Stark Mill Creations Blog

Hello everyone!

Once a month there will be a new item posted here that I have created especially for you. Steps on how the card, tag or other item was created, along with a list of the supplies used will be provided.

My hope is that this blog will teach you new things, inspire you to create, and help you to find ways to give everyday (your card or other item might make someone else’s day!). Hopefully you will take away some new piece of information that will help you become a better crafter.

Come along with me on this adventure!

Have you tried doodling?

I recently had several classes with Wendy Vecchi that were all about doodling. Who knew that doodling could be so much fun and produce such wonderful results? I would recommend to anyone that they check out Wendy’s group on Facebook. She’s a great leader and it’s a great group of people who are happy to share with each other.
