put:  thank heavens that I live 45 minutes away from the nearest crafting store!  Otherwise, I’d probably be broke by this afternoon from a craft supply shopping frenzy!

An interactive, user friendly website with so many unique craft ideas…who’s behind it all?  According to the About Us at Craftbits.com, this huge endeavor is run by only two women; a mother/daughter team who enjoy crafting.  Rita and Shellie Wilson, of Brisbane, Australia, have extensive experience in crafting; having been teachers of crafts “to the young, old and disabled” along with owning and operating craft supply stores.

There’s so many wonderful things to do at Craftbits.com.  I recommend having a minimum of three hours to spend there before going….’cause once you’re there, it’s hard to leave! )
