About Me and Contact

You can find me pretty easily online because I write a lots about crafts. CraftyMarie is the name of my main craft site. I work part time online as a freelance writer, mostly on crafty topics although I also enjoy writing across many other niches too. Crafting and writing have always been my two big passions and life-long hobbies so I get to indulge in the two with my range of websites. The big drive for me is in sharing activities and hobbies that I enjoy and writing them up as tutorials and inspirational pieces so other people can enjoy them too.

Christmas Crafting

There are a number of occasions through the year that I'm particularly drawn to and Christmas is right up there as one of my all time favorites. I always look to use a theme as the basis of my decorating ideas for the Holiday season and my favorite themes are cool winter ones where I draw inspiration from popular movies such as The Chronicles of Narnia and Disney's Frozen. Working to a theme is a lot of fun.

Where to Find Me on Social Media Sites 

While I'm quick to admit that I'd always prefer to be either writing or crafting, I do use social media as well - I'm just not a prolific user of it. I mostly use Twitter, Google + and Pinterest. Facebook is a site I use but just for personal family and friends. Of these, Pinterest is my favorite because I often search the site when stuck for ideas. Here's my social media links:

My Crafting Experience

I describe myself as a lifelong crafter because I got interested in knitting and sewing especially from a very young age. I no longer knit due to the fact that it causes big flare ups of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. However, I taught myself to crochet at the ripe old age of 40 and this doesn't trigger problems with my hands and wrists so long as I'm careful. I'm very much an all-rounder when it comes to making things. I try a lot of things and sometimes they take off and I want to explore more and sometimes I decide that it's not for me. You'll find my favorite Holiday themed ideas and tutorials on this site based on popular techniques which you can easily use.

What You Can Expect

Since I began to come up with a good range of articles on this festive Holiday season, I decided it was time to bring them together into a niche site where they can be better appreciated in the long winter run up to the season. I also got the push to do this when one of the other sites that I was writing on closed and I was left wondering where to put my articles that were then suddenly left homeless. So this place was thought up.

As with the bulk of my work, most of the topics on this site are actually aimed at creative adults like me and perhaps older children. I do some crafts aimed at kids now and then but it's not what I specialize in by any means. Thanks for your visit to the site and for stopping to learn a little bit about me. Please do bookmark or favorite this so you can come again and catch up with the latest things to make and do.
